Collin Morikawa is making his third trip to Quail Hollow this week.

His course debut came in 2022 where he contributed to the Americans’ 17.5-12.5 victory at the Presidents Cup. Morikawa did his part by going 2-1-0 and winning 3&2 over Mito Pereira.

Morikawa returned last year for the Wells Fargo Championship where he missed the cut posting 73-73. He respectably had no double bogeys or worse around a major championship-caliber venue. There just weren’t enough circles on the card.

While Morikawa is not a horse for the course pick this week, he’s worthy of consideration given his recent form and pedigree.

The former Cal Golden Bear last teed it up with Kurt Kitayama at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans where the duo took T-23rd.

Kitayama has struggled for most of this year, so Morikawa getting back to playing solo should help. So will a week of rest that Morikawa got.

He played well in back-to-back weeks by taking T-3rd at the Masters where he contended and solo ninth at the RBC Heritage.

It will be interesting to track Morikawa’s results given his recent coaching changes. Last winter, he split with childhood coach, Rick Sessinghaus. Per Golf Digest’s Dan Rapaport, the two recently reunited.

Morikawa is looking to get his approach play dialed again. He led the PGA Tour in a bevy of categories early in his career but has since dropped to nearly 100th currently in Strokes Gained: Approach (-.021).

The 27-year-old is still precise with driver, ranking fourth in fairway percentage (78.53%).
