I have 2 Japanese friends and play every Wednesday and know what you mean, Humble. Great guys! BTW Congratulations to Hidecki [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy I think he will be aro

Hats off to Hideki. His face and body language walking up 18 gave me goosebumps. Anyone else excited to see his Champions dinner menu?

+100. I’ve seen Matsuyama light it up before without winning - good to see him get another win, at the best major to boot. They say Japan will go crazy, good for them. And it was nice to see him show

Maybe one day he will get his PGA tour card.   Right now he can't even compete in the Fed Ex Playoffs.    Gotta get a win or two to be considered a "star" 

I was really pulling for him to get his first win and win his first masters.

 

I am curious how he is in the Masters or was this sarcasm?

He does not have his tour card. He made it to the Masters by finishing in the top 10 at the 2020 US Open at Winged Foot where he tied for 6th.

He made it into the masters by being in the top 50 in the world rankings.

His first win came at The Memorial at Jack's place in 2014.  He's been around quite awhile.

Nice first major for Hideki; he will get more.

We weren't referring to Hideki;  we were talking about Zalatoris.  Zalatoris has 9 PGA starts and 1 Korn Ferry win (2020)

Technically the 2020 USOpen Top 10 finish exemption came first.  Which is he was allowed to play practice rounds this past winter ntet before he cracked the Top 50 I believe

I also loved his caddy bowing to the course as a show of respect. 

His response to Jim's first question in Butler Cabin was quintessential Japanese culture on display. Loved it!

You are correct. I mistakenly thought it was top 10 from past majors. Either way, he's qualified for next year's Masters already thanks to his second place finish.

Per the masters site he only qualified by being in Top 50.  US Open is top 4.    The commentators said he played as a guest of a member.

How much longer till Japan is officially arrived as a golf power? More so on the womens side but Hideki-Masters, Shibuno-2019 British LPGA, and Kajitani-ANWA. Some seriously big wins from a small sample size of players.

I’m sure he will have all the sponsors exemptions he wants for the coming months and he just won 1.25 million for 2nd place and that finish will virtually lock up his tour card for next year since all he has to do is earn enough “non quailfying “ Fed Ex cup points to be in the top 125.

He already had enough “non qualifying” points to be in the top 20 and he would have grabbed another 300 points today

That’s correct, he played his practice rounds as a guest of a member who is a Wake Forest Alumni.

He qualified for the Masters by being in the Top 50 in the OGWR after the Matchplay.

Interestingly he says he only made it into the US Open because of COVID-19. The USGA didn’t hold the regional qualifiers because of the pandemic so they invited several guys that were doing well on the Korn Ferry Tour....he said he wouldn’t have tried to qualify this year because he didn’t think his game was ready......I guess he was wrong about that.

Hmmh. You could be correct i saw a listing earlier in the week that showed everyones invitation qualification.   Not really important either way, he was there, all that matters. 
 

I do know for a fact the Top 10 in the 2020 Open gets him in this years.  But I think he’ll be there on a few accounts.

He earned special temporary privileges this year so he’s in most of the events already and being inside top 50 also get him in WGC. He needs to win to get his actual tour card. With his temporary status he isn’t qualified for FedEx cup unless he wins an event. This is the same way Spieth was in 2013. 
 

he could finish 2nd place in every event the rest of the way and still wouldn’t make the FedEx cup.

It’s a money thing. It costs a lot to have someone like hideki playing a full bag or even irons and woods. Even though the Dunlop brand under SRI sports has a bunch of money they don’t spend a lot on their golf sponsorship deals. The cost to have hideki play their driver is the same as getting 5 other pros to play their ball. He has bounced between some of the Japanese’s Srixon driver offering and at least Callaway drivers in the past.
