Senior Easton Morris is a dedicated student and athlete here at Trinity High School. He is a member of the varsity golf team and will use his knowledge and experience to further his education of behind the scenes of golf. 

Morris says, “I started playing golf right in the beginning of the Covid scare in 2020 and I’ve been playing ever since. I played because I watched my grandfather (John Rodenski) play all the time since he was retired and, I wanted to play with him. Then I grew to love the sport.”

In the fall, Morris will be attending Methodist University in Fayetteville, North Carolina, majoring in Professional Golf Management. This will allow him to truly learn the ins and outs of golf and give him a chance to graduate with a business degree. One of the reasons he is attending this school is because a previous Trinity graduate and friend of Morris,’ Colton Deems, also attends there. 

The program at Methodist University will allow him to graduate with a Bachelor in Science degree in the following: Business Administration, Marketing, Accounting or Financial Economics with a concentration in PGA management. 

Although he will not be actually playing on the official Methodist University golf team, he will complete the Players Ability Test and be able to play during any matches that are not NCAA associated. 

Morris explains, “My grandfather has been my biggest inspiration. He taught me how to play, helped me learn, and did just about anything I needed to do to get better at golf.”

Ultimately, his goal is to work for a big name brand in golf or be able to work and play at a pristine golf course in the future. 

Morris’ advice to younger students on the golf team is to, “Listen to your coach, stay out of your head, and finish every round like you just started.”

Trinity High School wishes Morris the best of luck in continuing his education and journey into Professional Golf Management.
