The PGA Tour begins its Asian swing this week with the CJ Cup in Korea.

This will be the third time that The Club at Nine Bridges will play host to this event and the cream rose to the top on each of those previous two occasions with Brooks Koepka and Justin Thomas emerging with titles.

This will be a smaller field with just 78 golfers teeing it up in a no-cut event.

The Course

Nine Bridges is on the shorter side for a par 72, measuring 7,241 yards. The difficulty of the course varies depending on how windy it gets. Last year, Koepka was able to get to 21-under par. The year before, Thomas won in a playoff at 9-under.

If the wind picks up, it will be a grind this week. If not, 20-under may be the minimum score for the winner.

Scrambling seems to matter a little bit more than normal here due to some difficult rough and a lot of bunkers around the greens. Pat Perez and Cam Smith each own a pair of top-10 finishes here, and their short games are their biggest strengths.

The Favorites

It’s not a super deep field this week. Only Thomas (+650) and Koepka (+900) are shorter than +1500. Hideki Matsuyama (+1600) is the only other golfer below +2000.
