Zozo Championship history, results and past winners



The Zozo Championship is the PGA Tour's Japan event, with the tournament having been played at different points in the schedule though now it's currently played in the fall portion of the schedule.

The event, which was first played in 2019, has been slated to be played in Japan. It is co-sanctioned with the Japan Golf Tour.

The event moved in 2020, however, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions it created in Japan.

Tiger Woods won the inaugural edition of the event, with no repeat winners to this point in its short history.
