At just 23-years of age, American Collin Morikawa has claimed his first major trophy after storming home to victory at Harding Park.

Collin Morikawa has stamped himself as one of the biggest rising stars in golf with a thrilling two-stroke victory over Paul Casey and Dustin Johnson.

With just five holes to play, Morikawa was locked in an incredible six-way tie for the lead at 10-under par along with five golfers within one shot, including Jason Day, Paul Casey, Tony Finau, Cameron Champ and Dustin Johnson.

Paul Casey and Dustin Johnson would end up finishing two strokes back at 11-under par.

Jason Day closed with a 4-under 66 finishing in a tie for fourth place at 10-under par alongside Matthew Wolff, Bryson DeChambeau, Tony Finau and Scottie Scheffler.
