When you are a kid and you play a sport, your main motive is the love of sport and the desire to become the best one day. However, most athletes "get lost" on that path, and when they achieve their goal, their only motive becomes money.

At least that is the opinion of most sports fans. Although this is the dominant opinion, Collin Morikawa, a famous golfer, still disagrees with it. Winning the Tour Championship would bring him 18 million euros. However, when he was asked during the press conference if he had thought about the prize he would receive by winning during the performance, he said; “I really haven't,” -Collin said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com. Considering that today's golf has a lot to offer; There are too many tournaments, sponsors, and money, many believe that everything revolves around money.

Morikawa has a different opinion. However, he does not bother with the words of others and his only focus is progress and victories. “It's weird this year, with all the designated events, next year signature events, it's always, everyone makes it about the money.

But I really don't care. I would play these tournaments because I want to play against the best guys in the world. I want to win. And whether you get a dollar out of it or 10 million dollars out of it, a win's a win”.

Collin Morikawa wants majors

Morikawa has the greatest desire to win trophies and most of all the Majors.

This is the best feeling for him and he has always strived for it. “The wins mean so much to me that I would trade 'em (the money) all in for just another win. I would trade the money for another win and more Majors. People don't understand how good it feels.

That's what you dream of. That's what you desire to do. That's what you want to do. That's why you practice - you just want the win”.
