    WHILE BIG NAMES IN GOLF make headlines (Brooks Koepka, Bernhard Langer, Lexi Thompson), a new name is emerging in the final weeks of the PGA Tour season.

    Collin Morikawa, 22, graduated from University of California in May with a degree in business. Since then Morikawa has made golf his business, and business has been good.

    The top-ranked collegiate and amateur golfer turned professional and made his debut at the Canadian Open, where he tied for 14th. That put Morikawa at 1039 in the world golf rankings. From there, it's just gotten better and better.

    The Southern California native finished T-2 at the 3M Championship and T-4 at the John Deere Classic.

    This past weekend Morikawa won the Barracuda Championship in Reno, his sixth start on the tour.

    The young man is now ranked 90th in the world and has earned $1,672,904, as well as a two-year exemption on the PGA Tour that includes a spot in the Masters.

    As the AP said, it's been a "dream summer" for Morikawa.

    "I think I'm ready," Morikawa said. "This proves that I'm ready. To get this first win off my back means a lot. It's going to open just a lot more confidence and doors for me, obviously."
