Johnny Morris Enjoys Fifth Legends

RIDGEDALE, Mo--If you have any doubts about the magic that Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris possesses, just look at yesterday's Legends of Golf.     

The forecast was for 100 percent chance of rain.

Yet Championship Sunday at Top of the Rock was nearly 100 percent dry.

In fact the sun shined on Johnny's champions tour event for hours during round four.

Kirk Triplett holed in this pitch out of the sand on the first playoff hole to lead his team with Paul Broadhurst to victory.

It's the fifth Legends since the event moved to the Ozarks and Johnny Morris says it keeps getting better and better.

"It was super.  I think to me, when Tiger was here, to see all those kids and their parents  bringing them.  And realizing there's other education then just in the classroom.  I'm a big fan of that.  That was a highlight as well.  And just how genuine all the golfers are and the fishing legends that were here.  They love to spend time with their fans and with the young people.  That to me is the biggest joy of this whole thing," said Johnny Morris.
