The PGA Tour heads to Asia for a three-tournament swing, which begins this week in South Korea at The CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges. The tour then heads to Japan for the inaugural ZOZO Championship, followed by the WGC-HSBC Champions in China.

Brooks Koepka is the defending champion at the CJ Cup, and was in the field until he was forced to withdraw when he reaggrevated a knee injury during the second round. Koepka shot a seven-under 29 on the front nine during the final round in 2018 en route to winning the title. The victory pushed Koepka to No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking for the first time in his career. Koepka shot the 72-hole scoring record when he finished with a 21-under 267, four strokes better than runner-up Gary Woodland.
