The reigning PGA Championship winner has enjoyed a meteoric rise of late and heads into this week's event at TPC Summerlin occupying fifth spot in the latest world rankings, a place above U.S. Open champion Bryson DeChambeau. 
 
In total, 18 of the top 40 golfers in the world will be in Las Vegas this week to create the strongest Shriners Hospitals Open field in 32 years.

"I’m just trying to win at the end of the day. That mindset of trying to win every week is there. If I finish second or miss the cut, we didn’t get the job done," said Morikawa in the build up to this week's PGA Tour event. 

“It’s just how much can I learn. I learn a lot from missed cuts, so having a couple missed cuts is going to put me on my toes to really figure out what I need to be a little more consistent on and kind of give myself a chance to win coming down nine holes on Sunday.”
