Hideki Matsuyama, the coveted green jacket is yours.
Coming into the final day with a four stroke lead, Matsuyama managed to hold his lead and finished the day as a Masters champion. He becomes the first Japanese-born male to win a major, and it is also his first career major win.
Matsuyama finished the tournament shooting 69-71-65-73, and is only one of four players to win the Masters with an above-par round on the final day.
After his final putt sank on No. 18, golf fans took to social media to express their excitement for Matsuyama and his historic achievement.
History for Hideki!
