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 Frys.com Open last week, so he is definitely off and running in 2014-15. Oct 19 - 5:58 PM

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 Frys.com 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 Frys.com 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 Frys.com 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.

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.

Hideki Matsuyama brushed off the disappointment of last week's missed cut and signed for a 3-under-par 34-34=68 following his opening round of The Barclays.

Indeed, a short week at Sedgefield was surprising, so it's a relief to know that he was back on point today. Matsuyama split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation at Ridgewood Country Club in what was his first career round in the FedExCup Playoffs. He offset a lone bogey at the par-3 eighth hole with four birdies, including runs from 14'5" at the par-4 fourth and 40'9" at the par-3 10th. Thanks in part to his breakthrough victory at the Memorial, the 22-year-old from Japan opens as the 22-seed.

Hideki Matsuyama lit up Firestone Country Club for a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, improving to 4-under 206 for the tournament.

Matsuyama began his day on the 10th hole with a 3'7" birdie and kept the momentum going for his entire round. While he did give back a pair of bogeys, one on each side, his five birdies and 2'1" eagle at the par-5 second hole easily outpaced his blemishes. Among his highlights were an 18'2" birdie at the par-3 15th and an 11'5" birdie at the par-4 eighth. While he is technically the clubhouse leader, he stands no chance of being so at day's end.

Hideki Matsuyama shot a 3-under-par 32-37=69 in his opening round of The Open Championship, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Matsuyama striped 11 (of 14) fairways, but found only 11 greens in regulation. The stumbles led to bogeys at the 12th and 13th holes, but he closed out the round birdie-par-birdie. He circled three birdies on his outward nine to lay the foundation for the big day.

Hideki Matsuyama shared a piece of sixth place in his Open Championship debut and returns this week to have a go at Royal Liverpool.

There was no winner's hangover for Matsuyama, as he followed up his playoff win at the Memorial with a T35 at the U.S. Open. This went in the books as his fifth top 35 at a major championship, in seven attempts. At 22 years of age, Matsuyama has already established himself as a big-game hunter. Gamers should feel confident trotting him out in any format.

Hideki Matsuyama fashioned a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of the U.S. Open.

Back in action since emerging in a playoff to win the Memorial 11 days ago, Matsuyama closed up shop today sitting just one stroke adrift of the twosome sharing the clubhouse lead. He opened with birdie at the par-5 10th, but played his next 12 holes in birdie-free 3-over with bogeys at 16, 1 and 2. He then picked off a birdie at the par-5 fifth to kick-start a fast close. Birdies at 6 and 8 trailed to secure the sub-70.

With a par on the first hole of sudden death, Hideki Matsuyama defeated Kevin Na to win the Memorial Tournament.

Matsuyama replaced his broken driver for the playoff, but he wielded a 3-wood off the tee at the par-4 18th hole. It made a difference as he wasn't able to clear the fairway bunker on the right side. Knowing Matsuyama's position, Na then pulled his drive into the creek left of the fairway. After negotiating a tree and finding safety well right of the green but in the rough, Matsuyama then failed to capitalize by short-siding his approach into the rough short of a greenside bunker. Eventually, with Na laying 4 on the green, Matsuyama converted his par putt from 10'1", the ball trickling all the way into the cup. This is his first victory on the PGA TOUR. He was already exempt into the season's second and third majors, but he's also now officially exempt into the PGA Championship. Needless to say, the sky is the limit for the 22-year-old from Japan.
