Jon Rahm and Patrick Cantlay will be among those at the center of attention this week at the 2022 Memorial Tournament Presented by Workday. Rahm was forced out with COVID last year after a third-round 64 gave him a six-stroke lead. Cantaly seized the opportunity and beat Collin Morikawa in a playoff, a victory that sparked Cantlay's run to the 2020-21 FedEx Cup title.

Rahm is the 9-1 favorite in the latest 2022 Memorial Tournament golf odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Rory McIlroy is close behind at 10-1, followed by Cantlay (14-1), Morikawa (18-1), Jordan Spieth (18-1) and Cameron Smith (18-1).

Before you consider your 2022 Memorial Tournament picks or make any PGA Tour predictions, you NEED to see what proven golf insider Sal Johnson has to say.

The esteemed golf insider has been around the game for many years and knows what it takes to win on the PGA Tour.

Before the PGA Championship, Johnson predicted that if Justin Thomas made his putts he could definitely win. Thomas had his best week of the season on the greens, gaining more than 1.5 strokes putting to rank second in the field. The result? He beat Will Zalatoris in a playoff to win his second PGA Championship.    

In his previous set of predictions for SportsLine, he NAILED the Masters for the third time in four years! Johnson backed Scheffler, saying he was "on a run where he has been hard to beat, and I see it rolling on at Augusta National." The 25-year-old got his fourth victory of the season. 

Now Johnson, the first producer of "Inside the PGA Tour" and longtime ABC Sports golf producer who worked with Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, has released his highly confident 2022 Memorial Tournament picks.

Shockingly, Johnson is fading Smith, who is among the favorites but can't be counted on at Muirfield. "He is a terrible pick for this week," Johnson says. The Australian has broken par just once in 16 rounds on this course, missing the cut in four of six appearances.

Instead, the expert is VERY high on a long shot who comes in at around 50-1. This veteran can strike at any time, and his game is coming around after a cooling-off period. If he pulls off the stunning win, it would net a HUGE payday! You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before entering any Memorial Tournament picks!
