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. Mar 5 - 4:40 PM

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 has four top-four finishes in his last six official starts, including a back-door T4 at Riviera on Sunday.

Matsuyama began his day at TPC Scottsdale with a bang, holing out from 129 yards for an eagle on the par-4 first hole. He would add a birdie on the par-5 third hole and a 13-foot birdie on the par-4 fifth hole to go with six pars on the front. He took the lead by himself with a birdie on the par-5 13th, but handed that stroke back with a three-putt bogey on the par-4 14th. He had a chance to tie Brooks Koepka with a birdie putt on the final hole, but never scared the edge from 18'1". With this performance, he moves from 15th to 10th in the FedExCup standings.

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).

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.
Jan 10 - 5:30 PM

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.
