- Jordan Spieth 7/1 – He’ll be hard to ignore after the meltdown at Augusta. The guess is that he’ll be fired up to prove that he didn’t let the meltdown affect him.
- Rory McIlroy 8/1 – Rory always goes off at low odds in every tournament in which he plays. He won the U.S. Open in 2011. He finished at +1, tied 10th, at the Masters. I don’t know. The odds seem too low.
- Jason Day 8/1 – Jason Day played okay at the Masters with a +1. Oakmont might flatter him more. If it comes down to Rory or Day, at this point, you have to go with Day.
- Dustin Johnson 15/1 – Johnson got his swing back at Augusta. He shot an excellent -1 to tie for 3rd place. But, Oakmont is considered the most difficult course in the U.S. DJ could have a bad time.
- Rickie Fowler 20/1 – He seemed to implode at Augusta. He missed the cut after an 80 Round 1 and a 73 Round 2. Unless he picks it up from here until U.S. Open Week, he’s hard to back at 20 to 1.
- Adam Scott 20/1 – Scott shot a +18 and didn’t make the cut in 2007, the last time that they played the U.S. Open at Oakmont. 20 to 1 odds are just too low.
- Justin Rose 20/1 – At +11, Rose was only 6 strokes off of winner Angel Cabrera in 2007. He could surprise this year.
- Bubba Watson 30/1 – Watson shot an excellent +9 in 2007. When the winner is at +5, +9 isn’t bad at all. Since Watson has already traversed the dangers of Oakmont, he’s a possible play at the odds.
- Hideki Matsuyama 30/1 – I love how Matsuyama’s game has come around. But newbies to Oakmont usually don’t play well. He’s going to have to head to Pennsylvania in excellent form.
- Henrik Stenson 30/1 – Stenson’s +15 didn’t get him to Day 3 in 2007. Unless he steps it up big time, he’s a play against.
- Danny Willett 30/1 – Willett’s hot after winning the Masters. But he’s still never stepped onto the Oakmont course. I have to pass.
- Phil Mickelson 30/1 – Lefty failed to make the cut at the Masters. He also missed the cut at Oakmont in 2007. He’s hard to back at 30 to 1 because due to his age, he’ll have to work extra hard to get the swing right.
