Social media explodes in reaction to Morikawa triumph


The world of golf is seriously impressed by Collin Morikawa.

Who wouldn’t be? The 24-year-old has a game developed well beyond his years, is one of the best ball-strikers the world has ever seen and possesses a steely mentality that will have his fellow tour pros quaking in their boots for years to come.

A bogey-free final round when it mattered most is proof of the winning instinct that Morikawa boasts. Five PGA Tour titles, two of them majors, in his first 50 starts as a professional tells you that.

Morikawa even received congratulations from golf's greatest ever major champion, Jack Nicklaus. With two major trophies already won before the age of 25, Nicklaus must be wondering whether there's a potential for his 18 major titles record to be surpassed.
