Odds to Win the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges

Kyle Stanley of the United States plays his second shot on the 3rd hole during the second round of the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges on October 20, 2017 in Jeju, South Korea.

South Korea is the setting for this week’s PGA Tour action, as the tour continues the second leg of its Asia swing in Jeju Island for the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges. When it comes to odds on which man has the best chance of prevailing, defending champion Justin Thomas leads the pack.

Nine Bridges is the only Korean course to be ranked in the world’s top 100.

Thomas is the +550 fave at Bovada, with Brooks Koepka (+800), Jason Day (+1200), Hideki Matsuyama (+1400), Marc Leishman (+1400), Paul Casey (+2000), Billy Horschel (+2500), Xander Schauffele (+2500), Adam Scott (+2800) and Cameron Smith (+2800) rounding out the top 10.

The CJ Cup at Nine Bridges was played for the first time a year ago, with Thomas emerging triumphant for his third Asian crown. The American opened with a 63 but still needed two playoff holes to outlast Leishman. It was an unusual week for Thomas, as he didn’t register a score under 70 in any of the last three rounds after the aforementioned 63 on Thursday. The win was his seventh career victory.

Plenty of talent on the way to South Korea

The field of 78 players features four men who placed among last year’s FedExCup top 10, and 13 entrants who teed it up at the Tour Championship in September. As for the format, the top 60 players from last season’s final FedExCup standings are entered, as well as the winners of the KPGA Championship and Genesis Championship on the Korean Tour, the top three available players from the Korean Tour order of merit, the best golfer from the Asian Tour order of merit, the top Korean player from the Asian Tour, the top three Korean players from the Official World Golf Rankings as well as eight sponsor exemptions.

Koepka sets his sights on Nine Bridges seeking something he’s had an issue accomplishing – winning a non-major tournament. Three of Koepka’s four career PGA Tour wins have been majors, including this year’s U.S. Open and PGA Championship as well as the 2017 U.S. Open. The event has never had an Asian winner – Matsuyama serves as the most likely candidate to finish the job after finishing no worse than 15th in all four FedExCup playoff events.

The course, a 7,196-yard par 72, is the only Korean golf course ranked among the world’s top 100. Nine Bridges opened in 2001 and one year later became one of the first tracks to become a regular on the LPGA schedule. Nine Bridges is also the host of the biannual World Club Championship. Thomas owns both the 18-hole (63) and 72-hole (279) records after his win last year.
