Hideki Matsuyama took the lead at the Masters on Saturday with a clean 65 and really never looked back. Despite a bump on 15 when he put his 2nd shot in the water dropping his lead to 2 strokes over Xander Schauffele, he kept his even keel approach. Schauffele made a major move on the back 9 only to see his tee shot on the par 3 16th roll into the water and the have his 3rd shot from the drop area fly the green resulting in a triple bogie. That left rookie Will Zalatoris as the last challenger but Zalatoris left too many makeable putts and ended up 1 stroke off of Matsuyama -11 score.
Matsuyama became the first Japanese golfer to win a Men’s Major Championship.
