Collin Morikawa Wins the British Open
Making his first appearance at the event, Collin Morikawa on Sunday won the British Open by two strokes.
A year ago, Morikawa won the P.G.A. Championship in his debut at the tournament. Morikawa, 24, becomes the first male golfer to win two different major golf championships while playing in them for the first time. Overall, he has competed in only eight majors in his career. He is the fourth American to win the British Open in the past 10 years.
It was the fifth victory for Morikawa in a PGA Tour-sanctioned event. He has had seven top 10 finishes this year, including a victory in the World Golf Championship-Workday Championship. Raised in California, he graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, and turned pro in 2019. In his first 14 months on tour, he had eight top 10 finishes.
