Collin Morikawa Winning the P.G.A Championship 2020 had an awkward moment with his girlfriend who is said to be the woman behind his success. He was magical during the entire championship. This was the first major tournament that came to completion after the March halt due to the pandemic. With the 23-year-old grabbing everyone’s attention, the spectacle was a once-in-a-lifetime kind of experience. Collin Morikawa, the young man, turned pro just last year. After the win, Collin said, “I’m so excited, but it feels like this is where I’m supposed to be.”

Championship after the outbreak of the pandemic.

The coronavirus pandemic has upended all sports throughout. The P.G.A Championship 2020 was long-awaited, which became a magical spectacle for everyone. What has become a pathetic situation after the outbreak of the pandemic became a wonderful experience with the young man on the fields at the 102nd P.G.A. Championship at T.P.C. Harding Park in San Francisco.

Collin’s name was etched on the Wanamaker trophy with only his second appearance at a major championship with a final-round six-under-par 64. With this, the 23-year-old native of Californian became the third-youngest winner of the P.G.A. Championship. Since the P.G.A. Championship in 1958 became a stroke-play event, only Jack Nicklaus & Rory McIlroy in 1963 & 2012 were younger respectively.

The P.G.A. Championship 2020 will be remembered for a number of reasons. The fact that it was the first major sports to be players post the pandemic shut down would be the most important to list out. With the absence of fans and almost no noise of the cheers of the fans on the course. And, it will also be remembered for the Morikawa hitting that magical shot that drove his ball to seven feet from the hole at the 294-yard, par-4 16th from the tee.

The championship initially was slated for May this year at Harding Park on the southwestern edge of San Francisco that is four weeks after the traditional opening major for the men’s tour. Per the new schedule, the Masters will be played at Augusta National in mid-November while the United States Open at Winged Foot between June to mid-September. Since World War II, this has been the first the only men’s major of the British Open to be organized out of the United States to have been canceled.

Morikawa going into the final round two shots off the lead finished ahead of the runner ups Dustin Johnson & Casey at 13 under, two shots. In a small time span, Morikawa has three victories on his PGA Tour. Receiving the trophy on the 18th green, he said, “to close it out in San Francisco which is pretty much my second home, where I spent the last four years, is pretty special.”

After receiving the trophy, Collin Morikawa and girlfriend Katherine Zhu had a very awkward moment. Winning this PGA championship, the young player has captured the first major of his career, which was held in San Francisco.

After he won, he went on to celebrate and headed towards his girlfriend. Morikawa almost went on to closely embrace his girlfriend, and he was about to kiss her. It was when he suddenly realized that it was going something really awkward, and he pulled back. They exchanged a high-five though. They avoided a kiss maybe because of the COVID-19 mask protocol and went for a cozy hug. Zhu, who is also a golfer, has accompanied Morikawa at a recent number of occasions. The couple has been in a relationship since 2017. Collin Morikawa P.G.A Championship 2020 victory was a special moment for both.
