The third round of 2021 Zozo Championship kicks off Saturday morning in Japan, or Friday night for viewers in the United States. You can find full Round 3 tee times for the tournament at the bottom of this post.

Notable groupings for Zozo Championship Round 3

As the most popular player in his home country, Hideki Matsuyama always has to deal with extra pressure when playing in Japan. But the nerves clearly haven’t gotten to the 2021 Masters champion at this week’s Zozo Championship.

One shot back after the opening round, Matsuyama fought through rain and wind in Round 2 to shoot a two-under 68 at Narashino Country Club and take the outright lead through 36 holes. Cameron Tringale is in solo second, trailing Matsuyama by one shot at seven under.
