Morikawa, fresh off college, triumphs on PGA Tour

News

RENO, Nev. — Collin Morikawa birdied his last three holes Sunday to win the Barracuda Championship, making him the second recent college alumni to win on the PGA Tour this summer.

Morikawa closed with seven birdies against no bogeys in the modified Stableford scoring system, giving him 14 points at Montreaux Golf and Country Club.

The Cal graduate finished with 47 points for a three-point victory over Troy Merritt, who had an eagle chip on the par-5 18th for the win and wound up making par when the chip ran 12 feet by the hole.

Morikawa joins Matthew Wolff of Oklahoma State as players who have gone straight from college to winning on the PGA Tour. Morikawa was runner-up to Wolff at the 3M Open in Minnesota three weeks ago.
