Woods wrote on Twitter: “I’m excited to play in the inaugural ZOZO Championship in October and return to Japan, one of my favourite countries. It’s going to be a fun fall (autumn).”

The 43-year-old made his last appearance in Japan in 2006 when he lost a play-off to Padraig Harrington in the Dunlop Phoenix, having won the title the previous two years.
