2022 the Memorial Tournament preview

The Memorial Tournament is this week, and the PGA Tour heads to Jack's place with just a few weeks before the US Open. Some top names are taking a break this week (as they do every year), but overall, this should be a great test for a big purse.

2022 the Memorial Tournament rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Jon Rahm: Rahm has a knack for this place, and it feels like he's owed one for the Covid-related withdraw with a massive lead.

2. Cam Smith: Smith should really like it here. He loves Augusta and is in solid form, too.

3. Patrick Cantlay: Cantlay has been a bad play for months, but he's won here twice in the last three years, even if one of those belonged to Rahm.

4. Jordan Spieth: Spieth is playing well. It's impossible to deny that. Should do well here again.

5. Rory McIlroy: Rory didn't get it done at the PGA after a great start, but it's clear his game is in a pretty good place.

6. Will Zalatoris: If the theory about Augusta holds, who could you like much more than Zalatoris?

7. Matt Fitzpatrick: Fitzpatrick is going to win a big event this year (I think maybe the US Open), and this could be it.

8. Max Homa: It's really easy to overlook how well Homa is playing sometimes, but he's on a great run.

9. Cameron Young: Young is afraid of no one and nothing at this level, and he's going to break through soon.

10. Billy Horschel: Horschel is one of several horse-for-course plays you could slot toward the bottom of our top 10 this week.
