SANDWICH, England (AP) — Collin Morikawa was making one of the most satisfying walks in golf, down the 18th fairway as a soon-to-be British Open champion, when he looked up at the huge grandstand surrounding the green.
For a long time, the hardest thing about being a Louis Oosthuizen fan was figuring out how to pronounce his last name.
