Hideki Matsuyama posted a final-round 74 on Sunday at Augusta National Golf Club to claim his maiden major title at the 2021 Masters Tournament.
The 29-year old Matsuyama signed for a final-day card comprised of nine pars, five bogeys, and four birdies en route to a 10-under par total, one clear of Will Zalatoris (70), and three clear of Xander Schauffele (72), and Jordan Spieth (70).
The win earned Matsuyama 2,070,000 and 600 FedExCup points, which moves him to No. 4 on the PGA Tour’s points list, and No. 3 in money.
More importantly, Matsuyama scored 100 Official World Golf Rankings points which bumps him up from No. 25 to No. 14.
Runner-up Zalatoris took home a check for $1,242,000 and 60 OWGR points – which amounts to about the same money of a regular PGA Tour win, and the points of a higher-end tournament.
