After a week in the Sin City, the PGA Tour heads to the other side of the globe for the Zozo Championship at Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club in Chiba, Japan. There are 78 players in the field and there will be no cut Friday night.
Several stars of the game have made the lengthy trip to East Asia including defending champion Hideki Matsuyama, who sits at +1200 to repeat. The betting favorite, however, is Xander Schauffele at +750. Schauffele played for the U.S. at the Presidents Cup last month but this will be his first start of the new 2022-23 season.
Other big names in the field include last week’s winner Tom Kim, Sungjae Im, Collin Morikawa, Cameron Young and Viktor Hovland.
