Notable groupings for Zozo Championship Round 1

Rickie Fowler is hungry for his sixth PGA Tour win. After coming up just short from ending his yearslong drought last week at the CJ Cup, Fowler traveled halfway across the world to continue the hunt at the Zozo Championship in Japan.

Fowler will tee off for the opening round at Narashino Country Club at 8:14 p.m. ET on Wednesday night. He’ll play the first round alongside Ryan Palmer and Harry Higgs. But plenty of other star players are in the field.
