Hideki Matsuyama’s victory at the Sony Open in Hawaii came courtesy of a stunning eagle finish on the first playoff hole.

The Masters Champion was in scintillating form throughout the week, both driving for show and putting sublimely to secure the dough.

Following the win, Matsuyama said, “I am extremely happy and privileged to win the Sony Open which Japanese professional golf legend, Isao Aoki also won in the past. I think the key that made this win was ZX7 driver as it allowed me to control my shots perfectly, and obviously the XV ball performed great in the high winds in Hawaii.”

Renowned for his laser-like approach play, the 29-year-old currently uses Srixon’s Z-Forged blades, which helped him in carding 26 bridies across the four rounds, more than any other player in the field.
