Tools: Matsuyama’s Winning Clubs At The Hero

Hideki Matsuyama earned his fourth win in his last five starts with a two-stroke victory at the Hero World Challenge over the weekend. Matsuyama fired rounds of 65-67-65-73 to hang on down the stretch over Henrik Stenson.

Check out the Callaway, TaylorMade, Srixon and Cleveland equipment he used.

Being an unofficial Tour event, stats for the Hero were hard to come by, but the eye test is proving that the difference between Matsuyama in the last three months compared to previous tournaments is the improvement he’s made on the greens. Using a putter that is very similar to the magical flatstick used by the tournament host, Matsuyama was walking in putts all week in the Bahamas.
