Odds To Win The US Open 2017

Odds To Win The US Open 2017
Erin Hills, site of the 2017 US Open

With the US Open just 138 days away (yes, I counted), here are the currents odds to win the US Open 2017 at Erin Hills.

As an aside, I played Erin Hills last summer and think that it will be an incredible challenge. The course can play very long — up to 7.800 yards, and has as much as 54 feet in elevation changes (that’s a five story building). Rolling fairways, a treeless expanse and seas of fescue should produce a great US Open.

Leading the odds to win the US Open are Jason Day and Rory McIlroy each coming in at 8/1. Both hit the ball a long way, and on a course as long as Erin Hills, that is a decided advantage.

Another long hitter, Dustin Johnson, is in at 9/1. Jordan Spieth, not a notably long hitter, is in at 10/1. His putting and short game should stand him in good stead on Erin Hills tricky greens complexes.

Hideki Matsuyama, whose ball striking may be the best right now on tour, is in at 20/1.

Henrik Stenson and Tiger Woods are in at 25/1. Stenson, I understand. But Tiger? Perhaps his performance in the next four or five weeks will cause me to reassess Tiger’s chances.

Rounding out the top group are Rickie Fowler, Adam Scott and Phil Mickelson at 28/1. Of the three, I think Rickie is actually the most likely, if for no other reason than he’s due. I don’t know what to think about Adam Scott these days. He won the Masters in 2013, but has not been a steady player in Majors since. He had a T3 in the Open and T5 in the PGA in 2013, but since then, his best finish was in 2015 at the US Open when he finished T5. His average finish in Majors since the Masters win has been 21.

Phil is just Phil. I would love to see him win a US Open, but fear that he is destined to be another Sam Snead — ever so close, but just not able to close the deal.
