Page 2 will have a look at One-and-Done options as well as PGATOUR.com's fantasy game. 

Josh Culp



Corey Conners (10,200): He was in a very different spot at this point last year (status-wise) before going on to finish runner-up at the CC of Jackson. He's now a PGA TOUR winner who arrives with five straight top 30s. 

Brandt Snedeker (11,700): Looking to bank some early-season FedExCup Points this week, I like his chances this week as he makes his course debut. Ended last season with five straight top 40s. 

Scottie Scheffler (11,000): Will be very popular until he cools off. Enters with finishes of WIN, T11, T7, and T7 over his last four. 

Joseph Bramlett (8,800): He's been steady on the Korn Ferry Tour since returning from injury and he didn't let up last week at The Greenbrier (T14). 

Si Woo Kim (9,500): Shows some consistency when he's healty but still a pretty boom-or-bust option. That's good for GPPs because it keeps his ownership low. 

Harry Higgs (8,700): The SMU product is on fire with finishes of T23 or better in seven of his last eight starts. 



Sungjae Im (10,500) - Missed the cut at this event last year but he was dealing with some potential jet lag that week. 

Wyndham Clark (8,400) - Has been flirting with contention, steadily, for a few months now. Only a matter of time for the youngster from Denver. 

Joseph Bramlett (7,100) - Has top 30s in seven of his last eight starts across the PGA TOUR and KFT. 

Patton Kizzire (6,700) - This is the part of the country where Kizzire is comfortable. The Auburn product has a T4 and T10 in three tries at the CC of Jackson. 

Lanto Griffin (7,300) - Won on the KFT in April and hasn't looked back since. Including that win, he is 12 for his last 15 with top 25s in 11 of those starts. 

Emiliano Grillo (9,400) - There are a lot of popular names above him so I'm hoping he gets overlooked this week. The Argentine has some of the best bermuda splits in the field working for him.

Brandt Snedeker (44): Has been T7 or better after 6 of his last 16 rounds played so he was picking up some steam before the season came to an end. 

Emiliano Grillo (41): The Argentine couldn't be bothered to put this event on his schedule when it was an alternate-field event but now he's getting his first look and it should be love at first sight. I would expect him to pound greens in regulation all week with the wildcard being his putter. 

Doc Redman (34): A steady, ball-striking machine, the young Clemson product has top 40s in 10 of his last 12 starts across the pro tours. 

Harry Higgs (35): The SMU product did not disappoint in his PGA TOUR debut last week and I will ride the hot hand until the gas runs out. 

Lanto Griffin (26): One of the hottest golfers in the field, if we go back to mid-April when he won on the Korn Ferry Tour. 

Patton Kizzire (20): Has two top 10s in three visits to CC of Jackson.
