What golf clubs does Hideki Matsuyama use?

Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama, the first male Japanese golfer to win a Major with his victory at the 2021 Masters, produced a moment of magic to win the 2022 Sony Open, his eighth PGA Tour Victory.

The 29-year-old was five shots behind Russell Henley entering the back nine at Waialae Country Club but reeled the American’s lead in to force a play-off, where a walk-off eagle at the first hole secured the win.
