Rory McIlroy says "This is the complete opposite of last week (Nine Bridges). Tight and Tree-Lined."

Catch Me ifyoucan • October 19, 2019 6:10 AM BST...THOMAS is your ‘form horse’ – crushes it in Asia !

The 78 man field is comprised of 60 golfers from last year's FedEx Cup standings, 10 from the Japan Golf Tour, and 8 Zozo (sponsor) invites... Zozotown is Japan's largest online fashion retailer. The ex-CEO Maezawa may become the first commercial passenger going to the Moon with Elon Musk and SpaceX (if they ever get there).

Mostly cloudy with a bit of wind about 10 to 20mph. Japan's typhoon Hagibis is well gone, but the par 70 Championship Course is still bit soft.
There are 3 par five's & five par 3's, with water on 3 holes at Accordia Golf Narashino CC.

Again, not a great viewing time in Europe - GMT+8, so 03:00am Wednesday night hit off.

Report Catch Me ifyoucan October 23, 2019 9:37 PM BST
All 18 holes at Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club have two greens, a common practice in Japan...one green is for cooler weather months and one green is for warmer weather months. The long par-4 fourth will be the only hole that uses both greens this week.
With roughly 2,500 courses sprinkled throughout the country, Japan sits on roughly the same latitude as Georgia in the US and experiences similar weather patterns. Generally speaking and depending on the region, summers tend to be hot and humid while winters are short and cold.
Summer greens are typically seeded with either bermuda or zyosia grass, as this strain responds particularly well to heat. Winter greens are often comprised of bent grass, which thrives in cooler temperatures. The resulting two-green system allows golfers to play quality conditioned greens year-round despite the extreme differences in temperature season to season.
Because of this, the Greenkeeper has a larger workload as well as higher operating costs. Additionally, an extra green can also mean extra green-side bunkers and other aspects of upkeep beyond the green itself. This system, which for the most part is unique to Japan, was developed in the early part of the 20th century, well before the development of several turf-specific hybrid grasses. Modern science has helped develop several unique strains, such as A-4 bent grass, that respond well year-round.
With the advent of these new strains, several prominent courses throughout Japan are beginning the process of converting to a one-green system, seeded with hybrid strains to withstand the yearly changes climates and temperatures.

Typhoon Bualoi combines with a low–pressure system moving across Japan to produce heavy rainfall and gusty winds on Friday.
Up to 4 inches of rain is possible. Drier weather will return Saturday before another system brings the chance for showers on Sunday.

Those TV guys know a bit more abut their job than you. They show what makes them money. If showing a single shot for years brought them more money than any other live event during all those years, they'll opt for that single shot. That's the whole point of having the TV channel. Its not a charity.

that should see Lowry finish just outside the top-10 in his first 2019/20 PGA Tour counting event when the event was set to conclude early Monday morning (Japan time) and with Tiger Woods just seven holes away from joining legendary Sam Snead in capturing 82 PGA Tour victories.
