PGA Power Rankings Following the US Open

Matt Fitzpatrick was victorious this past weekend at the U.S. Open, with a score of -6. This was a surprise to most, as he won his first PGA Tour event, and major championship in the same night here, and made history! He was followed by Will Zalatoris and Scottie Scheffler, who tied for second at -5 each. Some other news is that Brooks Koepka, who finished this event at +12, has left the PGA Tour for the upstart LIV Golf league, so while he was not on my radar for this list, he now is on nobody's with this decision.

1. Scottie Scheffler

Having an elite year, he has won a Masters, and come in second TWICE since then. He is a threat to win on any course, every time out, and he is an analytics darling, which I love! Look for him to continue to apply the pressure to the field here!

2. Jordan Speith

Analytically, there is nobody playing better, but I could not give the top spot to him with his inconsistent play with the brightese lights the last few times out. If he can get his mental game right, he is capable of a crazy second half of 2022.

3. Rory McIlroy

He keeps coming out for more! His finishes have been well above respectable and he has shown no signs of slowing down. He is the top golfer this year in SGT2G, which is essentially showing that he is making every single shot count, and it is paying off.

4. Justin Thomas

Thomas has withdrawn from the upcoming Traveler's Open, but that may be just what the doctor ordered as he has been bad on the green, but that was a lack of focus. Once he is all rested, I expect the high level of play to resume, and for him to get a win shortly after.

5. Patrick Cantlay

Prior to the US Open, he had two top-three finishes, and also ranks high because of the potential that he has on the River Highlands course that the Traveler's Open will take place on.

6. Xander Schauffele

The player with the most consistent game, is always a safe bet to avoid getting cut, and finish in the top-20. To me his upside is a little lower than what most people think, but with that being said, he has one of the highest floors in the game. He is here to stay!

7. Sam Burns

Sam Burns has been putting himself in a position to win here in 2022. The US Open was a meltdown at the end, but he has still impressed from the start of the year, so my worry level is minimal.

8. Sungjae Im

Im also withdrew from the Traveler's Open, and while he is the most volatile of the options, his upside has shown throughout the years and his analytics say that he has been better than it has looked. This feels like he would be a sneaky play to win next time he plays!

9. Seamus Power

2021s biggest breakout for me has shown that he has the putter to stay close in any tournament. He has finished top-12 in each of the last two times out, and he really feels like a safe top-ten bet with two huge names sitting out at the Traveler's Open.

10. Will Zalatoris

Will may not be on many other lists like this, but there is no way that I could leave him off. He is having one of the best years of anyone on tour, and while he is lacking true consistency, he has finished #2 in each of the last two Master's competitions. Bright Light WIllie will get a chance again next time out, and then a win should earn him some respect.
