PGA TOUR: The CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges
The Nine Bridges course hosts this event for only the second year in succession so we have minimal course form to assess. Last year scoring was affected by the breezes which blew so that is certainly something to be factored in this week.
OUTRIGHT: Hideki Matsuyama 0.5 pts E/W 14/1 (1/4 odds 5 places)
Matsuyama has put his injury and loss of form concerns well behind him and is on a strong run of form right now finishing the 2018 season with five top fifteen finishes in his last six outings. As such he is a justified second favourite this week.
OUTRIGHT: Sungjae Im 0.5 pts E/W 45/1 (1/5 odds 7 places)
Im hit the ground running two weeks ago as a rookie finishing tied fourth in his first event, The Safeway Open, since qualifying from the Web.com tour. Bang in form as he is he will be looking forward to securing his tour status by finishing prominently here on his home course.
OUTRIGHT: Si Woo Kim 0.5 pts E/W 66/1 (1/5 odds 7 places)
Kim finished a very respectable tied tenth last week in The CIMB Classic in Kuala Lumpur and that should be a nice warm up for this week. Back in his native Asia he ought to present a bigger threat than is shown in these odds.
