2023 The RSM Classic rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Eric Cole: Yeah, I should probably pick someone else among the top-50 players on this list, but Cole has been building to a win.

2. Ludvig Aberg: The Oh Bear has been great throughout the fall and is trending toward a win and the world top 50.

3. Brian Harman: The Open champion hasn't played in the fall outside the Ryder Cup, but he does well in this event.

4. Cameron Young: Young finished T-54 at El Cardonal in his fall debut, and we'll chalk a lot of that up to ring rust.

5. Denny McCarthy: This is Denny's one and only start of the fall after a great PGA Tour season. He's been in the top 10 here a couple of times.

6. Corey Conners: We haven't seen Conners play this fall, but he is a tremendous ballstriker, and that should come back pretty quickly.

7. Camilo Villegas: Villegas won last week for the first time in more than nine years, and it was tremendously emotional and probably draining. Still, going T-2 and then a win indicates great things are happening.

8. Billy Horschel: Billy Ho has been playing really well in Europe this fall, and I think that should continue here stateside.

9. Alex Noren: Noren has been in the top three in two of his last three starts, and he's so close to tasting that first PGA Tour win.

10. Taylor Pendrith: The Canadian has enjoyed a solid fall, including top-15 finishes in his last two PGA Tour starts.
