US Open Golf Betting Tips 2016
The toughest week on tour is back, and the world’s best have all travelled to Oakmont Country Club in Pennsylvania for the 2016 US Open.
This week is going to be a very long week for the players as they come up against incredibly challenging conditions and a course set up to trip them up.
Last year Jordan Spieth managed to win his second consecutive Major with a fantastic one-shot victory at the tricky Chambers Bay. He was of course helped out by a short missed putt from Dustin Johnson.
This year’s US Open is being played at Oakmont Country Club where Angel Cabrera won in 2007 with a score of 5 over par – scoring is going to be just as tough this season, with heavy rough lining fairways that lead to super quick greens with severe slopes.
So hitting fairways this week so as to be able to get the ball onto the greens in the correct spot is going to be vital.
The big three of Jordan Spieth, Jason Day and Rory McIlroy are the favourites with the bookies at all around 7/1. But their short odds mean that many of the other players in the field are very favorably priced.
As it is a Major week, I have picked a few extra picks than I usually would.

US Open Golf Betting Tips 2016 Advised Bets
Dustin Johnson 5 points each way 16/1 – Has been so close in US Opens before, no more so than last year, where he had a putt to win the Championship. Is hitting the ball as well as anyone and can keep it out of the thick stuff.
Phil Mickelson 3 points each way at 28/1 – Has famously never won a US Open but has had six second-place finishes. Suddenly looks to be bang in form going into this event with a 2nd place finish at the St. Jude Classic. Could it finally be his year?
Hideki Matsuyama 3 points each way at 33/1 – I am very excited for the chances of this man from Japan. Already won once this season in America and has had five top 10s in total. Has the game to outlast the rest of the field here.
Matthew Fitzpatrick 2 points each way at 55/1 – The young Englishman is very straight off the tee and that should keep him in good a place this week. Won just a fortnight ago and also had a top 10 at the Masters.
Shane Lowry 1 point each way at 80/1 – The Irishman put in a good showing at the US Open last season with a 9th place finish, he has also won a WGC event since then. Is one of the best drivers on Tour, and perhaps vitally he is also someone who will never give up. I feel this is excellent value for someone with his CV.
Danny Lee 1 point each way at 125/1 – The kiwi is another excellent driver of a ball and has a huge amount of talent. A couple of top 10s this season to go along with his 8 top 10s last season. A good prospect at this price.
Keegan Bradley 1 point each way at 150/1 – Has really struggled since changing from his long putter, however his ball striking is still as good as it has ever been. This week putting may be less important as usual, due to how tricky it may be to get your ball onto the short stuff.
