Viewer’s guide: 2019 CJ Cup at Nine Bridges tee times, TV schedule and purse

October 16, 2019
Brooks Koepka will try to defend his 2018 title at the 2019 CJ Cup.

The PGA Tour heads to the other side of the world this week for the 2019 CJ Cup at Nine Bridges in South Korea. You can find a full viewer’s guide for the CJ Cup below, with tee times, purse info, and everything else you need to know before the tournament begins.

Most eyes will be on two players this week in South Korea. First, the defending champion Brooks Koepka, who also happens to be the No. 1 player on the planet. Koepka got his terrific 2018-19 season off to a hot start at Nine Bridges with a four-stroke win. He’ll look to do the same this season starting Wednesday night at 8:30 p.m. ET alongside Hideki Matsuyama and Si Woo Kim.

The other player drawing big crowds will be Kevin Na. Na was born in South Korea before growing up in the U.S. He’s fresh off his fourth PGA Tour victory at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

But a media storm in South Korea over a controversy involving Na and a former girlfriend will command a lot of attention at the tournament. Na will begin his first round at 8:40 p.m. ET Wednesday night.

Below you can find everything you need to know to follow the tournament.
