ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP

Chiba, Japan
Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club – Par 70 – 7,041 yards
Field – 78 entrants
Purse – $9.95M

The Preview

Rory McIlroy emerged from a loaded field in Las Vegas at the CJ Cup to secure his 20th victory on the PGA Tour this past week at just 32 years old, but the competition level diminishes quite a bit as players must travel overseas for the upcoming ZOZO Championship.

Regardless of talent level, everyone is guaranteed 72 holes and a chunk of the almost $10M in prize money. Let’s dive right in and explore a handful of potential value plays from a DFS perspective.
