The 2021 Zozo Championship continues late Thursday night, Oct. 21, in Japan. You can find full Round 2 tee times for the tournament at the bottom of this post.

Notable groupings for Zozo Championship Round 2

After taking his superstardom in Japan to the next level by winning the 2021 Masters, Hideki Matsuyama came up just short of medaling in the Tokyo Olympics. But Matsuyama has another chance to win on Japanese soil at this week’s Zozo Championship, and with one round complete, he’s off to a great start.

Matsuyama made six birdies in a bogey-free opening-round 64, tying him for second place with Joaquin Niemann, just one shot back of early leader and fellow Japanese pro Hiroshi Iwata.
