Morris was the son of a weaver, and began golf by age ten, it is said by knocking wine bottle corks pierced with nails. He is regarded as the world's first professional golfer and  was the second-best player in St. Andrews. He was influential in establishing the Open Championship in 1860.
The memorial and grave statue pictured can be seen in the graveyard of the St Andrews Cathedral Fife.
