Hideki Matsuyama celebrates after winning at Augusta National



Augusta, Ga - Hideki Matsuyama won the Green Jacket at Augusta

National on Sunday and with it came the collective roar of a nation -

he became the first player from Japan to claim a men's major championship.

Matsuyama's final-round 73 was good for a 10 under-par total, one

stroke clear of the red-hot rookie Will Zalatoris.


Matsuyama overcame some late hiccups, mainly an air mailed approach

at the par-5 fifteenth (that reached the pond behind the green), but just

as things became interesting with Schauffele reeling off four straight

birdies, the 27 year-old Californian was derailed when his tee shot on

the par-3 sixteenth found the water left. He made triple-bogey 6, ending

his hopes (finishing at 7-under par). Matsuyama had steadied himself,

taking a two shot margin to the 18th tee, where after finding the fairway

he made bogey from the right green-side bunker to secure his first major

victory and secure his place in Masters history.


"I felt nervous from the start of the day and right through until the end,"

Matsuyama said. "I was thinking about (my family) all the way around.

I'm really happy I was able to play well for them." Matsuyama landed

in the bunker on the 18th, but blasted his way onto the green to give

himself two putts to win the title in his 10th appearance at the tournament.


"Until last week, I hadn't even been in the top 10 (on the tour) or

contended for a title this year. I had no expectations, but in Wednesday's

practice, my shots started to feel good again, and I began to think I might

have a chance," Matsuyama said.

Spieth Makes It All The Way Back, Wins Valero Texas Open PDF Print E-mail

 

Jordan Spieth celebrates his first win since the '17 Open Championship

 

 

San Antonio, Texas - Jordan Spieth once again found his way to the

winners circle - ending his 1,351-day victory drought by winning the

Valero Texas Open by two shots over Charley Hoffman.


The 27-year-old Texan last claimed victory nearly four years ago at

the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale on July 23, 2017. Spieth fired

a final-round six-under par 66 at TPC San Antonio to finish on 18-under

(270 total).


Charley Hoffman kept the finish interesting matching Spieth's 66 on

Sunday. He began the tournament with an opening round 75 (11 shots

back), but Hoffman was red-hot over the holiday weekend posting

rounds of 66-65-66 in his attempt to win for the first time in 5 years

(and needing a win to get into the Masters). Spieth had opened up

a two-shot lead by the turn thanks to four birdies on the outward nine,

but Hoffman hung tough, he kept the preesure on with a 19-foot birdie

putt at the par-3 16th to close within one. Spieth answered back with

wedge to five feet and the holed putt on the short par 4 17th. Holding

a two-shot lead on the last, Spieth made his par to secure the two-shot

win over Hoffman - ending the winless period and rolling into Magnolia

Lane with confidence.


Matt Wallace finished solo third, four shots back after a final round 70.

Billy Horschel Wins WGC Dell Match Play PDF Print E-mail

 

Billy Horschel celebrates after winning the WGC Dell Match Play in Austin



Austin, Texas - Billy Horschel defeated former Texas Longhorn Scottie

Scheffler for his first World Golf Championship at the Dell Technologies

Match Play at Austin Country Club.


Unspectacular play was on display for the final match, likely a result of

the five day grind of head-to-head battles. Scheffler won the second

hole to take an early lead, but Horschel chipped in on the fifth to grab

the momentum and proved to be the steadier of the two, constantly

applying pressure to the 24 year-old Texan, making clutch putt after

clutch putt. Billy Ho never trailed again. The final ended on the 17th,

a 2&1 victory for the former Florida Gator.


Horschel defeated Victor Perez in the semifinals and Scheffler defeated

Matt Kuchar earlier in the day to reach the finals.


The win was the sixth career PGA Tour victory for Horschel and his first

World Golf Championship.

Matt Jones Routs the Field at Honda PDF Print E-mail

 

Matt Jones hoists the crystal at PGA National after winning the Honda Classic

 

 

 

(AP Report) Palm Beach Gardens, Fl. - When Matt Jones won his first

PGA Tour title seven years ago, he needed a 45-foot birdie putt just to get

into a playoff and then a 40-yard chip-in to take the victory.


This win was far less dramatic, yet just as meaningful. It got him back to

the Masters. Jones won the Honda Classic by five shots Sunday, a final

round of 2-under 68 good enough to finish the week at 12-under 268 at

PGA National. The margin matched the largest in tournament history,

tying the mark set by Jack Nicklaus in 1977 and matched by Camilo

Villegas in 2010.


The 40-year-old Australian earned $1.26 million and, this time, he’ll

have more than a day to prepare for the trip to Augusta National. His

win at the Houston Open in 2014 — and his Masters invite — came just

one day before he had to go to Augusta, making it a scramble to get

family and friends together to share in the experience. The Masters

starts April 8, so he’s got much more time to plan this one. Jones

started the week with a course-record-tying round of 9-under 61.

He was three shots behind Aaron Wise after 36 holes after a second

-round 70, and his round of 69 on Saturday was good enough to put

him up by three entering Sunday. Wise’s chances ended at the par-4

10th. He hit his second into a bunker, then four-putted from 25 feet for

triple-bogey. Jones’ lead went to four, and he avoided trouble the rest

of the way, while Wise finished with a 73 and tied for 13th at 4 under.



Brandon Hagy (66) finished 7 under and alone in second on his 30th

birthday, his chance at winning doomed by a third-round 76. Chase

Seiffert (64), Brendan Steele (65), C.T. Pan (70), Denny McCarthy

(67) and Russell Henley (68) tied for third at 6 under.
