Hideki Matsuyama, a Srixon staff player, clinched victory at the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village on Sunday June 1. Golf Monthly takes a look at what's in his bag.
Srixon staff player Hideki Matsuyama has won his first PGA Tour title after beating Kevin Na at the first hole of a sudden death play-off in the Memorial Tournament, at Muirfield Village.
Golf Monthly takes a look at the equipment Matsuyama used to secure the victory.
The current world number 13 is a full Srixon staff player and was seen using a Srixon ZR-30 driver.
The champion also used the Srixon Z-545 iron and Srixon Z-945 iron.
Matsuyama also carried Cleveland Golf wedges, and the Srixon Z-STAR XV golf ball, featuring Spin Skin technology.
With this win Matsuyama has strengthened his credentials as one of golf’s leading rising stars.
The final round saw Matsuyama needing to find a birdie at the 18th hole to force a play-off. An imperious iron shot to 5 feet set up the chance for the Japanese golfer to force the play-off, and he duly obliged, setting a new record in the process, as the only player ever to birdie the final hole in each round of the Memorial Tournament.
After Na found water from the tee in the first play-off hole, Matsuyama was afforded the luxury of needing a par to win, and achieved this with a superb up and down from the left hand rough.
Following the victory, Matsuyama said: “I’m really, really happy. It’s a dream come true to win at Mr. Nicklaus’ course.”
