Hideki Matsuyama Wins Bridgestone Invitational with Sunday 61

A great week at Firestone Country Club concluded with a 9-under 61 that tied the course record and won Hideki Matsuyama the Bridgestone Invitational.

“I knew 61 was the number,” said Matsu. “I was thinking about that at 16. I knew if I birdied 16,17,18 I could get there.” Get-there he did, as he soared past Zach Johnson and Thomas Pieters with a 4-foot birdie putt on 16, an 8-foot birdie putt on 17 and a 6-foot birdie putt on 18. He closed out the tournament with a -16 for the week and a five shot lead over Johnson.

This is Hideki’s fifth PGA Tour win and third this season, tying him with Dustin Johnson and Jordan Speith.
