Anna Morgan already has won a WSCGA tournament this year and could be on the verge of claiming an even bigger title.

The Spartanburg junior has the lead at the WSCGA Amateur championship being played at Thornblade Club in Greer.

Morgan carded one of only two under par rounds when she posted a 3-under par 69 to move into the lead of the 54 hole championship.

The winner of the WSCGA Green Valley Junior Classic last month made four birdies and only one bogey. Two of her birdies came on a pair of the difficult par 3 holes at Thornblade.
