Collin Morikawa reveals “creepy” habit

Collin Morikawa Creepy Pga

Collin Morikawa might be the third-best golfer in the world right now, but he’s always on the hunt for ways to improve.

The two-time major winner revealed he is constantly casting an eye on what his peers are doing in a bid to better his own game, but refrains from asking questions.

Instead, he watches from a distance in order to learn from others, a habit he admitted sounds “creepy”.

However, he believes mixing with other stars has helped him improve all facets of his game – and plans to do the same at this week’s PGA Championship.

“I’m kind of a silent hunter,” Morikawa said.

“I don’t really go and ask and chirp and bother these guys. I just watch from afar which sounds really creepy when I say it.

“But that’s what I do. Xander Schauffele has moved out to Vegas and we’ve played a bunch together. You just kind of watch and grasp how other people do it.

“It doesn’t have to be Xander. There’s a whole bunch of guys. When we play on team events like the Ryder Cup you just watch.

“There’s so much knowledge there that when you sit back and actually listen, you can gain so much and learn so much about what they do and what makes them so great.

“That’s not to say I’m going to copy them, because at the end of the day there’s no way for me to copy what they do. We have completely different feels and what they tell me may not be exactly what I feel, so it’s just about piecing a lot of different things together and making yourself think in a different way.”
