While the enthronement ceremony is happening in Japan, the PGA TOUR will look to crown its first-ever champion on Japanese soil at the brand-new ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP.
Located east of Tokyo in Chiba, Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club is a composite track that doesn’t even stretch to 7,100 yards and will play (34-36) Par-70. With five Par-3 holes, water and tree-lined fairways, those who keep it in play this week should thrive.
Gamers, you aren’t seeing double, as each hole will have two green complexes. The design was to ensure that perfect green conditions, regardless of season, would be in play. The TOUR will NOT be using both greens during play, with the exception of one hole to honor this tradition.
As is the case with new tracks used on TOUR, everyone will be learning on the fly, especially on the greens. With a field of only 78 (no cut) again, I’d expect the quickest learners, the elite, to make the most noise this week again. On the line is another $9.75 million purse, with the winner taking home $1.75 million and 500 Fed ExCup points. Watch Now
