Lorcan Morris won the first annual City of Myrtle Beach Mayor's Cup Amateur Championship in 2006. On Sunday, he won it again.

Morris, 35, a native of Dublin, Ireland, is now a U.S. citizen, and lives in Boiling Springs, North Carolina. He shot 3-over par at the 54-hole event to win by twelve shots over defending champion and four-time Mayor's Cup winner Phil Pfeiffer.

A field of 60 golfers played at Whispering Pines, Pine Lakes Country Club, and Grande Dunes Resort Course over its three days.

Morris shot par scores of 72 and 70 the first two days of the tournament. He finished with a final round of 3-over par 75 at Grande Dunes.

Morris quit the game for seven years after winning 11 professional events. He regained his amateur status and is now back at the top of his game.

Morris has caddied on both the PGA and LPGA Tours. He's carried the bag for Michelle Wie, and even used one of her old drivers this week at the Mayor's Cup.

For winning this year's Mayor's Cup, Morris told ABC 15 that he won a one-hundred dollar gift certificate to Whispering Pines.
