Hiseki Mastuyama breaks history at Masters
Augusta, GA- On Sunday, Hiseki Mastuyama became the first Japanese golfer to win the Masters.
Going into Sunday, Mastuyama had a four- stroke lead over his opponents, but slowly the lead diminished. Will Zalatoris, Jordan Spieth, and Xander Schauffele put a lot of pressure on Mastuyama and had made it a game. However, Mastuyama did just enough to hang onto the lead and walk away in historical fashion.
Mastuyama had this to say about impacting golf after his win. "Not only those who are golfers already, but hopefully the youngsters who are playing golf or thinking about playing golf, I hope they will see this victory and think it's cool and try to follow in my footsteps," said Mastuyama.
"Up until now, we haven't had a major champion in Japan, and maybe a lot of golfers or younger golfers, too, thought, well, maybe that's an impossibility. But with me doing it, hopefully that will set an example for them that it is possible and that, if they set their mind to it, they can do it, too."
For another golfer has broken history during the Masters and it was a sight to see!
