THE CJ CUP will feature 13 of the top 20 players in the world and more than 30 of the top 50 in what will be the first big event of the fall since the Ryder Cup.

THE CJ CUP started as a tournament based in South Korea on Jeju Island. Justin Thomas won it in 2017 and ’19 and Brooks Koepka in ’18. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was moved to Shadow Creek in Las Vegas, where Jason Kokrak took home the title in 2020.

The tournament was supposed to move back to Korea in 2021, but organizers opted to keep it stateside again this year. Next week, the TOUR will head to Japan for the ZOZO Championship.

Ryder Cup winners Dustin Johnson, Collin Morikawa, Xander Schauffele, Justin Thomas, Tony Finau and Jordan Spieth will make their first competitive appearances since the United States’ victory at Whistling Straits, while Brooks Koepka and Harris English will be in action after playing in the Shriners Children’s Open last week, also held in Las Vegas at TPC Summerlin.

Rory McIlroy will also make his first appearance since Whistling Straits. He’ll be joined by fellow European Viktor Hovland, who also played at the Shriners.

There are a few elite players missing from the field, including Jon Rahm and Bryson DeChambeau, and Patrick Cantlay.

THE CJ CUP is a no-cut tournament with 70 players in the field. And what kind of quality are we looking at in this field? The likes of Matthew Wolff, Matt Fitzpatrick and Bubba Watson are among the alternates.

Sungjae Im is 15th on the odds board at DraftKings at 30-1 after he won the Shriners Children’s Open last week, four shots ahead of Wolff.

The most startling number on the board is probably Patrick Reed, who opened at 65-1, in the company of Talor Gooch, Harold Varner, Aaron Wise and Si Woo Kim.

This field may have some unfamiliar names at the bottom, since several spots are reserved for the players from the Korean Tour.

Here’s who makes up the CJ CUP field:

  • Top 60 from last year’s FedEx Cup standings
  • Winners of the KPGA Championship and Genesis Championship (Korean Tour)
  • Top 3 players from the Korean Tour
  • Top player from the Asian Tour
  • Top Korean player from the Asian Tour
  • Next three ranked Korean players from the Official World Golf Ranking
  • 8 sponsors exemptions, including a Korean amateur qualifier
