A pictorial review of the last 30 days from around the world.
The Japanese star had a high chance to claim his first Major after 54 holes at the USPGA Championship. But he fell off the pace during a turbulent back nine that included five bogeys - including one on the 16th in which his par putt lipped off the left edge of the cup.
“The course played tough,” Matsuyama said. “The pins were receptive, though, more than yesterday. I was just disappointed the way I played.”
“The last major of the year and I was in contention,” Matsuyama said through an interpreter.
“All I can do is just try harder next time.”
Kevin Kisner, who led or shared the lead after each of the first three rounds, wound up in in a tie for seventh place. Matsuyama finished one stroke better than Kisner, in a tie for fifth place, after sharing the 36-hole lead and starting the final round one stroke back.
