Matsuyama makes turn five shots clear at Masters

Hideki Matsuyama, bidding to become the first Japanese man to win a major, held a commanding five-shot lead over Masters rookie Will Zalatoris midway through his final round at Augusta National on Sunday. Matsuyama, who began the day with a four-shot lead, made a shaky start but reached the turn in two-under-par 34 that left him at 13 under on the week at the year’s first major. Zalatoris, one of four players who began the day in a share of second place, was two groups ahead of Matsuyama and one under through 10 holes as the year’s first major was shaping up to be a two-man battle down the stretch.
