Q. How often do you plan on playing in the United States? Are you going to try to make it back here more often in the future?
TOSHI IZAWA: Well, at this point I'm not thinking about playing throughout the year. But a lot of spectators, and the golf course conditions are so good here in the States, I'd like to maybe gain a number of tournaments, but I have a family in Japan, and so my home tour will be in Japan for a while.
Q. How does this course compare to the courses you play back home?
TOSHI IZAWA: Well, I don't see many golf courses like this in Japan, and the tournaments I've played, from my experience, the golf courses here in the States are a little bit (more) difficult than Japan.
Q. A lot of the people in Japan are familiar with the Seattle area because of the Mariners. Do you have any familiarity with Seattle?
TOSHI IZAWA: Yes, I know that Ichiro and Sasaki play in Seattle, but personally, I am a fan of Randy Johnson.
Thank you very much.
