US Open Golf Preview

Oakmont Golf Club strikes fear into the hearts of even the best golfers on the planet, and that’s music to the ears of those that organise the US Open, as they love the winning score to be par or worse. That’s highly likely to be the case this week as, when Oakmont was last used for the US Open in 2007, Angel Cabrera won with a +5 Total, which is a pretty good score when you consider there were only 8 under-par rounds in the whole tournament – and he had two of them.

US Open GolfThe course is a par-70 that measures just over 7,200 yards, but the rough is so deep that players have been struggling to even get out it this week in practice, and the greens are so slick that if you’re putting from above the hole – and you miss – then you may well not be on the green for your next putt.

The winner will probably need most parts of his game to be in good working order this week, but what will be needed most of all will be the power of concentration – and that’s why I think Rory McIlroy might struggle this week. He’s probably the best auto-pilot golfer on the planet – but this will be brutal.

We all know Jordan Spieth loves a scrap and his scrambling skills and lethal putter could well win him his second US Open, though the all-round class of Jason Day could mean this ends up a serious battle between the two – and it will be interesting to see whether any bookies decide to offer big-prices about either of them on Wednesday morning.

Justin Rose also likes a scrap, and he could also add a second US Open to his CV if he’s fully recovered from the injury that kept him out of the BMW at Wentworth last month, where he told everyone that this was his big target for the year. That’s not surprising since he finished 10th here in 2007. He was also superbly placed to win his first major then, having gone into the last round just +5 before shooting 76, but he’s a much better player now.

A player to note out of the talented young crop of youngsters could well be Brooks Koepka, who has finished 4th and 18th in the last two years, and has also been in excellent form recently having finished runner-up twice.
