Collin Morikawa idolized Tiger Woods
In the latest interview granted by Collin Morikawa for HBO, the American golfer talked abiut several topics, and especially his idol Tiger Woods.
He said: "You know, we all know the history of what happened. Facts are facts. But for a Tiger documentary, unless he was going to be the one narrating it, I really have no interest. To be honest, the best way you can get to know someone is by talking to them, right.
And for me to be able to ask Tiger personal questions, face-to-face, about golf, sports, family, whatever it may be, that's all that matters to me . I've idolized him and he's been a role model or a huge reason why I'm here today.
I've grown up watching Tiger my entire life, and all I could dream about when I was a little kid was to be able to play with him when he's on the PGA Tour, and I've made that dream a reality. When I watch him in his iron play, he's able to work the ball tremendously.
Every pin, every location on the green, he's able to work that shot and he's able to - he has full control of the golf ball and some of us might say we do. But he does it at ease, and every shot comes at ease and there's no extra effo rt to hit a certain-type shot. Hopefully I'm able to get my game there sometime."
