Early 2022 U.S. Open Preview | PGA Tour Betting
The Country Club in Brookline, MA., hosts next year’s event 107 years after hosting the U.S. Open in 1913, won by American amateur golfer Francis Ouimet. This will be the fourth time The Country Club has hosted a U.S. Open. The course has hosted numerous other high-profile events, including the 1999 Ryder Cup, 2013 U.S. Amateur, and 1995 Women’s U.S. Amateur.
There are 27 holes on the property made up of the original Clyde and Squirrel nines, and the Primrose executive nine added later. For the 2022 U.S. Open, the course uses the nine from Primrose course, along with a combination of holes from the original holes. The 18 holes will stretch 7,312 yards and play as a par-70.
Early Betting Odds
The early betting odds are out, and big names litter the top of the board. Current U.S. Open Jon Rahm tops the list at +900. A victory by Rahm would make him the seventh golfer in the tournament’s history, with Brooks Koepka most recently accomplishing the feat in 2017 and 2018.
2011 U.S. Open winner Rory McIlroy comes in at +1100. McIlroy hasn’t won a major since 2014 but has finished in the top 10 in the last three events. The 32-year old heads into the FedEx Cup playoffs with 15 of 18 cuts made this season, including six top-10s and a victory at the Wells Fargo in May.
Rounding out the top three is Dustin Johnson, who won his first major title in 2016 at the U.S. Open held at Oakmont. Johnson hasn’t done a whole lot since his Masters’ victory in the fall of 2020, cracking the top-10 only four times in 15 events. DJ is another player with a strong history of success at the U.S. Open, with six top-10 finishes in 14 attempts.
Behind Johnson is two-time U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka (+1400). Over the last four U.S. Open’s, Johnson has finished first, first, second, T4. After missing the cut at the Masters following surgery this year, the four-time major winner finished T2 at the PGA Championship, T4 at the U.S. Open, and T6 at The Open Championship.
Bryson DeChambeau and Xander Schauffele fill out the top five, with both having early odds at +1600. DeChambeau won his first and only major championship at the U.S. Open in 2020, while Schauffele is still on the hunt for his first major victory. Schauffele’s finishes in his five U.S. Open’s is impressive, with his worst a T7 this year.
