Donald Trump is known, among many other things, for his love of golf and his trip to Japan next month will include a bit of a treat.

Recently re-elected prime minister of Japan Shinzo Abe has told United States president Trump he has arranged for them to play a round with world number four Hideki Matsuyama, according to a summary of their telephone conversation published by the Asian nation's Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Tuesday.

Trump will arrive in Japan on November 5 and is scheduled to head out with Abe and Matsuyama that day.

The politicians also golfed together last February and were joined at the tee by four-time major winner Ernie Els on that occasion.


The immediate focus for Matsuyama, though, will be on defending his WGC-HSBC Champions title in Shanghai this weekend.

His company for the start of that event will be world number one Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm.
