Tiger Woods has confirmed his participation in this year’s Zozo Championship where he will be out to defend his title after claiming victory in 2019.
Woods, who missed the cut at last week’s US Open in New York, made the announcement on Twitter on Wednesday evening and is looking forward to the event, which will most likely also be his only competition before the Masters in November.
‘I am excited to defend my title [at the Zozo Championship]. 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 Tweeted.

This year’s edition of the event had to be relocated to American shores due to the Covid-19 pandemic as it usually co-sanctioned by the Japan Golf Tour.
But, Woods will feel right at home at Sherwood Country Club after previously hosting the annual world challenge at the venue from 2000 to 2013.
The 15-time Major winner will, however, be looking to sharpen his form in the process after struggling somewhat since the PGA Tour restarted.
He will also be the defending champion at Augusta National when the much-anticipated 2020 Masters gets under way on 12 November.
