Second life of Jose Maria Orazabal. He played the weekend at the Masters Tournament for the first time in seven years.
Jose Maria Orazabal, statement
“A special week. I’m really proud to make a cut.
I’m happy how I play. Sure, I missed a few shots here and there, which cost a lot, especially today at 7 and 8 o’clock, but the rest of the round played steadily today. It was pretty much the same all week, and in that regard, I’ll take quite a few positive things from this week.
It’s great to be here on the weekends. It’s true that we hit a lot of fairways this week, but it’s still not as sharp as the rest of the game and we need to improve it. That way, at least the rest of the game this week was pretty good.
The goal is to play as much as possible on the Champions Tour and see if you can enjoy the game as much as this week. Hideki Matsuyama wins the Augusta Masters and appears in the history of golf as the first major Japanese champion.
The 29-year-old won the 85th edition of the US tournament green jacket yesterday and finished -10 on the course of the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia. The Japanese defeated American Will Zaratris with one shot and the other two Americans Xander Schauffele and Jordan Spieth with three shots to win the sixth PGA Tour title.
His Augusta National debut was made in 2011, a month after the tragedy struck his hometown. After returning from general training in Australia, Matsuyama noticed that his university, Tohoku Fukushi University in Sendai, was devastated.
The Japanese initially decided not to go to Georgia to participate in the champion’s tournament, even though they were initially invited to win the Asia Pacific Amateur Championship. But it was his staff and his family that changed his mind. result? He has established himself as one of the best amateurs and won the Silver Cup.
