Collin Morikawa's Girlfriend: Katherine Zhu

Collin Morikawa girlfriend is 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."

Hyunju Yoo (Hyeonjoo Ryu): Newest Glamour Girl of the KLPGA

First, let's clear up why we've listed two names for this golfer in the headline. When she first came on the scene, she (and everyone else) spelled her name "Hyeonjoo Ryu." But recently on social media, she started spelling it "Hyunju Yoo." And we figure she knows better than anyone how to translate the Korean spelling of her name into an English spelling.

LPGA Golfers Enjoy the Bahamas Beachside and Poolside

Social media gives us a glimpse into the lives of professional golfers the likes of which we could never have gotten a mere 10 years ago. One word tells you all you need to know: "selfie." And when LPGA players visit a tournament site such as, say the Bahamas, selfies sometimes involve bikinis and other swimsuits. The LPGA Tour plays this week at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic. They are staying at the Atlantis Resort, which has a bevy of pools and other water features for them to enjoy; and are also right on the beach. Make that "beaches," since the resort is surrounded by sand and ocean, too. Below are a few of the swimsuit selfies LPGA golfers have shared on their social media accounts this week. First, Danielle Kang: Here are two showing Hee Young Park (left) and her sister Ju Young Park. Ju Young is an LPGA rookie in 2015.
