Popular Australian professional Matt Griffin is a recent New Zealand Open winner who now plies his trade mainly on the Japan Tour.

Melbourne golfer, Matthew Griffin, won the New Zealand Open in 2016 when defeating Japan’s Hideto Tanihara in a dramatic final hole battle, Griffin’s birdie to Tanihara’s bogey allowing him to win by one shot.

Now a regular on the Japan Golf Tour, Griffin has also played with success on the Korean and Australasian Tours winning six titles in total but his victory at the New Zealand Open remains his most significant.
