The CJ Cup is moving to Congaree Golf Club in Ridgeland, S.C., this October, the PGA Tour announced Wednesday.

The limited-field tournament took place in Nevada in 2020 and 2021 after being held on South Korea’s Jeju Island for the first three years of the event from 2017-19.

The CJ Cup in South Carolina will feature a 78-man field that includes five players designated by the Korea PGA and the top three available Korean players from the world rankings. Most of the field is based on the previous season’s FedEx Cup standings on the PGA Tour.

Rory McIlroy is the defending champion. Prior winners were Jason Kokrak (2020), Justin Thomas (2017, 2019) and Brooks Koepka (2018).
