David Morland Wins Dothan National Classic

David Morland has been waiting for this moment for the past four months. Morland shot a -2 under par 70, holding off Cole Moreland by one stroke to win the Dothan National Classic on Friday.

Morland finished with a three-day total of 208, good for -8 under par. Moreland finished one stroke back, with Jimmy Brandt two strokes off the pace. Brandt shot a -7 under par 65 during his final round to make a push at the top of the leaderboard.

It's been a long year for Morland, who had shoulder surgery in late January following a car accident. He began playing professionally once again in early April, and took home his first win of the year at this week's stop on the Emerald Coast Golf Tour.

But, it wasn't easy. Morland got off to a slow start, and actually trailed Cole Moreland heading to the 16th hole. That's when Morland showed the form that helped him win on the Nationwide Tour and Canadian Pro Tour in recent years.

Morland birdied the 16th and 17th holes to take the lead. Despite a bogey on his final hole, Morland held on for the Dothan National Classic title and an $8,000 paycheck.

Former Houston Academy standout and Future Masters Champion Glenn Northcutt finished 10th, with a three-day total of 215, good for -1 under par.
