    October 15, 2019 | Sports Sungjae Im PGA Tour 2019

    Asia will be the 2019-20 PGA Tour Season’s destination this week. We’re talking about the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges Tournament, which will be played in Jeju Island in South Korea.

    The CJ Cup is a relatively young PGA event, but that’s not stopping some of the big boys from flying over to the Eastern Hemisphere for a chance to get the largest cut of the total purse amounting to $9.75 million. That’s more than the total payout in each of the previous five tournaments by over $2 million. In this piece, Nitrogen Sports Blog will list down the PGA Tour payout this 2019 for the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges once all details are available. We’ll also be putting up the purse breakdown of last year’s edition of the tournament.

    There will be 78 players who are all set to tee off at Jeju Island. Given the location, there are plenty of Koreans who have their names entered in the competition.

    Among them is Sungjae Im, who won the PGA Tour Rookie of the Year honors. Im already has a top-five finish this season, as he was a runner-up at the Sanderson Farms Championship last month, though, he faltered at the succeeding Safeway Open, where he settled with a T49.

    The top-two big hitters on the field are undoubtedly Brooks Koepka and Justin Thomas. Koepka is back to defend the title he won a year ago, while Thomas is out to reclaim the championship. Thomas was the tournament’s first-ever champion, winning it all in 2017, along with the top prize of $1.665 million. Koepka’s cut in 2018 was $1.71 million.

    Below is a breakdown of the total payout in 2018. Again, we’ll update the table once we know the PGA Tour payout figures this 2019 for the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges.
