2015 US Open Sleeper Picks

2015 US Open TrophyIf you are going to win the BIGGEST 2015 US Open Fantasy Golf Contest - then you better have your U.S. Open sleeper picks all lined up.

It’s easy to pick favorites to win the US Open and start setting your lineup, but after the 3rd guy you will have no more salary cap money left! This is where sleepers come in.

We use golf betting odds to see who the longshots and sleeper picks are so we can plan our fantasy golf lineups at sites like FantasyAces.com. These underdogs will be lower priced "value picks" and are great fliers to fill out your rosters with.

**Fantasy Golf Sleeper Pick Strategies & Tips for the 2015 US OPEN**

  • To win the BIG $$ - all 6 of your fantasy golfers will have to make the cut
  • Find one or two sleeper picks that will allow you to afford the top favorites to win the 2015 US Open under the salary cap
  • Ideally we want guys that are under the $4000 player price at Fantasy Aces, but really good players that sneak under the $5K mark can still be great value plays

Sleepers and Longshots for the U.S. Open

Kevin NaKevin Na (125-1) – Kevin Na is a 125-1 shot to win the U.S. Open. His strong play at Colonial a few weeks back may move him up the ranks and salary cap price list. Na will still be a good low cost option though, and his game so far in 2015 has been solid. Look for him to play the full weekend at Chambers Bay.

Jamie DonaldsonJamie Donaldson (100-1) – Donaldson is posted as a 100-1 longshot at some online betting sites…yet he’s ranked 30th in the world! Donaldson was undervalued for the Masters, and he made the cut finishing in 33rd. I expect the same to happen for all of this year's 2015 US Open Fantasy Golf Contests and fully expect him to bring back great value for the price!

Bill HaasBill Haas (80-1) – Haas is one of the quietest great PGA Tour players. He plays well, wins at least once a year on tour, and is ranked around 20th in the Official World Golf Rankings – yet he is undervalued at most top fantasy golf sites! Big name players get the high salary cap prices, and most deserve them, but Haas is usually on the lower end of the salary grid. He is a great sleeper to round out your fantasy golf team with.

Danny WillettDanny Willett (200-1) – You want a true 2015 US Open longshot? I got one for you – Danny Willett. If you try to see what the oddsmakers have him it…go to the very bottom of the list. He flashed a 3rd place finish at the WGC Cadillac and finished in 38th at the Masters, but aside from being ranked in the top 40 of the world rankings, I can’t sell him much more. He will be a low cost gamble that you can stick in if you are trying to build a team with guys like Spieth and McIlroy.

Louis OosthuizenLouis Oosthuizen (66-1) – When healthy, Oosthuizen is a monster on tour. He plays a lot in Europe, so he gets forgotten about, but you need to keep an eye on him. Oosthuizen's stats are solid, he is a past US Open Champion (2010), and is ranked 31st in the world. His health has been spotty, so pay attention to any news about pains or ailments. Check out his salary price - he may be a great sleeper pick for your fantasy golf team.

Byeong-hun AnByeong-hun An (Huge Longshot) – Another DEEP sleeper pick is Byeong-hun An. He is ranked 52nd in the world, and the last event he played on the PGA Tour was The Open Championship in which he finished 26th. He recently won the BMW PGA Championship and has four Top 10s in 2015. Oh, and he was a semifinalist in the 2010 U.S. Amateur Championship played at Chambers Bay!
