Welcome to the 111th United States Open everyone. This year’s event is as wide open as I can remember, resulting in an excellent opportunity to make some serious money with my picks.

Picking a winner on the PGA Tour is not an easy thing to do. Over the past 7 year I have gained the inside knowledge to the courses and players, resulting in profitable years over the past 5. This US Open should be a great one and here is a little insight into this week’s major:

The US Open is being played at stunning Congressional Country Club located in Bethesda, Maryland. They will be playing the Blue Course this year, one that will test every player’s talents and mental strength. At 7574 yards and a Par 71, any score under par this week will be looked upon as excellent. In fact, Graeme McDowell went as far to say that no one would end up under Par this week.

The course is extremely long, but early reports indicate that though the rough is thick, it is not the usual US Open long. This should bode well for the long hitters on Tour to take advantage of certain holes and try and conquer this monster of a golf course. The greens are fairly large and will be running very quickly, though they are not as complicated as other US Open greens. The two things that will increase scores this week are the possibility for huge numbers on certain holes and the pressures of the US Open.

One thing that will be extremely enjoyable this week is the pairings the USGA has made for the 1st two rounds. Groups such as (Garcia, Jimenez and Quiros) (Molinari, Molinari and Manassero) (Donald,Westwood and Kaymer) and my favorite ( McIlroy, D. Johnson and Mickelson). These pairings should provide for an increased comfort level for the players, but also a treat for the golf fans.

No matter who the pairings are the goal is to pick the winner to the golf tournament. We all want a Sunday payday and that is exactly the plan for this United States Open. I have put in the research not only over the past month, but also over the past 7 years, and am extremely confident heading in to the 2nd major of the year.

Over the past 5 year I have correctly selected 2 United States Open champions. In 2006 I hit Geoff Ogilvy and in 2010 I hit Graeme McDowell. We are going for 3 winners in the last 6 years. Come join us at and follow my guaranteed US Open picks for the weekend. The US Open is a great golf tournament and it should be a very entertaining 4 days!
