2022 British Open Championship rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Xander Schauffele: Xander has won three in a row. Really. And now he's ready for a major.

2. Justin Thomas: Thomas has learned to plot his way around golf courses with all kinds of shots, so he's a great fit here.

3. Scottie Scheffler: Scheffler could be a fade if the weather gets particularly gross, but I like him in the currently predicted conditions.

4. Rory McIlroy: Again, another guy I like more because the weather is supposed to be benign. He's been great all year.

5. Jon Rahm: Rahm has been showing signs of breaking out of a relative funk, and his lag putting should come in handy this week.

6. Will Zalatoris: He's a great ballstriker, and his so-so putting isn't as big of a problem here.

7. Matt Fitzpatrick: Fitzpatrick has been getting back to level after the US Open win, and now he can focus on the week ahead.

8. Cam Smith: Smith might be back. T-10 in nasty conditions at the Scottish Open.

9. Collin Morikawa: Morikawa is still figuring it out, but he got a T-5 out of absolutely nothing at the US Open.

10. Patrick Cantlay: Cantlay dramatically underperforms in the majors. There's no doubt about that. But he's showing signs.
