The PGA Tour is preparing for its next event, THE CJ CUP, held for the first time at Congree Golf Club in Ridgeland, South Carolina.

A ton of the world's top players will be teeing it up this week at Congaree, including the likes of Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm and Scottie Scheffler.

Let's take a look at three guys to consider when putting together your fantasy team this week.

THE CJ CUP 2022 Fantasy Picks

Rory McIlroy Fantasy

Rory McIlroy won this event last year, albeit at a different at a different course. However, Congaree is a monster of a course yardage-wise, so being long off the tee will be beneficial, and almost no one in the world hits the ball longer than McIlroy. He was No. 2 in driving distance last season, No. 12 in Greens in Regulation and No. 3 in Strokes Gained: Off-The-Tee. His game is set up for success here and i expect him to deliver upon his top premier pricing this week.

Sungjae Im Fantasy

Sungjae Im doesn't have the success the next person on this list has at Congaree, but he has at least recorded a professional event here, placing 35th at last year's Palmetto Championship. Im has gotten off to a solid start in this short season, already grabbing a 7th-place finish and a T29. Despite a not so impressive finish here, Im's experience should prove beneficial to him over much of the rest of the field.

THE CJ CUP Sleepers 2022

Tyrrell Hatton Fantasy

Tyrrell Hatton is our long shot sleeper this week. Mainly because he's one of the few with past professional success on this course. Congaree is the home of the Palmetto Championship, and THE CJ CUP moved here this year. Hatton placed T2 at Congaree in his last professional start here. So let's take his short resume here and go after an above-price value performance.
