Many PGA Tour players who played essential roles in the Presidents Cup are back in action this week at the 2022 Shriners Children’s Open, which begins Thursday in Las Vegas.
Patrick Cantlay, world No. 4, leads a Shriners Children’s Open 2022 field that features 12 of the world’s top 50 players. Sungjae I’m, the defending champion is also among those players, and the 19th-ranked South Korean tied the event record at 24 under par last year with a final-round 62. Cantlay and Max Homa were key members of the US team that won the Presidents Cup at Quail Hollow two weeks ago, winning 17-.5-12.5.
In Charlotte, Cantlay went 3-1-0 and Homa went 4-0-0. Im gave a spirited performance for the losing International team, finishing with a 2-2-1 record. Homa, who won the Fortinet Championship the week before the Presidents Cup, will also play on Thursday. Homa has missed the cut four times in five appearances at TPC Summerlin, but he is coming off a Tour Championship season in which he won twice and finished sixth.
Cantlay (7-1), I’m (10-1), and Homa (15-1) are the favourites in the latest 2022 Shriners Children’s Open odds from Caesars Sportsbook. They are the only golfers priced at less than 20-1. Aaron Wise (22-1) and Tom Kim (22-1) are among the top candidates in the Shriners Children’s Open 2022 tournament.

Expert predictions for the 2022 Shriners Children’s Open
Despite his standing as a favourite and the fantastic run he is on, McDonald is fading Homa. He hasn’t performed well at TPC Summerlin, and his game doesn’t seem to fit the course. He finished 30th, the only time he made the weekend, and he has only gone under par five times in 12 rounds. The California native isn’t accumulating birdies as he needs to this week. Last season, he was 40th on tour in birdies per round (3.94) and 35th in par breakers (22.76 per cent). He was also placed 118th in regulation greens (66 per cent).
Cantlay’s strategy, on the other hand, is ideal for Las Vegas, as he hits a lot of greens and scores low. He is 70 points below par in his four Shriners appearances. Cantlay won the competition in 2017, was a runner-up twice, and now sits in a tie for ninth place. He finished seventh on tour in birdies per round last season and sixth in scoring average (69.468). He confidently enters the Presidents Cup, having won the BMW Championship in August and tied for eighth at the Tour Championship. See who else you can choose from here.
