I walked toward Jackson, smiling , and he smiled back at me. His eyes scanned my entire body. All of a sudden, I felt naked in my sweater and jeans. I actually sent the story to my fiance. Hold on, let me screenshot it for you .” (Black women always have receipts!) See the screenshot below

Two weeks ago at TPC Harding Park, Morikawa, 23, played the round of his life in just his second career major championship. His Sunday 64 was filled with more clutch than Porsche dealership. Before the wheels could come off, he made a par-saving 25-footer on the first hole. When things were tight, he pitched-in from 40 feet short of the green on the 14th. The masterpiece came at the 16th, a 294-yard par-4. Morikawa hit a high cut around a tree and hit the green, setting up an 8-foot eagle putt that slammed the door on Paul Casey, Dustin Johnson and Jason Day.

Don’t let the smile and easy-going demeanor fool you folks, this kid is cold-blooded.

Morikawa is at TPC Boston this week, the sight of the Northern Trust, ranked No. 2 on the FedEx Cup point list. He has won twice this season and is virtually assured of a spot in the Tour Championship.

If it feels like Morikawa’s ascension into the elite of professional golf has been fast, you’re right. The former University of California star made his professional debut at the 2019 RBC Canadian Open and not only made the cut, but he also tied for 14th. He’s only missed one cut in his career, at the 2020 Travelers Championship in June, a week before winning the Workday Charity Open.

Looking for a song you heard, but don ' t know the name? I only know this part of the song it goes ''I love you , I love you , I looove you ''. The male singer has like a deep voice and he kind of sings this line with force(?) and emotion but it is sung in a distinctive way apart from the rest of the song.

As reliable as he is inside the ropes, he appears to be every bit as solid between the ears.

“The focus I had for all 18 holes (Sunday), really, throughout the PGA Championship, that final round, was something that I’ve had before, but it was almost a little different,” he said Tuesday. “I was so focused on what I was doing, every single shot. (Now) it’s how do I learn and how do I get to that state again. Can I tell you the exact secret? No, because I’m still trying to figure out. What are keys that brought me there is what I talked about with my coach.”

If Morikawa can crack the secret of getting into the zone like he cracks iron shots, golfers on the PGA Tour are in trouble. He ranks second on Tour in strokes gained approach the green (1.044) and 23rd in greens in regulation (70.24 percent).

While he may be a marksman with mid-irons, Morikawa is not long off the tee, but that does not bother him.

“I don’t think distance has hurt me. It doesn’t help me as much as (someone like) Bryson and the guys that hit it out there top 10 in distance, but it hasn’t hurt me,” he said. “Obviously, I feel the strength of my game are my irons and approach shots, so if I can take advantage of that, yeah, I’d want to have an 8-iron instead of a 6-iron, but I still very, very comfortable with a 6-iron in my head.”

This is his first time to TPC Boston, and so far, he likes what he sees.

“I played the front nine yesterday and played the back nine today, and I love it. I think it’s a great course,” Morikawa said. “There are some holes, a lot of ballstriker-approach shot holes, with greens that have a lot of undulation, a lot of run-offs in certain areas and thick rough, thick fescue. So for me, I think it’s going to be great.”

Morikawa admitted that after winning the PGA Championship and fulfilling all his media obligations, he did not get a good night’s sleep until last Thursday. He gave the TaylorMade staff bag he used to his caddie because it has San Francisco Giants logos on it, and Morikawa is a Dodgers fan. He wrote ‘PGA Championship’ inside the two pairs of shoes he wore Sunday and put them in a special cabinet in his garage back in Las Vegas.

What Morikawa lacks in experience, he has made up for in talent and grit. The shots are there, and the mental approach is developing. If he can put the two together again over the next few weeks, he could have a FedEx Cup trophy to put beside his Wannamaker trophy.

NORTON, Mass. (AP) — Collin Morikawa put his own kind of stamp on winning his first major at the PGA Championship. He was unpacking from his week at Harding Park and was about to put away the two pairs of golf shoes he wore for the week. That’s when the 23-year-old Californian decided it was worthy of a memento. “I never really keep a ball or whatever for certain tournaments,” Morikawa said Tuesday. “But I wrote ’2020 PGA Championship’ on the side of my shoes and just want to have something to remember that. I was talking to my girlfriend and you know, this is my first major. And I’m always going to remember it.
