The CJ Cup at Nine Bridges moving from Korea to Las Vegas

The CJ Cup at Nine Bridges, the PGA Tour event held on Jeju Island, Korea, since 2017, will have a new venue in 2020.

The Tour announced on Monday evening that the tournament will be played at Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas, Oct. 15-18, the week after the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas. Both tournaments are part of the Tour’s 2020-21 schedule.

Along with the move comes a new name: The CJ Cup at Shadow Creek.

Justin Thomas won the first CJ Cup in 2017, as well as in 2019. Brooks Koepka won it in 2018.

Shadow Creek hosted The Match in 2019 between Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods.

Ethan Kim, Sports Marketing Director of CJ Group, said in a statement released by the Tour: “We are delighted to bring The CJ Cup to the U.S. and to the renowned Shadow Creek. It is unfortunate we will not be able to showcase the PGA Tour and the best players in the world on Jeju Island this year, but we look forward to having this tournament again in Korea in 2021.”

The tournament will once again have a 78-man field.

“It’s unfortunate that we won’t be able to travel to Korea for this year’s event,” Thomas said in a statement. “But it is fantastic that we will still be able to shine a light on CJ Group through the tournament at a venue like Shadow Creek.”
