Hideki Matsuyama moved up a place to fourth in the world golf rankings released Sunday, matching the highest-ever position by a Japanese male player.

Matsuyama did not play in the latest event on the tour but he replaces Sweden’s Henrik Stenson in fourth place. He ties compatriot Tsuneyuki Nakajima as the highest-ranked Japanese player. Nakajima reached fourth in 1987.
