The PGA Tour heads to South Korea this week for the CJ Cup where Brooks Koepka will be looking to successfully defend his title after winning the tournament at Nine Bridges last year, while Justin Thomas won the competition in its first year back in 2017.

There's a star-studded field battling it out this week and some excellent prices to take advantage of at the bookies, but who are GolfMagic backing this week to do well?

Gary Woodland - 22/1

If it wasn't for Brooks Koepka being the beast that he is, Gary Woodland would have won this event last year. He was brilliant throughout all four rounds but Koepka just had that extra bit of magic throughout the week.

Woodland will need to impress Tiger Woods if he's going to get picked for the Presidents Cup, especially after Kevin Na's win in Las Vegas. Woodland is now a world class player and has improved since his epic performance in South Korea last year, so we expect the US Open champion to be around the top of the leaderboard once again this year.

Sungjae Im - 25/1

Our favourite pick of the week, Sungjae Im. He was born on Jeju Island and is a local hero, plus he's fast becoming one of the best players in the world. Im won the Genesis Championship on the Korean Tour last week and two week's earlier lost in a play-off in the Sandersons Farms Championship.

He didn't do so well in this even last year, but back then it was just his second PGA Tour start, but Im is now an established PGA Tour player and unlike many of the field this week, he won't be struggling with jetlag. Im is currently ranked 44th in the world following his victory last week and if he can hold his position by new year, he'll secure a spot at the Masters, something the young Korean will be desperate to do.

Kevin Na - 40/1

Kevin Na is in some excellent form as of late, with three wins in his last 30 starts, it's hard to look past the Korean-American. Na emigrated to the United States when he was a boy and lives in Las Vegas where he has now won twice, the latest being at the Shriners Open just a few weeks ago.

A story recently broke regarding a very messy past-engagement between Na and a woman from Korea, that has caused Na a lot of emotional pain, where the local media were ripping his name to shreds. He is looking forward to playing in front of a home crowd this week, and as long as his emotions don't get the better of him, Na is well worth an each way bet at 40/1.
