Top Picks To Win 2018 US Open
Day just seems like he’s ready to make a run at being the best in the world again and is playing lights out lately. Had some health issues leading into the Memorial which may have caused him to not play his best but he’ll be all systems go for Shinnecock.
I truly believe that Jordan Spieth can have a shot at winning in every tournament he’s in. On the final Sunday at Augusta he made a charge with a -8 round to make Reed sweat a bit. Spieth knows how to win and if his putter doesn’t let him down, he could very well have another major championship notch on his belt.
Rory is a winner at the US Open already but he will be geared up to capture another major once again. Rory was in contention at the Masters and will once again be on the radar for fantasy players looking at picking a winner.
DJ is built for a course like Shinnecock where his driving distance can shorten a long course and make it into a chip and putt competition. Having won the US Open two years ago, DJ doesn’t come in facing any pressure to win and can simply play his best this week.
Your new #1 ranked golfer in the world is as steady of a player as it gets. Thomas isn’t flashy but at a young age he’s already a major winner and commented last year after a practice round at Shinnecock that it was the easiest 65 he’s ever shot. I expect the course will be a bit tougher this time around.
Our Prediction To Win The US Open
Here are some stats for you: 11 PGA Tour starts in 2018, 2 wins, 6 Top 10 finishes and he’s a past US Open champion. Rose is just playing awesome this year and seems to be on a mission to win another major. Ranked #3 in the world golf rankings he has all the tools and experience to win at Shinnecock. Don’t be shy about putting him into your DraftKings Fantasy Golf Millionaire lineups and watching him make a run at winning once again!
