2022 AT&T Byron Nelson rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Scottie Scheffler: The best player in the world is tuning up to play what he describes as his favorite golf course.

2. Justin Thomas: JT has recently alternated top-10 finishes with finishes right around 35th place. He's then due for a top-10 finish this week.

3. Jordan Spieth: Spieth does very well for himself in the Texas events, and he did well here last year, too.

4. Sam Burns: Burn is back for a reason in Year 2 here, and it's not to fulfill a scheduling requirement. He likes the golf course.

5. Joaquin Niemann: Niemann has really played well throughout the year, and his T-12 at Heritage after a respectable Masters is decent momentum.

6. Dustin Johnson: DJ has found a little something, with good finishes in two of his last three starts.

7. Will Zalatoris: He's been in the top six in his last two individual events, and there's nothing to dislike about that. Must improve putting.

8. Xander Schauffele: Xander won in his last start, albeit in the team event in New Orleans with Patrick Cantlay. Still, a confidence boost is nice.

9. Brooks Koepka: Koepka has been all or nothing this year, and despite that, he's still had a better year than the overwhelming number of his peers.

10. Seamus Power: Power played this event well last year as he was beginning a march up the world ranking.
