Xander Schauffele, Collin Morikawa, and Rickie Fowler are just some of the stars performing at the Zozo Championship. All three have huge motivation after a disappointing performance at the Ryder Cup. In an interview with the media, Collin Morikawa emphasized that he does not want to look back on the result from Rome.
His goal is to focus on new challenges and forget everything that happened. "Nothing's carried over," Morikawa said, as quoted by ESPN.com! "I mean, look, the Ryder Cup was what it was and -- that's the final result. There's no lingering anger from losing at a Ryder Cup coming into a week like this.
They're two different things, one's a team event and this is normal individual golf." Fowler believes that the memories of the Ryder Cup cannot be erased. Although it was a disappointing performance for him and his team, there were some positives.
Playing in such a competition is a dream that every golfer wants to achieve. Fowler succeeded in that. "I don't think you ever really erase it. Like I mentioned, they're still amazing weeks, just not fun being on the wrong side of it.
We like to put the losing memories behind us. But the memories we have with teammates and captains and the overall week, it's something it's still fun to look back on."
Xander Schauffele and his father statements
Schauffele's father had strange statements regarding the US Ryder Cup players and the way they were 'paid'
Xander believes that the media played a major role. "I wasn't super fired up that he was speaking to media, just because I know how things get twisted. He specifically said that if the tournament's for-profit, then players should get paid.
He also said that if it's charitable -- it should be a charitable event most likely and that everything should get donated."
