Back-to-back tournaments in Las Vegas will kick off after a win for South Korea's budding star, Sungjae Im. At just 23 years old, he looks like he could be one of the next great golfers and trendy betting picks to watch this season. This week we have CJ Cup betting picks and DFS advice from Beer Life Sports' Dean McHugh. Furthermore, we are tagging on the experts at Golf Digest to give us CJ Cup analysis, prop bets, and more!
The PGA stays in Las Vegas for the CJ Cup (par 72, 7,431 yards, bentgrass greens) and Dean McHugh has the right plays to stack some cash this weekend.
With a prize pool of $9.75 million compared to $7 million last week, it's no surprise that a field of 78 players is eager to compete for this early-season jackpot. This was always going to be a complex problem because 24 of the top 30 players in the world go to post, and it's made even more difficult because The Summit is a rookie to the PGA Tour. Because it is far above the world's gambling capital, we know it plays shorter than its 7431-yard length. The view of the famous Las Vegas Strip is uninterrupted from the sixth tee.
hree editions, but owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was forced to relocate to Las Vegas in 2020. In 2021, the tournament will return to Las Vegas, but it will be held at Summit Club, a brand new PGA TOUR course.
The CJ Cup has been relocated from Nine Bridges, South Korea, to Las Vegas, Nevada, for the second year in a row owing to COVID fears. As a result, the Summit Club will take over hosting duties for this edition. The competition was held in the well-known Shadow Creek last year. Although the CJ Cup is only four years old, it already has two of the game's biggest names as champions, with Justin Thomas (2017 and 2019) sandwiched between four-time major winner Brooks Koepka (2018). Jason Kokrak won last year's event at Shadow Creek.
As the season slowly starts to gather momentum, the PGA Tour stays in Las Vegas this week. Following a superb event at TPC Summerlin, an event that culminated in victory for South Korea’s ever-impressive Sungjae Im, it’s onto the Summit Club, where the CJ Cup will be hosted for the first time.

Next up on the PGA calendar is the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Since 1992 TPC Summerlin (par 71, 7,255 yards, bentgrass greens) in Las Vegas has hosted this tournament. It is usually a birdie fest and with the weather looking good this year should be more of the same. Dean McHugh and Jack Hartman have more sharp plays to build the bankroll this weekend.
The nearly-men of the Ryder Cup selection process has dominated the early parts of the 2017 PGA Tour season, with Max Homa and Sam Burns demonstrating the depth of skill in the United States in stark terms. Brooks Koepka and Scottie Scheffler are the first members of Steve Stricker's team to return to the day job at the Shriners Children's Open, less than a fortnight after their historic triumph over Europe.
