UPDATE NO. 8 (6:05 p.m. ET): Here’s your recap of Matsuyama’s mastery.

UPDATE NO. 7 (5:37 p.m. ET): Oh my, Hideki. A birdie at 18, and that’s a 61, tying the course record. Unreal. He finishes 16 under and leads by five with Zach Johnson playing 18.

UPDATE NO. 6 (5:22 p.m. ET): Matsuyama birdies 17 to move to 15 under (8 under on the round) and now he leads by four. He will win.

UPDATE NO. 5 (5:10 p.m. ET): Matsuyama birdies 16 after a beautiful approach and a shaky but holed 4-footer. He’s now 14 under and holds a three-shot lead.

UPDATE NO. 4 (4:31 p.m. ET): Hideki is rolling. A birdie at 13 moves him to 13 under and he still leads by two. Zach Johnson is two behind. Hoffman is three back, and McIlroy is now seven off the pace.

UPDATE NO. 3 (3:27 p.m. ET): Hideki Matsuyama went eagle-birdie on Nos. 2 and 3, and added another birdie at No. 6. He’s parred Nos. 7 and 8 and is 11 under and one ahead. Rory McIlroy reached 9 under after a birdie at six, but he’s now three back after bogeying the ninth.

UPDATE NO. 2 (2:35 p.m. ET): Here. Comes. Rory.

Birdies at No. 2 and No. 4 moved him to 8 under and one back. The lead is now 10 under, so he’s two currently back of Hideki Matsuyama, Zach Johnson and Thomas Pieters. But this will be exciting.

UPDATE NO. 1 (1:15 p.m. ET): Alex Noren is out in 5-under 30 and jumped 21 spots to a tie for ninth at 4 under. Jordan Spieth is still 2 under and seven back after fours straight pars to start. Jason Day begins with par and remains 3 under. The leaders are still about an hour away from teeing off.

Should be a fun Sunday, though!
