The PGA Tour heads to Asia for a three-tournament swing, which begins this week in South Korea at The CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges. The tour then heads to Japan for the inaugural ZOZO Championship, followed by the WGC-HSBC Champions in China.
Brooks Koepka is the defending champion at the CJ Cup, and was in the field until he was forced to withdraw when he reaggrevated a knee injury during the second round. Koepka shot a seven-under 29 on the front nine during the final round in 2018 en route to winning the title. The victory pushed Koepka to No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking for the first time in his career. Koepka shot the 72-hole scoring record when he finished with a 21-under 267, four strokes better than runner-up Gary Woodland.
A limited-field, 78-player event will be played at Jeju Island for a purse of $9.75 million, the winner earning $1.755 million. Sixteen golfers from South Korea are in the field, including PGA Tour Rookie of the Year Sungjae Im.
This will be Phil Mickelson's first CJ Cup, as well as Jordan Spieth's 2019-'20 season debut.
Golf Channel will carry live coverage on Wednesday through Saturday from 10 p.m.-2 a.m. EDT.
