Collin Morikawa's 'secret' to winning the British Open? A good old-fashioned cheat meal

July 21, 2021

Collin Morikawa amazed golf fans around the world by winning at Royal St. George's in his British Open debut. Turns out, the young star was fueled all week by a good old-fashioned cheat meal.

After claiming the claret jug, Morikawa was asked his "secret"? And Gary Player might want to cover his ears.

"The secret? Well, I never do this, but I had a burger for four straight days, so my body is probably feeling it," Morikawa said. "I know my body's feeling it."

Good for you, Collin. Hey, you only have a fast metabolism for so long. In fact, many swear that 25 is the cut-off age and with that big birthday coming up in February for the two-time major champ, well, he may as well stuff his face with the good stuff while he can.

We've seen other golfers lock into certain meals during major weeks, notably Bubba Watson's burritos during Masters week. Anyway, here's the full clip of his answer:

The SoCal native didn't elaborate where he got these magical burgers, but we know they weren't from In-N-Out. Regardless, they got the job done. And we're guessing he'll go back to this go-to meal when he defends his title next year. Collin, you've got 12 months to find a good burger place in St. Andrews.
