Golf US Open Winner Prediction Isn’t Going To Come As A Shock Share Tweet Published 4 months ago on June 15, 2017 By Tanner Rebelo US Open Winner Prediction Isn’t Going To Come As A Shock With Erin Hills Playing Well For The Long Driver The US Open teed of this morning at Erin Hills, the eleven year old course is hosting it’s first major and the conditions regarding the fescue have created a lot of talk around golf. But all eyes have turned towards the competition and predicting who will win this weekend and take home the years second Major. Now I have a prediction, and it isn’t one that should take any of you by surprise. Erin Hills is a links style golf course that favors the long drivers, players like Jordan Speith, Bubba Watson, and Dustin Johnson should all be in play this weekend with the course favoring their playing style. Johnson though is my pick to win this years US Open, Johnson is a long drive player who can open his fade to reach ridiculous distances on his drive. Johnson’s wife, Paulina Gretzkey gave birth to his second son River Jones Johnson only a couple of days ago. With the birth of his son Johnson’s practice schedule has been thrown off and that means his playing time on the course ahead of the US Open will be limited. While some might think that is a distraction for Johnson, I believe that he will use it as motivation to have a strong showing at Erin Hills. Johnson, 32, is the world ranked #1 and in 9 US Open starts has made the cut into Sunday an impressive 8 times and is the reigning US Open Champion. Being a reigning US Open Champion is usually not a good thing, no champion has defended their title since Curtis Strange in 1989. But Johnson is the biggest hitter on the field and Erin Hills favors his playing style. Johnson is the best player at the US Open and he has been almost unbeatable in 2017. The betting odds also favor my pick with Johnson currently the odds on favorite at +750. Johnson missed out at the chance at the first major of the year by slipping down the steps at his rental property ahead of the Masters. Johnson tried to gut it out but pulled out of the 2016 Masters ahead of day 1 play, this time around Johnson will turn out on top.

But the leaderboard at the top is looking quite tight after round one. First-Round Leaderboard Dustin Johnson 66 (-5) Kyle Stanley 67 (-4) Marc Leishman 67 (-4) Sergio Garcia 67 (-4) Jon Rahm 67 (-4) Four golfers are tied for second place at 4 under par sitting one shot back of Johnson’s 5 under par lead. Johnson birdied the 10th hole at TPC Boston to get his opening round underway and converted a putt of less than five feet for eagle at No. 18 to make the turn 4-under. His inward nine of 1-under contributed to a 5-under 66. In his eighth appearance at the Dell Technologies Championship, Johnson’s 66 marked his lowest opening round at TPC Boston. Johnson’s best result in the Dell Technologies Championship is T4 (twice, 2009, 2012). He finished T8 at TPC Boston last year. Defending Dell Technologies Bank Championship winner Rory McIlroy birdied the par-5 final hole for a 1-over 72. Round 2 kicks off on Saturday with the same pairings as round 1.

No longer is the championship sponsored by Deutsche Bank, instead, it has been rebranded as the Dell Technologies Championship. The reigning champion of the tournament, Rory McIlroy will be present for the Labor Day weekend tournament and enters it ranked No. 43 in the FedExCup after beginning the FedExCup Playoffs at No. 44. McIlroy had an impressive comeback at last years event after being tied for 67th overall after an opening round 71. But he posted a final round 65 as he was able to close and eclipse a 6 stroke lead Paul Casey had entering the final round in 2016. That six stroke come-from behind win happens to be the largest in the tournament’s history. But this year looks to be different at the Dell Technologies Championship. For starters, McIlroy won the FedExCup in 2016 and looks to be nowhere close to being able to do that this time around. The favorites heading into this weekend are the top 6 in the FedExCup standings.
