Defending champ Tiger Woods aims for historic 83 at Zozo

Jason Kokrak with the winners' trophy

Woods won the inaugural Zozo when it was played previous year in Japan.

The 2016 US Open victor finished tied for second at the 2020 PGA Championship in August at San Francisco.

Familiarity with the course could provide a boost, but the tournament's environment will be a far cry from the event Woods is accustomed to playing at Sherwood. The other was Tony Finau. The course is beautifully morphed into the natural and hilly surrounding landscape. "I think that was the first one and I think everyone was still a little sceptical about that", said McIlroy, who has been cautious himself given daughter Poppy is less than two-months-old. Check out this video from Abraham Ancer's Instagram, a flawless display of the course's tight tree-lined design. The field of Sherwood Country Club in California, will host this event that will have two great protagonists. Out of the 12 times Woods played in the tournament during those years, he won five of them.

Of course with the Masters right around the corner, McIlroy still faced questions about his preperation for the final major of the calendar year and the four-time major champion said his short game and Augusta experience could prove vital.

Matthew Wolff, who is amongst a new generation of young stars including Collin Morikawa and Viktor Hovland emerging on Tour, is looking forward to playing alongside Woods in the opening two round for the first time in his fledgling career.

Incidentally, Tiger's previous five wins at this event do not contribute to his 82 total PGA victories but this one would, so good luck Tiger in a weekend he can make history and break even more records!

Australia's Adam Scott, the victor of 14 PGA Tour titles, withdrew from the U.S. PGA Zozo Championship on Wednesday after testing positive for COVID-19. Early on in the tour's reopening stages, Scott voiced his concerns about the pandemic protocols, stating that he thought they could have been more stringent.

Dustin Johnson, the world's No. 1 player, tested positive last week at the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas.

Fifteen-time major victor Tiger Woods denied the 28-year-old the win last year, when the tournament debuted as Japan's first PGA Tour sanctioned event at Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club in Chiba.
