2022 Shriners Children’s Open model and fantasy golf rankings

Welcome to my weekly fantasy golf model for the 2022 Shriners Children's Open!

Beginning in 2020, I developed a weekly rubric which offers a clear-cut ranking system based on data points weighted in a formula. So far, it's been a tremendous success. Here's a look at several PGA Tour winners since June 2021 and where they landed in the model:

  • Sanderson Farms Championship: Sam Burns - No. 1
  • Shriners Children's Open: Sungjae Im - No. 18
  • The CJ Cup at Summit: Rory McIlroy - No. 12
  • Zozo Championship: Hideki Matsuyama - No. 17
  • World Wide Technology Championship: Viktor Hovland - No. 2
  • The RSM Classic: Talor Gooch - No. 16
  • Sentry Tournament of Champions: Cameron Smith - No. 15
  • Sony Open in Hawaii: Hideki Matsuyama - No. 9
  • Farmers Insurance Open: Luke List - No. 37
  • AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am: Tom Hoge - No. 42
  • Waste Management Phoenix Open: Scottie Scheffler - No. 11
  • The Genesis Invitational: Joaquin Niemann - No. 26
  • Arnold Palmer Invitational: Scottie Scheffler - No. 4
  • The Players Championship: Cameron Smith - No. 14
  • Valspar Championship: Sam Burns - No. 7

  • Wells Fargo Championship: Max Homa - No. 19
  • PGA Championship: Justin Thomas - No. 6

  • RBC Canadian Open: Rory McIlroy - No. 3
  • US Open: Matt Fitzpatrick - No. 13
  • Travelers Championship: Xander Schauffele - No. 1
  • Genesis Scottish Open: Xander Schauffele - No. 3
