13th ranked Collin Morikawa clenches the victory in a close match against Justin Thomas and wins the Workday Charity Open to bag his 2nd PGA Tour win.
Collin Morikawa started his career with 22 consecutive made cuts, second only to Tiger Woods’ 25 cuts when he started his career. He has won 2 PGA Tours and finished as runner-up on 2 at just 23 years of age.
The 23-year-old got his 2nd PGA win on Sunday in the Workday Charity Open in only his 24th pro start. Collin Morikawa had this to say after his win “Justin wasn’t going to give it to me. He was fighting through the entire day,” he also said, “I’m excited right now, I’m so happy.”
After 4 rounds both of them were tied 19 under par, in the first playoff hole for birdies Thomas started strong by sinking a more than 50-foot putt. Unfortunately, he got stuck behind a tree after he missed his fairway on the 3rd hole of the playoff and missed a 15-foot par putt after he was flawless throughout the first 3 rounds. Collin Morikawa clenched the victory after his 2-putt par.
After the match, Thomas said “It’s completely unacceptable to give up a 3-shot lead with three to go,” He also said “I’m upset, I’m disappointed in myself. But at the end of the day, it’s over with now, and I just need to take some time this afternoon and tonight to build on it and figure out what I can do better going into next week.”
PGA Tour’s official Twitter account posted an image of Collin Morikawa drinking a milkshake while holding onto his trophy. The tournament ended with Collin Morikawa as the winner, Justin Thomas as the runners up, Norway’s Viktor Hovland as the 3rd place finisher and Chase Seiffert came in at fourth.
