However, after winning the Sony Open, he suffered from back and neck injuries and had a difficult time.

Last year, there were only two top 10 finishes.The world ranking also fell to 55th.

It was a double electrode that no one expected.

Matsuyama entered the final round in a tie for 7th place, 6 strokes behind leader Patrick Cantlay (USA).

Matsuyama, who tied for the lead with a birdie on the 15th hole (par 4), took the lead with a birdie on the 16th hole (par 3), and solidified his victory with a birdie on the 17th hole (par 5).

In particular, the shots on the 15th and 16th holes were accurate enough to produce tap-in birdies both times.In the 15th hole, the tee shot was 20cm from the hole with 189 yards remaining, and in the 16th hole, the tee shot ball stopped 15cm next to the hole.

Matsuyama’s 9-under par score of 62 on this day was just one stroke short of the course record.

Matsuyama said, “When I started the game, I never thought I would win. My shots weren’t comfortable either. But I encouraged myself by saying, ‘Hey, it’s okay if I make a few mistakes,’ and it worked. My short game and putts were better than my shots. Still, the second shot on hole 15 was the best shot of my life,” he said.

Tiger Woods (USA), the host of the event, did not appear at the awards ceremony that day.

Woods, who was sick with the flu, withdrew during the second round and is taking care of his health.

The winning trophy was handed over by Chung Eui-sun, Chairman of Hyundai Motor Company.

Matsuyama said, “This is a tournament I really wanted to win,” and added, “I’m disappointed that I won and couldn’t take a picture with Woods.”

List, who reduced 3 strokes, and Jaratoris, who hit 2 under par 69 strokes, were tied for 2nd place (14 under par 270 strokes), 3 strokes behind.

Byeong-Hoon An, who shot 3 under par 68 in the final round, ranked highest, tied for 16th place (7 under par, 277 strokes).

Kim Joo-hyung tied for 24th place (5 under par, 279 strokes), and Kim Si-woo and Lim Seong-jae tied for 44th place (even par, 284 strokes).

World No. 1 Scotty Scheffler (USA) saved face with a tie for 10th place (8 under par, 276 strokes), but world No. 2 Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) fell short of expectations with a tie for 24th place (5 under par, 279 strokes). I couldn’t do it. 슬롯게이밍
