Monday morning, as the remains of Tropical Storm Henri continued to hinder the PGA Tour’s efforts to complete the Northern Trust at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, New Jersey, Collin Morikawa was 191 miles southwest, in Owing Mills, Maryland. Instead of slogging around the a soaked course, he was looking forward to a quality practice session.
The 24-year-old entered last week ranked No. 1 on the FedEx Cup point list, but he missed the cut at the Northern Trust after shooting 74-70, so he will begin the second event of the FedEx Cup playoffs, the BMW Championship, in a slightly-lower position. But if the former All-American at the University of California-Berkeley needed some cheering up this weekend, he could pour the milk over his favorite food, breakfast cereal, using the Claret Jug he won by capturing the 2021 British Open at Royal St. Georges last month. One percent milk, please.
Morikawa spoke with Golfweek before heading to Caves Valley Golf Club for his workout.
