CJ Cup Course: Nine bridges par 72, 7,241 yards

Key Features: Large, slow and undulating bentgrass greens (prepped around 10'), deep bunkering, water hazards. Wind strength will be key

Premium on Greens in regulation, ball control and flight in wind, total birdies

Course correlation: Undulations, wind and some aesthetical similarities reminds me in ways of Trinity Forest where (#simmering) Sung Kang won in Texas earlier in the year (Byron Nelson)

Notes: scoring in 2018 was twice as low as the inaugural edition. This is due to the sweeping winds across the island, and it will pay to monitor the forecast closely on Jeju Island this week

The CJ Cup is a 78 man no cut event.

Cameron smith is the man I like towards the front of the market and I think there's juice in the Garcia price aswell but I love the value prices on 2 Asians who will enjoy the home conditions on Jeju Island, especially in the sub markets.

Jazzy Jane 100/1 ew leads the Asian tour order of merit, is in flying form over the last year and ticks all the key stat boxes here. He was 2nd in total birdies on the Asian Tour last year and ranks 1st in that stat in 2019. He was 8th in greens in reg last season and has currently hit 75% of greens in 2019. Jazz is renowned for his ball striking witht the irons. He's currently around 70s on the #FRLdar and 8s top 10.

Sung Kang 125/1 ew is also touching triple figs on the FRL market and double in the top 10. Kang is progressing nicely into form and has carded 2 round of 65 and a 63 in his last few events. He won at Trinity Forest earlier in the year on the PGA Tour - a track that you can see above - I think correlates well with Nine bridges. He's a streaky putter who can go low, ranking 12.5 in the putting from 15-25 foot radius last season.
