HIDEKI MATSUYAMA has become the first male Japanese golf star to win a major at the Masters.
The 29-year-old has already amassed a healthy fortune during his career as a golfer, and it has got even bigger.
What is Hideki Matsuyama’s net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Matsuyama’s net worth is totalled at around $25million (£18.2m).
Hideki started playing golf when he was just a four-year-old and his commitment to the sport has more than paid dividends.
The Japanese star has had multiple PGA Tour wins across his career, including the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in 2017.
His bank balance has been boosted by $2,070,000 (£1,509,838.57) for winning the Masters, which is the prize money the winner receives – as well as the coveted green jacket.
