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.
