Hideki Matsuyama

Matsuyama began playing golf with his father as his instructor. He has studied, since 2010, at Tohoku Fukushi University in Sendai. The school was nearly destroyed in a 2011 earthquake, but Matsuyama wanted to finish his education and heeded the advice of his coach, who said a university career would make him a better player. He won the 2010 Asian Amateur Championship with a score of 68-69-65-67?269. The victory gave him the chance to compete as an amateur at the 2011 Masters, becoming the first Japanese amateur to do so. At the Masters, Matsuyama was the low amateur and won the Silver Cup. He was the only amateur to make the cut.
A week after his victory at the Asian Amateur, he finished T-3rd at the Japan Open Golf Championship. Played on the Presidents Cup Team in 2013 and ?15.

In November, he won the Mitsui Sumitomo VISA Taiheiyo Masters on the Japan Golf Tour while still an amateur.
2012 Notes: At the Masters, Matsuyama again made the cut, becoming the first amateur to make consecutive cuts since Manny Zerman did it in 1991 and ?92.
