2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Will Zalatoris: Zalatoris is the toast of the field this week, and he should fare well on this Donald Ross design.

2. Cameron Young: Young is not far away from a PGA Tour win, and with a week off after that runner-up at the Open, he is rested and ready.

3. Tony Finau: Top-five Tony played well at the 3M, another go-low venue, and he should thrive here as well.

4. Max Homa: Homa loves great architecture, and this is a fun Ross that just happens to be pretty easy as well.

5. Patrick Cantlay: Cantlay is a great get for this field, and he seems to have something with Midwest venues.

6. Cameron Tringale: Tringale keeps getting close to figuring out that first PGA Tour win, and this is a venue for him.

7. Kevin Kisner: Kisner is a horse-for-course kind of guy, and guess where he likes? Here!

8. Adam Scott: Scott has been in the top 15 in back-to-back major starts, and he paces his schedule well.

9. Sahith Theegala: Theegala missed the cut at the 3M, but that letdown isn't a big knock on a strong season.

10. Troy Merritt: We're on the same page with Merritt as Kisner, and that counts for something.
