The Nelsons posted a 133 which was good for second place. The top two teams were not playing with each other, however.
The came Morgan's sixth career ace.
The talk of the day was the fact that three golfers made holes-in-one on No. 17, a par-3, 123-yard downhill shot that saw the pin tucked on the left edge of the green.
In addition to Morgan, Patrick Gordon and Colton Tisdale also aced the hole.
The teams of John Dement and Sidney Bowers and Tisdale and Rex Gentry tied for third at 135.
Fifth place also was shared by the teams of Guy Gloriosos and John Rea and Reggie Little and Tommy Little. Both fired 136.
Andy Lucovich and Dennis Foster had sole possession of seventh place with a 137.
