After the third day of the commemorative tournament in early June, Jon Rahm won. Then, a positive COVID-19 test made him unable to move during the event. But as the world’s third-ranked player will return to the game at the 2021 US Open, betting odds are optimistic about the Spaniard’s potential.
Although the 26-year-old has never won a major event so far, he has won the top four in three of the four championships. This includes the third place in the US Open in the 2019 season.
There is no doubt that after many narrow wins, Ram hopes to stand out in his first big victory. He should have a good chance to do this, because the south course of the Torrey Pines Golf Course should play to his advantage, because the 7,698-yard course will facilitate a big wave like Ram.
Of course, Ram is not the lock to win this major. His opponents are some of the best players on the PGA Tour, and there are many batsmen on the court who can be as good as him. This may be attributed to the best combination of accuracy and deep driving ability this week, so players like Dustin Johnson and Bryson De Chambord will definitely be involved.
Below is all the information you need to know to bet on the 2021 US Open, including the latest tournament odds and the best bets on the event.
2021 U.S. Open odds
Joan Ram According to reports, (+950) is a popular candidate to win the 2021 US Open FanDuel sports betting oddsThis means that a $100 bet on Ram will include a payout of $950.
In early June, Ram appeared to be preparing to win the Memorial Tournament at Jack Nicklaus’ Mufield Village Golf Club, but before the last day of the game, he tested positive for COVID and dropped him from the game. But after performing well in difficult courses, he is the favorite here.
Dustin Johnson (+1500), Bryson DeChambeau (+1600), Brooks Koepka (+1800), Rory McIlroy (+1800) and Sand Scheufele (+1800) Ranked among the top six in FanDuel’s odds list. Simultaneously, Phil Mickelson, The winner of the PGA Championship, signs in at +5500 odds to win.

U.S. Open Expert Picks
Just like the 2021 PGA Championship on Kiawah Island, Torrey Pines South should benefit the big drivers in the race. This will be the third longest major championship course ever, with a total length of 7,698 yards. Only behind Kiawah Island’s 2021 PGA Championship (7,876 yards) and Mount Irene’s 2017 U.S. Open (7,741 yards).
This is not to say that a player with a weaker serving position cannot win – Phil Mickelson Ranked 180th in the PGA of 212 qualified golfers, with a tee shot of -.388, but still wins on Kiawah Island-but having a strong driver will help.
The south course is very long, the fairways are narrow, and the greens are complex, allowing golfers to get some feeling in the process of easily entering the championship. For this reason, the number of shots obtained from the tee, the accuracy of the tee, and the number of shots obtained by the putter will be the key data we look at among the preferred players.
favorite, Joan Ram (+950) It seems to be the best. He has the lowest odds at +950, but as far as the statistics we are looking at, he checked almost all the boxes. His average tee-off distance is 306.9 yards, ranking 23rd in this year’s tour, and 56th in terms of teeing accuracy of 212 golfers, ranking in the top quarter. Coupled with the third-ranked 0.859 from the tee and an above-average putt, he should have a good chance of winning.
Xander Schaffele (+1800) It’s another favorite to watch. He brought an excellent all-around game, ranked 8th in the number of putts (0.699) and 26th in distance (306.4 yards per kickoff). His accuracy rate is only average, but his ability to hit the ball near the tee (PGA ranking 36th) makes him at least a rock-solid bet to participate in the game.
In terms of long shots, Scottie Schaeffler (+4100) with Jason Kokrak (+7000) worth considering.
Scheffler is one of our potential draft picks for the PGA Championship, and the 24-year-old player finished eighth in the competition. Recently, he finished third in the Memorial Championship with -11 points. Like Schauffele, he is an all-round contributor, combining serve accuracy (41st) with driving distance (35th). He ranked 11th in the number of shots he scored on the tee and was an above-average putter.
At some point, Schaeffler should have a chance to break through. Why not participate in this competition?
At the same time, Kokrak ranks in the top five in the number of putts and the top 25 in serve distance and tee. His accuracy is a bit hot and cold, which explains his 78th place in the PGA 212 ranking, even though his kick-off number is good. This leaves some shortcomings, but for us, it is still enough to believe that he is a loser, especially at 70-1 odds.
If Kokrak is accurate with the driver, please pay attention. He can string together some solid rounds at Torrey Pines.
Annual U.S. Open champion
In 2021, Bryson DeChambeau hopes to become the 23rd player to win the U.S. Open multiple times since the tournament began in 1895. He won his first major victory in last year’s event with a score of -6.
However, De Chambeau may become the third player to win the tournament for several consecutive seasons. The most recent win was in the 2017-18 season, when DeChambeau’s opponent Brooks Koepka won the championship twice. Curtis Strange (1988-89) is another golfer who achieved this feat.
In its history, four different golfers have won this event four times. They are Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan, Bobby Jones and Willie Anderson. Nicklaus was the most recent person to accomplish this feat after his fourth victory in 1980.
The most active golfer is Tiger Woods, who has won the US Open three times, the last time being in 2008. However, Woods will not participate in this year’s race after being injured in a car accident on February 23. So, we will have to wait and see if he can compete further with the four four-time winners.
