One of professional golfing’s crown jewels, the 2015 US Open, takes place, starting Thursday, June 17, at the Chambers Bay Golf Club at University Place, in Washington State. Here are five favorites, that have an excellent chance to win the 2015 US Open, and are popular with golf betting public. Early odds for US Open golf betting is as follows:
Rory McIlroy: 4-1
Hailed by the masses to be to the premier golfer in the world today, its of no surprise that the 2011 United States Open Champion, along with three other major tournaments, is the odds-on favorite to place at the top of leaders board at the conclusion of 72 holes. His most recent victory came at the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina, at 21 under. At age 26, Rory McIlroy will be teeing up his seventh appearance at the U.S. Open, and has the honor of being the youngest golfer to win the Open, since 1923, when Booby Jones was crowned champion. The Official World Golf Rankings has him at rated as # 1.
Jordan Spieth: 7-1
Donning the green jacket for the very first time, with his victory at the 2015 Masters, in Augusta, Georgia, Jordan Spieth now turns his attention to winning the U.S Open, with early odds opening at 7:1. Spieth, at the young age of 21, is the second youngest player to win at Augusta, with Tiger Woods the other. Since The Masters victory, Spieth took runner-up in the Crowne Plaza Invitational, at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas and placed third at the Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, posting a respectable 275, 13 under tally.
Tiger Woods: 14-1
What more can be said about Tiger that isn’t already known. He’s having a terrible year, as his injuries continue to hinder his stroke. Quite honestly, you don’t know what to expect until he tee’s off on Sunday. Anything is possible.
Dustin Johnson: 14-1
Though he has early odds of 14-1, Dustin John merits dubious consideration, in his quest for the leader, at the end of the 18th hole on Sunday, at the U.S. Open. Encountering some serious issues away from the greens, and fairways, Dustin Johnson has worked hard to overcome these setbacks and continues to play amongst the best. Near the top of the leader board in many major tournaments over the years, Dustin Johnson sewed up a nice victory at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, at the TPC Blue Monster at Doral, in Florida, finishing with 279 strokes, at nine under.
Adam Scott: 16-1
Finally realizing a breakout victory at the 2013 Masters, Adam Scott, discretely tossed into the dumpster the label of being the best golfer never victorious in a major event. He followed up that performance with a 9th place finish in the U.S. Open. Keeping pace with a breakneck schedule, Adam Scott has 27 tournament victories in his trophy case. His best finish as of late, is at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, at the TPC Blue Monster, where he placed fourth, to Dustin Johnson.
