US Open Picks, Predictions and Odds:
1) Phil Mickelson (+655) – He has fallen short in the U.S. Open several times but this is the year he wins it all. The 2010 Masters champ- and three time AT&T Pebble Beach winner- would take over the top spot in the world rankings with a victory in his home state.
2) Lee Westwood (+1250) – As we all know Westwood has been awfully close to winning a major on more than one occasion. Hes coming of a win last week and is playing better golf then anybody in the world. It could be Lee’s week to take his name out of “the best player to never win a major” conversation.
3) Tiger Woods (+715) – At some point, Tiger is going to start playing like Tiger. Tiger had arguably the most dominating major performance ever here in 2000. He Loves Pebble Beach and it suits his game. If he can keep the ball in the fairway, watch out.
4) Jim Furyk (+2700) – Furyk won the U.S. Open in 2003 and has finished runner-up in two of the past four years. The two-time winner in 2010 has also missed just one cut in 14 starts at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Jim is a grinder so you know he will have a good chance to be in contention on Sunday.
5) Ernie Els (+4000) – Ernie hasn’t exactly played stunning here at Pebble but he has had two U.S. Open wins. I know his best days are behind him but he’s swinging it well this year and may still have something up his sleeve.
US Open Sleeper Picks:
Francesco Molinari – The younger of the Mollinari Brothers, Fransesco is an incredible ball-striker who can also get the putter going. He played well at the Masters this year and will be under the radar this week at Pebble.
Mike Weir- Weirzy always gets amped up for the majors and this is a course that he loves. He has seven top-10 finishes in the AT&T since 2000 and he really likes the way the course sets up for his game. Watch out for lefty he will need a good first round.
