With a one-shot victory at the 85th Masters, Hideki overcame a jittery start and a pressure-packed back-nine stutter to become the first Japanese player to win a men’s major.
Schauffele hit it in the water on 16 then compounded his error by hitting his third over the green and he needed three more to get down, running up a triple-bogey six which ended his Masters hopes for another year.

After nearly four hours on the course, the 34-year-old held the pressure on his 24-year-old opponent in an attritional match, with just two birdies to win his sixth PGA Tour title at the 17th hole.
“I got lucky that I had two guys that were like me, that didn’t have their A game today or even maybe their B game,” he said. “We didn’t hit very good golf shots this morning or even this afternoon and that allowed me to just be smart and not have to be aggressive and try and make birdies.”

Matt Jones enjoyed a back-nine procession of birdies to the Honda Classic title, as he cruised to a five-shot victory at PGA National in Florida.
Jones’ task was made easier by another blow-up from Aaron Wise, who pulled within a shot of the leader at the turn only to ruin most of his good work in a four-birdie outward half, when he ran up a triple-bogey seven at the 10th, taking four putts from inside 30 feet.

Genesis Invitational: On the second play-off hole, Max Homa beat Tony Finau to win the Genesis Invitational, organized by the Tiger Woods Foundation; Sam Burns takes seventh, while Dustin Johnson finishes eighth in the No. 1 world.
On the 72nd hole, Homa missed a three-foot birdie chance to win the tournament in regulation, with a bogey-free 66 leaving him locked at Riviera Country Club alongside Finau on 12 under.
Finau, who shot up the leaderboard with a round-of-the-day 64, at the first additional play-off hole, squandered a putt for the win and then bogeyed the second, ensuring that a par was sufficient for Homa to claim a first PGA Tour win since the 2019 Wells Fargo Championship.
