2021 PGA CJ Cup in South Carolina Recap

One of the reasons Rory is such a short-priced favorite heading into this match is because he beat Collin Morikawa, Keith Mitchell, and Rickie Fowler to win the 2021 The CJ Cup.

McIlroy shot a 68-67-62-66 on his way to a -25. Morikawa finished second with a -24 while Mitchell and Fowler finished tied for third with a -22. Thomas shot a -18 in last year’s event. Scheffler shot a -15. Jon Rahm didn’t play at the 2021 The CJ Cup.

2022 CJ Cup in South Carolina Top Pick

Scottie Scheffler’s -15 last year was 10 strokes off Rory, but the winner dominated. Nobody, except maybe Morikawa, was going to catch McIlroy. Scottie played well in the 2021 tournament. Scheffler finished second to Rory at the Tour Championship in his last tournament played.

The 2022 Masters winner finished second at the U.S. Open. Scheffler hopes to build upon an excellent 2021. So we should expect him to have his sticks working this week.

2022 CJ Cup in South Carolina Second Pick

The reigning The CJ Cup champ turned it on at the Tour Championship to secure another FedEx Cup victory. Rory McIlroy not only won the FedEx Cup last season, but he also scored a top ten finish in every major.

Rory finished second at the Masters, eighth at the PGA Championship, fifth at the U.S. Open, and third at The Open Championship. McIlroy loves this course. So he can win, but the odds make him unplayable.

2022 CJ Cup in South Carolina Third Pick

Sung-Jae Im shot a -20 at last year’s The CJ Cup. The reason to consider backing Sung-Jae to win this year’s tournament is because he’s started the season with hot sticks.

He finished seventh at the Shriners Children’s Hospital. He finished twenty-ninth at the ZOZO Championship. On the surface it doesn’t look like Im hit the ball that well. However, Sung-Jae shot a 66 fourth-round. Im has momentum and is a contender to win this week’s PGA event.

2022 CJ Cup in South Carolina Underdog Pick

Morikawa finished a stroke behind McIlroy at the 2021 The CJ Cup. Last year’s finish alone makes Collin a player in this. The reason for the long odds is because Morikawa didn’t hit the ball well at the ZOZO Championship. But Collin scored a 64 second round.

If Morikawa is more consistent in South Carolina then he was in Chiba, Japan, he can pull off the upset victory.
