With just one week before the U.S. Open, the field at the new Palmetto Championship might not be as star-studded as most tournaments are, but it's still a new and unique course that players are looking forward to.

With that in mind, let's take a look at three players to target for your fantasy team this week.

Palmetto Championship Fantasy

Brooks Koepka:
Koepeka always seemingly plays well in majors and around them. Coming off a T-2 finish at the PGA Championship and the week before the U.S. Open, Koepka should be on his game. Koepeka has placed in the top two in three of his last six events. While he uncharacteristically missed the cut at The Masters, he did finish T-2 in his last start prior to Augusta. We could see a similar result this week. Especially on a long course where Koepka will be able to take advantage of his driver, where he ranks No. 17 on tour in average driving distance and No. 20 in Strokes Gained (SG): Off-The-Tee.

Sungjae Im:
Sungjae Im has struggled lately, missing back-to-back cuts, but the weaker field here could give him a chance to get right back on track. Similar to Koepka, Im has been great off the tee this season, ranking No. 7 in tour in SG: Off-The-Tee. He also ranks No. 38 in SG: Putting and No. 32 in SG: Total. If he can continue to build upon his No. 39 ranking in Greens in Regulation, Im could put together every part of his game at the right time.

Ian Poulter:
Ian Poulter is never going to blow anyone away but he's a consistent player with a great short game. He comes into this event with three finishes in the top 30 in his last four events, including a T-3 in his most recent start at the Charles Schwab Challenge. His driving distance won't help him here, but he can make up for it with his short game. He ranks No. 21 on tour in SG: Around-The-Green, and No. 7 in SG: Putting.
