August, Ga. (Reuters) – Adam Scott remembers the reception he received in Japan after winning the Masters eight years ago, so the Australian kept in mind what Hideki Matsuyama had in store when he returned home with champion’s green coat.

Scott, Matsuyama’s teammate in four international teams for the Presidential Cup, was delighted to see the 29-year-old win the Masters at Augusta National on Sunday to become the first major men’s championship of Japan.

“I brought my green coat over there (to Japan) and it was an incredible response I got, so I can only imagine what Hideki would go through,” said Scott. after finishing at 54th, last among those who performed.

Matsuyama carries on his shoulders the weight of the country’s expectation, and he survived nervous moments before winning a famous hit.

“I felt sorry for him last night because I think it was probably one of the hardest sleeps he’s ever had,” said another Masters champion, 2011 South Africa’s 2011 winner Charl Schwartzel. .

Both Scott and Schwartzel gave some details about Matsuyama’s character, based on their experiences together at the Presidential Cup.

“I think he might know a little more English than he can do, but it’s easy for him to wear a flash and not be distracted by a lot of noise,” Scott said.

“I think he’s a pretty fierce character, really, although we didn’t really see that, but was obsessed with his game.”

Schwartzel added: “When I won the blue jacket, he was a low amateur, so he sat next to me when I gave a presentation.

“He has shown us for the past 10 years that he was here that when he started, he was a guy who was always confident.

“I think he can pull himself down when he starts to play badly. He has a lot of expectations.”

More expectations have been met this week.
