2019 RBC Canadian Open expert picks, rankings, fantasy golf and betting tips

Looking for 2019 RBC Canadian Open picks, either for betting or fantasy golf games like DraftKings, FanDuel, Yahoo, Golf Channel or the PGA Tour?

We have your 2019 RBC Canadian Open rankings and expert picks, as we do each week of the PGA Tour season.

The week before the US Open brings the PGA Tour to Canada for the RBC Canadian Open, with Hamilton Golf and Country Club taking over for Glen Abbey as host of the event. This is a shorter, classic-style course with plenty of horse-for-course players and a mix of top names looking to get some momentum before the third major of the year.

For those new to our weekly picks, we offer our top 10 players for free.

2019 RBC Canadian Open rankings: Top 10 picks

1. Brooks Koepka: It's a regular event, the week before a major, but Koepka is always ready to kill.

2. Dustin Johnson: Perhaps I'm not giving enough credence to DJ splitting from teacher Claude Harmon III, but this is the kind of tournament DJ wins.

3. Jim Furyk: Furyk has an incredible record at Hamilton and the Canadian Open in general. A shorter course is going to work well for an older player.

4. Rory McIlroy: McIlroy MC'd from Memorial, which was kind of surprising, and I'm wondering if Hamilton lines up well with him. Still, he's a big talent in the field.

5. Justin Thomas: JT just didn't have it at Muirfield Village. Got some bad breaks, but it didn't look pretty. The late add is probably a good call to get the house in order before Pebble.

6. Brandt Snedeker: Combining back-to-back top-20 finishes with a solid tournament history, Sneds is a guy to love this week.

7. Matt Kuchar: I'm miffed Kuchar was a dud at Memorial, but he again has a great track record in the Canadian Open. Can't ignore him because of one bad week.

8. Erik Van Rooyen: EVR is a rather underrated player, and he showed nicely in the PGA Championship. He won't be well-owned this week.

9. Webb Simpson: Webb's back! He's been on a good run of late, and no one seems to be noticing.

10. Henrik Stenson: This is more of an inclination that anything, but Stenson has been looking all year for a chance to break out.

My primary DraftKings lineup

  1. Webb Simpson - $9,700
  2. Brandt Snedeker - $9,000
  3. Jim Furyk - $8,800
  4. Erik Van Rooyen - $7,800
  5. Danny Lee - $7,300
  6. Brian Gay - $7,200
