Top Five to Consider for Betting the 2022 U.S. Open

With two majors in the books, it’s time to look ahead to the 2022 U.S. Open at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts. The tournament tees off on Thursday, June 16th, and ends on Sunday, June 19th. The four-day event features the strongest players in the world, along with a large field of qualifying players through USGA sanctioned local and final events.


The Country Club presents a unique challenges for the players in the field. The course will look a lot different from when Curtis Strange won the U.S. Open at the course in 1988, playing as a par-70 instead of a par-71 and stretch over 7,200 yards. One of the oldest golf courses in the United States, you’ll have tight fairways and small greens throughout the property.


We have chosen five players below to consider betting on as the tournament nears. Let’s dive into the individuals and why it might be in your best interest to jump on.


5. Will Zalatoris

Zalatoris has shown in a small sample size that he can get it going in big tournaments. The 25-year-old has finished inside the top-10 in five of his first seven major events, including a T6 at the U.S. Open in 2020. His T6 at Augusta and solo second at the PGA Championship make Zalatoris a solid option at The Country Club.


4. Rory McIlroy


After 18 holes at the PGA Championship, it appeared that McIlroy had everything going to capture his fifth major and first since 2014. Things didn’t go as planned, and Rory settled for a solo eighth finish. Like Zalatoris, Rory has a pair of T10 finishes in the two majors this season.


3. Jon Rahm


You can’t leave off this list the defending U.S. Open winner and second-ranked golfer in the world. Rahm has the game you want to have when playing this tournament and has shown he knows how to navigate a USGA setup with three T25 finishes in a row.


His two major appearances this season have been rather underwhelming with finishes outside the top-25, but a win at the Mexico Open a month ago gives us hope for back-to-back U.S. Open titles.


2. Scottie Scheffler


The hottest name in golf in the last six months, Scheffler has sored up the world rankings to no. 1 on the list. Four wins, including his first major, to go along with four additional top-10 finishes is truly remarkable.


He missed the cut at the PGA Championship but bounced back with almost his fifth victory of the season at the Charles Schwab Challange, losing to Sam Burns in a playoff.


1. Justin Thomas


Fresh off his PGA Championship victory, the two-time major winner will come into Brookline as one of the betting favorites. Thomas has been one of the most consistent golfers this season, with eight top-10 finishes in 14 events. The 29-year-old has placed T32 or better in five of his last six U.S. Open appearances.
