2022 Hero World Challenge rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Jon Rahm: Rahm won again in the DP World Tour Championship, notching his third win on the calendar year and his third win in that event.

2. Scottie Scheffler: Scheffler may have found something toward the end of the PGA Tour wraparound season, and his driving should be a big asset this week.

3. Tony Finau: Finau could arguably be No. 1, but he's played sparingly in the fall. Then again, he won his last time out in Houston.

4. Matt Fitzpatrick: Fitz may be well-suited this week if there's weather. His added length will help him challenge a course with a slew of par 5s.

5. Tom Kim: Kim won in Vegas, and he did well in his last start in the Dunlop Phoenix.

6. Max Homa: Homa is back after gaining some perspective -- i.e., becoming a father -- and should be back in great spirits competing in Tiger's event.

7. Tommy Fleetwood: Fleetwood is a hot hand, winning in South Africa and doing well in Dubai to end the DP World Tour campaign.

8. Xander Schauffele: Xander had a great year, and he should be able to cap it off well this week.

9. Tiger Woods: Just wanted to make sure you were paying attention.

10. Cameron Young: We haven't seen a whole lot of Young in the fall, so tread lightly, but he could be a big sleeper this week.
