The 24-year-old America Golfer, Collin Morikawa has lifted one of the reputed titles in the golfing world. He has marked his formidable victory by becoming the star of the ‘Workday Championship 2021’ at the sprawling green course of ‘The Concession Golf Club’.
He has categorically reflected his respect for the golfing sensation Tiger Woods by honoring him on his big win at WGC. He believes that the best way to honor a golfer is to play like him. Thus, he honored Tiger in his own way by performing the way Tiger does. Furthermore, other golfers had also shown respect and gratitude towards Woods by wearing his’ traditional Sunday attire that typically is a combination of the dark red golf tee and black trousers.
“Tiger means everything to me,” Morikawa said. “And yes, he had the crash and thankfully he’s all right and hopefully he has a quick and great recovery, but I don’t think we say thank you enough. So I want to say thank you to Tiger because sometimes you lose people too early. I lost my grandpa about a month ago. And you don’t get to say thank you enough.” (Source: Golfweek)

I haven’t had it for a while, but this is what we love to do, we love to win.” he quoted. (Source: Golfweek)
