The third major of the 2019 golf season is here.
2019 U.S. Open begins on Thursday at 9:45 a.m. ET from Pebble Beach in California.
Dustin Johnson is the current betting favorite at 7-1 with two-time defending champion Brooks Koepka right behind him at 8-1. Koepka, who won the PGA Championship last month, was the favorite to win at Pebble Beach for most of the past month, but he’s since drifted a little bit at the Westgate SuperBook.
Tiger Woods is hanging around near the top of the board at 10-1, the same odds as Rory McIlroy. Jordan Spieth, who all of a sudden is in good form, is tied with Patrick Cantlay at 16-1.
My pick to win the 2019 US Open is the former US Open winner Dustin Johnson. DJ has finished 2nd in both of this years major (The Masters & PGA Championship) and no one is playing better than likely the other main favorite Brooke Koepka. DJ is due to get back into the major wins and he has played this course well in the past. I expect DJ and Brooks to stay atop the leaderboard all weekend long!
Of the many courses Johnson has dominated over the years, Pebble Beach is near the top of the list. He owns two wins at the AT&T Pro-Am and led the U.S. Open here by three entering the final round in 2010, only to post an 82 and lose by five. Despite his 20 career PGA Tour wins, he still isn’t immune to Sunday blunders, but DJ is a more mature player now than he was back then. Expect him to be right in the mix this week, too. Not only does he own runner-up finishes at each of the year’s first two majors, his last five U.S. Open results are an eye-popping 3-MC-1-2-4.Follow Us Here:
