The 2022 U.S. Open begins with the first tee time at 7:45 a.m. EST on Thursday, June 16, at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts. This marks the fourth time the club has hosted the U.S. Open, with the last three times occurring in 1988, 1963, and 1913.
The par-70 course features four par-3s and only two par-5s, one of which (hole 8) should be driveable in two at only 557 yards long. Curtis Strange won the 1988 U.S. Open at The Country Club with a -7, but the course has undergone dramatic upgrades and renovations since then.
One of the most historic tournaments in golf, this year’s U.S. Open, has been somewhat sabotaged by all the talk of the LIV Golf Tour. Suspended PGA Tour players Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, and Kevin Na, among others, are participating in the U.S. Open after skipping last weekend’s memorable Canadian Open to playing in the three-round LIV event in London. That said, let’s have a final look at the latest odds so you can make your sure to bet against the US Open Betting Lines.

The Favorites – McIlroy (+1000), Thomas (+1200), and Rahm (+1500)
It’s no surprise to see McIlroy and Thomas as the betting favorites to win the 122nd U.S. Open. Both players battled to the final hole of last week’s RBC Canadian Open, with McIlroy emerging victorious to claim his 21st tournament victory on the PGA Tour, which he subsequently noted was one more than LIV Golf figurehead Greg Norman.
McIlroy, currently ranked No. 3 in the world rankings and No. 4 in the FedEx Cup rankings, has finished top-10 in four of his last five tournaments.
Thomas, meanwhile, is No. 5 and No. 3 in the world and FedEx Cup rankings, respectively. He’s also playing some of the best golf of his season right now. McIlroy tees off at 8:40 a.m. EST Thursday, while Thomas begins his round at 2:14 p.m. EST.
Rahm, the defending champion, tees off at 8:18 a.m. EST. He won the Mexico Open at Vidanta in early May but has struggled at majors this year with a T-27 finish at the Masters and a T-48 finish at the PGA Championship.
Underdog Picks – Sam Burns (+2700), Shane Lowry (+3000), and Tony Finau (+3400)
Sam Burns, a 25-year-old native of Shreveport, Louisiana, is having a breakthrough season on the PGA Tour and looks like someone who could contend with the bigger names this weekend. Ranked No. 2 in the FedEx Cup rankings, Burns finished T-4 at last weekend’s RBC Canadian Open and won the Charles Schwab Challenge the weekend prior.
Burns also won the Valspar Open this season but has missed the cut at several tournaments. He’s hit or miss but is playing incredible golf right now and is definitely worth a look at +2700.
Shane Lowry, the winner of the 2019 Open Championship, finished T-10 at the RBC Canadian Open last weekend and was T-3 at the Masters. He’s a solid bet as an underdog pick to win his second major.
Tony Finau is another decent sleeper bet. He was right there with McIlroy and Thomas for much of the final round at the RBC Canadian Open and shot 62-64 to close out the tournament and secure his second consecutive top-5 finish.
