Hideki Matsuyama in search of first major

Hideki Matsuyama enters the 2017 PGA Championship as the hottest player on the PGA Tour.

Matsuyama absolutely torched the field last week at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational after firing a course record 61 on Sunday which earned him a five shot victory over Zach Johnson.

The 25 year-old already has five wins under his belt but he is still chasing his first ever win at one of golf’s majors. He had a second place finish earlier this year at the U.S Open and is considered one of the favourites to win the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow.

Matsuyama enters this week as the No. 1 ranked player in the FedEx Cup standings ahead of Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson.

Mark Zecchino and Bob Weeks discussed Matsuyama’s chances this week at the PGA Championship on Golf Talk Canada.
