COLUMBIA — Columbia's Adam Morrison, 19, won the the 2012 19-and-under Disc Golf Amateur World Championship on Saturday. He took the lead by two strokes after seven 18-hole rounds and a final nine. He is the first Missourian to hold a world title in disc golf.

The 2012 PDGA World Championships were held this week in Charlotte, N.C. More than 1,100 players competed in the event, making it the largest disc golf tournament ever, according to organizers. Also representing Columbia was George Smith, who played in the Professional Masters division, for players over 40.

Morrison has been playing since July 1998. He has practiced disc golf at Oakland Park ever since. Morrison is the current Blue Bird Series Missouri State Amateur Champion and holds a record for disc golf in the Show-Me State Games.
