Morgan Nelson Shopping For More Wins

For the second time in as many weeks, Gil Morgan will try to defend a title. For the third time in as many starts, Larry Nelson will try to win an event. This week at the Kroger Senior Classic, something has to give.
Last week, Morgan successfully defended the Comfort Classic, when the third round was cancelled due to rain. It was 'Doc's' third title of the season.
Nelson didn't make the trip to Indianapolis. After winning the FleetBoston Classic and the Foremost Insurance Championship in succession, Nelson decided to give the rest of the 50-and-over guys a chance at the Brickyard Crossing.
In addition to Nelson and Morgan, Hale Irwin and Bruce Fleisher will be in attendance at The Golf Center at Kings Island in Mason, Ohio. Fleisher currently leads Nelson by $147,051. Irwin trails 'Flash' by $257,058. First place this week pays $210,000.
