Tiger Takes Zozo

Tiger Woods played his final seven holes in the inaugural ZOZO Championship on Monday, October 28, completing a 3-under 67 to beat Hideki Matsuyama by three strokes and tie Sam Snead’s PGA Tour record of 82 victories at the Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club in Chiba. The area was recently battered by Typhoon Hagibis and as the bad weather continued, more than six inches of rain fell on the course on Friday and the event had to run through to Monday.


Woods bogeyed his first hole, the par-4 12th on Monday morning, but finished with birdies on the 14th and 18th to finish at 19-under. “It’s been a long week; five days at the top of the leaderboard is a long time,” said Woods.

As the U.S. Presidents Cup Captain, Woods was asked about picking himself for the team. “I think the player got the captain’s attention,” he cheekily replied.
