The PGA Tour will stage an event in Japan this week after a one-year absence, with the 2021 Zozo Championship set to tee off Thursday at Narashino Country Club. Tiger Woods got his most recent PGA Tour victory at the inaugural event in 2019 before it was moved to California amid the pandemic last season. Two-time major champion Collin Morikawa and Tokyo 2020 gold medalist Xander Schauffele are the 13-2 co-favorites in the latest 2021 Zozo Championship golf odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Local hero Hideki Matsuyama is the No. 3 choice at 14-1, and Will Zalatoris (18-1) and Rickie Fowler (25-1) also are expected to contend.

Before you lock in any of your Fantasy golf rankings or bet the 2021 Zozo Championship, you MUST see what fantasy expert Riley Gates has to say.

Gates is a writer for 247Sports and has covered a range of sports for nearly five years. He has followed golf closely for much longer and has a profound knowledge of the sport. He also knows what it takes to win, on the course and in fantasy sports.    

Now, Gates has ranked the top 20 golfers for the 2021 Zozo Championship. We can tell you he is looking for another big week from Morikawa! The reigning British Open champ blitzed the Summit Club course last week at the CJ Cup, shooting a 10-under 62 in the final round to finish as runner-up. Gates doesn't like to rely on favorites, but Morikawa is too good to pass up this week.            

On the other hand, Gates is fading Joaquin Niemann, who is among the favorites at 25-1. He doesn't have the track record to merit that number, Gates says. The 22-year-old star from Chile has finished 40th and 45th in his first two events this season. He had three runner-up finishes last season, but he is ice-cold, and the golf expert doesn't rank him in his top 10 options for your Fantasy golf picks!

Instead, the fantasy expert has a player in his top 10 who is a MASSIVE long-shot of well over 60-1!  This veteran has a couple of tour victories and is a strong putter, and on the unfamiliar greens that could be the difference. He could pull off a STUNNING result this week and be the difference in your Fantasy golf picks! You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is and check out Gates' top picks before you bet the 2021 Zozo Championship or enter any Fantasy golf picks.
