The game of golf has rarely been at the forefront level that it is currently at. With the PGA Tour and LIV battling currently and players shifting around, we are in for a ride with the future of golf. It was announced earlier that players leaving the PGA Tour will still be allowed to play in majors and next week at the U.S. Open.
The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts is the site for the 2022 U.S. Open. World number one Scottie Scheffler is headlining the event, along with Jon Rahm, the winner of last year’s U.S. Open. For the third major of the year, it will be exciting to see if we have a new champion or a repeating champion.
It’s time to take a look at some of the top players in the field, who to expect to play and who could be a surprise next week to win the U.S. Open. Let’s get right to it soy can continue with your US Open Betting.
U.S. Open Field: Favorites and Surprises | PGA Tour Betting
As announced by Tiger Woods on Twitter, he will not be playing next week in Brookline. Woods last played at the PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club. After making the cut, Woods shot a third-round 79 and ended up withdrawing from the tournament.
The next possible time we could see Woods is at St. Andrew’s for The Open.
Scottie Scheffler, Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy and Collin Morikawa
There are four players currently tied for the best odds in the U.S. Open. The World number one player, the reigning champion, a former champion and a young gun looking for his first U.S. Open are at the top of the betting board.
Scottie Scheffler is still one of the hottest golfers on the planet currently. He most recently lost in a playoff at the Charles Schwab Challenge. Scheffler won the first major of the year at Augusta National and is playing good golf coming into the tournament next week.
Jon Rahm is a favorite as the reigning champion after his victory last year at Torrey Pines. Rahm was the number one player in the world until Scheffler had his hot start to the season. Rahm is coming off a win recently at the Mexico Open and would love to go back-to-back as the U.S. Open Champion.
Rory McIlroy is looking for his second career U.S. Open victory and McIlroy has been making a run of good golf as of late. After a missed cut at the Valero Open, McIlroy has four-straight top 20 finishes with three being top 10 finishes.
It has been a much quieter season for Collin Morikawa so far. The young gun won another leg of the career grand slam last year as the Champion Golfer of the Year. A win next week for Morikawa would complete three of the four legs.
Matthew Fitzpatrick +3000
A surprise or a player to watch for next week is Matthew Fitzpatrick. The young British player is still looking for his first major but has come so close many times. He made a run most recently at the PGA Championship but fell short of the eventual winner, Justin Thomas.
Max Homa +6600
One of the most consistent golfers on tour this season has been Max Homa. He just broke a record most recently for the fewest number of putts in a four round tournament with 99 putts. This could be the breakthrough performance that Homa needs to take the next step in his golfing career.
