Morrow edges Sweet for AP Shootout crown

John Morrow of Camano Island sank a 25-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to shoot a one-under-par 71, edging out Sunland head pro Tyler Sweet by a shot to win the second annual AP's Shootout at SkyRidge Golf Course on June 27.

Some of the best golfers on the peninsula took part in the shootout. Any amateur or pro with a single-digit handicap from the area was invited to compete for a winner-take-all cash prize. The course was set up at its longest yardage with two flags on each green. Pin placements were arranged to reflect the talent of the players on the course.

It was Morrow's first time to play the course.

Mike Dupuis of Peninsula Golf Club came in with a 73 for third place.
