At the Northern Trust Open back in 2017, Matsuyama surprised reporters when revealed that he had married to his wife Mei. The couple had just welcomed their first child, a daughter named Kanna.

“No one really asked me if I was married, so I didn’t have to answer that question,” Matsuyama said when asked about his private life. “But I felt that after the [2017] PGA would be a good time, because our baby is born and I thought that would be a good time to let everyone know.”
