Hideki Matsuyama signed for a 2-over-par 34-38=72 in the third round of the Sony Open to miss the 54-hole playing at even-par 210.
The cut fell at 3-under 207, and 15 players failed to pick up a Sunday tee time. Joining Matsuyama on the bench are William McGirt (208), Tom Hoge (208), Fabian Gomez (208), Mark Wilson (208), George McNeill (208), Lucas Glover (209), Kyle Suppa (209), Jim Herman (210), John Huh (210), Martin Flores (210), Jonathan Randolph (210), John Senden (211), Kevin Kisner (212) and Luke Guthrie (213). That leaves exactly 70 players to compete for the Sony Open title in the final round. Jan 17 - 10:25 PM

Hideki Matsuyama submitted a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-32=66 for his second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to reach the midpoint in 2-under 138 and survive the cut on the number.

Today was more like it, but that he was in jeopardy of having the weekend off was not. In fact, he closed birdie-birdie-par-birdie on Waialae's front side today to secure the paycheck. Matsuyama is one of 17 golfers at T69, so a second cut of low 70 professional and ties will occur at the conclusion of 54 holes. While a total of 85 golfers made the cut, amateur Kyle Suppa (2-under 138) doesn't influence either cut.

Hideki Matsuyama could only muster a bogey-free 3-under-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions to share third place at 20-under 272.

Matsuyama had a look from 6'10" on the par-5 18th hole that would have allowed him to join Jimmy Walker and Patrick Reed in a playoff, but the Japanese star was unable to convert. Matsuyama circled just three birdies, with a 27'6" slider on the par-4 seventh standing as the highlight. He lost 1.018 strokes with the flat stick on Sunday, and that stroke proved to be precious.

Hideki Matsuyama torched The Plantation Course at Kapalua for a 7-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions to take the lead at 17-under 202.

Following a messy bogey at the par-4 first hole, Matsuyama was flawless. He circled eight birdies and secured nine pars over his final 17 holes. His 15'11" birdie on the par-4 13th hole was the only one longer than 10 feet, and he also managed to birdie each of the four par 5s. He landed 16 GIR for the second consecutive round and has found 47 for the week. He led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green at the time of his posting. The Japanese star will try and capture the second PGA TOUR win of his career while attempting to become the first player to win in their inaugural trip to Kapalua since Daniel Chopra in 2008.

Hideki Matsuyama authored a 7-under-par 34-32=66 in his second round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions to establish the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 10-under 136.

He hit 16 greens in regulation, but failed to get up and down for par from a greenside bunker at the opening, par-4 first hole. With a bogey on the card, Matsuyama then found a groove and converted eight birdies against no bogeys or worse the rest of the way. His only notable roll traveled 12'11" at the par-4 seventh hole. Conditions were benign for the majority of the day, but this was an impressive effort nonetheless.

Hideki Matsuyama turns his attention to The Plantation Course at Kapalua Resort for this week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

Matsuyama has collected six worldwide victories since the start of 2013 but it was his win at the Memorial Tournament that sealed his entrance this week. The latest victory in his portfolio came just over a month ago at the Dunlop Phoenix. Matsuyama is one of the game's brightest stars and should always be on the radar anytime he tees it up.

Hideki Matsuyama conjured up a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-32=66 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and is staring at a top 10 finish at 13-under 271.

Matsuyama found three birdies and an eagle on his stroll around TPC Summerlin. His 23'1" birdie on the par-3 eight was his only par breaker outside of 10 feet. He tied for third in the Open last week, so he is definitely off and running in 2014-15.

Hideki Matsuyama posted a 5-under-par 35-31=66 in his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Fresh off a T3 at the Open, he figured to be a force again this week, but with the dynamic of a shootout at TPC Summerlin, it's often more difficult to separate from wannabes that get hot with their putters. Of course, that doesn't rule out Matsuyama from filling the cup. He buried six birdies, the longest from 34'5" at the par-4 fourth hole. He also poured in a par save from 10'11" at 13. The only blemish on his card was a 4 at the par-3 14th hole where he failed to get up and down from a greenside bunker.

Hideki Matsuyama departs Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course with a top-10 finish after a 2-under-par 37-33=70 in the final round.

Matsuyama was tied for third at the moment of his posting at 12-under 276 and was one off the clubhouse lead. The Japanese star squared a bogey to go with eight pars on the front nine. On the inward nine, he picked up three birdies including an 11'2" highlight on the par-4 17th. He ended his week with a birdie on the 72nd hole. With his status locked up through the end of the 2015-16 season, he is able to freewheel and chase high finishes with no risk.

Hideki Matsuyama turned in a 3-under-par 33-36=69 effort in the third round of the Open to reach the 54-hole mark at 10-under 206.

Matsuyama had a wild ride around Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course, circling six birdies and squaring three bogeys while settling for just nine pars. His 17'2" birdie at the opening hole was the longest of the day, but his 14'2" birdie at the par-4 14th was worthy of something more than a polite golf clap. He currently sits one stroke off the clubhouse lead and easily within striking distance of a win with a strong finale.

Hideki Matsuyama pured a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his second round of the Open.

Tacked onto his opening 70, he's 7-under 137 at the midpoint, just three strokes off the 36-hole lead. Matsuyama missed only two (of 14) fairways and three greens in regulation at Silverado today. Along the way, he rattled in five birdies, nothing more impressive than the run from 38-and-a-half feet at the par-3 11th. Five of his eight birdies have come on par 5s; he's birdied each of the four on the course at least once.

Hideki Matsuyama shot a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in his opening round of the Open.

Fresh off a successful first season on the PGA TOUR, the 22-year-old swallowed only one bogey at Silverado today. He offset with three birdies, the longest a walk-off from 11'3" at the par-5 ninth hole. He signed his card sitting just two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Hideki Matsuyama looks to cap off his Playoffs debut with fireworks at this week's TOUR Championship.

Matsuyama has collected 15 finishes inside the top 35, including his maiden win, during his first campaign as a PGA TOUR member. The consistency paid off, as he enters this week ranked 28th in the FedExCup standings. It would take a laundry list of items to occur for Matsuyama to collect the FedExCup trophy from that far back. With no pressure on him this week, look for the Japanese phenom to make his presence known on the leaderboard.

Hideki Matsuyama sits 4-under-par 69-67=136 through two rounds of the BMW Championship, four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The Japanese phenom arrived at Cherry Hills as the man on the bubble at 30th in the FedExCup standings, but a weekend resembling his first 36 holes will shore up his first visit to East Lake without doubt. He's hit only 23 greens in regulation, including just 11 today, but Matsuyama has limited the damage to three bogeys (one today) while holing seven birdies. Today's quartet featured rolls from 32 feet, 14 feet and 10'5" at Nos. 7, 13 and 17, respectively. He also recorded a zero-putt par save from six yards away just off the green at the par-4 third. His longest conventional save measured 10-and-a-half feet at the par-4 10th.

Hideki Matsuyama readies for his BMW Championship debut this week at Cherry Hills Country Club.

Matsuyama enters the week on the bubble, ranked 30th in the FedExCup standings. He's finished 30th or worse in six of seven starts since his maiden win back in June. Ranked 23rd in all-around ranking and 5th in par breakers, his week will likely rely on his flat stick as his strokes gained-putting rank is 151st on TOUR. Gamers should take a hard look at Matsuyama if they need an off the radar pick with winning upside.
