This week's Palmetto Championship replaces the Canadian Open on the schedule. The 2020 and 2021 Canadian Internationals were canceled due to Canada's COVID-19 restrictions.

The Congaree Golf Club is located in lower Gillionsville, South Carolina, approximately 75 miles southwest of Charleston.

It is a Tom Fazio design that opened in 2018. A lot of land has been moved to build this course which was built on a former plantation estate.

Congaree was built for the modern game, as it stretches for 7,685 yards and a par 71.

The fairways and greens are Bermuda. There is no rude in the field. The wide fairways make this look an easy test right from the start, as long as you don't get too lost in the sandy waste areas.

Number one Dustin Johnson and number seven Brooks Koepka are the only top 10 players in the official world golf course rankings, and the DJ is from South Carolina.

The US Open will be held across the country in Southern California on a totally different style field at Torrey Pines. Unless not qualified or in need of FedEx Cup points, it makes sense for a player to skip the trip to Congaree.

Fatigue can be an important factor to consider as it could complicate the game for golfers. Players can also opt out of the Palmetto Championship by reserving their spot at Torrey Pines on Monday. Something to keep in mind if you want to set up your DFS alignment ahead of time.

TOP 3 PLAYERS

BROOKS KOEPKA

External expectations were low for Brooks Koepka to enter the PGA Championship. Koepka fought admirably in a tough march on Kiawah Island to fight for four days. He couldn't deny Phil's dream tournament, settling for second place. He was his third runner-up in a major tournament with all four of his wins.

Koepka in no major is a completely different beast, as we know. He may need more rest before Torrey Pines, but he's a guy who often enjoys playing the week before a major tournament and these will be his first replays since the PGA.

A win would bring No. 8 Koepka closer to his old friend, No. 5 Bryson DeChambeau, on the world rankings. Koepka has a more balanced statistical profile than in recent seasons.

Koepka is also a 2021 winner at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

DUSTIN JOHNSON

Dustin Johnson is playing in his home country for the second time in a row. The last time it was not as the South Carolinian expected when he missed the cut last month at the PGA Championship on Kiawah Island.

There is no question that Johnson is falling apart. At least by his high standards. He has made strides again in 2021 with three top 15s in his last seven events.

Former Coastal Carolina Chanticleer bent the knee from retiring from AT&T Byron Nelson before the PGA Championship. He may just want the rest before the PGA, but it's easy to speculate if he's not 100%.

All you need is a good performance and it is very easy to become a DJ again by winning your second U.S. Open next week.

MATT FITZPATRICK

The Englishman has eight top-25s in 12 starts between the European Tour and primarily the PGA Tour. He also won the one of the last event of 2020, the DP World Tour Championship. The 26-year-old continued his fine form in South Carolina by posting the T-23 in the PGA Championship.

In February and March, he finished four times in a row in the top 11, all in high-profile events.

Fitzy is a six-time Euro Tour winner. The former Northwestern Wildcat is aiming for his first win on the PGA Tour. The Palmetto Championship is a golden opportunity to win on American soil at a new field in Congaree that can be hospitable to shorter hitters like him.
