Hideki Matsuyama told : "It became obvious fairly quickly that the place we could impact the most would be throughout Asia,” Payne said that day. “We thought if we could identify good golfers and create heroes who would be emulated by other kids, in the process they would be attracted to the game”. Matsuyama played the second edition of the Asia-Pacific Amateur in 2010 at Kasumigaseki Country Club about an hour outside Tokyo, the host course of the Olympics this year. He won by five shots. Also in the field that year was Satoshi Kodaira, who won the RBC Heritage at Hilton Head seven years later. Three other players that week eventually earned PGA Tour cards — Meen-whee Kim and K.H. Lee of South Korea and Xinjun Zhang of China. Another player in the 2010 Asia-Pacific Amateur was 14-year-old Jazz Janewattananond of Thailand, who played in the penultimate group in the 2019 PGA Championship and was No. 38 in the world last year before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down golf. Matsuyama first appeared in Butler Cabin as low amateur in his Masters debut 10 years ago.

Hideki Matsuyama told : "It became obvious fairly quickly that the place we could impact the most would be throughout Asia,” Payne said that day. “We thought if we could identify good golfers and create heroes who would be emulated by other kids, in the process they would be attracted to the game”. Matsuyama played the second edition of the Asia-Pacific Amateur in 2010 at Kasumigaseki Country Club about an hour outside Tokyo, the host course of the Olympics this year. He won by five shots. Also in the field that year was Satoshi Kodaira, who won the RBC Heritage at Hilton Head seven years later. Three other players that week eventually earned PGA Tour cards — Meen-whee Kim and K.H. Lee of South Korea and Xinjun Zhang of China. Another player in the 2010 Asia-Pacific Amateur was 14-year-old Jazz Janewattananond of Thailand, who played in the penultimate group in the 2019 PGA Championship and was No. 38 in the world last year before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down golf. Matsuyama first appeared in Butler Cabin as low amateur in his Masters debut 10 years ago. Then, he won the Asia-Pacific again by one shot — Cameron Smith of Australia, a Masters runner-up last year, tied for fourth. “When I played in my first Masters Tournament as an amateur and made the cut, I felt for the first time that I could compete on the world stage,” Matsuyama said in a 2015 email interview. “I decided right there at Augusta National that golf would be my life long career”. That was the starting point for Matsuyama becoming an inspiration, if not a golfing hero, for Japan and perhaps other Asian countries. And now he's a Masters champion. “Hopefully, I’ll be a pioneer in this and many other Japanese will follow,” Matsuyama said during his second Sunday visit to Butler Cabin, this time as the Masters champion. “I’m glad to be able to open the floodgates hopefully, and many more will follow me”. The inspiration began before he slipped his arms into a green jacket. Following him is Takumi Kanaya, who lists his favorite players as Woods and Matsuyama. He already has cut a path similar to Matsuyama. Both went to Tohoku Fukushi University. Both won on the Japan Golf Tour as an amateur. And both won the Asia-Pacific Amateur. Matsuyama was among the first to call after Kanaya won the Asia-Pacific by going 64-65 on the weekend at Sentosa Golf Club in Singapore. He has been a mentor. Kanaya said after winning the Taiheiyo Masters in 2019, " External link
