Marc Leishman says he is looking forward to returning to Nine Bridges for The CJ Cup as he aims for wire-to-wire wins.
The Australian kicked off the 2018/19 season in spectacular fashion with a five-stroke victory at the CIMB Classic – his fourth PGA Tour title – and he will be hoping to keep that momentum going in South Korea this week.
Leishman narrowly missed out on the inaugural edition 12 months ago, losing out to American Justin Thomas in a playoff, but he is confident of getting his hands on the trophy this time around.
“I’m excited to be back in Korea, I have a lot of good memories here. It’s going to be a good week. Hopefully, I can play well again and go one better than last year,” he was quoted as saying by Reuters.
“The course is amazing. I think the fairways are firmer than they were last year, they’re a little shorter. The greens are perfect again… I’m excited to get out there on Thursday and get into it.”
A strong field will tee it up at Nine Bridges, with the PGA Tour’s 2017-18 player of the year Brooks Koepka and major-winning Australian duo Adam Scott and Jason Day vying for glory.
