After the world's top golfers returned en masse to the Tour last week, PGA betting keeps that momentum — but adds an international flavor — by teeing off at this weekend's Zozo Championship.
After the inaugural Zozo Championship was held in Japan in 2019, last year's event was moved to U.S. soil due to COVID protocols, but PGA Tour odds return to Narashino Country Club for the 2021 event.
Here are the latest live odds to win the Zozo Championship.

How to bet on PGA Tour odds
The most popular way to bet on golf is by simply picking the winner, which is also referred to as outright. There are plenty of other ways to wager, however. Some of the more popular markets include head-to-head betting, where sportsbooks pair up two golfers and you simply choose who you think will have the lower score over the course of the weekend or for one round only.
There are also 3-way betting markets (choose the best golfer among three choices) and group betting (choose the best golfer amongst a group of players).
Other ways to wager include Top-5/Top-10/Top-20 finish, top golfer by nationality, to make the cut/to not make the cut, and the leader after each round. Then, of course, there's the popular prop bet of whether or not there will be a hole in one at the tournament.
