    The next Major this year the U.S. Open is on from June 14th to the 17th at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, Southampton, New York with a purse of $12,000,000. We can expect a lot of great golf as always but who do you think is going to win?

    Hi , glad to see a golf page up , im an avid punter myself and post a lot on a sister forum that you may or may not know about , pretty sure you know where i mean 🙂

    Shinnecock is one of the toughest golf courses in America , with a combined score of -5 from the last 3 open winners , if the wind blows this tournament could be won at level par over 72 holes .

    i done a google search of tough US courses the other day and what i read was laughable and makes me wonder how some of these golf writers actually got the job , mentioned many times was Sawgrass that Webb Simpson and many others behind him ripped apart a couple of weeks ago , and very little mention of brute’s such as Oakmont or Winged Foot or Shinnecock that will bring players to their knees as history has proven .

    i do not see a young gun winning this , i see a more mature winner that knows how to grind it out over the distance , on what iv seen over the last couple of months and his progression back from injury i feel Tiger Woods has to be top of my short list for the win . if you can find 20/1 anywhere i suggest you snap it up as i believe come the final day he will be looming large .

    Cant see Tiger, his putting isnt strong enough…

    Jordan Speith has a great shot, as does Justin Rose, lower down Matthew Fitzpatrick, Wesley Bryan is a huge outsider at the odds for me E/W (he wont win but sits a fun gamble), I actually think Dustin Johnson has the best chance this year, its a good course set up for him,

    Feel free to mention any other forums mate, i don’t want it to turn into somewhere people feel they can’t talk about anywhere else, all chat is welcomed 😀

     

    Interesting write up there mate so we don’t expect a course battering basically, i’m thinking maybe Mickleson might have a chance. Henrik Stenson too and maybe i will add in Mr Woods on your tip, i think i will go with them 3!

    Think Louis Oosthuizen is a good outside bet. Also backing Patrick Reed.

    It was redesigned in the mid 2000’s by Ben crenshaw oddly. But then prior to the Open this year then took the fairways in by a fair few yards so it “should” be won by a score around -4 to -8 id think. If the wind goes nuts then +8 🙂

    Its oddly a course suited for Luke Donald about 14 years ago haha

    Never like watching the Us Open. Hate seeing the best players in the world struggle. I want to see them having as many birdies as possible.

    It would be like watching Messi play football on a bobberly pitch.

    so you want to see the same as what we see 50 times a year already . major championships should be a proper test and this will be .
