Did you know?

From 2015 to 2019 Morikawa enjoyed a very successful collegiate golf career at the University of California, Berkeley. During this time he represented the USA in two Arnold Palmer Cups, a Walker Cup and an Eisenhower Trophy. He was also the world's No.1 ranked amateur for three weeks in 2018.

Turning pro in 2019, he needed just six professional starts to record his first PGA Tour win. A year later he won again on the Tour, which was quickly followed by a major championship win on his debut in the US PGA Championship.
