Summary

Players to Watch

Returning to Familiarity - Rory Mcllroy

Rory’s ascendancy back to the top two in the world has been nothing short of special.

Now coming back to a tournament, he has just recently won, will give him a ton of confidence to go out there and get the job done.

The putting side and green are both huge positives for Rory to take into this weekend and he knows how to navigate this course to the best of his abilities.

The field looks to be stacked this year, even more so than last, so there will definitely be competition on his hands.

However, Rory will be one of the, if not the favourite for the CJ Cup this weekend.

Look for the U.K. veteran to make a strong case for #1 starting on Thursday all the way up until Sunday.

One of his favourite courses signals a dominant showing and a throwback to old Rory, coming right up.

South Korea is Back in It - Sungjae Im

The CJ Cup has a reserved set of spots for South Korean golfers and there is a plethora of talent heading to the tournament this time around.

None of them, however, top the light that Sungjae Im has brought to the tour in recent times.

Im’s game is one of many tricks, and he has a great swing to boot on any green.

His variety has landed him in some great moments this season and he looks to continue with his rise to the top with a great result here in South Carolina.

Look for Sungjae to put pressure on whoever is at the top or near him, possibly cracking the top three and possibly win it all himself!

Multiple Trophies in Sight - Matt Fitzpatrick

Matt Fitzpatrick catalyzed his star power and popularity this season greatly after a set of awesome results and unexpected wins.

The English golfer is still young for golf years but finds himself ranked second on the European tour.

His game is huge for his age, and he is just getting started.

Compared to most, he remains calm under pressure and never lets his mind get the best of him.

He clearly has the set of skills to go far in the PGA Tour and it will be interesting to see whether he can out-perform his fellow Englishman, Rory Mcllroy this weekend.
