“What a moment for the game, what a moment for the country of Japan and what a moment for Hideki Matsuyama,” co-host Jay Randolph Jr. says of the Masters champion. What could it be worth to Matsuyama? Likely a billion (that's dollars, not yen), Randolph predicts. “He’s the Tiger Woods of the Far East.” Co-host Bob Bubka and Randolph review the play at Augusta National before shifting to this week’s PGA Tour event, the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links on Hilton Head Island, S.C. Will Zalatoris, Xander Schauffele, and Jordan Spieth discuss their play at Augusta National while winner Hideki Matsuyama celebrates his new station in life in Japan.
