2023 Tour Championship rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Rory McIlroy: Rory has been consistently strong since late spring, and he's the favorite to win a fourth FedEx Cup.

2. Scottie Scheffler: Scheffler fixed some of the woes of the last few weeks, and he's out for revenge after punting this away last year.

3. Viktor Hovland: Hovland has evolved into a totally different player in the last 12-13 months, and he can win anywhere at anytime.

4. Jon Rahm: Rahm has the driving game that should thrive in this environment, and he has some good Georgia vibes this year.

5. Max Homa: Homa has been solid for several months, and he's still very much in the FedEx Cup fight.

6. Patrick Cantlay: Cantlay is a tremendous PGA Tour-style player, and that should extend here to the season finale.

7. Brian Harman: The Open champion knocked off the rust at Olympia Fields, and he might be fresh for East Lake.

8. Xander Schauffele: Xander keeps putting himself into decent position going into the last round of the year, so maybe he'll do that again.

9. Sungjae Im: Sungjae continues to play just shy of brilliant golf, and he keeps finding a way into the Tour Championship.

10. Russell Henley: Henley has been brilliant the last several weeks, and he's hanging around some elite company.
