The 2022 Open Championship will be a celebration of golf on the sport's oldest grounds when it tees off Thursday on The Old Course at St. Andrews. It's the 150th anniversary of the British Open and the final major of the PGA Tour season, so all the stars will be out. Tiger Woods is planning to compete in the 2022 Open Championship field after skipping the U.S. Open.

Rory McIlroy won The Open in 2014 but missed his defense the following year at St. Andrews because of injury. He is the 9-1 favorite in the 2022 Open Championship odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Jon Rahm and Xander Schauffele are 14-1, while Woods is a 60-1 long shot.

Which players can you trust for your 2022 British Open fantasy golf picks? Before you bet the 2022 Open Championship or lock in your 2022 Open Championship Fantasy golf lineups, you NEED to see the 2022 British Open Fantasy golf rankings from Fantasy expert Riley Gates.

Gates is a writer for 247Sports and has covered a range of sports for nearly six 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.

Gates has been crushing his golf picks all season. At the John Deere Classic, he NAILED 40-1 longshot J.T. Poston as a potential winner. At the Travelers, he was all over Sahith Theegala, who was priced at just $7,300 at DraftKings and finished as a runner-up to help many Fantasy golf players cash in!

At the Memorial, five of Gates' nine picks finished in the top 15, including his biggest sleeper, Brendan Steele -- just $6,600 at DraftKings -- who posted a top-10 finish! At the Wells Fargo, four of his top six players finished in the top five, including winner Max Homa, a 40-1 long shot. Anyone who has followed Gates is WAY UP!

Now, Gates has ranked his top players for the 2022 British Open, and we can tell you the expert is firmly behind Justin Thomas as an outright winner. The expert believes the two-time major champion is overlooked by a lot of people, even though he won the PGA and has finished in the top 10 nine times this year.    

On the other hand, Gates is fading Jordan Spieth, even though he has a record of success at The Open and is among the top favorites at 16-1! The 28-year-old has been subpar in the majors this year, and Gates doesn't see him turning it around, even across the pond.

For the season's last major, Gates is backing a player for fantasy rosters who will be overlooked and is priced at less than $7,500 at DraftKings! This golfer is an excellent player around the green and should excel on a course like St. Andrews. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who Gates is backing and check out his top picks before you lock in any 2022 Open Championship fantasy golf picks!
