2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Rory McIlroy: Rory is gaining strokes on the field at a ridiculous clip this year, and he's been largely hot all season long.

2. Cameron Smith: The new Open champion got to enjoyed the fruits of winning his first major title, and now he's back. His poor driving could be a problem.

3. Patrick Cantlay: Don't look now, but Cantlay has been playing great golf of late.

4. Tony Finau: Finau is the latest guy to look like he might never lose again, winning his last two starts back-to-back.

5. Scottie Scheffler: Scheffler is the man to kick off the playoffs in the lead, and he should drive it well here.

6. Xander Schauffele: Xander had his invincible run, and he's had time to recharge for another playoff run.

7. Justin Thomas: JT has been quite erratic since winning the PGA Championship, but he should be ready to buckle down this week.

8. Sam Burns: Burns nearly won here last year in the WGC but lost to Abe Ancer when he missed a short playoff putt.

9. Jon Rahm: Rahm gains his strokes driving above all else, and this course requires that to get around.

10. Will Zalatoris: Willy Z is due, but he also seems to tire out at the end of seasons, so will more experience help him in the playoffs?
