Professional golfer Collin Morikawa may only be 24 years old, but it’s clear he has a bright future on the PGA Tour.

The Los Angeles, California native has three PGA Tour wins under his belt to date, including one already in 2021.

While he’s at the height of his game right now, he’s had the support of his girlfriend Katherine Zhu throughout his entire professional career.

Collin Morikawa’s girlfriend Katherine Zhu has been by his side since the pair met in college.

While Morikawa was playing college golf at UC Berkeley, Zhu was an excellent golfer in her own right at Pepperdine University. She was a WGCA All-American scholar with a scoring average of 75.60 as senior.

These days, Zhu, who was born in Vancouver, British Columbia and attended the Zhuji Hailiang Private High School in China, can often be seen on or around the golf course with Morikawa. She has even helped out her star boyfriend as his caddie.

Morikawa admitted that Zhu loves to compete with him, claiming she beats him in “70 percent of our chipping competitions.”

The happy couple frequently post pics together on social media, and Kat has built a solid following on Instagram. Her account @katherinezhuu has amassed nearly 50,000 followers.

Collin Morikawa’s Golf Career

Collin Morikawa nabbed his first win on the PGA Tour in 2019 when he took home the top prize at the Barracuda Championship. He added two more wins to his resume in 2020, including his first major victory at the PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco.

The PGA Champ’s win wasn’t without an awkward moment, however. When the 23-year-old lifted the Wanamaker Trophy, the lid of the trophy fell off.

Morikawa was part of a seven-way tie heading into the final round at the 2020 PGA Championship, but out-dueled the likes of Dustin Johnson and Paul Casey to earn his major victory.

Morikawa got off to a strong start in 2021, earning a win at the Workday Championship in Florida in February.
