With the mayhem and carnage about to take place at Shinnecock, we are all gearing up for another epic major. Phil going for the slam, Tiger making his return to the US Open, Spieth, Rory, DJ, JT, Rickie, Rose, the list is endless. Whatta time to be a golf fan.
We have a lot to look forward to and a ton of storylines. If you are betting futures, the weather forecast favors Thursday morning/Friday afternoon groups heading into the weekend due to the others getting 20 MPH winds, 30 MPH gusts.
In a normal world the low ball hitter or golfers who do well at the Open would do well in those conditions, which would eliminate a Jason Day. But golf is insanely unpredictable. A lot of stuff that happens makes zero sense.
Patrick Reed winning the Masters for instance. He had one top 10 in 16 majors and his Masters history was cut, 22nd, 49th, cut. You can make educated guesses but a lot of times it doesn’t add up on the bottom line.

Jon Rahm -130 4 units over Sergio Garcia
Emiliano Grillo -120 3 units over Keegan Bradley
Tommy Fleetwood -110 2 units over Alexander Noreen
