Hideki Matsuyama is the greatest golfer the continent of Asia has produced to date, and his latest victory at the Genesis Invitational served as further testament to his prowess. He fired a final-round tournament record of 62 at Riviera Country Club, an old-style course that is one of the players’ favorite tracks on tour, to erase a six-shot deficit to Patrick Cantlay and win the event by three strokes.  

Matsuyama won five times in a span of a little over three years from 2014 to 2017, but was uncharacteristically out of the winner’s circle until his Masters victory in 2021. That win restarted the victory bandwagon for Matsuyama, as he has won three more PGA Tour events since then. It’s a sure bet that he won’t go another four years without winning, and it would come as no surprise if his prolific winning ways continue for the next several years.
