Green is Matsuyama’s colour…

It was a day of firsts at the 85th US Masters golf tournament yesterday. Hideki Matsuyama’s victory marked his first major win, and it was the first by a Japanese bloke. He did so in dramatic fashion, scoring 10 under par – just one shot ahead of American runner-up Will Zalatoris who was coming home strong. And while we’re on the theme of firsts, it was Zalatoris’ Masters debut at 24yo – and the first time he became a viral meme… Right there with him was Matsuyama’s caddie Shota Hayafuji who also became internet famous. And how collaborative is Matsuyama? “When I saw my caddie, Shota, and hugged him, I was happy for him because this is his first victory on the bag,” he said.
