This week, the golfing world is turning its attention to the RBC Canadian Open at St. George's Golf and Country Club. With the U.S. Open set for next week, golfers are getting in their last chance for a tune-up prior to the third major of the year.

Just a few weeks after the PGA Championship and not long to go before the U.S. Open, players are heading to St. George's Golf and Country Club for the RBC Canadian Open.

RBC Canadian Open 2022 Fantasy Picks

Rory McIlroy Fantasy

This event changes courses this year, coming to St. George's Golf and Country Club. Despite course change, I'm still riding with the defending champion Rory McIlroy to have another great week north of the border. This event has been canceled for the last two years, but it returns in 2022, while McIlroy is in the midst of a great stretch of golf. He has three top-10 finishes in his last four starts and the other one was still a T-18. He ranks top-five on tour in Strokes Gained (SG): Tee-To-Green, SG: Off-The-Tee and SG: Total heading into the event.

Tony Finau Fantasy

Tony Finau has two top-five finishes in his last four starts and has now made seven consecutive cuts. If he can keep his short stick in order, he could make some real noise this week. He ranks top-25 on tour in SG: Off-The-Tee, SG: Approach The Green, SG: Tee-To-Green. He's also No. 26 on tour in Greens in Regulation.

RBC Canadian Open Sleepers 2022

Chris Kirk Fantasy

Chris Kirk is coming off a T-5 and T-15 at the PGA Championship and Charles Schwabb Challenge three and two starts ago amongst much more impressive fields than this week. He did have a T-53 at The Memorial last week, but that shouldn't deter from his potential for another strong outing this week. He ranks No. 26 in SG: Off-The Tee, No. 5 in SG: Around-The-Green, No. 14 in SG: Tee-To-Green, and No. 23 in SG: Total. He seems undervalued this week and is a great option to consider outside of the top-tier guys.
