  Brooks Koepka all in for Team USA at Ryder Cup: 'I never said it was negative' Brooks Koepka set the record straight on his commitment to the Ryder Cup team, which had been called into question recently over his comments.“I enjoy it.

  2021 Shriners Children's Open Fantasy golf rankings, picks, lineup advice: Back Hovland, fade Koepka Riley Gates has locked in his top Fantasy golf picks for the Shriners Children's Open 2021May 17, 2019; Bethpage, NY, USA; Bubba Watson plays his shot from the sixth tee during the second round of the PGA Championship golf tournament at Bethpage State Park - Black Course.

Burns went out and made four birdies in a six-hole stretch on the back nine Sunday to win his second PGA Tour title, and Johnson knew he had the momentum.

Johnson also comes off a stellar season where he showed his uncanny knack for gauging how players fit the courses. Before the U.S. Open in June, he pegged Jon Rahm among his best bets to win and touted Louis Oosthuizen at 45-1 as his top long-shot candidate. Rahm and Oosthuizen battled to the finish, with Rahm surging to his first major title.

And before the Tokyo Olympics, he had Xander Schauffele, Collin Morikawa, Rory McIlroy and Hideki Matsuyama among his top five golfers. Schauffele won the gold medal for Team USA, while the other three made the playoff for bronze.

He also was one of the few experts to say 55-1 long shot Kevin Kisner had a legitimate chance before he got his first stroke-play win in more than four years at the Wyndham Championship. Anyone who has followed Johnson's advice has cashed in huge.

Top 2021 Shriners Children's Open golf predictions

Shockingly, the golf expert is fading Koepka, who is one of the favorites amongst oddsmakers. The 31-year-old finished in the top six of three majors and won a tournament last season despite having major knee surgery in February. But Koepka has had a spotty record at TPC Summerlin. He was the runner-up in 2017 and tied for fourth in 2015, but he has missed the cut in his three other appearances. The golf expert doesn't know which Koepka will show up this week, and he has several better options who might be flying under your radar.

On the flip side, Johnson wants to see how Hovland's game fits TPC Summerlin in his first appearance at the Shriners. The world's 14th-ranked player is just 24, but he already has two tour victories and won the BMW International Open in Germany this summer. He won the Mayakoba Golf Classic last season and finished in the top three four other times. He finished T-12 at the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas last fall, and he ended the season with a T-5 at the Tour Championship. He was ninth on tour in scoring average last season at 69.888.
