Reigning PGA Champion Collin Morikawa slept on a two-shot lead after a lackluster third round back nine, but showed up to play on Sunday. Morikawa executed a solid and consistent game plan that resulted in a 3-under par 69 and a three shot win at the WGC - Workday Championship at The Concession. The victory was Morikawa's 4th career PGA TOUR win and he joins Tiger Woods as the only player to win both a major and a WGC prior to turning 25 years old.

With the victory, Collin jumps four spots to 3rd in the Ryder Cup standings which is one of six coveted guaranteed spots on Team U.S.A. for this year's event at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin.

Ryder Cup heavyweight Brooks Koepka was also in the hunt this weekend at the notoriously difficult Concession Golf Club. Koepka, nursing a stiff neck, finished with a final round 70 (-2) and finished T2. The tie for second also aligned with his move in the Ryder Cup rankings as he moved up one spot into second place. Here's a look at the Top 12 following this week's WGC - Workday Championship at The Concession.
