Japan's rookie superstar Hideki Matsuyama said Wednesday he is ready to impress in his debut at the British Open as he steps up his quest for a US Tour card.
"I will aim to make the cut, first of all. And, if I do, I will then target a spot in the top 10 or higher," he told reporters at Tokyo's Narita airport before leaving for next week's major event at Muirfield in Scotland.
The 21-year-old, the Asian amateur champion in 2011 and 2012, made his professional debut only in April when he started his fourth year at a Japanese university.
