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
Struggles with short game in Hilton Head
April 18, 2022
Morikawa closed with a three-under 68 on Sunday at the RBC Heritage to finish seven-under and tied for 26th.
ANALYSIS
Morikawa recorded four consecutive under-par rounds at Harbour Town, but he failed to finish inside the top 25 due to short-game struggles. The 25-year-old lost 2.7 strokes around the greens and another 2.8 strokes with the flat stick in Hilton Head. On the bright side, Morikawa also ranked fourth in SG: Approach and T5 in GIR percentage. He'll now pair with Viktor Hovland at the upcoming Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

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.
