Watch as Justin Thomas shares his thoughts on the significant growth of golf ahead of the CJ Cup, originally due to be held in South Korea.
Thomas, who is also the defending champion at the event, was speaking ahead of Thursday’s tee-off at Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas. He said in the past he never had the opportunity to compete in any Asian country as part of the PGA Tour.
‘I maybe played the British Open, but in terms of actually going across the country and playing in front of a different language and being in different surroundings and trying to figure out where to go eat food and all that stuff, it’s a fun experience but the amount of support that myself and all the other players get when we go over to Asia is really cool because they know everything about golf,’ said Thomas.
The 27-year-old will play in one of the featured groups alongside Brooks Koepka and Sungjae Im for the opening two rounds.
