The week of the 122nd US Open is here with the world’s best teeing it up beginning on Thursday, June 16th at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts. The four-day, stroke play event will crown a champion on Sunday, June 19th. This will be the fourth time The Country Club has hosted a US Open and the first since Curtis Strange defended his US Open title in 1988.
Jon Rahm is the defending champion, picking up his first major victory with a one-shot win over Louis Oosthuizen at Torrey Pines just outside of San Diego, California. Rahm became the third consecutive winner of the US Open to be a first-time major champion, joining Bryson DeChambeau and Gary Woodland.
Below we’ve put together our final three best US Open Betting predictions for the 2022 US Open.
US Open Final Predictions
No LIV Golfers will Finish in the Top 10
We have nothing against the golfers that chose to participate in the inaugural LIV Golf Series event in London last week. A handful of those players, including Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson, will be teeing it up this week at The Country Club.
Last week’s LIV golf event was a no-cut, three-day tournament that played more as an exhibition than it did a realistic golf tournament. It is hard to imagine that any of the participants at the LIV event will come to Brookline ready to challenge the best golfers in the world.
DJ has the best chance of the bunch to crack the top-10, but there is no golfer that played in London last week that scares us to crack to the first page of the leaderboard. Fade the golfers that elected to play overseas last week and put your money on those that stayed in North America to compete.
A First-Time Winner will Take Home the Title
The last three US Open champions were first-time winners and we expect that trend to continue this week. Players like Cameron Smith, Patrick Cantlay, Xander Shauffele, and Viktor Hovland are four guys that stand out searching for that first major title.
Other players with a chance to hoist the US Open Trophy and become first-time winners include Will Zalatoris, Sam Burns, Matthew Fitzpatrick, and Tony Finau. One of the players will rise to the occasion and become a major winner this week.
The Winning Score will be High
The course conditions have already been well-documented this week leading up to the first round of the US Open. The Country Club will present a challenging test to participants, with heavy rough and quick greens with a lot of undulation.
Players who played in the RBC Canadian Open last week will have a leg-up on the competition, as St. George’s will present similarities to The Country Club with narrow fairways and small green complexes.
Just two of the last ten US Open winners finished the four-day event at 10-under par or better, and we predict that low scoring will be rare again this week. Given the course conditions and the expectation that wind may play a factor during some rounds of the tournament, feel comfortable that the winning score will again be in the single digits.
