Next up on the PGA schedule is the famous CJ Cup, which is normally played in South Korea. Of course with the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, the event will be played at Shadow Creek this year. This makes for back-to-back events in Las Vegas, as last week’s Shriners Open took place at TPC Summerlin. With the Shriners in the book, more of the popular golfers will likely be in the field for the CJ Cup, especially since it is stateside this year with quite the purse of nearly $10M. With the tournament taking place in Las Vegas, it makes for an added motivation for sports betting. Golf bettors, be ready as the 2020 CJ Cup will be a fun one from a wagering perspective. Here is a look at this week’s odds, preview, top sportsbooks and more.

The 2020 CJ Cup Course Preview – Shadow Creek

Many may remember Shadow Creek being the home of Tiger vs. Phil in “The Match” in 2018, but Shadow Creek is one of the most prestigious golf courses on the west coast. Located in Las Vegas, Nevada, it is known to be a place for celebrities, and is owned by MGM Resorts International. The course was designed by Tom Fazio, and has been open for 30 years, established in 1990. It is the new home of the CJ Cup, after the coronavirus pandemic forced the move from South Korea. Here are some features of the course:

  • Host of The Match between Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods.
  • Plays over 7,500 Yards.
  • Rumored to cost over $500 for a round to the public, but is a private course.
