Collin Morikawa shot a final-round 66 on Sunday at Royal St George’s Golf Club to claim his second major title at the 149th Open Championship.
The 24-year old American star signed for a final-day card comprised of 14 pars and four birdies en route to a 15-under par total, two ahead of 2017 Open winner Jordan Spieth, who also closed with a 66.
The win earned Morikawa $2,070,000 and 600 FedExCup points, which moves him to No. 3 in the FedExCup standings, and No. 1 on the PGA Tour’s money list.
The Cal-Berkeley product also scored 100 Official World Golf Rankings points which will move him to No. 3, swapping OWGR positions with Justin Thomas (69), who finished T40.
Runner-up Spieth, meanwhile, took home a check for $1,198,000 along with 330 FedExCup points, and 60 OWGR points, which is essentially like winning a regular tour event (for instance – more money and points than the winner of the Barbasol Championship will earn today). Spieth will move from 23rd to 14th – his best position since late in 2018.
