2017 US Open Tips

This week's track looks like an absolute picture as the par-72 course weighs in at nigh-on 7,700 yards and it is defending champion Dustin Johnson who heads here as an 8/1 favourite with Betfred.

Johnson won this title at Oakmont twelve months and he will now bid to become the first player to win back-to-back US Opens since 1989, with the world number one potentially in for a very big week as he and his partner are expecting the birth of their second child.

Johnson ticks plenty of boxes this week as length off thee and scrambling are likely to be key statistics, although we await to see how the new arrival affects his preparation!

Jason Day has endured a tough year following his mother's health scare but thankfully she is on the mend and the Australian's own form on the golf course is much-improved, with Day following a runner-up effort at the Byron Nelson with a strong finish to tie for 15th at The Memorial.

Day tends to peak for the second major of the year as he has finished in the top-ten in five of his last six US Open appearances and he could well be the pick of the leading fancies at 14/1.

Rory McIlroy is also available at 14/1 despite the fact the 2011 US Open winner has only made five appearances this season and we haven't seen him in action since a tie for 35th at The Players.

Finally, 2015 US Open winner Jordan Spieth can be backed at 14/1 too but his lack of length off the tee might count against him at Erin Hills.

Another First Time Major Winner?

It is worth noting that the past five major winners have all been 'first-timers', which perhaps bodes well for the highly rated Jon Rahm. Since tying for 23rd at the US Open in 2016, Rahm has played in 21 events and has racked up one win, seven top-five finishes and four other top-tens. Rahm is a major winner-in-waiting but he is very short at 22/1.

Rickie Fowler remains the best player on the planet who is yet to win a major but could this be his year? Paddy Power price him 22/1.

Hideki Matsuyama (30/1) would have been many people's pick to win a major at the start of 2017 but his form has cooled a bit of late, albeit he has racked up nine top-20 finishes in his past sixteen major tournaments, including a tie for 11th at The Masters earlier this year.

Major Winners To Follow Up?

The US Open rarely springs a surprise as the cream tends to rise to the top and Adam Scott looks like a very nice price at 33/1 (Betfred.com). The 2013 US masters winner has finished 9th-4th-18th in his past three appearances at the US Open so he does seem to peak at this time of the campaign and his recent form would suggest that he is building nicely for Erin Hills.

Henrik Stenson's form has also picked up and the 2016 Open Championship winner is available at 30/1, while Sergio Garcia can be backed at 25/1 as he prepares for his first major since his famous win at the US Masters.

Justin Rose (25/1) lost out to Garcia in a play-off at Augusta but the Olympic champion is an obvious threat and it is telling that he has secured five top-ten finishes in major tournaments since becoming the first English winner of the US Open in 43 years in 2013.
