John Deere Classic 2022 Fantasy golf picks, advice, expert rankings: Back Sahith Theegala, fade Adam Hadwin

It could be a chance for someone to get a first PGA Tour victory this week when the 2022 John Deere Classic tees off Thursday at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Ill. Five of the past 10 winners have been first-timers, including Jordan Spieth in 2013 and Bryson DeChambeau in 2017. Lucas Glover went 19-under par last year to win his fourth PGA Tour title by two strokes. It was his first victory in just over a decade. The field is one of the weakest of the season, with just seven of the world's top 100 players, led by No. 58 Webb Simpson. The top players are preparing for the Scottish Open next week and the British Open at St. Andrews the following week. Among the other notable players in the field are Jason Day and three-time John Deere winner Steve Stricker, who is fresh off a runner-up finish at the U.S. Senior Open.

I'm versed in blues, barbecue, and the King, so I had to make sure Baz Luhrmann's new "Elvis" biopic got it right (it did, by the way, it's fantastic).
