The 2019 CJ Cup golf tournament on the PGA Tour is taking place this week from October 17-20, 2019, at the Nine Bridges Golf Club located on Jeju Island, South Korea. Here is a list of the prize money up for grabs this week for the PGA golfers at the 2019 CJ Cup.



The CJ Cup is the 6th tournament of the 2020 PGA Tour season even though it is being played in 2019. Since 2013, the PGA Tour season begins in September or October of one year and finishes in August or September of the following year.   

The CJ Cup is a relatively new tournament on the PGA Tour which debuted in 2017. The field for the CJ Cup is limited to just 78 players with the top 60 players from the 2019 FedEx Cup standings getting invites as well as some Korean and Asian tour players and eight sponsor exemptions.

Total prize money up for grabs at the 2019 CJ Cup is $9.75 million. That's up 2.7% over the $9.50 million in prize money that was up for grabs in this event last year.
