PGA TOUR 2021, CJ Cup @ Summit, The Summit Club, Las Vegas: 14-17 October
Cam Smith is back for the CJ Cup
Cameron Smith is back and firing again after a five week break to spend time with his dad, who flew over to visit in early September. See Cam's Gone Fishing.
The CJ Cup was launched in 2017 at the Nine Bridges Golf Club, Jeju Island, South Korea. Marc Leishman was in the final playoff that year, against Justin Thomas who won the tournament. The CJ Cup continued to be held there for the next two seasons before Covid pandemic travel restrictions resulted in a move to Shadow Creek near Las Vegas. In 2021 the CJ Cup is again in wider Las Vegas, this time at The Summit Club in Summerlin.
From the PGA TOUR, The First Look, Adam Stanley:
There will be plenty of star power this week as THE CJ CUP @ SUMMIT will welcome a handful of Ryder Cup stars to the limited field.
The Summit Club – another of Las Vegas’ top-tier tracks – will host after last year’s event at Shadow Creek.
Jason Kokrak, who captured his first TOUR title in nine years in 2020, then went on to win again later last season, returns to defend.
