Japanese star Hideki Matsuyama says he will try and steer clear of politics when he plays golf with Donald Trump.
The World No 4 will tee up alongside the US president and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo when Trump visits Japan on November 5-7 as part of a five-nation Asia tour.
Matsuyama admitted he had no idea how the opportunity to play with Trump came about.
"I wish I knew too," he said in Shanghai on Thursday after the first round of the WGC-HSBC Champions.
"But it's an honour to play with the prime minister from Japan and the president of the United States and I am looking forward to it.
"We will have a fun day."
Asked if he intends to talk politics with Trump, Matsuyama said: "I am a professional golfer, not a politician.
"We just look forward to having a fun day, hopefully we will enjoy it and I will have the opportunity again in the future."
