Matsuyama opened with a 2-under 69 on Thursday at TPC Scottsdale. The 25-year-old Japanese star has five PGA Tour victories, also winning the World Golf Championships' HSBC Champions and Bridgestone Invitational last year. He tied for 12th last week at Torrey Pines in San Diego.

Matsuyama won the last two years on the fourth hole of playoffs, beating Rickie Fowler in 2016 and Webb Simpson in 2017. Palmer won the Phoenix Open three times in a row from 1961-63.
