SAN FRANCISCO – At 23, Collin Morikawa is impressively adept at navigating press conferences, but Sunday’s media encounter following his victory at the PGA Championship took an odd turn.
After being star struck for a moment, Morikawa recovered.
“My caddie is a huge Warriors fan. I think you heard him. I'm not,” Morikawa laughed. “I'm an L.A. boy at heart.”
Curry also offered to be a “replacement” caddie for Morikawa, since he is “free for the next three months.”
“Perfect. I can't wait. I want to see your game,” Morikawa smiled.
Curry is an avid golfer, who has played two Korn Ferry Tour events.
According to a report in the San Francisco Chronicle last month, he’s also poised to become the host of a PGA Tour event starting in September 2021.
That event is scheduled to be played at TPC Harding Park, site of this week’s PGA Championship.
