Each ball that Collin Morikawa throws turns gold. After two years of professionalism, the American has a bank account of $ 23,447,000. The figure refers only to prizes won on the field: sponsors and “tokens” are in fact excluded.

Collin Morikawa, statements

Ready with the calculator: Collin pocketed $ 1,488 for every stroke he played in one of 61 professional games he played. Figures that say a lot about the level of this professional who, given his degree in Economics from Berkley, will know very well how to invest the prizes won so far.

After all, his palmares do nothing but confirm his stuff: at the age of 24 Collin Morikawa won five victories on the PGA Tour and was the first American to win the Race to Dubai, the order of merit of the European Tour. is in golf history for having won both the 2020 PGA Championship and the 2021 Open Championship as a freshman (only Tiger Woods had done so before he turned 25).

A few more numbers to give you an idea of ​​how well Collin is on the right track. In addition to the five statements, his resume boasts four second places and twenty top ten in his career (I repeat: he has only played 61 races as a professional). Since starting with professionalism Morikawa has started the cut twenty-two consecutive times: only one player has done better than him, coming to play the weekend 25 times in a row as a rookie (too easy to understand who he is). By monetizing it all, we can establish that each tournament has earned Collin the not so modest sum of over $ 400,000. In practice, 103 thousand for every 18 holes played.

Such an important palmares is equivalent to an equally important climb to the world ranking. Morikawa ended 2021 in second place, behind the Spaniard Jon Rahm. To tell the truth, the American had the opportunity of a momentary overtaking but at the Hero World Challenge in December he stopped at the best. Not bad since there is a lot of room for him to beat another record. Aside from Tiger (he became number one in the world at 21), Jordan Spieth holds the record for the fastest ranking. Collin’s compatriot became strong in the world at the age of 25 after only 77 races as a professional. The remaining sixteen should be enough for Morikawa.
