It is hosted by the Dallas Salesmanship Club of Dallas, a non-profit organization in Dallas, and it is a well-known competition in Korea with Korean players including Lee Kyung-hoon, Kang Sung-hoon and Bae Sang-moon winning four times

The tournament is considered one of the big sports festivals in the Dallas area and is famous for attracting 200,000 spectators every year. This is why attention is being paid to the appearance that The CJ Cup, which started as the only regular PGA Tour tournament in Korea, will create with Byron Nelson, who boasts history and tradition.

The CJ Cup trophy, which was created with the motif of Jikji Shimcheyojeol, the world’s oldest metal type printing, and Hangeul, is also used in the CJ Cup byron Nelson. Unlike the previous championship, in which all participants were imprinted with Korean names, the names of previous winners are engraved to add meaning to the current championship.
