WATCH: Hideki Matsuyama Hits Stunning 3 Wood From 277 Yards To Win Sony Open Playoff


We’re barely halfway through January and it’s safe to say we’ve already seen one of the best shots of the entire year! Hideki Matsuyama’s 3 wood into the 18th hole during the Sony Open playoff will undoubtedly go down as one of the shots of 2022 – not just because of the skill involved but also due to the fact it won him his eighth PGA Tour title. The Masters champion, hitting into the late afternoon Hawaiian sun, flushed his 3 wood off the deck, producing a massive 177mph ball speed, and left himself a tap-in eagle to sink Russell Henley’s hopes of winning as the Japanese star took home the Sony Open.

Matsuyama came from five back on the final nine thanks to a closing 31 that featured four birdies and five pars, including a birdie at the 18th in regulation to get into the playoff. The 29-year-old has now won 17 times as a professional and returns to the world’s top 10.
