CJ Cup

The PGA Tour has uprooted from the United States and has gone on tour in Asia, with the first stop at JeJu Island in South Korea for the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges. This is the third edition of this event with the past winners being Justin Thomas and Brooks Koepka (who are both in the field this week).

The course is an undulating wide fairway course which has severe bunkering around the greens and the majority of the holes are dog-legged. It is a par 72 @ 7,241 yards. The previous two editions saw high winds in 2017 (winning score was -9) and calm conditions in 2018 (winning score was -21). Currently the forecast is for low winds, so I am expecting another Birdie fest amongst the field. Speaking of the field, we only have 78 golfers at this event and alas this is a none cut event. All golfers will play 4 rounds unless a golfer withdraws during the event. Essentially you want to build lineups with the winner in your team. 

Being in South Korea and for the next few weeks, contests will lock earlier on a Thursday than usual, so you will need to be organised before lock. Lock this week is 1000 AEDT (1st group is 0800 JeJu time).

For the Fantasy Sites, DraftKings have posted a $200,000 Best Ball with $50,000 to 1st place. For Draftstars we have a $6,000 contest for a $15 entry.

Draftstars contest

Last week suggested lineups missed out in the cash on Draftstars with 4 out 6 making the weekend before watching Russel Henley go on a large Bogey run. However, it was 2 in a row on DraftKings with Mark Hubbard coming T2 and Harris English in T4 for a nice cash.

This week i'm going to list golfers who I think that are on the radar and golfers who I can ignore. Let’s called these lists the 'Lights Out' and the 'Shanks'.

Lights Out - Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas, Tommy Fleetwood, Viktor Hovland, Sungjae Im, Danny Willett, Sergio Garcia, Tyrell Hatton, Jazz Janewattananond, Luke List, Sang-Hyun Park, Kiradech Aphibarnrat.

Shanks - Jordan Speith, Jason Day, Matthew Wolff, Kevin Na, Branden Grace, Lucas Glover, Wyndham Clark, Phil Mickleson, Michael Kim, Chase Koepka.
