Next week, 156 PGA Tour golfers will descend upon TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas, to compete in THE CJ CUP Byron Nelson. This tournament will take place from May 2-5 and attracts some of the Tour’s most talented golfers vying for their share of a nearly $10 million prize purse.

THE CJ CUP launched in 2017 and was South Korea’s first officially-sanctioned PGA Tour tournament. After three years of play at Nine Bridges on Jeju Island, the event was moved to America in 2020 due to challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and has been hosted in the United States ever since.

This year’s tournament begins a decade-long title sponsor partnership that CJ Group agreed to with THE CJ CUP Byron Nelson in September 2023. CJ Logistics itself sponsors several PGA Tour players who will participate, including Kyoung-Hoon Lee – who won the Byron Nelson tournament in 2021 and 2022 – as well as Sungjae Im, Byeong Hun An, and Si Woo Kim.

CJ Logistics America will once again host customers and partners at the event, which brings in 200,000 spectators every year. They will enjoy a VIP hospitality experience, with some having the opportunity to play in the Pro-Am competition prior to the PGA Tour event.

“We are proud to be a part of the organization and title sponsor of this amazing event and can’t wait for the opportunity to meet up with our customers in Dallas,” said CJ Logistics America CEO Kevin Coleman.

The [logistics center] team has always gone above & beyond in ensuring our ability to service our customers comes first. The team has always far exceeded the expectations of partnership between our companies.
