SAN FRANCISCO – At 23, Collin Morikawa is impressively adept at navigating press conferences, but Sunday’s media encounter following his victory at the PGA Championship took an odd turn.

After being star struck for a moment, Morikawa recovered.

“My caddie is a huge Warriors fan. I think you heard him. I’m not,” Morikawa laughed. “I’m an L.A. boy at heart.”

Curry also offered to be a “replacement” caddie for Morikawa, since he is “free for the next three months.”

“Perfect. I can’t wait. I want to see your game,” Morikawa smiled.
