NASSAU, Bahamas. – Japanese star Hideki Matsuyama won the fourth in two months after beating British Open champion, Henrik Stenson to win the Hero World Golf Challenge by two strokes Sunday.
Matsuyama, 24, then warned his country is ready to become the first player to challenge the majors shortly after winning the 18 players who hosted the owner of 14 major titles, Tiger Woods.
“He will be a major player in the long run,” said Woods, who made his debut after a 16-month break due to back surgery.
Despite failing to record a perfect ending on the last day to do one over par 73, but 270 total punches collected from the first day is enough to allow Matsuyama won with 18-under par.
Sweden’s Stenson notes outstanding with a four-under par 68 on the final day of the second place by collecting 272 strokes, 16 under par.
“It is my goal and I worked hard to achieve this success,” says Matsuyama.
