  • Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Japan’s Champion: Matsuyama Wins the Masters for His Nation” – below is their description.

    Hideki Matsuyama almost turned down his first chance to play the Masters. It was a month after a devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan, disasters that killed thousands and destroyed much of the region he called home in March 2011.

    He decided to play a month later, only because he thought it would lift spirits.

    A decade later, he lifted his country again — becoming Japan’s first man to win a golf major. Matsuyama’s one-shot victory over Will Zalatoris at Augusta National made him the Masters champion, easily the biggest moment for the sport in his golf-crazed homeland.
