Match Preview

The latest major action on the golf schedule this year will take place across the coming weekend, as the US Open is staged at Pinehurst Resort. It is the richest of the four majors on the schedule, with a purse of $20 million up for grabs this weekend. The stroke play event will cover a total distance of 7,550 yards, with a field of 156 players involved.

The record aggregate score at the competition was set back in 2011, as Rory McIlroy finished with a total of 268. McIlroy also jointly holds the par record alongside Brooks Koepka, with both players finishing 16-under. However, McIlroy will need a return to form this weekend if he is to challenge for major success after only finishing in a tie for 15th at the recent Memorial Tournament.

Scottie Scheffler once again flexed his muscles in that event, claiming a 14th professional victory on the tour. The top-ranked player in the world will be hard to oppose this weekend, as he goes in search of a third major championship. His previous best showing at the US Open came back in 2023 when finishing in a tie for second.

Bryson DeChambeau finished a close second in the PGA Championship in the previous major on the schedule, and he has previous winning experience at the US Open after finishing six shots clear of Matthew Wolff in 2020. Brooks Koepka is another player that is hard to dismiss after winning the major in 2017 and 2018.


US Open Prediction

We like two players in the event this weekend. Tommy Fleetwood has finished in the top ten in three of the last four majors, and has claimed solid finishes at the US Open throughout his career. Collin Morikawa has also been in consistent form this year, and he could be a solid chance to win a third major championship.

Free Pick:

  • Collin Morikawa
  • Tommy Fleetwood
