After being played in California in 2020 due to the pandemic, the Zozo Championship returns to Japan in 2021 for the third edition of the event, with a solid field awaiting led by reigning Masters champion and local hero Hideki Matsuyama.

Along with Matsuyama, Collin Morikawa, who has family ties to Japan, is another current major champion set to play at Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club. He will be joined by three others who competed with him at the Ryder Cup: Paul Casey, Tommy Fleetwood and Xander Schauffele. All three also played in Japan in August at the Tokyo Olympics, with Schauffele walking away with the gold medal.

Meanwhile, two prominent names are making their debuts in Japan: Rickie Fowler played in the Zozo a year ago at Sherwood Country Club, and Will Zalatoris, the reigning PGA Tour rookie of the year, is making the trip over for the first time after receiving a sponsor’s exemption.

One tour pro who will not be in Japan is Patrick Cantlay, the defending champion. Cantlay was four back after 54 holes but rallied to win at Sherwood, the first victory during a season in which he’d go on to win the FedEx Cup title.

In the inaugural edition of the Zozo Championship in 2019, Tiger Woods pulled out the victory at Narashino Country Club, which was his 82nd career PGA Tour win, tying Sam Snead for the all-time victory record on tour.
