Hideki Matsuyama defended his Waste Management Phoenix Open title with a 4 hole playoff win over Webb Simpson. The duo finished the 72 hole tournament tied at -17. This was Matsuyama’s 4th PGA Tour victory and is certainly one of the “Hottest” golfers today. In his last 9 professional events, he has posted 5 wins and 2 seconds.
On the Euro Tour, Sergio Garcia went wire-to-wire at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. He shot -19 to beat out Henrik Stenson by 3 strokes.
