We’re going to keep it short and sweet this week as we hate these types of tournaments, so let’s just get to our short and shitty cut and paste of our preview and then to the breakdown.
The Club at Nine Bridges is a 7,196 yard, par 72. Located on Jeju Island, a resort destination just south of the Korean mainland, Nine Bridges opened in 2001 and is the only Korean course ranked among the world’s top 100. Designers Ronald Fream and David Dale deftly incorporated the layout into rolling pineland beneath Mount Halla, a dormant volcano that formed Jeju Island. The club was one of the first Asian venues on the LPGA schedule, with Se Ri Pak capturing the first tournament in 2002. Nine Bridges wound up serving as LPGA host for four years, with Korean pros winning all four editions.
Other little notes that we’ve found, this course is using Bentgrass greens, uses Scottish Bunkering and is 3,500 feet above sea level. For players that aren’t used to laying above sea level, this will be a little bit of challenge but they should still be able to adjust in their practice rounds.
Last year, Justin Thomas won this tourney and most of the guys on the leaderboard were SGTG type players and ball striking types. So we’re going to stick with these kinda guys this week too.
Now for the breakdown. We did our best to stay away from players that may be highly owned based off their performances from last week as the soup du jour. So below we have either course manager types our solid ball strikers.
