Hideki Matsuyama was spotted at an Atlanta airport the day after winning The Masters.
Matsuyama was said to be flying commercial even after winning more than $2 million.
Matsuyama's green jacket was also seen draped over his arm and a seat.
Winning the 2021 Masters hasn't led Hideki Matsuyama to spruce up his travel arrangements.
Matsuyama was seen at an Atlanta airport on Monday strolling to a commercial flight with his new green jacket casually draped over his arm, according to Barstool.
Another photo by a fan showed Matsuyama waiting at his terminal with the jacket draped over the seat next to him as he waited to board a flight to Chicago.
Despite now owning over $33 million in career earnings and potentially being set to make over $1 billion because of what this win means in Japan, Matsuyama declined to book a private jet and didn't even bother getting a carrying case or garment bag for his jacket.
Matsuyama's latest travel style falls in line with his blue-collar reputation as someone who typically avoids the glitzier side of the professional golf lifestyle.
Matsuyama drives a minivan and keeps his personal life so private that he kept his wife and child a secret until 2017.
During a rain delay on Saturday, while most competitors may have been getting massages or having a drink in the clubhouse, Matsuyama simply stayed in his car and played games on his phone, according to Golf Digest.
The Japanese golfer was the low amateur at Augusta National 10 years ago, a performance that announced his arrival to the wider world of golf as a potential future champion. Since then, Matsuyama had finished in the top 20 at the Masters five times, including a solo-fifth finish in 2015.
