2022 The Honda Classic preview

The Honda Classic is this week, and the event features a field that's a pretty big step down from what we had at Riviera. It's an unfortunate circumstance for the Honda, which is well-supported but sits at a point on the schedule at the end of the West Coast swing and just before the Palmer and The Players.

Take a look at my top 10 for this week.

2022 The Honda Classic rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Daniel Berger: DB has to be the play this week given his prior record here. The boozy nature of the fans at the event could keep him relaxed, too.

2. Joaquin Niemann: Another place where Niemann's ball flight should work to his advantage. However, he will probably be gassed after winning at Riviera.

3. Brooks Koepka: Koepka got held back in Phoenix in the final round because of poor driving. That seemed to carry over to a MC at Riv. Still, he's a class player in this field.

4. Louis Oosthuizen: You know the deal with Louis: It's easy to like him in general, but it's almost impossible to like him to win on American soil. Still, T-14 in Phoenix.

5. Billy Horschel: Horschel has been solid all season, and he continues to play well. He's got a decent past at this venue.

6. Sungjae Im: Im has won here in the past, and you have to like him most weeks he plays.

7. Cameron Young: Young was a viable threat on Sunday at Riviera, and his length is a huge edge. He's gotten off to a great start in his PGA Tour career.

8. Keith Mitchell: Mitchell is a past winner here, and he's been playing great golf so far this season.

9. Mito Pereira: Mito finished T-15 at Riviera against a great field, and he's trending in the right direction.

10. Tommy Fleetwood: Fleetwood has a pair of top-five finishes in this event, and he was T-12 in Dubai, which is prone to wind.
