Matsuyama Tops Field At Hero | 10th Year Seniors
by RENALDO Hideki Matsuyama has been one of the hottest golfers on the PGA Tour recently, and that stellar play continued in the Bahamas en route to the 2016 Hero World Challenge Championship. In a tournament dominated by the return of Tiger Woods, Matsuyama became the story, shooting -18 under (270) to claim the tournament title at the Albany Golf Course. Ranked No.6 in the world, the Japanese native withstood a late rally from No.4 ranked Henrik Stenson of Sweden who finished two shots back at -16 (272). Matsuyama entered the fourth and final round with a commanding seven stroke lead, but nearly faltered down the stretch as he bogied 14 while Stenson birdied both 14 and 16. He had his worst round of the tournament, shooting a 73 on the final day, but was able to hold on down the stretch for the win. "The back nine was a struggle, especially with that double bogey at 10. But somehow I was able to make pars there at 16, 17, 18, really difficult holes so I'm very happy," he said,
