Q.テつ How is your injury, your thumb?

Q.テつ Is it kind of lonely at times?テつ Are there any other players that you spend time with?
HIDEKI MATSUYAMA:テつ I haven't been able to make much friends yet, but luckily Ryo from Japan is on this Tour with me, so I'd like to make friends along with him.

Q.テつ Are there certain courses on the PGA TOUR that you haven't played yet?
HIDEKI MATSUYAMA:テつ All the tournaments are courses that I've only seen on TV, so I'm really looking forward to playing all of those.
