Hideki Matsuyama, who solidified his stardom with a win at the 2021 Masters, is in contention early after firing a first-round 64 to get to six under. Despite being only one shot back, he didn’t have the lowest score among Japanese golfers. That honor belonged to Hiroshi Iwata, who made six birdies and an eagle to take the lead at seven under.
