Golf: US Open

The US Open is the 2nd Major of 2015 and that is just about all we can be certain of at this point with the course somewhat of a mystery for players and punters alike.

Chambers Bay, on the Washington state coast, was the venue for the 2010 US Amateur Championship but it is generally expected to play much differently to the way it did that week.

Phil Mickelson described it as ‘a modern day links golf course’ and added ‘i really like it. i think it’s wonderful’.

Phil might be in a minority if he still shares that view after round one. 

Visually it looks like an Open Championship course rather than a US Open course.

Hideki Matsuyama is a player we have tipped to win Major championships on these pages and it would be no surprise if he is bang in contention come Sunday night. 

His current form is excellent with top 20’s in each of his last four starts. He finished 10th in the US Open last year and 6th in his debut at the Open.

Brandt Snedeker tops my ratings for this week – using current form, US Open form and Open form – and comes into this tournament in top form with recent figures of 17, mc, 2, 6 while his US Open form reads 8, 11, 17, 9. 

He also has some Open Championship form in the locker with a 3rd placed finish in 2012 and an 11th in 2013.

Billy Horschel‘s recent form reads 17, 13, 11, 8 which reads like one of those maths questions we all faced at some point at school. I’m not sure the next number should be a 1 but it could turn out that way. He finished 4th in the 2013 US Open.

Byeong Hun An has been a revelation this season and his lack of experience of the course did not stop him winning the European Tour’s flagship event, the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, last month. 

He made his Open debut last year and finished a creditable 26th at Hoylake.

Branden Grace is an excellent links course golfer who is showing signs of returning to his best form. He finished 11th in his most recent start and his best finish in the US this year was at the links course at Harbour Town.

Colin Montgomery has won 3 Majors on the seniors tour and ranks inside the top 10 of my ratings this week. He won his penultimate start and finished 3rd last time out. He is an excellent links player.

Michael Putnam is one player who really knows this course as he grew up just a mile from the course. he writes extensively about the course here http://www.pgatour.com/news/2015/05/27/putnams-chambers-bay.html

Top Englishman

Andy Sullivan is another player that has made great strides in 2015, this time on the European Tour. He will play this week with a smile on his face, something that some of the top players might not.

He is over-priced at $17 with Screenshot 2014-05-03 13.10.10 and is worth a unit each way in an 11 ‘runner’ race paying 1st three places
