Tiger Woods Commits to ZOZO Championship
Tiger Woods has committed to playing in the ZOZO Championship at Sherwood Country Club.
The tournament was held in Japan last year, but moved to the U.S. this year due to COVID.
“I am excited to defend my title at the ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP. It is disappointing that we will not be able to play in Japan this year, but Sherwood Country Club will be a great backdrop for what I know will be a great championship,” said Woods on Twitter.
Woods is the defending champion.
This will likely be his last start before The Masters in November.
The ZOZO Championship
The ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP @ SHERWOOD will feature 78 professionals, including the leading players from the 2019-20 FedExCup points list, players designated by the Japan Golf Tour Organization and sponsor exemptions. In addition to the $8 million purse.
Moving to Sherwood
Sherwood is a Jack Nicklaus Signature designed golf course and was the venue for Woods’ tournament, the Hero World Challenge, from 2000 to 2013.
Woods has a terrific record at Sherwood where he won his own event five times (2001, 2004, 2006, 2007 and 2011) and finished runner-up on five other occasions, thus raising anticipation that the 2020 ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP @ SHERWOOD could produce an unprecedented 83rd PGA TOUR title for Woods.
