The PGA Tour will play its first official event in Japan this week at the inaugural Zozo Championship. A packed field is set to tee it up including Tiger Woods, reigning FedEx Cup champion Rory McIlroy and former FedEx Cup champions Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth. Of the top 50 in the World Ranking, 31 are scheduled to play at Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club.
This will be the first official PGA Tour fall event that Woods has played since the Safeway Open in 2011. As U.S. President Cup captain, Woods will be playing alongside two players (Thomas and Xander Schauffele) who have already clinched a spot on his American team as well as several hopefuls for a captain's picks: Gary Woodland, Tony Finau, Patrick Reed, Spieth, Kevin Kisner, and Kevin Na.
The 78-golfer field will be playing for 500 FedEx Cup points. This is the second of three PGA Tour events in Asia, sandwiched between last week's CJ Cup in Korea and next week's WGC-HSBC Champions in China.
Golf Channel will carry live coverage on Wednesday and Thursday from 11 p.m.-3 a.m. EDT, as well as Friday and Saturday from 10:30 p.m.-2:30 a.m. EDT.
