A lot has been made of the youth movement in professional golf with the likes of Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka, etc. But an even younger youth movement is taking place in 2019, and Collin Morikawa is part of it. Morikawa is a member of the collegiate “Big Three” consisting of himself, Matthew Wolff and Viktor Hovland, all of whom turned professional this year after outstanding NCAA careers. Morikawa attended the University of California in Berkeley for four years, and almost immediately made his mark on tour. He finished runner-up to Wolff at the 3M Open in Minnesota, and then found himself in the winner’s circle at the Barracuda Championship in July, defeating runner-up and established PGA Tour winner Troy Merritt. Former tour player and radio personality Carl Paulson believes of the “Big Three,” Morikawa has the most complete game. Time will tell if that proves to be true, but barring injury, Morikawa is certain to be haunting the top of the leaderboard for years to come.
