2019 Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship rankings: Top 10 picks

1. Sungjae Im -- I've been high on Im all year, and he's continuing to show why he's going to be a long-term stud. He won in a tropical environment last year on the Web.com Tour, so he should handle this well.

2. Jhonattan Vegas -- Vegas is such a variable player that it's hard to recommend him most weeks. However, coming off a great Players, I'm willing to ride the train.

3. Joel Dahmen -- Was disappointing to see Dahmen fizzle out quickly after taking the Round 1 lead at Valspar, but he's become a cut-making machine who is now figuring out how to be a better finisher.

4. Denny McCarthy -- McCarthy is playing very good golf, notching a top-10 finish at Valspar. He likes courses where short game and putting matter most.

5. Rory Sabbatini -- The Slovakian (yep) has been playing good golf of late, though he also seems to slay in weaker fields.

6. Charl Schwartzel -- The South African entered the opposite-field event in Puerto Rico to save the top-100 ranking. He did that, and then did well at PGA National. Back down south since. But he's superior in this field.

7. Nate Lashley -- In limited action this year, Lashley has made every cut but one (Bay Hill). He's better than most players in the weaker field events like this one, and he was T-8 in Puerto Rico.

8. Rafael Campos -- I think Campos is poised for a good week. He languished in Puerto Rico, perhaps feeling the pressure of potentially winning coming off a Web.com Tour win. Not as much pressure here.

9. Adam Schenk -- Schenk has made plenty of cuts this year, and that's solid in this event. Not expecting a top-10, but I'm expecting a cash.

10. Joaquin Niemann -- Niemann isn't as good as he was coming out of the gate, but he's so talented that he's got to figure it out soon enough.

My primary DraftKings lineup

  1. Joaquin Niemann - $9,900
  2. Joel Dahmen - $9,100
  3. Rory Sabbatini - $8,800
  4. Adam Schenk - $7,400
  5. Brian Stuard - $7,400
  6. Rafael Campos - $7,300
