Who Is Collin Morikawa’s Girlfriend?

Collin Morikawa is going out with Katherine Zhu at the moment and he has spoken in the past how important she has been to his life.

“I am very lucky to have her,” he said. “Kat has been by my side through it all. She would hate me if I didn’t say this, but I didn’t start winning in college until she showed up in my life, so thanks Kat.

“Whenever she’s there, it always just gets me away from golf. She knows how I’m feeling after golf, like you said, she’s played collegiately, she knows golf can take a toll on you, whether it’s a good or bad day.

“So she’s on that same swing of if we’re playing well or not well, but, yeah, I’m very lucky to have her. Having someone at dinner makes things a lot nicer than sitting down there at the hotel by myself.”

Interestingly, despite attending different universities, the pair met whilst Morikawa attended the University of California, Berkley, and Zhu went to Pepperdine University.

Zhu was born in Vancouver, British Columbia and her father, Mike Chu, was a champion tennis player.

Zhu herself was a very good tennis player at a young age before deciding to focus more on her golf game.

After attending Zhuji Hailiang Private High School in China, Zhu decided to return to North America to attend Pepperdine University.

She chose the school for three reasons;

“First, I really like Coach Gibbs. I believe all good players have good coaches and I believe Coach Gibbs can help me become a good player. Second, Malibu has great weather conditions, which create a better environment for me to practice. Third, Pepperdine is a small school that is strong in both academics and athletics.”

Zhu may not be making waves in the game of golf like her boyfriend Collin, but she is a very good golfer in her own right too.

She played on the collegiate team for four years and played as a division one player.
