Missed putt leaves Collin Morikawa a runner-up at Colonial yet again
FORT WORTH, Texas - Collin Morikawa sighed with the sting of defeat on his face.
"It's been three years in a row since I finished second," he said.
Although this was the first time that Morikawa competed in the Charles Schwab Challenge, his second place at Daniel Berger is his third second place at Colonial - technically.

During his time at the University of California-Berkeley, Morikawa was a 2018 and 19 finalist for the Ben Hogan Award. The award is given by the Golf Coaches Association of America to the best college golfers in the country. He lost to Viktor Hovland last year and finished 18 behind Doug Ghim.
Though he closed with a final round 67 to force a playoff on Sunday, Morikawa missed a 3-foot par in the first playoff hole he lost to Berger.
What a way to end the tournament.

When asked to compare his three near misses at Colonial, it wasn't even a competition.
"I would say that is the most difficult. I had it fully under control. It's going to be a bit bittersweet, ”said Morikawa. “I know that I have to look back on it again next week and see all the positive results, but I also don't have to find out what I did wrong this week. It will be something I just have to find out. But this bites a little harder. "
