24-year-old Collin Morikawa won the WGC-Workday championship on Sunday and had a message for Tiger Woods.
Less than a week after Tiger got into a serious car accident in Los Angeles, an emotional Morikawa wanted to let Tiger know how much he meant to him during his career.
"I don't think we say thank you enough, so I want to say thank you to Tiger."

Tiger means everything to me,'”I hope he is alright and makes a quick recovery. Sometimes we don’t say thank you enough, and I wanted to say thank you to Tiger. Sometimes you lose people too early. Kobe, I lost my grandpa about a month ago, and you don’t get to say thank you enough. so thank you guys”
After Sunday’s WGC-Workday event Tiger took to Twitter to react to all the golfers who paid tribute to him this week.
It is hard to explain how touching today was when I turned on the tv and saw all the red shirts. To every golfer and every fan, you are truly helping me get through this tough time.
