A new global sports star – 23 year old Collin Morikawa

What had you achieved by the time you were 23?

Not judging and there is no wrong answer, but there is a name we are likely to be hearing a lot about in the coming years that you might like to know about, given his achievements so far.

It’s 23 year old Collin Morikawa.

He can drive a golf ball 274 yards at a speed of 165 mph and doing just that under pressure landed the Californian his first major golf title and a cheque for $1,980,000 thanks to his -13 under total in the PGA Championship in San Francisco.

He’s not easily rattled. There was a 7 way tie for the lead on the last day and the Californian hit the lowest final round by a PGA champion in 25 years, for a two-shot victory over Paul Casey and Dustin Johnson.

Morikawa joins Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus as 23-year-olds to win the PGA.

CBS TV in the US reckon he’s capable of unreal unrale shots!

He comes across as a sound fella too.

Mind you his big win didn’t go entirely to plan!

Remember the name!
