Collin Morikawa's Girlfriend: Katherine Zhu

Who is Collin Morikawa's girlfriend? Katherine Zhu, and she's a very good golfer in her own right. Morikawa, winner of the 2020 PGA Championship and 2021 British Open, and Zhu have been together since their college days.

Katherine Zhu was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, attended high school in China, and played her college golf at Pepperdine University in California. Truly an international golfer and person.

While at Pepperdine, Zhu played for the Waves in 39 tournament. She had three Top 10 finishes and seven Top 20 finishes, and was named a WGCA All-American Scholar multiple times. While Zhu was playing for Pepperdine, Morikawa was starring at Cal.

Morikawa gives Zhu, who goes by the nickname Kat, a lot of credit for keeping him grounded and helping him work through issues, both of the golf and life variety. She might also just be a good luck charm in his life. After winning the PGA Championship in 2020, Morikawa told the Golf Channel, "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."
