Hideki Matsuyama Becomes First
Japanese Player to Win Masters

Original Article

Hideki Matsuyama held off the field at the Masters on Sunday as he secured his first green jacket. Matsuyama became the first Japanese man to ever win the Masters as he finished the tournament at 10-under. Matsuyama shot an 1-over 73 on Sunday, closing the weekend one stroke ahead of second-place finisher Will Zalatoris.Matsuyama, 29, won at Augusta National in his 10th Masters appearance. He previously finished fifth at the Masters in 2015, and he entered the weekend with five career PGA Tour wins. Matsuyama had not won a tournament since 2017 before Sunday's victory.


I'm sure that there is much celebration in Japan, where golf is played by over o-tenth of the population. Hideki has been a world class player for several years, and he earned his green jacket. Will Zalatoris is a star in the making. You'll hear from him in future majors.

Hideki! Although I wanted Jordan to win, I'm very happy for Matsuyama. Zalatoris is a guy to watch, too.

I too was rooting for Jordan to win, but he got off to a bad start and fell too far behind to make it up. That he finished in third place was quite an accomplishment considering how he started. I felt Zander's pain on the 16th. He'll win that jacket one of these years.

Winner blew 5 strokes on last 4 holes. Four players close enough to challenge fumbled. Announcer was talking about Hideki getting fitted for jacket on 14. Not a strong showing.

I enjoyed watching it, although I had to hit the mute button every time the sportscasters gushed about Matsuyama carrying the weight of a country on his shoulders. Mention it once or twice, that’s ok, but I stopped counting at ten.

As an aside, when my wife and I went to the Pearl Harbor memorial some years ago, practically all of those standing around us that day appeared to be of Japanese descent. I looked at this old Japanese woman and she said to me, "our government lied to us and we are sorry for America". There is considerable remorse among the older Japanese population about what happened at Pearl Harbor. As they later came to discover, the Japanese military awakened a very complacent America and then there was Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Great TV today. The Masters is always a treat. You get to see Sports at it's finest. I was happy to see Matsuyama win. He was consistent throughout the game and won the match fair and square. And yes, a star was born with Will Zalatoris, coming in second in his first match. Xander Schauffele was also great and almost upset Hideki coming down the stretch. After the match I kept thinking if Trump was potus right now, he would be on the phone congratulating President Abe of Japan. They formed and lasting friendship and respect for each other. Also we saw how Americans act during a prestigious sporting event ... with class and dignity. I am proud of our country, our culture and our history that created us.

Hideki took most of the drama out of the Masters. Then, just when the tournament became interesting, poor Schauffele splashed on #16. He seems like a nice fellow. And I expect him to win multiple majors.

I saw Hideki’s caddy replace the flag at #18 and give a short bow.Nice. And as others have noted, classy. Dustin Johnson was gracious and the crowd gave a nice “well done” at the end. Great afternoon. (What do you suppose the commentators think of Bryson’s style strategy?)

Pulling for Spieth, Schauffele or Rose but Hideki clearly earned it despite his loose finish. He's has a rep as being the best iron player out there so no fluke. Xander has too much scar tissue already, so many strong major finishes. Zalatoris impressed, whippy strong with a 28" waist! OK he's young and needs more experience but his lag putting is awful as of today.

How Will the Pentagon Define 'Extremism'? 28 replies

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin is determined to root out “extremism” from the ranks of the military. He has just concluded a 60-day series of “listening sessions” dealing with the question of how he should go about the task of cleansing the armed forces of bad thoughts and is now ready to begin implementing programs and policies to that end. But Austin has a huge problem. He has to be able to define “extremism” in such a way as to safeguard our constitutional liberties while rooting out the skinheads, the Klan members, the gangbangers, and violent revolutionaries that make up a small but significant fraction of the armed forces. What is “extremism”?

I was surprised to read (in The Los Angeles Times) that the Biden administration's "role model for America" is... California! He wants to "Make America California." That's is a terrible idea. Californians now rush to move out of California. Some hopeful folks still move there, but so many more leave that California now loses more than 10,000 citizens every month. In fact, the state will soon lose a congressional seat. Why do Californians leave? "Exorbitant tax rates, high crime rates, the failing public school systems, the exorbitant cost of living," says reporter Kristen Tate in my new video. So many Californians move away that there's now even a shortage of U-Hauls.

President Joe “Buy a Shotgun” Biden announced plans to “go it alone” on eroding gun rights on Thursday by announcing several executive orders. Biden issued diktats to regulate plastic gun “braces” for handicapped users, criminalize AR pistols, get tough on guns you can’t sell, and begin to federalize “red flag laws” that, by definition, deny citizens their right to due process. Biden announced that rights, like that pesky Second Amendment, are not “absolute,” as PJ Media colleague Tyler O’Neill reported. Rather, they’re malleable or entirely replaceable by his lights. Biden is doing this at the behest of the anti-Second Amendment groups as a political payback, even as America has

One of the shortcomings of maps showing the potential area of naval confrontation between China on the one hand and the US, Japan and Australia on the other is they commonly depict the surface of the sea.

More and more frequently we so-called advanced moderns believe things to be true that an illiterate farmer in 1800 would have known to be false.

Last month, when Texas Governor Greg Abbott axed the state’s mask mandate and other COVID-related restrictions on businesses and people, Dr. Anthony Fauci called it “risky” and “potentially dangerous.” “When you pull back on all mitigation methods on all public health guidelines, that’s when you get into trouble and history has proven that,” Fauci told Chris Wallace of Fox News. “This isn’t just some kind of a theoretical, a point that I’m trying to make. It’s not theoretical. It actually happens.” But, there’s been no surge. In fact, cases have continued to decline.

The focus of President Joe Biden’s $2.3 trillion infrastructure bill is allegedly to address aging infrastructure across the country, but the massive bill covers a vast amount of other spending, including money for “diversifying” neighborhoods. This portion of Biden’s American Jobs Plan would change zoning laws to end single family home neighborhoods and allow for multiple unit “affordable” or low-income rental housing. According to the White House Fact Sheet, the housing effort is “an innovative new approach to eliminate state and local exclusionary zoning laws, which drive up the cost of construction and keep families from moving to neighborhoods with more opportunities

Joe Biden may have been something like a moderate, once. As a senator, he defended the Hyde Amendment, which protects pro-life taxpayers from footing the bill for something they consider to be murder. Senator Biden also voted for the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) in 1993. Even as late as 2003, Biden voted for a bill to prohibit partial-birth and late-term abortion. Biden did indeed work with Republicans to pass legislation. In 1987, Biden condemned Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s scheme to pack the Supreme Court to support the New Deal. Alas, that Joe Biden is nowhere to be found in the White House.
