2021 CJ Cup Fantasy golf rankings, picks, lineup advice: Back Jordan Spieth, fade Xander Schauffele


The PGA Tour spends its second straight week in Las Vegas, and a top-tier field will tee off Thursday at the 2021 CJ Cup at Summit Club. The field of 78 golfers includes top names like Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Jordan Spieth, and the Tom Fazio-designed course is expected to offer picturesque views and low scores.

Olympic gold medalist Xander Schauffele and two-time CJ Cup winner Justin Thomas aren’t far behind at 14-1, followed by Collin Morikawa (16-1) and Rory McIlroy (20-1).
