Posted by Derrick Harper on September 16, 2020 in

Better late than never. That’s what the golf world is thinking this week as the US Open is upon us. It may have taken a few extra months, but Winged Foot will host its first US Open since 2006. Let’s take a look at some of the favorites along with some sleeper picks for this weekend’s US Open so you can place your bets against their Golf odds.

The 144-man field will ascend upon Mamaroneck, NY, starting Thursday in search of one of this season’s three major championships.

Winged Foot is a par-70 course measuring 7,477 yards. This is a long course that favors the long hitters. However, Winged Foot’s fairways are very narrow, so the long hitters will need to keep the ball on the fairway to take advantage of their length.

With rough that is very tough to get out of, this course will be quite difficult to play this weekend.

Dustin Johnson +850

Johnson is on a roll right now. He has finished in first or second in his last four events, including winning the FedEx Cup. In his last six US Opens, he has four top-five finishes.

Johnson is a very long hitter, and if he can keep the ball in the fairway, he has a great shot at winning another major.

Jon Rahm +1000

Rahm is another long hitter who can tame this tough course. Rahm has wins at Muirfield Village and Olympia Fields this year, and they are set up much like Winged Foot. If Rahm can stay focused, he will have a great chance at winning his first major title here.

Xander Schauffele +1400

Schauffele has never finished outside of the top 10 at the US Open during his career. Schauffele has had a good season and will be looking forward to playing at Winged Foot.

He is a resilient player, and even when things go wrong for him, he still seems to hang around.

Webb Simpson +2800

While 2020 has been tough on many, it has been very kind to Simpson. With two victories and four top-10 finishes, he has had a very successful year. A previous US Open champion, Simpson has the game to compete here.

Adam Scott +4000

Scott’s short game and iron play make him a value pick here. Scott hasn’t played much golf this season, but he has traditionally played well at the US Open, finishing in the top 20 in four of his last six.

Matthew Fitzpatrick +4800

The former US Amateur Open champ has had success on Winged Foot-like courses this season. In finishing in the top 10 at Muirfield Village and Olympia Fields, Fitzpatrick has shown that he has the type of game to compete here. In three of his last five starts, he has finished inside the top 10.

Phil Mickelson +10000

Mickelson has never won a US Open. He has played poorly as of late, so wouldn’t it be great to see him finally win one at the age of 50?

He has finished second in the Open on six different occasions. Could this finally be his time?
