The PGA Tour continues its mini Asian swing this week in Jeju Island, South Korea for the second-ever playing of the CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges. Like the CIMB Classic, the field consists of just 78 players, each of them vying for the tour's biggest purse outside of the majors and WGCs of $9.5 million, $1,665,000 of which goes to the winner.

That winner a year ago in the inaugural playing of the event was Justin Thomas, who returns to to defend his title this year as the No. 3 golfer in the world. The only player ranked higher than him in South Korea this week is Brooks Koepka, who will be making his 2018-'19 PGA Tour debut. Koepka and Thomas will play alongside Sungjae Im on Thursday and Friday. Also making their debut and playing in the same group on Thursday and Friday is the trio of Jason Day, Hideki Matsuyama and Adam Scott.

TV Schedule

The Golf Channel will carry live coverage Wednesday through Saturday from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.
