Australian Adam Scott is excited to be paired with Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama for the opening round of the 2013 Presidents Cup at Muirfield Village Golf Club. Though only 21 and only having turned professional this past April, Matsuyama has won three times on the Japan Golf Tour in 2013.

After his final round of practice before the tournament begins on Thursday, Scott spoke about being partners with the young star:

We had some kind of knowledge of each other’s game and hey, I’m more than happy to play with a guy who has won three times (this year) and performing the way he is.

 

At 21, he’s pretty much all business at this point. I can see he works really hard at his game and I think he’s nervous and excited for this week. I’m looking forward to playing with Hideki (Reuters).

As far as a potential language barrier, Scott laughed at the notion: “Good shot is the international language. Everyone understands that.”

Scott and Matsuyama will take on the U.S. duo of Bill Haas and Webb Simpson. Stay tuned to FanSided for updates, scores, and reactions throughout the tournament.
