Masters in the US: Wiesberger returns to 40th

Masters of the United States

Hideki Matsuyama made golf history by winning the US Masters. The 29-year-old became the first Japanese to win a major tournament on Sunday. Matsuyama won after 73 final rounds at Augusta National Golf Club with a total of 278 strokes, ahead of Will Zalatores (279). For Bernd Weberger, the tournament ended after the 78th final round and a total of 292 hits in 40th in a draw.

Third was Jordan Speth, and fourth was Xander Chavili (both USA / 281). As a trophy, Matsuyama was awarded the jacket of the legendary Green Winner and an additional prize money of approximately US $ 2 million (approximately € 1.7 million). For the Japanese, this is the sixth success of the US tour. Ten years ago he was awarded the title of the best amateur at the masters. In 2011, Matsuyama finished 27th when he was 19 years old.

Starting with 10th in the decision, Burgenlander Weisberger recorded six ghosts and a double ghost in his last lap, compared to only three birds. With a total of six above par, he only found himself in the common 40th place.

Wiesberger ran into some problems on the last day

His best Masters result remained at 22nd in 2015. Marcus Briere finished 12th at the 2007 British Open, the best major result for an Austrian so far. Wiesberger was sixth after the second lap.

‘Honor and enthusiasm’

Meanwhile, Matsuyama’s dream came true. “I am honored and delighted to win the amazing Augusta National Award,” he said somewhat shyly and with the help of an interpreter, before adding: “Thank you.” Immediately after the last blow, he got the canister on Day 18 Green hugged, and on his way to the club, he wiped his eyes several times with his hand.

The 29-year-old kicked off the final day with a comfortable four-hit lead over the competition. After losing a stroke in his first hole, he quickly regained control of his nerves. But the bullets melted in the last holes. In the end, one punch for newcomer Masters Zalatores was enough for him. “I fought hard,” said Zlatores.

Cheered Japan

Matsuyama’s success has sparked excitement in his homeland, and the final tour can be watched live on TV at the start of the week. TBS commentator cried after the decisive blow. “Congratulations on this great achievement for you and your country,” tweeted Tiger Woods, a five-time Masters champion, who has yet to start his car accident. “This historic themasters victory will affect the entire golf world.”
