Can Hideki Matsuyama End His Winless Drought?

It has been over three years since Hideki Matsuyama's last win of any kind, and it has turned into a head-scratching dilemma for the 28-year-old out of Japan. Matsuyama is one of the best players on tour, and we see that by him ranking inside the top-25 compared to the field in strokes gained off the tee, strokes gained approach, strokes gained around the green and long iron proximity. Unfortunately, things haven't been as ideal for the 19th-ranked player in the world once he finds himself having to putt, rating near the bottom on almost all surfaces. The five-time PGA Tour winner has been close to neutral on Bentgrass greens, providing us hope that he can turn it around this weekend in Vegas, but he will need an improvement to get himself back to where he belongs. With all that being said, we wouldn't put it past him. His upside is tantalizing.
