Collin Morikawa has revealed he has "no interest" in watching the new two-part HBO docu-series about Tiger Woods because he already has a personal connection with his boyhood hero, and to him, that is all that matters.
Morikawa, speaking ahead of this week's Dubai Desert Classic on the European Tour, was quizzed by one journalist as whether or not he had intentions to watch the docu-series about the golfer he has idolised his entire career.
"No I've not seen it," replied Morikawa, who won his maiden major title in his just second ever major start at the US PGA Championship last August.
"You know, I've seen the comments. I've seen the highlights. You know, I wouldn't say there's an interest.
"I've grown up watching Tiger my entire life, and all I could dream about when I was a little kid was to be able to play with him when he's on the PGA Tour, and I've made that dream a reality and I've gotten to know him off the course.
"So for me, to have a personal connection aside from golf, and actually get to know him and talk to him, not just about golf but anything else, that's all that matters to me.
"We all know the history of what happened. Facts are facts. But for a Tiger documentary, unless he was going to be the one narrating it, I really have no interest."
He added: "The best way you can get to know someone is by talking to them. For me to be able to ask Tiger personal questions, face to face about golf, sports, family, whatever it may be, that's all that matters to me.
"I've idolised him and he's been a role model or a huge reason why I'm here today.
"So from what I've seen, comments and whatnot, there is no interest for me to watch it."
