Expert tips, predictions and best bets for the 2020 US Open Championship on the PGA Tour.
The 120th US Open Golf Championship is set to begin on Thursday, September 17 after being rescheduled from its original June timeslot – Read on for our best US Open tips.
Held at the Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York between September 17th to 20, the US Open Golf Championship showcases the world’s best golfers.
The event will be played on the West course which is 7,477 yards to a Par 70. Defending champion Gary Woodland is back and this will be the first US Open that Winged Foot Golf Club has hosted since 2006 when Australian Geoff Ogilvy was victorious with a score of +5.
US Open Golf Tips and Predictions: Best Bet ?
World number one Dustin Johnson is on fire at the moment with his last four events seeing him finish T2nd, 1st, 2nd and 1st. His two wins came in The Northern Trust with a whopping 11-stroke victory and the Tour Championship with a three-stroke win.
The tour stats showcase Johnson’s dominance as he sits:
• 7th in Birdies
• 8th in Scoring Average
• 11th SG: Off The Tee
• 9th SG: Tee To Green
• 3rd in Putting Average
His dominance could see him completely outplay his opposition and it’s hard to go past him as the top pick to win his second US Open Championship.
US Open Tips and Predictions: Best Value ?
The field is full of top players which makes finding the best value plays that little more difficult. Webb Simpson has put together some nice performances with a T3 result at the Wyndham Championship, T6 at The Northern Trust and T12 at the Tour Championship.
Simpson won the US Open back in 2012 with a +1 at the Olympic Club, Lake Course. Since the PGA Tour restart, Simpson leads the tour in adjusted scoring, par-4 scoring, putts per GIR and bogey avoidance. From the last eight events, he also boasts a win and three top 10s. He won the RBC Heritage in June.
Our next value pick is Tony Finau. Four top 10 performances from the past seven events, which includes finishing fifth in the BMW Championship. He has eight top 15 finishes in Majors and his stats suggest he could have a good tournament with rankings of 11th SG: Tee To Green, 21st SG: Approach The Green and 23rd in Putting Average.
US Open Tips and Predictions: Roughie ?
Looking for a complete roughie to take out the US Open? Then don’t look past Harris English who was second in the Northern Trust behind Dustin Johnson. He also has six top 20 performances from his last eight events which shows he is playing well. Rankings of 18th for both SG: Putting and SG: Tee To Green, along with 3rd in Bogey Avoidance. That form looks good and he is worth an each-way ticket.
