Picture this: It’s Monday after the Masters and you’re slowly moving through Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport making your way to your gate to fly home after a weekend at Augusta National.

Something green catches your eye. That’s not uncommon at the biggest airport for Masters traffic the day after the tournament. Then you look a little closer and realize it’s a green jacket. Scratch that, the green jacket.

Then you realize it’s 2021 Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama.

After his historic major championship victory, the 29-year-old native of Japan was spotted casually sitting at the airport with the green jacket draped over a chair like an old coat.

Riggs, host of Barstool’s Fore Play podcast, shared a close-up picture he was sent of Matsuyama and his team at the airport. Even after the $2.07 million payday, it’s cool to see Matsuyama among the patrons making their way home.

That said, his departure from Georgia looks a bit different than Jordan Spieth’s six years ago.
