2020 PGA Championship Leaderboard, Winner: 23-year-old Colin Morikawa, Stars of Golf with Historical Victory


Leaving behind a stacked leaderboard and some of the game’s biggest names with nine all-time shots, 23-year-old Coleen Morikawa fired a stunner on Sunday, finishing 6-under 64 in the final round. Of shooting To win the 2020 PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park. Morikawa solidified his role as the face of golf’s youth movement, finishing his first major opportunity of his career by finishing two shots on the field under 13 for the tournament.

With the win, Morikawa joined Jack Nicklas (1963), Tiger Woods (1999) and Rory McElroy (2012) at the age of 23 as Wannamaker Trophy holders. He is also the third youngest player to win a PGA Championship in a round of stroke play. The ninth golfer to win the event in his debut.

The relationship with those legends will be remembered by his victory in San Francisco, where he is from. No, how it would be that Morikawa hung up the championship in the balance and snatched it up with some of the biggest names in the game, some of the best shot-making we’ve seen in recent major championship history.

It started at No. 14, when he rebounded to chip in Birdie with a perfect second shot and smashed the logjam into a 10-under par, which was the ceiling for much of the afternoon. That lead was touched by seven players throughout the day, but Morikawa’s chip-in made him a leader they all had to chase.

Morikawa then delivered a campaign that would go down as one of the best shots in PGA Championship history. His tee shot at number 16 – a 294-yard-worthy parley 4 that created the ultimate risk-reward balance for all leaders down the stretch – was hit on a right line that tucked Snug to 7 feet. Morikawa made that epic drive with the Eagles put the tournament on ice.

Morikawa’s book always includes praise for his hitting the ball and his weak nature, which is recognized as his weakness. To walk and bury that put – and many more down the stretch – displayed a well-rounded superstar in total control of his talent.

Starting at Morikawa, break the top of the leaderboard at the 2020 PGA Championship.

1. Colin Morikawa (-13): While this PGA Championship will be the starting point for many, don’t forget that Morikawa really solidified himself as one of the stars of the 2020s when he defeated Justin Thomas in a playoff at Muirfield Village at the Workday Charity Open. It was a warning shot over the entire bow, and was a ship-sinking missile from the best ball-striker on the PGA Tour.

T2. Dustin Johnson (-11): A 54-hole lead with the final duo’s treatment and yet, DJ falls short of a major championship. Unlike some other similar examples from its major championship history, it did not contain any obvious errors or defamatory moments. Two late birdies, after both were pulled by Morikawa, gave him a runner-up status, but for most of the round, he was stuck in controversies thanks to his work before Sunday. Johnson did not do much wrong, but he did not possess enough to win.

T2. Paul Casey (-11): This is only Casey’s second top-10 finish in the PGA Championship, but ending near the top at a peak is nothing new for the 43-year-old Englishman. This is his 10th top-10 finish and first runner-up in a major championship, and while he played enough to emerge from the pack, keeping pace with Morikawa was not enough. Great golf all week, just short of waving a few magical shots to Wannamaker.

T4. Jason Day (-10): It was a championship that seemed ripe for Day Tech as it sought its second PGA Championship. His game was superb in the top three tournaments of the week, and he looked healthy in just a few years, as TPC are doing their work around Harding Park, who were among the leaders of the entire week after scoring 65 goals in the opening round Were one. Unfortunately, it was Morikawa’s time, but the success here should be noted as we move forward keeping an eye on the next two major championships.

T4. Bryson Dekambo (-10): Before Morikawa’s epic drive at 16, Bryson set himself up for an almost equally dramatic tournament-changing moment. His drive bounced around the edge of the green and rested on top of the greenside bunker, which gave DeKambo a 16-foot look at the Eagles. He ended up settling for Birdy, and thus remained in a log jam at 10-under. Frustration will be set when 8 and 9 are realized in back-to-back bogeys, as he lost the championship, but his hot start and strong finish should be accepted as evidence that Dechambo’s new The game major champions are ready.

T4. Tony Finau (-10): Compared to Bryson’s huffing and puffing, the Funeu version of the Bash brothers’ approach looks silky smooth. It was a pleasure to see the two of them working around TPC Harding Park, but Finau’s performance was not as good as the average performance on the field as a single hole or duo, after playing the hole well Also left with lots of pars.

T4. Matthew Wolfe (-10): It was Wolfe’s first major championship, and he was forced to go to the playoffs after firing 65 early in the afternoon. Wolff did not have a bad round all week; He simply hobbled around and then suddenly arrived at the club house as a contender to win with a low score, while the leaders’ backs were running at nine. Wolff battled with Morikawa at the NCAA level and would have another chance in the future to repeat that back-end over the following years and decades.

T4. Scotty Scheffler (-10): Speaking of first-timers, Scheffler did not buckle, as you might expect, with a rogue playing alongside Johnson in the final pairing on Sunday in a major championship. There were mistakes that prevented him from blocking opportunities, but a three-birdie, one-bogey round could be quite good under other circumstances.

9. Justin Rose (-9): A really strong week for Rose, who is working through club changes and adjustments to his game throughout 2020. He showed some signs of life on his return from lockdown and played solid golf throughout the week in San Francisco. This is his third top 10 in the PGA Championship and 17th top 10 in a prominent position, but Rose still wants to stop the drought that wins the January 2019 dates.

T10. Xander Scheffel, Joel Demen, Cameron Champion (-8): Late tee time brought the champ to the headlines, and when the leaders began to reduce the pace they were not able to deliver enough shots. Still rotating in form, the champions never broke out of contention, but held the lead until midday. When we talk about the future of bright-looking golf, it’s not just Morikawa and Wolff. The 25-year-old champion is a part of that conversation. Schauffele had one of its best outings of the week on Sunday, yet in a major top 10, always seems to be quietly just a few strokes away from success through a major champion.

T13. John Rahm, Patrick Reid, Daniel Berger, Si Woo Kim (-7): Rahm quietly worked at least one stroke every day to better reach the leaderboard, ultimately scoring a 66 in the final round. The 70s and early low points of the first round did not put him on the back burner, unlike Burger who got off to a hot start with a back-to-back 67 to get late treatment on the weekend.

T29. Brooks Copka, Tommy Fleetwood, Harold Warner III, Doctor Redman (-3): After spending the hikers leaving Saturday evening at a press conference about what the rest of the leaderboard’s major experience and success was not, Kopka kicked off his big talk with a final-round wet sandwich at TPC Harding Park. Things were closed from the start, and the 4-over 74 would go down as the moment the golf world went on to assume that Koepka is the dominant championship king. He has got a lot of challengers now, thinking that confidence alone will make it to the top-0, especially with younger stars like Morikawa and Wolfe being fearless as well.

T33. Rory Maclero and three others (-2): McIlroy called his game situation a step forward, a step back on Sunday afternoon, pointing to a birdie or better count (13), which could have been good enough to win whether it was an equally disappointing bogey or worse. Was not for counting. 14). He feels that things are close, but at the same time, it is not a heavy feeling that the former world No.1 is the biggest threat in a major championship.

T37. Tiger Woods, Justin Thomas, Webb Simpson and four others: Tiger’s hot out on Thursday turned out to be a little false for his title contest, but his Sunday round of 67 (his best score of the week) was a reminder that we are not close to panic mode about his game. The swing looks good and he has recovered through the week, so we should still consider him a factor of the playoffs and the two major competitions we have left on the calendar in 2020. Thomas, on the other hand, had arguably high expectations once he arrived and never seemed to be No. 1 in the world, but he was a millstone by the end and found enough ways to bail himself out to equalize.
