The 2021 PGA Tour schedule hardly offers leisure time for the players, but they somehow find time to relax in between tournaments. Of course, these athletes need to engage in fun activities to kill some stress, and that’s exactly what Dustin Johnson and Collin Morikawa did recently.

Both Johnson and Morikawa are on top of their games at the moment, but that doesn’t mean they’d have to keep practicing 24/7. These two compatriots are sponsored by equipment company ‘TaylorMade’ and can often be seen doing promotional videos for them.

What’s amazing about TaylorMade is that they create quality content with the golfers. They have a star-studded list of professionals whom they’re sponsoring, and Dustin Johnson and Collin Morikawa are two of the top names. 

So one can expect the fans to go bonkers when the company releases a video of these two golfers challenging each other on the course. Here’s what went down in their recent video:

Johnson and Morikawa were given a par-4 400-yard hole and the best man had to win. But there was a catch: Both players couldn’t choose their clubs through a random method. 

After performing the given task, Johnson and Morikawa were assigned with a rescue club (hybrid) and a pitching wedge. The challenge was incredibly fun, and on top of it, both players had a great time challenging each other. 

Johnson and Morikawa could not be separated through the first challenge, and they had to play two more. Their competitive mentality was on display through the TaylorMade video, and fans would thoroughly enjoy if they give it a watch!

Morikawa is looking to emulate Johnson’s feat of winning the calendar year’s first two World Golf Championship events. The latter did it in 2017, and Morikawa can complete the achievement if he wins in Austin this week.
