‘3 consecutive bogey ends come-from-behind’ Morikawa “Bad shot came out at bad timing”

Colin Morikawa (USA), who missed the first championship of the PGA Tour New Year right in front of his eyes, expressed his mixed feelings, saying, “I am sad and not in a good mood.”

Morikawa hit 1 under par 72 with 4 birdies and 3 bogeys in the final 4th round of the tournament held on the 9th (Korean time) at the Kapalua Plantation Course (par 73, 7,596 yards) in Kapalua, Maui Island, Hawaii, USA.

Morikawa, who was leading by 6 strokes until the 3rd round, allowed a reversal to Yon Ram (Spain, 27 under par 265 strokes) with a final total of 25 under par 267 strokes.

In an interview with the local media, Morikawa said, “I worked really hard and got a chance, but there were a lot of bad shots at bad timing.”

In particular, it was painful to see three consecutive bogies on holes 14 (par 4), 15 (par 5), and 16 (par 4) in the second half of the 4th round.

Morikawa said that he lost his composure when he missed par on the 14th hole, and blamed himself, saying, “I practiced a lot on the chip shot (which I tried on the 15th hole), but I don’t think it was enough.”

He also suffered a come-from-behind nightmare at the Hero World Challenge in December 2021, saying, “It’s different from the Hero Challenge. At that time, the start wasn’t good and (the flow) was bad.” And that at really bad timing.” 메이저놀이터

At that time, Morikawa was the leader, 5 strokes ahead of 2nd place until the 3rd round, but in the 4th round, on holes 4 (par 4) and holes 6 (par 5), he wrote double bogeys in succession and was pushed back to a tie for 5th place.

Morikawa said, “The shock is great, but it’s still early in the season, so we have to overcome it quickly.”

On the other hand, Ram, who was tied for 5th place, 7 strokes behind Morikawa until the 3rd round, drove 10 under par that day and became the main character of the double electrode.

“I wanted to beat Morikawa as a competitor,” said Ram.

Ram picked the 15th hole (par 5) tee shot as the main play and recalled, “I couldn’t have dropped the ball in a better spot.”

The tee shot flew 335 yards and fell on the fairway, and Ram put the second shot about 3.5m next to the hole cup and put an eagle putt.

With this eagle, he was able to pursue Morikawa by one stroke, and unfortunately, Morikawa immediately poured out three consecutive bogeys in holes 14 to 16 and allowed a turnaround.
