2022–23 Fantasy Outlook
Morikawa had a very strange 2021-22 season. He got off to a pretty incredible start with top-seven finishes in his first four events, but over his final 14 stroke play events he had just three top-20 finishes. Fortunately they happened to be the Masters, U.S. Open, and first playoff event. Still, that is a bit of a letdown after two straight seasons of winning multiple times including a major. Morikawa has never been a great putter, but has the ability to pop on certain weeks like the 2021 Open Championship. He ranked top-three in SG: Approach for the third straight season, but 152nd in SG: Around-the-Green is a clear area for improvement that could lead to more times in contention in 2022-23.

Struggles in final round again
August 28, 2022
Morikawa recorded a three-over 73 on Sunday at the Tour Championship to finish tied for 21st place.
ANALYSIS
Morikawa started the week at even-par and climbed his way up the leaderboard with three under-par rounds to start the week, but he tied for the worst round of the day Sunday. It's the second week in a row he struggled in the final round, which was in large part due to losing 4.8 strokes putting. It closes an inconsistent season for Morikawa in which he failed to win for the first time.

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.
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.
