Legendarerna hyllar Matsuyama
Nicklaus, Sörenstam och Tiger gratulerade Matsuyama efter Masterssegern.
Hideki Matsuyama höll undan med andan i halsen och vann Masters med ett slags marginal till Will Zalatoris.
Och under natten svensk tid har gratulationer strömmat in till japanen, som tog sin första majorseger på Augusta National.
Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods och Annika Sörenstam är bara några av alla dem som imponerats av japanens seger.
I want to send my heartfelt congratulations to Hideki Matsuyama for his Masters Tournament victory, and for being the first Japanese male golfer to win a major championship. I’m not only very happy and pleased for Hideki, but also the whole golfing world of Japan. pic.twitter.com/m56JVHH0LI— Jack Nicklaus (@jacknicklaus) April 12, 2021
Making Japan proud Hideki. Congratulations on such a huge accomplishment for you and your country. This historical @TheMasters win will impact the entire golf world.— Tiger Woods (@TigerWoods) April 11, 2021
Congratulations to #HidekiMatsuyama, the first Asian born player to win @TheMasters. With the @NBCOlympics going to Japan later this year, their countryman’s win will be sure to inspire young golfers throughout Asia. pic.twitter.com/iD6y5LKppS— Annika Sorenstam (@ANNIKA59) April 12, 2021
I am absolutely delighted to see Hideki win the Masters. From the moment he took the lead yesterday, he looked in complete control. He had a small hiccup on 15 and 16 but responded with two great drives on 17 and 18 to help close out his first Major Championship. pic.twitter.com/WLUTCfMiGr— GARY PLAYER (@garyplayer) April 12, 2021
