2019 CJ Cup at Nine Bridges rankings: Top 10 picks

1. Brooks Koepka: Have to stick with Brooks in the No. 1 hole as defending champion here, and it's a place he can beat driver to death.

2. Justin Thomas: JT has done well in Asian events in the past, particularly in Malaysia (RIP). T-4 in his last start at the Safeway.

3. Tommy Fleetwood: Fleetwood was T-5 at the Dunhill Links (and won the pro-am). He hits a lot of greens, could play well in wind and is super consistent.

4. Sungjae Im: Im is in a home game this week, and he won in Korea the week after faltering in the playoff in Mississippi. He's a machine.

5. Rafa Cabrera Bello: RCB is almost always a good pick in these events. He plays well tee to green, and if the putts drop, he contends.

6. Danny Willett: Love Willett this week. Coming off a big win in the BMW PGA Championship, his confidence is high. Great 2019 year for him.

7. Viktor Hovland: Hovland is a workhorse, and he plays final rounds as well as anyone in pro golf. He's guaranteed four rounds, so game him.

8. Kevin Na: Na comes off a third win in a little more than a year, and he's cleared the air about issues with a past fiancee. Free and clear.

9. Cameron Smith: I think we just have to realize Cam Smith finishes the year better than anything. Playing really well this fall.

10. Jazz Janewattananond: The Asian Tour OOM leader has been awesome in his home continent this year, and he has the game to play with the biggest names.

My primary DraftKings lineup

  1. Sungjae Im - $9,700
  2. Cameron Smith - $9,000
  3. Danny Willett - $8,900
  4. Kevin Na - $8,600
  5. Jazz Janewattananond - $7,000
  6. Adam Long - $6,700
