2022 Shriners Children's Open rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Patrick Cantlay: Cantlay has won here and finished second twice in recent memory. He's playing this event for a reason.

2. Sungjae Im: Im is the defending champion this week in Vegas, and he looked pretty good, but not great, in the Presidents Cup.

3. Max Homa: Homa was fantastic in the Presidents Cup and has already won this season. Could easily be No. 1 in this rundown.

4. Tom Kim: Kim was a star at Quail Hollow, and he seemed to inspire the Internationals to a respectable performance. He's in for a breakout year.

5. Taylor Montgomery: Montgomery played great at the Fortinet, and he's one of those players who could quickly win out on the PGA Tour.

6. Seamus Power: Power finished T-30 in the Sanderson Farms, which is a respectable finish after not having played since the BMW Championship.

7. Brian Harman: Some people like to rag on Brian Harman, but the man is in the top 40 in the world and just came off a great season.

8. Aaron Wise: Wise enjoyed a resurgency last season, and he's got a good feel for this golf course. Plenty of reason to like him this week.

9. Denny McCarthy: McCarthy made a nice Friday move at the Sanderson and then kind of sputtered out. He comes back to a venue he likes.

10. Matthew NeSmith: This is really a spot to highlight a guy who finished well on Sunday in Mississippi and likes TPC Summerlin.
