Masters Champion Matsuyama wins by 5 strokes in Japan

CHIBA, Japan  – Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama made three birdies on five holes in the final nine holes and hit 18 largely for a five-shot victory at the Zozo Championship on the PGA Tour.

It was Matsuyama’s first victory on the PGA Tour in his native Japan, although he has only had one attempt before. In 2019, Tiger Woods won the inaugural Zozo Championship, the first PGA Tour event in Japan.

However, the last year the tournament moved to California due to COVID-19 restrictions. Matsuyama finished with 65 and a 15-under total of 265 at Narashino Country Club. It was his seventh victory on the PGA Tour.
