Hideki Matsuyama 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki
Matsuyama’s wife is Mei (married in January 2017) and his daughter is Kanna (born in July 2017).
Matsuyama was born in Matsuyama, Ehime, Japan. He was introduced to golf at the age of four, by his father.
During eighth grade, he transferred to Meitoku Gijuku Junior & Senior High School in Kochi Prefecture, in search of a better golf environment.
His nickname at the time was RPShowtime, because of his slick skills on the poker table.
He studied at Tohoku Fukushi University in Sendai. He won the 2010 Asian Amateur Championship with a score of 68-69-65-67=269.
This gave him the chance to compete as an amateur in the 2011 Masters Tournament, becoming the first Japanese amateur to do so.
At the Masters, Matsuyama was the leading amateur and won the Silver Cup, which is presented to the lowest scoring amateur.
He was the only amateur to make the cut.
A week after his victory, he finished in a tie for third at the Japan Open Golf Championship which is an event on the Japan Golf Tour.
In 2011, Matsuyama won the gold medal at the 2011 World University Games.
He also led the Japan team to the gold medal in the team event.
In October 2011, he successfully defended his title at the Asian Amateur Championship.
In November, Matsuyama won the Mitsui Sumitomo VISA Taiheiyo Masters on the Japan Golf Tour while still an amateur.
In August 2012, Matsuyama reached number one in the World Amateur Golf Ranking.
Hideki Matsuyama is the 2021 Masters Tournament winner, becoming the first Japanese man to win a major in golf.
Matsuyama’s wife, Mei Inui Matsuyama, has been a key part of his journey.
However, for years, people in golf didn’t even know that Mei Inui Matsuyama was Hideki Matsuyama’s wife.
In fact, it was not until their daughter Kanna was born in 2017 that Matsuyama even told the world he was married in the first place.
A notoriously private person, Matsuyama said no one had bothered to ask him if he was married, so he didn’t feel the need to tell the world about her.
“No one really asked me if I was married, so I didn’t have to answer that question,” Matsuyama said.
