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.
