US Open 2022: Golf Betting Tips

Best Bets

Justin Thomas

Two Majors in a single year are rare these days, but not unachievable. Since 2014, Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Brooks Koepka have all achieved the feat – and two of those included the US Open.

Thomas is more than capable of achieving it. He was outstanding in winning the PGA Championship at the Gil Hanse-redesigned Southern Hills, and can do same at the Gil Hanse-redesigned Brookline Country Club.

The key to success is strong work from the tee, an accurate iron game and outstanding touch around the green – as well as a preternatural ability to save par. Thomas ranks 3rd in Strokes Gained: Tee To Green, 6th in Scrambling and 1st in Bogey Avoidance, as well as Top 15 in Strokes Gained: Off The Tee, Driving Distance and GIR.

Class prevails and Thomas combines form, class and the perfect game.

BACK — Justin Thomas at $12.0+

Sung-Jae Im

Majors have tended to be won by first timers of late and South Korean Sungjae Im looks primed to contend.

The world number 21 has already built a decent Majors record with two Top 10s and another two more Top 25s from 11 runs at the big time. He is in the prime age range of winners at 24. His game looks a great fit for Brookline too, with Im ranking Top 12 in Bogey Avoidance, Scrambling, Strokes Gained: Around The Green, Strokes Gained: Tee To Green, GIR and Total Driving.

BACK — Sung-Jae Im at $31.0+


Best Lays

Cameron Smith

Smith has reached the top echelon of pricing following his win at The Players and his T-3 at The Masters, but his form has tailed since then with a missed cut and no top 10s in his last five.

He was ordinary in the Canadian Open, and playing the week prior is not necessarily ideal, particularly for four rounds when not in contention.

Smith’s ranking of 161 in Total Driving rules him out this week and at his current price is severe unders.

LAY — Cameron Smith at < $31.0

Xander Schauffele

There is nothing about Schauffele’s game that rules him out of contention this week. He ranks 4th in Total Driving and Top 10 in Bogey Avoidance. His major form is exceptional, with nine Top 10s in 20 major starts.

He just cannot win. For a player with his talent, it is astonishing that he has not won a singles stroke play PGA Tour event since the Tournament of Champions three-and-a-half years ago.

Form not good enough to suggest he is about to turn this around.

LAY — Xander Schauffele at < $34.0

Top 5

Tony Finau

Finau is not renowned as a winner and started off the season well out of form, but he has turned it around with back-to-back Top 4s – including a 2nd at the RBC Canada, where he finished with a 62-64.

He has excellent form in the Northeastern states, with Top 8 finishes in the 2018 Northern Trust, 2018 Dell Technologies, 2019 BMW and 2020 US Open. Also ranks Top 15 in Strokes Gained: Tee To Green.

BACK — Tony Finau at $5.50+


Top 10

Corey Conners

The uber-consistent Canadian who regularly shows up in Majors. Since 2020 he has played in nine Major tournaments for five Top 17 finishes, including three inside the Top 10. He ranks 12th in Total Driving and 4th in GIR, so he has the game to succeed at Brookline.

BACK — Corey Conners at $4.80+


First Round Leader

Jordan Spieth

Jordan Spieth leads the field in strokes gained in opening rounds on Par 70 courses, 7th in first rounds on difficult courses and 14th in Round 1 scores on firm greens. He looks well suited by Brookline, ranking Top 15 in Strokes Gained: Tee To Green and Bogey Avoidance.

BACK — Jordan Spieth at $34.0+


Top Englishman

Tommy Fleetwood

The top Englishman market is dominated by Matthew Fitzpatrick, who won the US Amateur here nine years back.

Tommy Fleetwood looks well suited though. He ranks 7th in Strokes Gained: Tee To Green on the DP World Tour and 15th in Strokes Gained: Around The Green. A T-5 at the recent PGA Championship is another major push.

BACK — Tommy Fleetwood at $3.75+
