World No. 2 Jon Rahm returns to the PGA Tour for the first time since finishing 27th in the Masters when he tees off in the 2022 Mexico Open at Vidanta, which begins on Thursday at Vidanta Vallarta in Vallarta, Mexico. Rahm has been installed as the 5-1 favorite in the Mexico Open odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Three players, including Abraham Ancer, who grew up in Mexico, are the co-second choices in the 132-player Mexico Open field, at 20-1.

Whom can you trust for your 2022 Mexico Open Fantasy golf picks? Before you bet this PGA Tour event, you have to see the 2022 Mexico Open 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.

He has been on a roll all season. At the Masters, eight of his 20 picks finished in the top eight, including winner Scottie Scheffler and runner-up Rory McIlroy. In fact, the top four players on the final leaderboard were among his picks. At the Valspar Championship, seven of his picks finished in the top 12, and he was on the money at Phoenix, where his five top selections all ended up in the top 10. He also nailed his picks at the Sentry, with four of his top seven picks posting top-five finishes, and he duplicated that at the Hero World Challenge. Anyone who has followed Gates is way up.

Now, Gates has ranked his top players for the 2022 Mexico Open, and you'll really want to see who he is backing. 

We can tell you that Gates is low on the chances of Ancer, who is the co-second choice in the Mexico Open odds, at 20-1. "He has missed two straight cuts in stroke-play events and has not been inside the top 30 since early December," Gates says. Gates has Ancer outside of the top 10 in his Fantasy leaderboard. 

On the other hand, Gates is high on Charles Howell III, a 50-1 long shot. "Howell played solid golf in early March, finishing 32nd at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and fourth at the Texas Open," he says. Gates has Howell ranked sixth on his leaderboard.

For the 2022 Mexico Open, the Fantasy expert is backing an enormous triple-digit long shot. Gates says this player was "right in the mix for the lead" recently and could surprise in Mexico. You ABSOLUTELY need to see whom Gates is backing and check out his top picks before you bet the 2022 Mexico Open or enter any Fantasy golf picks.
