THE CJ CUP @ SUMMIT

Field – 78 entrants
Purse – $9.75M

The Preview

Sungjae Im was a par-breaking machine during the final round of the Shriners Children’s Open, as he birdied nine of his first 13 holes en route to a four-shot victory over Matthew Wolff at 24-under-par on Sunday. The second leg of the PGA Tour’s two-week Las Vegas Swing could summon a similar birdie fest, as the fully private Summit Club features a few drivable par-4s and multiple reachable par-5s as it hosts some of the best players in the world at the CJ Cup. Scenic views of the Strip and surrounding mountains accompany favorable weather conditions for scoring in the desert. Everyone in this limited 78-man field is guaranteed four rounds with the absence of a 36-hole cut, reinforcing the importance of compiling tweeters on the scorecard.
