Collin Morikawa delivers with a remarkable eagle to win 2020 PGA Championship

The final round of the 2020 PGA Championship at Harding Park in San Francisco was extremely dramatic. For many golf fans, they were on the edge of their couch watching on television, because they could not be in attendance due to coronavirus.

At one point in fact, there was a seven-way tie between Collin Morikawa of Los Angeles, California, Matthew Wolff of Simi Valley, California, Australia’s own Jason Day (the 2015 PGA Championship winner), Dustin Johnson of Columbia, South Carolina (the 2016 United States Open winner), Scottie Scheffler of Ridgewood, New Jersey, Tony Finau of Salt Lake City, Utah, and Paul Casey of Cheltenham, England. All seven were at -10.

So who of the seven would be victorious? The answer was the 23-year-old Collin Morikawa. In only his second major event, Morikawa came through with an unbelievable eagle on the 16th hole to finish up the tournament with a score of -13. He would beat Casey and Johnson by two strokes, and five others (Wolff, Day, Scheffler, Finau, and Bryson DeChambeau of Modesto, California, by three strokes.

What made Morikawa’s eyebrow-raising shot magnificent is the fact his tee-shot on the par-four 16th hole went on the green. He had a legitimate chance for an eagle, which he was then successfully able to sink.

Morikawa has now won three career PGA Tour events. In 2019, he won the Barracuda Championship with 47 points, and then just last month, won the Workday Charity Open in a dramatic playoff over Justin Thomas.

At number five in the world, Morikawa has got the skillset to remain competitive on the PGA Tour for the next decade. The PGA Championship is the first of three majors this season as it is preceding the U.S. Open and Masters.
