The ultimate Renaissance athlete 

Katherine Zhu isn’t just a pro golfer but a tennis player, swimmer, taekwondo enthusiast, and figure skater! (phew!) But golf stole her heart early on, and she’s been dedicated to becoming a college golfer and cementing her career in the sport. 

She’s already played in impressive tournaments like the SCPGA Jack Kramer Memorial, World Ladies Championship, and Jack Nicklaus Junior Championship.

At just 13 years old, she won her first amateur tournament. According to Popular Net Worth, her net worth is around $800,000, but shhh…we don’t have any insider info on her investments or income.

Golf profoundly changed her life

Katherine Zhu spilled the tea (or should we say clubs?) on how much golf has impacted her life in an Instagram post from 2019. She revealed how the game taught her to be strong when things don’t go her way and always to respect those around her. 

But most importantly, golf has opened doors to unforgettable experiences and memories that she’ll always hold dear.

Swinging for the stars and going Pro

Is Katherine Zhu ready for the big leagues? The truth is, she’s still an amateur golfer and has yet to quite spill the beans on her future plans. Even though her college scoring average is impressive, the LPGA is a whole other ballgame. 

It remains to be seen whether she’ll take her game to the next level or continue to support her partner, Collin, as he makes waves in the golf world. With Zhu’s impressive smarts and academic achievements, it’s safe to say that she’ll succeed in whatever path she chooses.

She’s into baking and dog fostering

With over 70,000 followers and counting, she’s quickly becoming a social media sensation. And we can’t blame her fans for being obsessed. But don’t let her looks fool you. When she’s not hitting golf balls or posing for the camera, Zhu is all about spreading love and compassion.

Whether she’s baking delicious treats or looking after furry friends as a short-term foster owner, she’s always giving back to the community and making the world a better place.

A Match Made on the Green: The Romance of Katherine Zhu and Collin Morikawa 

From college clicks to wedding kiss

According to Collin, they met in college and just clicked. Their relationship started back in 2017, and they tied the knot on the 26th of November 2022. 

But it’s not all sunshine and roses on the course. Zhu admits their relationship is “very competitive,” Colin confirms that they never let each other win. 

It looks like these lovebirds take the “love thy neighbor” commandment to a whole new level when they’re both vying for the win! 

And just when you thought it couldn’t get any cuter, they exchanged vows last year in a ceremony that included their adorable dog, Koa. Katherine Zhu, now became Katherine Morikawa, posted a beautiful picture of their kiss and wrote, “11.26.22. A day we will remember forever.”

Kat is his lucky charm

Move over Tiger and Elin; there’s a new power couple in town. According to Collin, Kat has been his lucky charm since they met in college. He even joked that he didn’t start winning until she showed up in his life.

But it’s not just luck that makes them a great team. Kat understands the toll that golf can take on a player, both mentally and physically. She’s been there, done that, and knows how to support Collin through thick and thin.

And let’s not forget the perks of having someone to share a meal with after a long day on the green. Collin admits that having Kat by his side makes dinner a lot nicer than sitting alone in a hotel room. We stan a supportive and loving partner.
