DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) - Japanese star Hideki Matsuyama made birdie on the final hole Sunday at the Memorial, and then won with a par in the playoff for his first American victory.

Matsuyama didn't look like a winner when hit a poor tee shot on the 18th hole. Lightly slamming his driver on the ground in disgust, the head broke off. He hit an approach to 5 feet for birdie for a 3-under 69. That put him in a playoff with Kevin Na, who finished off his 64 about two hours earlier.

In the playoff, Na drove into the creek. Matsuyama holed a 10-foot par putt for his sixth career win.

Masters champion Bubba Watson was in the lead until a drive out-of-bounds led to double bogey. He missed the playoff by one shot.
