2022 The CJ Cup in South Carolina rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Rory McIlroy: Every time Rory plays, he contends. So why shouldn't he this week? (The curse is now on.)

2. Jon Rahm: Rahm won his last time out in the Spanish Open, and driving seems key on this golf course.

3. Scottie Scheffler: Scheffler is making his season debut this week. He was good but not great in the Presidents Cup, but he did end the season pretty well.

4. Tom Kim: Kim should probably be a bit higher, but he's been on quite a jaunt the last few weeks between Vegas, Chiba and South Carolina.

5. Max Homa: Homa was great in the Presidents Cup, already won this season and finished T-20 in Vegas.

6. Cameron Young: Young's driving should prove really effective this week, and he could well play dominant golf.

7. Collin Morikawa: Morikawa's ballstriking, of course, travels well, meaning he should do better than most on what is an unfamiliar venue.

8. Justin Thomas: Thomas should be better based on a long-term profile of him, but he hasn't been all that consistent since winning the PGA.

9. Shane Lowry: Lowry won the BMW PGA in September, but he missed the cut at the Dunhill Links. Can still like his game after a great year.

10. Sepp Straka: Straka has lost in a playoff in two of his last four PGA Tour starts. Straka seems most likely to strike on Bermuda.
