My Top 6 Picks

No. 6 Bryson DeChambeau

The 27-year-old Californian made waves after showing off his post-coronavirus muscles while hitting the ball a country mile. However, DeChambeau is also pretty good in almost every other aspect of the game besides driving. He recorded nine Top-10 finishes during the 2019-20 campaign while winning the Rocket Mortgage Classic and finishing second at the WGC-Mexico Championship. Winged Foot favors those that can hit for distance off the tee – and right now, no one is better than DeChambeau who finished fourth in birdie average (4.42) and seventh in scoring average (69.2).

No. 5 Tiger Woods

While the 44-year-old Woods isn’t necessarily a favorite heading into Winged Foot, I still put nothing past the legendary champ, particularly seeing as how he’s as healthy as reasonably possible right now. Currently 63rd in the FedEx rankings, Woods has three U.S. Open wins in his career (2000, 2002, 2008) not to mention he won the Zoxo Championship this past season while finishing with a pair of Top-10 finishes. Woods can still hit for distance (299.4) and if he finds his medium and short range strokes, he could surprise in a big way.

No. 4 Xander Schauffele

The 26-year-old Californian and FedEx No. 2 has a stellar six top-10 finishes in 12 major championship appearances and although he didn;t get a win this past season, Schauffele did record seven Top-10 finishes while finishing 10th in birdie average (4.24) and an even more impressive fifth in scoring average (69.2). In short, I wouldn;t be surprised one iota to see this talented golfer win it all after recording a pair of T2 finishes in the 2018 British Open and 2019 Masters.

No. 3 Jon Rahm

The 25-year-old FedEx No. 4 recorded a stupendous eight Top-10 finishes this past season while winning the Memorial and BMW Championship. Rahm finished the 2019-20 campaign ranked 22nd in driving distance (307.6) and second in scoring average and is so talented he could shake his current label as the best golfer on the planet without a major.

No. 2 Collin Morikawa

The sweet-swinging 23-year-old Californian became the third-youngest PGA Championship winner in the stroke-play era when he won it all just last month. The FedEx No. 6 recorded seven Top-10 finishes this past season and won the Workday Charity open to finish the season with two victories. More importantly, Morikawa has a complete skill set that will allow him to keep up with the biggest drivers on tour and the best short game performers in the world.

No. 1 Dustin Johnson

The FedEx No. 1 is on fire coming into the U.S. Open. Johnson finished last season with seven Top-10 finishes and three wins, two of which have come in his last three outings, including the season-ending TOUR Championship just over a week ago. Johnson is my top pick to hoist the U.S. Open hardware and for good reason!
