Scott Piercy Shoots 65 to Lead CJ Cup, with Brooks Koepka One Back

JEJU ISLAND, South Korea — Brooks Koepka, recently named the PGA Tour player of the year, gave himself the perfect opportunity to become the No. 1 player in the world when he shot a 7-under par 65 to move to within one shot of the lead in the CJ Cup on Friday.

At the Nine Bridges course, the three-time major champion made an eagle on his closing hole to finish on 8-under par 136 after two rounds, just one stroke behind Scott Piercy, who was bogey-free in matching Koepka's 65.

With the wind subsiding and the course playing much easier than on the opening day when the scoring average was 73.26, 44 players — more than half the field of 78 — had under-par rounds.

Ready for some overseas golf? The PGA TOUR’s Asian Swing begins with this week’s CIMB Classic in Malaysia, followed by tournaments in South Korea and China. Unique venues and cultural experiences await (as do late-night viewing opportunities on the Golf Channel!).


Three Players to Ponder

1 Justin Thomas
Three of his nine career PGA TOUR wins have come on the Asian Swing. That’s only one less than his win total in the continental U.S.

2 Pat Perez
Ryan Moore in 2013-14. JT in 2015-16. To continue the trend of successful defenses, Perez will have to win on a course with significant changes.

3 Billy Horschel
Was on fire during the FedExCup Playoffs. Now hoping to carry that momentum into the new season.

Justin Thomas Wins Back-to-Back Money Titles, First Since Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods finished off the PGA Tour season by tapping in for par to win the Tour Championship, a moment that ended any doubts that he could win again after four surgeries on his lower back. And then the moment was gone.

Hours later, Woods and 17 other players were headed to France for the all-consuming Ryder Cup. And with barely enough time to digest Europe winning and Patrick Reed pouting, the PGA Tour started up a new season in California.

At the 2018 TOUR Championship, Tiger Woods finishes one of the greatest comebacks in sporting history with his 80th PGA TOUR victory and first in 5 years.

The TOUR Championship, the final of the four events in the FedExCup Playoffs, is contested at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, GA. In 2017, Justin Thomas capped off an incredible season, one that included five victories -- including his first major at the PGA Championship -- and a career-best 59 at the Sony Open in Hawaii, with the FedExCup. He finished second at East Lake and outlasted his pal Jordan Spieth for the top prize.
