The top eight players in the world right now will be playing at the 2020 World Golf Championships – FedEx St Jude Invitational, including newly-minted No. 1 John Rahm.

Top 3 High-Value Sleepers and Sleeper Picks and Predictions for the 2020 World Golf Championships – FedEx St Jude Invitational PGA Tournament
Where: TPC Southwind, Memphis, TN
When: July 30 to August 2, 2020
TV Broadcast: GOLFTV
Daniel Berger (+2800)
Berger is not among the top faces of the PGA Tour, but when he’s at TPC Southwind, he’s like Tiger Woods. See, Berger has won the FedEx St. Jude Classic twice. He first did it in 2016 then repeated in 2017. He failed to do a Chicago Bulls in 2018, as he missed the cut in the same tournament, thus missing on a three-peat. However, he’s clearly an established golfer at TPC Southwinds. Moreover, he’s been playing well, generally speaking, since the season restarted. He won the Charles Schwab Challenge then settled for a T3 at the RBC Heritage.
Viktor Hovland (+2800)
Hovland has been steady since the PGA Tour returned following a pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He’s made the cut in all six tournaments he’s joined since June, which includes a T11 at the Travelers Championship, a T12 at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, and a solo third at the Workday Charity Open. He had a T48 at the Memorial Tournament, the most recent event he played in. Overall this season, Hovland has a trio of top 10s and seven top 25s in 15 starts.
J.T. Poston (+15,000)
Not many people are talking about Poston right now. He’s been cold. He’s missed the cut in each of his last three starts. However, he had a T10 at the Charles Schwab Challenge and a T8 at the RBC Heritage before his current slump kicked in. He looked decent in his last start at TPC Southwinds, as he finished 18th at the 2018 FedEx St. Jude Classic in 2018. Poston has one PGA Tour victory in his career, having won the 2019 Wyndham Championship.
