The 2023 Genesis Scottish Open will begin on Thursday, with a tremendous field in place. In addition to top-tier PGA Tour players, 75 players from the DP World Tour are in action for an event co-sanctioned by both tours. In fact, some of the best of the best will take part, headlined by Scottie Scheffler, Rory McIlroy, and Patrick Cantlay. The Open Championship also looms next week, with many players using this event as a partial tune-up for a major competition.

In addition to the top players, does fan favorite Max Homa project as an interesting inclusion among your 2023 Scottish Open fantasy golf picks? Before you consider your 2023 Genesis Scottish Open fantasy golf picks or PGA Tour bets, you have to see the Scottish Open fantasy rankings from SportsLine handicapper Eric Cohen.

2023 Genesis Scottish Open expert picks
Cohen is seeing intriguing value on Tommy Fleetwood this week. While Fleetwood hasn’t won in the United States, this event is taking place abroad, where Fleetwood has seven international wins and five runner-up finishes on his ledger. Fleetwood also has success in this event, with a top-five finish a year ago and a runner-up in 2020. Fleetwood should be comfortable in this setting, and Cohen also believes his “form is outstanding” right now. That includes three top-five finishes in the last six outings, and Fleetwood is in the top 10 of the PGA Tour in scoring average, strokes gained: total, and strokes gained: tee-to-green.
At the same time, Cohen is fading Rory McIlroy. McIlroy’s ceiling is incredibly high, and he is always a threat to win. However, Cohen prefers other value options, especially with the way McIlroy is being priced. He is outside the top 100 in one-putt percentage, driving accuracy percentage and scrambling this season. McIlroy is also No. 86 on the PGA Tour in strokes gained: putting, and he missed a cut in this event back in 2021. See all of Cohen’s picks at SportsLine.
