2017 US Open Winner Prediction

Who Will Win The 2017 US Open Golf Championship?

2017 US Open LogoAll your fantasy golf research is done and you’ve figured out which golfers to focus on and which US Open Favorites to build around, but you are missing the one thing that will help you take down that Million Dollar paycheck in the Fantasy Golf Millionaire – you need to pick the guy who will win the US Open!

Picking a straight up winner isn’t easy to do. You focus on guys that are playing well, you look at golfers whose stats fit the tournament, and in certain cases study the course history. The US Open is played at a different course each year though, so course history goes out the window...but finding guys that are solid putters and have a great short game are things to look for in a US Open golf winner.

The guys we have listed below are all favorites to win the US Open and each one of them will be a great bet to actually win at Erin Hills, but we’ve given you a short break down and made our top pick for the 2017 US Open.

Our List of favorites and our pick to win the 2017 US Open

Dustin Johnson Dustin Johnson – The defending US Open Champion was at one point the hottest golfer in the world until a fall at the Masters sidelined him. He has come back and played well again, so he will be a popular pick to win the 2017 US Open tourney, but I am going to fade him for someone else...

Jason DayJason Day – His mother’s illness has weighed on him all season, but he has recently showed signs that he is coming back to form. I like Jason Day to be a top pick at Erin Hills and I wouldn’t be surprised if he wins given that he is on a streak of 4 Top 10 finishes at the US Open...

Rory McIlroyRory McIlroy – McIlroy has been battling a rib injury that has kept him from playing much since the Masters. I don’t think he will win the US Open this year. So why is he on this list? He is still Rory McIlroy and he will have rested leading up to the event and top golfers dial up their game for the majors so I wouldn’t completely right off Rory completely...

Sergio GarciaSergio Garcia – Has shown no signs of slowing down since winning the Masters in April. He got a huge monkey off of his back with that win and now gets to approach these majors with a lot less pressure. Sergio’s game is clicking right now and you can do a lot worse than picking him to win this week...

Justin RoseJustin Rose – Rose came oh so close to putting on a green jacket in April before losing in a playoff. Rose has been great on both the PGA Tour and the European Tour and he will be on a bunch of my FanDuel lineups because I do think he could win this week’s US Open at Erin Hills…but I have one final guy in mind as the winner...

And...the winner of the 2017 U.S. Open is…

Jordan SpiethJordan Spieth – Somewhat forgotten this year with DJ playing so well and Sergio winning the Masters - Spieth has been really good this year. He had a bit of a two tournament blip of missed cuts, but bounced back with a 2nd place tie at the Dean and Deluca Invitational. He was a winner just 2 years ago and, although he won’t be ignored by fantasy golf players, he may be overlooked for some of the other guys on this list. We will have him in a bunch of our Fantasy Golf Millionaire lineups since I do like him to be the winner of the 2017 US Open!
