After one year stateside due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP returns to Narashino Country Club in Japan.
Last year, Sherwood Country Club in Southern California hosted the tournament, which was a fantastic event that saw Patrick Cantlay edge Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas by one stroke. None of those three are in the field this year, but two of the top 10 in the world are there.
The inaugural ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP back in 2019 was won by Tiger Woods, by three strokes over Hideki Matsuyama, who travels to his home country for this one.
Like last week’s CJ CUP, the ZOZO is a no-cut event with 78 players, featuring the top-60 who choose to play from last season’s FedEx Cup standings.
Ryder Cup winners Collin Morikawa and Xander Schauffele are scheduled to make the trip to the Far East. Morikawa was lights out on Sunday for the final round of the CJ CUP this past weekend, shooting 10-under on the day to finish 24-under — one stroke shy of winner Rory McIlroy.
Schauffele was in action, as well, making his first competitive appearance since the Ryder Cup in late September. He finished tied for 18th at 18-under, which included a stellar 9-under final round.
Behind Morikawa and Schauffele on the oddsboard is Matsuyama, the 2021 Masters champion.
Other noteworthy names in the field include Paul Casey and Will Zalatoris, as well as a host of Japanese players.
It’s not a particularly deep no-cut field. Emiliano Grillo, Chris Kirk, Keegan Bradley and Erik Van Rooyen all check in under 50-1.
Garrick Higgo, Sebastian Munoz and Doug Ghim are all interesting names further down the board at 80-1.
