Biography

The first player from Japan to win the Masters Tournament, this young man was born on February 25, 1992, in Ehime, Japan. This Japanese national began playing golf when he was just four years old. It was none other than his father who introduced him to the sport. He attended the Meitoku Gijuku Junior & Senior High School before going on to study at the Tohoku Fukushi University in Sendai. The lowest scoring amateur at the 2011 Masters Tournament, he gained entry into the prestigious competition by winning the 2010 Asian Amateur Championship. The man from Ehime went pro in 2013 and joined the PGA Tour immediately.

The Memorial Tournament of the 2013-14 season was his first PGA Tour win ever. Although he had established himself in Japan by winning eight tournaments beginning in 2011, the PGA Tour turned out to be a challenge for this man. His second win came at the Waste Management Phoenix Open in the 2015-16 season. The youngster successfully defended this title n the 2016-17 season and also won the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions that year.

After a few quiet years, he pulled a giant rabbit out of the hat by winning the Masters in 2021. What else does that hat have in store for us?

Hideki Matsuyama Wife

Playing it close to their chest comes naturally to Japanese people. This golfer is no different. He’s managed to keep information about his wife out of the public eye for quite a while now. In fact, no one even knew that he was married in the first place. His wife’s name is Mei, and she’s Japanese too.

Who is Hideki Matsuyama currently dating?

Although this man’s been mum about his wife, we do know that he loves her as much as anyone else would love their wife. Mei has been with him for a long time because he announced that he was married to her in 2017. Their relationship is still going strong, and Mei is the one he’s currently dating.

Family: Parents, Siblings & Children

Whilst we do know a few bits about his wife, there’s absolutely no information about his parents at all. A few reports indicate that his dad’s name could be Mikio, but we can’t be certain. There’s nothing on his siblings either. However, we do know that this golfer has a daughter named Kanna with his wife, Mei. She was born in July 2017, seven months after he married her.

With more than 40 million won from playing golf on the PGA Tour, this golfer hit the jackpot when he won the Masters Tournament. His earnings are going to go through the roof over the next few years. For now, we estimate his net worth to be about $60 million.

How much does Hideki Matsuyama earn per year?

This young Japanese golfer works with Lexus, Srixon, and Nomura Securities. Some reports tell us that this player made almost $10 million a year from them. However, this isn’t concrete information. Our figures suggest that it could be about half of that.
