Matsuyama was on the upswing a couple years ago but just hasn’t put it completely together at a high level yet. He’s had some impressive finishes at majors, including two top-fives in 2017, but he’s failed to get inside the top 15 since. The Open has been his worse major in his career, which is interesting given his excellent ball-striking and tee-to-green game. Perhaps it’s his high ball flight into greens: In his 12 rounds in windy conditions, he’s struggled, although most of that was due to the short game.

All in all, Hideki has been a solid links player, and while he’s been unable to put up high-end results, he’s been very steady. I wouldn’t buy him in to-win markets, but he could be worth a look as a low-owned DFS play in tournaments who likely won’t ruin your lineups.
