Collin Morikawa net worth: How much is the future world number one worth?

Collin Morikawa looks like he will be the world number one sooner rather than later.

The 24-year-old American has had a stellar season and is aiming to cap it all of with a win at Tiger Woods' Hero World Challenge. 

That would see him become the world number one for the first time in his career and he's not even played 100 professional events.

Morikawa had already established himself as one of the world's brightest young stars when he won the 2020 PGA Championship. 

Then he followed that up by becoming the champion golfer of the year, lifting the Claret Jug at Royal St George's Golf Club, in Kent.

Since then, he won the DP World Tour Championship and in the process became the Race to Dubai winner. 

He was the first American to win that, though critics suggest the winner should play more events than Morikawa did. 

It followed a victory earlier in the season at the WGC Workday Championship. 

Hall of fame career? Definitely. And he's not even 25 years old. 

Morikawa has now played more than 60 events as a professional and has won six times, finishing second four times.

Those two major wins, on top of his other wins, have seen him take in more than $18.5 million in earnings. 

Oh, and he's only missed five cuts in his career. He was an amateur not too many months ago. Incredible. 

His Ryder Cup debut at Whistling Straits saw him finish with a 3-0-1 record. 

Morikawa also announced the engagement to his long time girlfriend Katherine Zhu.

She plays golf too and her impact position looks nearly identical to that of her husband-to-be. 

But how much is he worth?

It's impossible to know just how much his endorsement deals are netting him. 

He has multi-year deals with Adidas and an equipment TaylorMade, though.

Morikawa also has an endorsement deal with US Bank, too. 

That being said: Essentially Sports estimates he has a net worth of around $7-9 million

Not bad for someone who has not yet reached the age of 30 and his golfing prime.
