PGA Tour Brunch - The Open Wrap-Up
American Collin Morikawa won his second major title (2021 Open Championship, 2020 PGA Championship) in his eighth major championship appearance and became the first player to win two different majors in his first attempt.
Morikawa scored his fifth PGA Tour title and moved to No. 1 (FedExCup) and No. 3 (Official World Golf Ranking).
The 2017 Open Champion Jordan Spieth finished as runner-up for his 11th Top-4 in a major. Spieth tied the lowest total score by a runner-up at The Open: (267) in 2016 by Phil Mickelson.
2010 Open Championship winner Louis Oosthuizen, who held the solo-lead after each of the first three rounds, recorded his third consecutive Top-3 in a major this season: (PGA Championship/T2, U.S. Open/2, The Open/T3).
2021 U.S. Open winner Jon Rahm finished T-3.
Three players recorded four rounds in the 60s: Collin Morikawa (1st), Jordan Spieth (2nd), Mackenzie Hughes (T6). Spieth and Hughes join list of seven players to record four rounds in the 60s and not win The Open with the most recent being Rickie Fowler at the 2014 Open Championship.
