2020 CJ Cup at Shadow Creek rankings: Top 10 picks

1. Dustin Johnson: DJ has been the second-best player in the restart (although I guess it's not that anymore). He should feel comfy in this vibe. Of course the big ifs are him playing in the first place, as well his COVID diagnosis.

2. Justin Thomas: JT typically wins in this time of year, though it's often overseas. Obviously we're in Vegas, but this is JT's sweet spot on the calendar.

3. Rory McIlroy: We have started seeing good things from Rory, and this should be a good little Masters prep.

4. Jon Rahm: Rahm was T-23 at the US Open, where it seemed like he would be poised to beat a tough setup. Still playing great golf overall and should like the looks this week.

5. Patrick Cantlay: This may be completely off, but we have to have some hunch that Cantlay likes Vegas golf. Of course, it could just be TPC Summerlin.

6. Xander Schauffele: Xander thrives against tough fields, and he's been doing very well against those kinds of fields since the return in June.

7. Matthew Wolff: Wolff is slept on as a long hitter, but he's every bit as long as Bryson and can reduce Shadow Creek to a pitch-and-putt.

8. Tyrrell Hatton: Hatton should be higher, but I really don't know how gassed he will be from winning the BMW PGA and then flying to Vegas.

9. Tommy Fleetwood: Fleetwood missed the cut at the US Open, but he's been on a good run on the European Tour the last three outings.

10. Louis Oosthuizen: Louis backed out of the Sanderson Farms, but then he put together a nice week at the Shriners. If my Masters Lite theory hold, Louis should like it.
