A stacked field is in for a stern test tis week when the PGA Tour heads to Muirfield Village Golf Club for the 2022 Memorial Tournament Present by Workday. Seven of the top 10 golfers in the world are scheduled to tee off Thursday, with 2020 Memorial winner Jon Rahm, defending champion Patrick Cantlay and 2021 runner-up Collin Morikawa among them. Cantlay beat Morikawa in a playoff last year after Rahm, the 54-hole leader, had to withdraw after a positive COVID test.
Rahm is the 11-1 favorite in Caesars Sportsbook's latest 2022 Memorial Tournament golf odds, just ahead of Rory McIlroy (12-1) and Cantlay (14-1). Jordan Spieth (18-1), Morikawa (20-1), Cameron Smith (20-1) and Xander Shcauffele (20-1) also are among the favorites to contend for the Memorial Tournament 2022 title.
Which players can you trust for your 2022 Memorial Tournament fantasy golf picks? Before you bet this PGA Tour event or lock in your lineups, you NEED to see the 2022 Memorial Tournament Fantasy golf rankings from Fantasy expert Riley Gates.
Gates is a writer for 247Sports and has covered a range of sports for nearly five years. He has followed golf closely for much longer and has a profound knowledge of the sport. He also knows what it takes to win, on the course and in fantasy sports.
At last week's Charles Schwab Challenge, three of Gates' top six picks finished in the top four on the final leaderboard, including winner Sam Burns and runner-up Scottie Scheffler. Before the PGA, Gates had both winner Justin Thomas and 30-1 shot Zalatoris, who lost to Thomas in a playoff, among his top five picks.
Gates has been on a serious roll all season. Before the Wells Fargo Championship, four of his top six players finished in the top five. That included winner Max Homa, a 40-1 long shot, and runners-up Keegan Bradley (35-1) and Matt Fitzpatrick (22-1).
He also nailed Rahm as the winner in the Mexico Open, and eight of his 20 picks finished in the top eight at the Masters. Anyone who has followed Gates is WAY UP!
Now, Gates has ranked his top players for the 2022 Memorial Tournament. We can tell you that the expert is backing McIlroy all the way. "How could you build a team and not have McIlroy as your big hitter?" Gates says. The 33-year-old has three straight top-10 finishes, and the expert doesn't expect him to falter.
On the other hand, Gates is fading Morikawa despite his star power and a runner-up finish last year. The experts loves the young player but just hasn't seen enough consistency to pay a premium for him this week. The 25-year-old has finished outside the top 25 in four straight tournaments.
For the 2022 Memorial Tournament, the Fantasy expert is behind a long shot who comes in at around 80-1 odds and priced under $7,000 at DraftKings! Gates says this player comes in hot and will be a steal as one of the lower-priced players to fill out your lineup.
