Presser: Matsuyami Goes Low, Uses 18 Words To Answer 3 Questions

Thanks to 19 birdies over 36 holes, Hideki Mutsuyami leads the WGC-HSBC event in China at 13-under par. The two-time PGA Tour winner has been quite impressive, to say the least.

If you follow the Tour, you know that Matsuyama is also a kick to listen to when answering the media’s questions. Let’s just say he goes way under par with his answers too.

 
After his lights-out round, in tough conditions, the 24-year-old Japanese star sat down for what turned out to be a typical Matsuyama presser. In other words, don’t go to the bathroom.

In total, the former world #1 amateur took 9 questions from the press, and gave no more than two-sentence answers to each one – with a couple of them not even a real sentences, grammatically-speaking.

 
Here are three Qs we highlighted where the total words of the questions outnumbered the words of the answers.

PRESS: Thoughts on 7-under today?

MATSUYAMA: I hit the ball really well and it was a lot of fun today.

 
PRESS: And what does having fun mean away from the golf course?

MATSUYAMA: Eating good food.

PRESS: Are you finding plenty?

MATSUYAMA: Yes.
