Hideki Matsuyama made golf history on Sunday, becoming the first-ever Japanese male golfer to win a major championship by earning the 2021 Masters title.
The cherry on top of his victory was when he was praised by the biggest name in the world of golf: Tiger Woods.
Woods wrote on his Twitter account, "Making Japan proud Hideki. Congratulations on such a huge accomplishment for you and your country. This historical @TheMasters win will impact the entire golf world."
Tiger Woods, who was not present at the 2021 tournament as he's still recovering from a car crash in February, has managed to capture the jacket five times, the most recent being in 2019 - in fact, the most recent Masters to be played in its traditional April timeslot. That title marked Tiger Woods' first major in almost 11 years, and 15th major title overall.
Woods himself made Masters history in 1997 when he won his first green jacket. That was the first major win of his career and made Woods the first African-American winner at Augusta National.
Hideki Matsuyama is the second man from an Asian country to ever win a major, according to The Associated Press.
Y.E. Yang of South Korea defeated Woods to win the 2009 PGA Championship.
