Wednesday April 14, 2021 – Hideki Matsuyama made history on Sunday, becoming the first male Japanese golfer to capture a Major championship. And while this Masters victory alone will propel him to legendary status, it’s the prospect of what could be that intrigues us.
Major Championships have their perks…
Certain analysts think that this win could be worth upwards of a billion (yes that’s a “B”) dollars in endorsements for Hideki.
Now you’re probably thinking that’s absurd. But, when you consider the fact that he’s already earning 8-figures from brands such as Srixon, Lexus, and Nomura Securities, among others, combined with the skyrocketing popularity of golf in his home country of Japan, it’s not out of the realm of possibility.
Regardless of whether or not you appreciate the logic, it will undoubtedly be one hell of a year for Hideki.
