Taking place from October 19th to 22nd, 2017 in Jeju island, CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges 2017 is the first official event of PGA Tour held in Korea. Despite the attending of only 78 golfers, there are 8 players from the world top 25, and the most featured names are: Jason Day, Paul Casey, Marc Leishman, Pat Perez and Justin Thomas.
After going through 4 intensive rounds of competition, the 2 best golfers – Marc Leishman and Justin Thomas joined the play-off round at hole-18, even though they had had differences in scores. In the final round, both of them got troubles with miss tracking drive shots. In the effort to find Green, Leishman trapped in a water hazard and struggled there for a while. Justin took this chance calmly, finish the hole with a birdie and win in the end.
With the CJ CUP 2017 Championship, Justin Thomas – “Player of the Year 2017” once again confirmed that he was at his peak of performance and no sign of slowing down! This is the first championship in the 2018 season and the 7th PGA Tour Championship in the career of this young and talented golfer!
Once again, congratulate the new champion of CJ CUP @ Nine Bridges 2017 – Justin Thomas, and wait for the next brilliant results of him in the future!
