Open Champion Collin Morikawa tributes his success to his caddie as well as to his family

Collin Morikawa's caddie is JJ Jakovac. On the Sunday of the final round of the 149th Open Championship, Jakovac turned 39 years old.  What a birthday gift :)    Shortly after having won The Open, Morikawa paid tribute to his family and to his caddie for this momentous success. 

Jakovac in turn, "likes to tell one and all that his boss, Collin Morikawa, is an old soul, a man wise beyond his 24 years who is mature and grounded as the day is long and immune to fearing any obstacle at hand".  - Steve DiMeglio
