Hideki Matsuyama

Charlotte, North Carolina

Quail Hollow Club

Press Conference

Q. Maybe some thoughts on Tom Kim, what he brings to the team and how he's been with the team for these few days.

HIDEKI MATSUYAMA: We played together first time at (indiscernible). I thought he was a great player. He's obviously speaking perfect English, but it feels like he's mixing with the team really well. So a great player.

Q. What's the most impressive thing about his game?

HIDEKI MATSUYAMA: I feel like he's got a great tee shot and short game. So I think he's really good at (indiscernible).

Q. Are there specific areas of this golf course that you really like?

HIDEKI MATSUYAMA: Yes, it's a very challenging golf course, and that's something that I really like about it. Each hole is very challenging, so you've really got to hit good target, tee shot, second shot, or else you'll get in trouble. So I think the challenging part is my favorite part.

Q. (Indiscernible) is there anything in specific you look for in terms of short irons?

HIDEKI MATSUYAMA: To be honest, I feel like I wasn't playing that good. So I'm not really sure about that stat. I wasn't playing very well.

Q. When you're playing alternate shot, how do you decide whose ball to use?

HIDEKI MATSUYAMA: I have no problem with using a different ball. So I'll rely that on them.

Q. How did you like your new driver last week?

HIDEKI MATSUYAMA: Yes, it was pretty wild last week, but I'm feeling pretty good this week. So I'm looking forward to it.

Q. This is a pretty big tournament. If your team could pull off this upset, what would it mean for you in your career?

HIDEKI MATSUYAMA: Yes, that will mean very big for me. Winning on a team event is something that you don't really get to experience in a regular TOUR season. So we're hoping to do that.

I'm pretty sure Adam is hoping for a lot more. So, yeah, looking forward to it.

Q. (No microphone)?

HIDEKI MATSUYAMA: Simply this is where I belong.

Q. If there were ever a PGA TOUR/LIV Golf event, would you play in that?

HIDEKI MATSUYAMA: I can't decide something like that because there's nothing specific about it.
