Who is the CJ Cup Favourite?

CJ Cup History 

The competition has only been played for the last few years, with the first tournament taking place in 2017 at the Nine Bridges Golf Course in South Korea.

It’s been held at the same course for three years, with it finding a temporary home in Las Vegas this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Justin Thomas is the current champion and has won the tournament two out of three times, with Brooks Koepka winning by 4 strokes in 2018.

Our CJ Cup Predictions  

The bookmakers are seeing this tournament as somewhat of a four horse race, and given his form in the competition, Justin Thomas at 11/1 looks a pretty worthy punt and he’s certainly our pick of the field.

However, it’s a different course but it’s still a time of the year when he plays his best golf.

Dustin Johnson has been among the world’s best since the restart so isn’t worth ruling out, and at 10/1 the second favourite is still providing some pretty tempting odds.

McIlroy will be looking to improve his form ahead of the Masters and this will be a good testing ground. He could be worth an each way bet at 11/1, and if he does do well will be a good punt for the Green Jacket too.

As for outsiders, Sungjae Im and Tyler Duncan could the surprise packages of the tournament.
