Following his breakthrough 2020/21 season where he clinched his first two Tour titles at the KBC Sansan Augusta and ANA Open, Vincent did not make as many trips to Japan last year due to his commitment to multiple circuits.
Still, whenever he was back in action, Vincent would ensure his presence was felt. Out of the seven Tour tournaments he played, he finished no worse than 18th on six occasions.
Vincent's highlight last season was winning the Gateway to The Open Mizuno Open after edging Australia's Anthony Quayle in the playoff.
The feat also helped him punch his ticket to The Open for the first time.

Just like Vincent, Norris was another outstanding performer in the 2020/21 season but made fewer starts on Tour last year.
Still, he proved his worth by notching two top-10 finishes at the Token Homemate Cup and ISPS HANDA Championship.
It wasn't too long since Norris clinched his landmark victory at the Japan Open for one of his two titles in 2021, so expect Norris to reignite his ambition and hunt for more when he comes back this season.

2022 best result: ASO IIZUKA Challenged Golf Tournament - Tied second
2022 money list position: 16 (20 appearances)
A JGTO loyalist and of the most consistent players on Tour, Kennedy showed that he still has plenty of gas left in his tank by contending strongly on several occasions last year.
Missing only one cut in the entire season, Kennedy also impressed with five top-five results, with the best performance being tying for second at the ASO IIZUKA Challenge Golf Tournament.
If Kennedy keeps performing the way he did last year, it's only a matter of time before returns to the winning trail after last triumphed at the Shigeo Nagashima Invitational Sega Sammy Cup in 2018.

Quayle enjoyed his best season yet on Tour last year and he will be eager to build on it.
He agonisingly missed out on his breakthrough victory at the Gateway to The Open Mizuno Open, squandering his four-shot penultimate stage lead before being pipped by Scott Vincent to the win through playoff.
However, Quayle made the most of his ticket to The Open by finishing a creditable tied-15th.
