2017 CJ Cup at Nine Bridges

THE COURSE

The Club at Nine Bridges – The Club at Nine Bridges, in scenic Jeju, South Korea, does not offer much info for the fantasy player looking for the usual amount of course research. (There is also no player history here, but the regionally raised swine do make the best sam gyup sal you’ll ever experience).

What we do know is that the 7,196-yard, par 72 course is relatively short by PGA standards and has fairly large landing areas. This means you can expect some low numbers this week. Stats to eye closely will be Strokes Gained Approach, Par 5 Scoring, and Birdie or Better.

2017 CIMB Classic

 

THE COURSE

The TPC Kuala Lumpur West Course is a relatively short par 72 with quite a few wide fairways that bombers enjoy. The Malaysian greens get a lot of rain and are thus often soft and receptive to dart throwers. So, overall course conditions will be suited to scoring with a total low probably in the high teens or low twenties. Player stats to favor will be DA, GIR, and Putts per GIR.

THE COURSE

Silverado Resort & Spa (North Tournament Course) – Redesigned a few years ago by Johnnie “McEgo Talky-Talk” Miller, the Silverado North Course is intended to be both enjoyable for well-to-do tourists as well as provide a pro tournament layout. During the most recent redesign, the course was lengthened by 250 yards and the fairways were widened considerably. At 7171 yards, the par 72 course  doesn’t pose any real threats and players will be able to go low (Scott Piercy holds the course record at 62). Past Champions have fared well in the following stat categories: Strokes Gained Approach, Strokes Gained Putting, and Birdie Average.
