Today's set of par breakers featured a marvelous approach into the par-5 second where he penciled in a 3.

While not in contention to win the title or add a top 10 this week, he has to be pleased with his effort.

Hideki Matsuyama settled for a 4-over-par 40-36=76 in today's opening round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

Matsuyama is back in action following time off to rest his left wrist, which has bothered him on and off for over a year. He opened par-par before burying a birdie look from 17'5" at the par-5 12th. After another par at 13, the wheels went flying off. Matsuyama squared six consecutive bogeys and added one more at No. 3. Even birdies at 7 and 8 couldn't save what goes in the books as his highest score on the PGA TOUR since a second-round 79 at the 2014 RBC Heritage.

In a brief update at the Japanese-language edition of, it was reported that Hideki Matsuyama experienced discomfort in his left wrist at the Northern Trust Open (where he tied for fourth place).

It's an old injury that essentially flared up. In fact, he withdrew with the same with only one round in the books of last year's Honda Classic. So, rather than risk making it worse this time around, Matsuyama will rest and treat it until he's scheduled to play in next week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship. He's further motivated not to push the envelope with the Masters within two months from now. The time off won't be without a notable occasion, however. The PGA TOUR winner will celebrate his 23rd birthday on Wednesday of this week.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
