The beauty of Open Championship golf and links golf for that matter is that it demands a variety of shots scarcely seen across the weekly haunts of the PGA and European Tours. Here's two great examples
Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Shane Lowry and their now 74 other Zoco Championship colleagues will tee-up Saturday in the weather-affected event without the support of spectators.
This comes after the PGA Tour advised that the host Accordia Golf Narashino course in Chiba to the east of Toyko, was ruled unsafe for the amount of ‘sold out’ spectator traffic expected on Saturday.

The PGA Tour released a statement late Friday here in Japan advising of the following:
  • Due to the amount of rain which Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club received on Friday, Round 2 of the ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP is now scheduled to run between 9:30-11:30 am, local time Saturday. More than six inches of rain was recorded at the venue on Friday.
  • Due to safety concerns, PGA TOUR officials have announced the course will unfortunately be closed to all spectators and ticket holders on Saturday as the well-being of our fans is paramount. Information on tickets will be made available on the tournament website, https://zozochampionship.com
  • Per regulations, PGA TOUR officials have determined the event will conclude on Monday, October 28, in order to complete 72 holes.
  • At this time, Sunday’s play will be open to spectators who hold Sunday tickets. Spectator and ticket information for Monday will be announced in due course.
