Hideki Matsuyama has the most experience at Quail Hollow as anyone in this week’s power rankings.

He’s teed it up here seven times, including five at the Wells Fargo Championship, once for the PGA Championship, and once for the Presidents Cup.

He’s 6-for-6 making the cut here with just one finish outside the top 40. Prior to his win at the 2021 Masters, Matsuyama put forth one of the best major championship performances of his career by taking T-5th at the 2017 PGA.

That was one of three top-20s he has at Quail Hollow. This will be his first start here since the 2022 Presidents Cup where he went 1-3-1. His play wasn’t all that bad that week as he cycled through three different playing partners. It’s hard to build chemistry that way, especially as the only Japanese player on the team. When he could play his own ball, he halved his singles match against Sam Burns.

Matsuyama is one of the most rested players in the field having used his one get-out-of-jail-free card for Signature Events by skipping the RBC Heritage. We last saw him compete at the Masters where he took T-38th.

Prior, the 32-year-old was on a hot streak of four straight top-12s highlighted by his win at the Genesis Invitational.

Matsuyama is ninth on the PGA Tour in Strokes Gained: Total (1.14). While known for his ball striking, he’s first in SG: Around-the-Green (.712). He’s second in SG: Tee-to-Green (1.535).
