A lot has changed for Collin Morikawa and his fiancé Katherine Zhu in the past five years.
Ahead of Thursday’s Masters 2022, Zhu – who has been dating Morikawa since 2017 – posted a sweet souvenir photo of the couple from the US amateur event as the 25-year-old golfer prepares to compete for his first-ever green jacket.
“5 years later…from US amateur to Masters,” Zhu captioned the post on her Instagram Story, where she also shared a photo of the pair from Wednesday’s par 3 event.
Morikawa has five career wins to his name, including two majors with triumphs at the 2020 PGA Championship and the 2021 British Open. He is scheduled to tee off in Augusta on Thursday afternoon.
It’s been an eventful few days for Morikawa, who celebrated his fifth anniversary with Zhu, a former college golf star, at the end of March.
“Happy 5 years together @collin_morikawa,” Zhu posted on Instagram at the time, “can’t believe how much we’ve been through together, from talking long distance in 2 years to moving in together in the last 3 years, getting a dog together and now we are.” ENGAGED! I can’t wait to spend a lifetime with you!”
Morikawa popped the question in November and shared the exciting news on social media.
“My eternity I love you @katherinezhuu ❤️ 11/30/2021,” he gushed.
Though it remains to be seen when Morikawa and Zhu will tie the knot, he was asked about the upcoming nuptials this week after a reporter abruptly shifted the questioning to the golfer’s private life.
“My friend said, ‘Boys want to get married, their game is starting to rust. Ladies, when they marry, they win majors. Are you worried about this? Or was it a bad question, or would you rather not answer?” the reporter said, to which Morikawa laughed and replied, “No, I’m not worried.”
