Zozo Championship 2021: Complete Breakdown of the Prize Money From Winner to Last-Place

This year, the Zozo Championship is back in Japan for the third edition of the tournament. The Zozo Championship is the PGA Tour’s first event in Japan and is held at the Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club in Chiba.

The Zozo Championship began in 2019, moving to the Sherwood Country Club last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A year later, the championship is back in Japan. Notably, this will also be the PGA Tour’s first event back in Asia after the WGC-HSBC Champions in 2019.

Tiger Woods was the first player to win the event, which was also the 82nd win in his career. While Woods and Justin Thomas were among a few players participating last year, Patrick Cantlay won the event’s second edition. However, as a defending champion, Cantlay will not be playing this year.
