The 2022 PGA Championship will mark the 104th edition of the event and the first major to take place in Oklahoma in 15 years. Southern Hills Country Club will host the tournament, which tees off Thursday, and Phil Mickelson is the defending champion but will not compete this week. Scottie Scheffler, the No. 1 golfer in the world, coming off a Masters victory and is one of the favorites to win back-to-back majors.

Caesars Sportsbook lists Scheffler as an 11-1 co-favorite alongside Jon Rahm in its latest 2022 PGA Championship odds. A dozen golfers have odds of 20-1 or shorter, with other contenders including Rory McIlroy (14-1), Justin Thomas (14-1), Dustin Johnson (18-1) and Jordan Spieth (18-1) in a loaded 2022 PGA Championship field.      

Which players can you trust for your 2022 PGA Championship fantasy golf picks? Before you bet this PGA Tour event or lock in your lineups, you NEED to see the 2022 PGA Championship 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 the Wells Fargo Championship, Gates was on fire, with four of his top six players finishing 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).   

The previous week at the Mexico Open, he nailed the winner, backing Rahm as his top choice despite the Spaniard's recent slump. And at the Masters, eight of his 20 picks finished in the top eight, including winner Scheffler and runner-up McIlroy. In fact, the top four players on the final leaderboard were among his picks.

He has been on a roll all season. He nailed his predictions 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 PGA Championship.

We can tell you that Gates is firmly behind Scottie Scheffler, who comes in with confidence after picking up his first major championship at Augusta National. On the other hand, Gates is fading Brooks Koepka and doesn't even list him in the top 20. Koepka is a two-time PGA champion, but he withdrew from the AT&T Byron Nelson and missed the cut at the Masters. Koepka has notched just two top-10 finishes across 13 official PGA Tour events this season.

For the 2022 PGA Championship, the Fantasy expert is backing a long shot in his top five who comes in around 30-1! This player has been crushing it off the tee and posting solid results, and he should be a strong piece for your fantasy golf lineups. You ABSOLUTELY need to see whom Gates is backing and check out his top picks before you bet the 2022 PGA Championship or enter any 2022 PGA Championship fantasy golf picks.
