Previewing Zozo Championship Round 3

Hideki Matsuyama just missed out on an Olympic medal on home soil at the Tokyo Games this summer, but through two rounds at the Zozo Championship, he has his eyes set on a victory that will more than make up for it.

The 2021 Masters champion began the second round trailing by one shot and put together a two-under 68 to move into the lead all by himself at eight under.
