A blistering back nine saw Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama hold off a determined challenge from Cameron Tringale to win the Zozo Championship by five shots in front of his adoring Japanese supporters on Sunday.

With the gallery restricted to 5,000 fans, Matsuyama's final round 65 earned him the title at the Narashino Country Club in Chiba as Tringale's challenge faltered over the final two holes.

The 29-year-old was forced to show his class over the back nine to see off the world No. 69 and end the tournament 15 under par, hitting a spectacular eagle on the 18th to seal the win in style.
