We’ve made it into Major 3 for 2022. While the course is set to be incredibly challenging and the course is packed with the best players in the world, golf itself wasn’t the story this week in Brooklyn, Massachusetts.

With a competition tour and its players forming at The Country Club’s US Open course, the world’s focus is on issues outside the field surrounding golf. However, by Thursday morning players will be playing golf for a great four days that will see the game’s elite looking like amateurs at times.

The US Open is notorious for its hardships, and The Country Club at Brookline this week is no different. Coarse will be punished, greens will be lightning fast and require absolute precision.

It will be fun to watch golf lovers everywhere.

Last week our staff got hot, checking three of their six picks at +450, +120 and -115 odds for the RBC Canadian Open.

Check out their detailed picks and breakdowns for the third major golf tournament of 2022 below.

2022 Best Bets US Open

Brooks Koepka – Miss Cut (+140) Brooks Koepka

Chris Murphy: Since I had The full card for the best bets This week, I’m going off the board a bit with a brace for the US Open.

Much of what we’ll hear about Brooks Koepka the rest of this week will be around his Tuesday interview, during which he cast a shadow over questions posed and didn’t take a tough stance on his future. He’ll have that looming over an event where you don’t need distractions to struggle.

Koepka is at his worst in the big events this year, having missed the cuts in THE PLAYERS and Masters, which was followed by T55 in the PGA Championship. He’s always stood out at the US Open, but it’s hard to look at him as the same Koepka who has had two wins and a final four in his last four games in the discipline.

Koepka’s 2022 has struggled with injuries, and the cloud added above him this week won’t help what is annually considered golf’s toughest test. This appears to be the setting for another big tournament where the weekend is played without Koepka at the track.

John Ram +1600

Matt Vincenzi: The last time I remember Jon Ram having +1600 or better was the 2020 Memorial Championships, which he won. You don’t often hear that a player in this price range is a “value” play, but that’s exactly one game.

Although his relatives have struggled this season, Ram remains the best golfer in the world out of the shirt. At the US Open, a long, straight streak is the recipe for success, and he’s as tall and straight as he gets.

The Spaniard has only lost hits from a tee in one of his 42 past measured events at TOUR. This event marked his last start at the memorial, which I feel comfortable calling strange.

Country Club will play an incredible challenge from a tee. Ram is simply the most reliable player in the world and I trust him to put himself in the perfect position for his second shot more than once.

The 27-year-old will be the first to tell you that it has been a bearish year relative to his expectations. But Ram’s “landing year” still puts him first in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee and second in Greens in Regulation earned in his past 24 rides.

Max Huma +5000

Joshua Perry: Homma is a man I will continue to look up to in the majors as long as he stays in this mid-range. He has shown on numerous occasions the ability to play well against strong fields in some challenging courses.

Homa’s current form is where it should be. He hasn’t finished outside the top 25 since the Masters, including a win during that round in Wells Fargo. He has all aspects of his game in solid shape as well, gaining hits in every category over his last two events.

Tony Finau +2200 and Matthew Fitzpatrick +1800 (winner without special – Draft Kings)

Derek Farnsworth: I generally try to stay away from alternative golf markets because they usually get to the point of being unbearable. However, DraftKings has an interesting express market that I have my eyes on this week. He’s the winner without Justin Thomas, John Ram, Rory McIlroy, Scotty Scheffler and Xander Shaveli.

Essentially, it’s a bet on who will end up in the top position if we take the five biggest favorites out of the equation.

This type of bet seems ideal for both Finau and Fitzpatrick. They are known for being able to compete every week rather than being able to win.

After months of struggling, Finau is finally starting to get back in shape. He finished fourth on the Colonial team with 7.4 strokes in the tee to the green, and finished second in Canada last week with 11.8 strokes in the tee to the green. The Finau driver is running again and that will be crucial this week at The Country Club.

You’ll probably hear this 100 times over the course of a week, but Fitzpatrick won the 2013 American Amateur Awards here in 2013. Although I don’t put much into it, it certainly doesn’t hurt. He’s always talked about giving his best on steady, fast golf and preventing any rain, which is what we can expect this week. He’s added distance off the tee this year, gained close-up hits in 11 consecutive events, and has one of the best short games on the PGA Tour.

Again, they do not need to win in order to win this bet. We only need one to finish at the top of the leaderboard if we take out Ram, Rory, GT, Schaeffler and Shaveli.

Patrick Cantlay +2500

Landon Silinsky: In four US Open careers, Cantlay hasn’t missed a chance yet, and boasts a pair of top 20 spots. His lack of success in the major tournaments is really a mystery because he is truly one of the most talented golfers on the planet and he has absolutely no weaknesses in his game. He’s good in and around the greens to keep up with elite hits for the ball, which is pretty rare. It’s no surprise that he ranks fourth on the field in the Total Strokes he’s earned over his past 48 runs.

We know Cantlay does some of his best work on shorter trails, proof of this even better by his success at Sherwood, TPC Summerlin and Harbortown. This week we got 7,200 yards equal to 70 and I expect big things from the fourth player in the world. He must also be very comfortable with these green plants, being a native of California.

This might be the week that Cantlay picks up his first elusive career major, and I won’t miss a thing.

Xander Shaveli +2200

Brian Berryman: Everything seems to be in line with Xander Schauffele this week at Brookline.

We have a great player who comes in excellently, in a tournament format in which he has been particularly successful during his career. At the start of his five US Open career, Shaveli finished seventh, sixth, fifth, fifth and third. He never finished outside the top ten, which is incredible given the difficulty of the courses offered by the USGA and the strength of these areas.

Over the past 24 rounds, Xander has ranked 8th in the field in Strokes Gained: Approach and 18th in Fairways Gained, while also ranking within the Top 25 in both Bogeys Avoided and Birdies or Better Gained. This combination of killer ball hits and scoring should fit right in with what The Country Club will be asking players this week, checking every box I look for in a winner.

Shaveli is currently at the top of the list of the best golfers in the world without ever winning a major tournament. His full game from tee to green is tailored for the major tournaments and should put him in competition again this week. I think this is the time for Shaveli to remove his name from that list above.
