2020 The Northern Trust rankings: Top 10 picks
1. Collin Morikawa: The new PGA champion can get to No. 1 in the world with a win or potentially a solo second. I love Morikawa, but he didn’t handle that cuts-made streak thing well, so he could be in line for a drop in performance.
2. Bryson DeChambeau: Won here in 2018 in a showdown with Justin Rose. DeChambeau runs hot and cold, and he has to feel good about getting close at the PGA.
3. Justin Thomas: Thomas was pedestrian at the PGA, and he got frustrated because he couldn’t convert a lot of opportunities. He should get back on the saddle this week.
4. Daniel Berger: DBSV has just been a stud in the restart, and he’s been out of the top 13 just once dating back to the Phoenix Open.
5. Webb Simpson: Simpson just continues to play lovely golf. He should be a consideration every week he plays.
6. Rory McIlroy: McIlroy has enjoyed TPC Boston in the past, and he should again. The problem is that he’s been pedestrian in the restart, not taking advantage of his superior driving game.
7. Xander Schauffele: There’s no good reason to avoid Xander right now. He’s so consistent week to week.
8. Tony Finau: That man is finding his stride again. He’s been in the top eight in three of his last four starts and has played TPC Boston well in the past.
9. Jon Rahm: Rahm is a world No. 1 who isn’t playing like a world No. 1. Save for that impressive Memorial win, he’s played more like Rory: good but not great.
10. Dustin Johnson: The memory of going 80-80-78 lingers, but DJ has been very good in his last two starts.
