2021–22 Fantasy Outlook
Morikawa staked his claim as an elite-level PGA Tour pro when he won his second career major at the Open Championship in July, a win that followed his first WGC title just months earlier. Only a few years into his PGA Tour career, Morikawa has made quite the impression on the PGA Tour. There's no doubt that he's the real deal and he's clearly a first-round pick in drafts, but his salary is a bit too high for salary cap leagues this season. Read Past Outlooks
Solo second on home turf
October 17, 2021
Morikawa fired an incredible 10-under 62 in the final round of the CJ Cup to finish solo second.
ANALYSIS
Morikawa was on many people's short list this week being a member at the unfamiliar Summit Club. He had nothing to lose on Sunday and came out firing going out in seven-under 62. He went a bit cold after that, making just one birdie from holes 10-17, but closed in style with an eagle at the 72nd hole to secure solo second. Morikawa struck the ball great once again, but this week was 11th in SG: Putting. When he putts well, Morikawa is going to be a factor in the final result. He will head to Japan for the Zozo Championship next week.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
The 23-year-old is an absolute star in the making. He was able to breakthrough on the big stage at the PGA Championship, putting together a closing stretch for the ages that will be remembered by his tee shot at the par-4 16th that set up an eagle. Morikawa's ball striking is already one of, if not the best on the PGA Tour right now. He lost strokes both around the greens and with the putter, showing that his potential is even higher in 2020-21.
Morikawa was one of a handful of golfers that turned pro in the middle of the season that had a lot of success. In fact, Morikawa was the most successful of that bunch as he not only picked-up his first win, but he also managed a runner-up and a T4 in just nine starts. His win did come at an opposite-field event, but his runner-up came at the 3M and there was plenty of fire power in that field. Morikawa has plenty of game and he'll continue to improve, but he might not be a great option in salary cap formats this season. It's one thing to have success during a short time span when there are no expectations. It's another when you are a full member and suddenly it's not just a handful of tournaments, it's a lifestyle.
