Matsuyama wins, Leishman finishes T5

Apr 12, 2021

Hideki Matsuyama has won the US Masters, becoming the first Japanese player to win the prestigious event. It is expected to gain him rockstar status in his home coutnry and a golfing boom in Japan is sure to follow. The golf mad country has more courses than any other country outside the USA.
A stunning third round 65 set up the win for Hideki, who played supurb golf after players returned after a rain delay. The result was never really in doubt for much of the final round.

Australian's did well, with Marc Leishman earning a T5 finish and last year's runner up Cam Smith finished with another Top 10 result. Matt Jones and Adam Scott also made the cut for the weekend.
