HOW COLLIN MORIKAWA WON Collin Morikawa broke away from a crowded pack of contenders with two key shots on the back nine and claimed a major title at age 23. Seven players were tied for the lead at one point early on the back nine before Morikawa chipped in for a birdie on the 14th and drove the green on the par-4 16th. His tee shot settled seven feet from the hole to set up an eagle. Pars on the last two holes gave him a 31 on the back nine for a bogey-free 64 and a total of 13-under 267 for a two-stroke victory over Dustin Johnson and Paul Casey at San Francisco’s Harding Park. Johnson led through 54 holes before closing with a 68 on a day when there were 41 rounds in the 60s; Casey, tied for the lead on the 17th tee, shot 66. Morikawa started the final round two strokes back and moved into position with birdies on Nos. 3, 4 and 10 before his strong finish.  Morikawa ranked first in Strokes Gained: Putting at 2.019 per round.  Morikawa also led the field in Driving Accuracy Percentage, hitting 69.64 percent of the fairways.  Morikawa played the eight par-5 holes in 7-under for the week, ranking T1.  Morikawa matched the best score of the day on both Saturday (65) and Sunday (64).
