There has been at least one Japanese player on the PGA Tour in every season since 1993. Five Japanese players have won PGA Tour events with Hideki Matsuyama leading the way with five wins. “I’m looking forward to competing in the ZOZO Championship.” Matsuyama said to the media, “As it will be the first official PGA TOUR event in Japan, I can see the tournament playing an important role towards the growth and development of golf in our country.”
The 2019 ZOZO Championship will also feature Rory McIlroy who is looking forward to playing in Japan. "It is wonderful we have the opportunity to compete in Japan this year and I'm truly excited to be heading to the tournament." McIlroy said in a press release. "I know golf fans in Japan are very supportive and knowledgeable of the game and it'll be really cool and fun for the PGA Tour players to perform in front of them for the first time. In my career, I've won all around the world and it'll be an achievement if I can register my first title in Japan."
