Hideki Matsuyama put together two brilliant closing rounds over the weekend to win the Masters golf tournament and become the first Japanese man to win any of golf's four major championships.

The Masters began Thursday in its traditional spot on the calendar, a year after it was pushed all the way to November because of the coronavirus pandemic.

No spectators were on the course last year, but this year a limited number of people were permitted to attend.

Things weren't completely back to normal yet; the face masks were proof that we still have a long way to go with Covid-19. But the course was as gorgeous as ever.
