Brian Graham Shifts From PDGA to Morris

By Matt Swenson, January 11, 2017

It’s funny you are leaving PDGA but will now run the collegiate championship.

That was part of the attraction to me. I can go on to a new business and new challenges but stay involved in disc golf, which is a sport I love very much.

Tell us more about Morris and what other events you’ll oversee.

Morris is primarily a media company—it owns newspapers, TV stations and media guides, and its headquarters are here in Augusta. But they are a diverse company; they own farms and sporting entities. They own the National Barrel Horse Association, which runs Augusta Futurity, the largest cutting horse event east of the Mississippi. The association sanctioned 2,000 events last year.

What strengths will you bring to Morris?

I think something I’ve always been good at is quality control and giving things a professional look. I also think I bring a fresh perspective, especially with equine events. It’s always good to have an outside person looking at an organization.
