CJ Cup Day 1 Results & Highlights for the PGA Tour

CJ CUP Day 1 – The CJ Cup is now underway, and bookies are taking the odds seriously for the challenging course at Nine Bridges. According to the experts, the Korean leg of the PGA Tour will be a high-risk, high-reward course with tricky holes. This means that players will need to focus on getting their shots perfectly lined up.  It’s known as a big hitter’s course.

However, this year’s line-up is not making things easy. Justin Thomas and Brooks Koepka are expected to do well, but Sunjae Im is definitely on a warpath. As last year’s Rookie of the year, he has a lot to prove. While Thomas did win the CJ Cup in 2017, his chances are pretty slim this time around. Then again, he could prove that he has what it takes to win the course and get the prize.
