INZAI CITY, Japan (AP) — Organizers on Friday postponed the second round of the Zozo Championship in Japan due to heavy rain.

Tiger Woods was tied with Gary Woodland after both players shot 64 in the opening round of the PGA Tour's first event in Japan on Thursday.

"Due to heavy rain in the area, the second round has been postponed for the day and will resume on Saturday," the PGA Tour said in a statement, adding that tee times for the second round will run from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. local time on Saturday.

Woods is making his first start in his 23rd season on the PGA Tour, needing one victory to reach 82 wins and tie the career record held by Sam Snead.

The Zozo tournament is part of three tournaments that make up the PGA Tour's Asia Swing, including the CJ Cup in South Korea won last week by Justin Thomas and the HSBC Champions in Shanghai next week.
