Hideki Matsuyama, Tom Kim, Tom Cam discussed on Fore Play

Fore Play


He's only 20 years old. And that just seems like it's been very rare. It has been rare, and I think you always cringe when you say like, oh, the language barrier because you don't know if that's going to come off the wrong way, but it's just true, right? Hideki matsuyama is a massive massive star in Japan, like a enormous enormous star. Everywhere is all over billboards. I've been there. He's everywhere.

Yeah. I'm excited to talk to him. I'm really, really pumped to talk to him. I think he's going to be great on the show. And then we have Tom Fleetwood, who, like Frankie said, we have a funny history with Tom Fleetwood. He's pretty dry, sense of humor, but a great one. He clearly exhibits that with us.
