Japan will wake up on Sunday with the same expectation that last April he attended the final day of the Masters, a Monday morning in which there was the highest work absenteeism of the year to see Hideki Matsuyama’s green jacket.

After overcoming the contagion of Covid-19, After having to get up early on Saturday to play two holes, make a birdie, and go out again at four o’clock in the main game with Xander Schauffele and Carlos Ortiz, the Japanese golfer positioned himself within a single stroke of the American after a score card. 67 strokes.

The traffic jam is formidable. Eight players, including Paul Casey, who seeks to succeed his compatriot Justin Rose, and Rory McIlroy, the golfer who plays without a cap because the ones that are not made to measure are too baggy. Without options are Adri Arnaus, sunk on Saturday (74 hits) and Jorge Campillo (69), forty-fifth and fifty-fourth.

It was an uninterrupted day, extremely hot, muggy. To score. Matsuyama, who started the day of the movement with bogey, made five birdies and did not go to bed because a blow from Schauffele, a lover of the Games, allowed him a hit on the last hole. Chase the Olympic Masters-gold double that will open a new era in statistics. The one in San Diego, the first gold for the United States since 1900.

Latin American advance

Latin America will have three pieces to move. The irregular Carlos Ortiz (69, with five birdies and three bogeys) joins the Colombian Sebastin Muoz (66) and the surprising Chilean Mito Pereira (68), in search of the third Olympic gold in the history of the country. They only got two in Mass’s double, along with Fernando Gonzlez in doubles. in Athens 2004.

Arnaus didn’t take a fairway until the 11th hole. Coupled with the fact that of the nine putts that he had below four meters, he did not hit any, he throws an explanation of what happened. They were intoned from there and in view of how he worked later in the practice field, a good farewell is expected. At the level that Campillo finally found.
