Colin Morikawa, 2x major champioin and rising PGA TOUR superstar has his eyes set on 2022 ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP!
Morikawa, 25, has emerged as one of the most exciting young talents in recent years. Since turning professional in 2019, he has won five times on the PGA TOUR including two major championships, the 2020 PGA Championship and 2021 Open Championship. He started his PGA TOUR career with 22 consecutive made cuts, second only to Tiger Woods’ 25-cut streak and was also the first American golfer to win the DP World Tour Race to Dubai title last year. In the recently concluded 2021-22 PGA TOUR Season, the World No. 8 finished T21 in the TOUR Championship after posting eight top-10s, including top-5 finishes at the Masters and U.S. Open. Morikawa will be making his fourth straight appearance at the ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP, with a tied seventh in 2021 being his best finish.
He said: “I’ve played in every ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP since 2019 and it’s a tournament that I mark out on my calendar at the start of every year. Japan is an amazing country and the fans are incredible. The Morikawa family name goes back generations to Kumamoto, Japan, and having the opportunity to compete in a country with deep family roots is something I take great pride in. I look forward to concluding my year with some delicious Japanese food, playing on a great golf course and hopefully securing a win along the way.”
