They call it the ‘Old Man’ trophy.

It features an elderly gentleman, leaning on his golf club, and it’s perched atop a trophy that goes to the winner of the Morgan Stanley Shootout.

More often than not, that ‘Old Man’ trophy has been housed in Middleton, and this year was no different.

The Cardinals fired a two-day total of 600 and won the Shootout that was held last Wednesday and Thursday at University Ridge Golf Course. Madison Edgewood was an extremely distant second with 626 at the 12-team tournament.

‘This is probably one of the best tournaments to win,” Middleton senior Brady Thomas said. “It’s at the state venue and it’s against some of the top teams in the area, so we all want to beat each other.”

Middleton has now won this event 14 of 25 years, and the Cardinals’ score of 600 was the third-lowest in tournament history.
