LOS ANGELES – Tiger Woods will defend his Zozo Championship title next month at Sherwood Country Club in California, the PGA Tour said on Wednesday.
The 78-player tournament, which will be held October 22-25, was relocated to California this year from Japan due to logistical issues caused by the Covid-19 outbreak.
“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,” Woods said in a PGA Tour news release.
Woods, who missed the cut at last week’s US Open, enjoyed a wire-to-wire win at last year’s Zozo Championship in October to match Sam Snead’s record of 82 PGA Tour victories.
Since his three-shot triumph over Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama, Woods has competed in seven official PGA Tour events, with his best finish a share on ninth place at last January’s Farmers Insurance Open.
