In the fifth staging of the CJ Cup, the event takes place for the second year in Las Vegas. After visiting Shadow Creek last year, this year the limited field event heads to the Summit Club. There are 78 spots available in the field, in what is a pretty stacked entry list with 36 of the world top 50 scheduled to tee it up with Jason Kokrak coming into the event as defending champion after picking up his long awaited first win last year. Vegas resident and club member, Collin Morikawa must be among the favourites heading in.

Collin odds is 20/1. Considering that this is his home course where he practices, I think it is a pick. Many players like Sungjae Im has not seen this course.

I’ve played it a number of times.  Great golf course and great facility but unless the wind blows, it will be a major birdie fest.  

70s and sunny is the forecast with 10 mph wind max. I think the winning score will be close to -20. Seems like a dessert shootout to me. The courses are just too easy for these guys. In 2020-21 season 30 of the PGA Tour events had a winning score of -15 or lower. Unless they play Kiawah Island every week I don't think that trend will stop

I'm thinking cheesecake vs. creme brule down the last 9 holes.  Cupcake will be the dark horse pick.

You win the internet for the day, m'aam.

Definitely one of the most unreal golf experiences I ever had, and I don't even remember the course much.  Sure, it's Fazio, and it's plush, but it is the amenities that are so "Vegas"; you just don't find those kinds of perks anywhere.  And just a little too much tequila...

 

It's not as easy as TPC Summerlin though, so not really seeing a super birdie fest.   But who knows, those guys are so good and the ball flies like crazy in Summerlin.

I like Collin Morikawa this week, coming off a good Ryder Cup and homefield advantage.

I like him too. His major weakness is putting and familiarity with the greens' undulations is a major advantage. In addition, most other players don't know this course.

Not a difficult course if you’re long off the tee. I don’t see it giving these guys any issues. Expecting the scoring to be lower than last week. Wouldn’t surprise me if they get to -30. Especially if the winds stay down like forecasted and they keep the green speeds manageable.

No way -30. Collin Morikawa plays and practices here a lot and his lowest non competitive round is 62. I see -20, -22 as the winning score.

Crème brûlée dope! Gotta go bistro now, haven’t had in long time. I order it as “cream brool” and waiter scowl at me lol.

 

 

 

I see on GC. DJ rambling that Ryder Cup was fun but it’s the end of year. Took 2 weeks off and “has some work to do”. Then won’t play til January. 
 

Collin says lots of eagles this week and it’s good for tv 📺 

 

Rory got there over the weekend. He say to see course cause hasn’t played before. But I think like 2am Saturday you see RM at high roller Baccarat tables like,

 

Mcilroy. Rory Mcilroy ; )

Young Rory was certainly sounding in quite a defiant mood earlier in the week, back against the wall Rory is what we need to see! James Bond would certainly not be spending his down time reading books on philosophy.

Yes, later I saw he said, in effect,

 

Golf *does, at least in part, define him. Sometimes you have to give yourself a kick and he feels like he’s just getting started on that journey. 
 

Let’s see if he can light it up again. Cmon Rory, kill yo! Be like

If the chicks were in there, we’d be seeing Tiger making an appearance for sure!
