REED CITY - Fischer Morrison had reason to be excited with his sophomore golf season coming up in the spring of 2020.

He had played golf in 2019 for Reed City as a freshman.

"I got 18th place in the conference," he said referring to the Central State Activities Association. Morrison's average for 18 holes in 2019 was an 86.

If there was a season this year, Morrison was hoping to chop down his average to a 76.

His improvement would have come "probably in my putting and reading my greens a little better," Morrison said.

Chipping has usually been his strength.

Morrison said he usually plays two or three times a week. He also works at Spring Valley Golf Course, Reed City's home site. On April 3, the MHSAA canceled the 2020 spring sports season.

"I was kind of bummed because I thought I would have a pretty good chance to go to state this year," he said.

But Morrison has been playing as much golf as he can on his own.

Reed City's High School team had a new coach this season with Chris Hanson.

Morrison didn't start playing golf until three years ago.

"I used to play baseball, and I started hitting (golf balls) and they were going straight, so I decided, 'I'm going to playing this sport," he said.

Golf is his only high school sport. Morrison will be a junior next season and is obviously looking forward to it.

He called Spring Valley "a lot easier" compared to other courses, but added, "for some people, it's a little tougher."
