When you graduate from university with a degree in business administration, you’re on the way to earning good money.
But we’re guessing Collin Morikawa has made just a bit more than any of his 2019 classmates thanks to being one of the best golfers in the world.
In just under 2.5 years since turning pro, Morikawa has won two majors, five PGA Tour events, and the season-long Race to Dubai on the European Tour. Add up all the prize money, including bonuses, from that and you get a staggering total of more than $US23 million ($A31.8 million) for the 24-year-old.
But break it down by event, and his (very) early returns are even more amazing. Check out this graphic that shows how much Morikawa has made per tournament, per round, and per shot:
Nearly $400,000 every time he tees it up?! Pretty impressive. And, obviously, he’s just getting started.
“I’m going to set the bar as high as I can get and keep going,” Morikawa said after winning the DP World Tour Championship on Sunday. “I’m still not No. 1 in the world. I still have a lot to work on in my game.”
But in the meantime, he still has a lot of prize money to keep track of. Seems like that business administration degree is going to come in handy after all.
