After winning the PGA Championship last month, Brooks Koepka emerged as the early favorite to win the U.S. Open. Since then, we’ve seen some changes in the odds. Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy have jumped over Koepka. DJ has performed consistently well at Pebble Beach, winning the Pro-Am twice. If it wasn’t for a major collapse on the final day in 2010, he could’ve won the U.S. Open there, as he was leading the pack after the third round. For Rory, it’s a matter of recent form. He has 10 of 13 top-10 finishes this season, the most on tour. Fresh off of a win last weekend, McIlroy will look to ride the momentum to his second U.S. Open victory.
If we’re talking about recent form, we have to mention Patrick Cantlay. He’s coming off of a victory at the Memorial Tournament, while also finishing T3 in two of three tournaments prior. The 27-year-old has finished in the top 10 of both majors this season. Cantlay’s name didn’t even break the top 12 favorites when the odds initially were released for the U.S. Open, but he’s clearly on a mission to win his first ever major title and that has been reflected in the odds.
Whenever Pebble Beach is the venue, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson have to be in the conversation. Woods is the fourth-biggest favorite heading into the tournament, but Mickelson is 20th at +4500. As of late, Phil has been poor on the tour, missing the cut in four of his past nine appearances. But he’s been solid on this course in the past, winning here as recently as February at the Pro-Am. No one is ruling Tiger Woods out, nor should anyone rule out Phil Mickelson.
