The first question Morikawa posed after his two-stroke victory came from Golden State Warriors goalie Steph Curry, three-time NBA champion and two-time league MVP.
After being punched for a while, Morikawa recovered.
“My younger brother is a huge Warriors fan. I think you heard it. I’m not, ”laughs Morikawa. “I’m an LA boy at heart.”
Curry has also offered to be a “replacement” caddy for Morikawa, as he is “free for the next three months”.
” Perfect. I look forward. I want to see your game, ”smiles Morikawa.
