Hideki Matsuyama won his third tournament in his last four starts with victory at the Tiger Woods hosted Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas.

Matsuyama has long be toted as a future major winner and many are surprised the 24-year-old from Japan is yet to win one. But all that may change in the years to come with Matsuyama dominating and eventually the Hero World Challenge by two strokes from Sweden’s Henrik Stenson.

This win makes it three victories in his last four starts for Matsuyama; not to mention five top-5’s in his last five events and an impressive performance at the World Cup of Golf in Melbourne that saw Japan in with a shot of victory in the final day.

Most eyes were on Tiger Woods’ return to professional golf and the 14-time major winner manage to complete his first four-round event (there was no cut) for the first since August 2015. ESPN caught up with Woods after the tournament that saw him finish 15th in the 17-man field.
