Zurich Classic power rankings 2022

ORLEANS

RANK TEAM COMMENT
No. 10.  Sungjae Im & Byeong Hun An The South Koreans are back to avenge their MC last year. An was struggling at the time but he’s reversed course since losing his PGA TOUR card.
No. 9 Keegan Bradley & Brendan Steele These long-time pals opened this format by missing the cut in 2017. They didn’t reunite until 2021 but they placed T4.
No. 8 Sergio Garcia & Tommy Fleetwood  Fleetwood also finished T4 at TPC Louisiana in 2018, and he’s having the better 2021-22, so perhaps this is when he nabs his PGA TOUR breakthrough.
No. 7 Collin Morikawa & Viktor Hovland Second appearance for each but it’s their first partnership. While among the glossiest duos on the tee sheet, each will need to rely on the other to sink putts.
No. 6 Danny Willett & Tyrrell Hatton Both Brits have terrific short games – Willett is second in SG: Around-the Green; Hatton leads in SG: Putting. They debuted together last year for a T8.
No. 5 Max Homa & Talor Gooch If these two aren’t already finishing each other’s sentences, they can finish each other’s holes. Both are exquisitely balanced throughout their bags.
No. 4 Xander Schauffele & Patrick Cantlay Cantlay still is chasing his first win of 2021-22, while Schauffele has been winless since the 2019 Sentry TOC. Debuted together last year for a T11.
No. 3 Billy Horschel & Sam Burns Horschel has won this event as an individual (2013) and as a partner (2018), but he’s played his best in the team format. He and Burns placed T4 last year. Burns has two wins this season, including a successful title defense of the Valspar a month ago.
No. 2 Cameron Smith & Marc Leishman Not only are the Australians the defending champions and among the cornerstones for the Internationals in the Presidents Cup, but Smith is a two-time winner in this format (with Jonas Blixt in 2017). He’s also a two-time winner in 2022.
No. 1 Scottie Scheffler & Ryan Palmer Palmer is like the Pete Davidson of possibilities. From Jordan Spieth (2017) to Jon Rahm (2019, 2021), attractive talents want to be his partner.

Field

Scottie Scheffler is set to make his first start since winning the Masters at the Zurich Classic 2022. The No. 1 ranked player in the world will be teaming up with Ryan Palmer, who’s had success at this event in recent years.

Palmer teamed up with Jon Rahm to win the Zurich Classic in 2019, so he knows what it takes to finish on top of the leaderboard.

The 2022 Zurich Classic format will see the duos play best-ball on Thursday and Saturday and alternate shot on Friday and Sunday.

Caesars Sportsbook lists the duo of Viktor Hovland and Collin Morikawa as the 7-1 favorites in the latest 2022 Zurich Classic odds. They’re followed by Xander Schauffele/Patrick Cantlay (8-1), Cameron Smith/Marc Leishman (9-1) and Scheffler/Palmer (11-1) on the PGA odds board.
