The 2019 US Open is the third golfing major of the calendar year, with the best elite golf players in the world heading to the Pebble Beach Golf Links in California to compete in this prestigious tournament.

The field will include all previous eligible winners of the US Open along with winners of the Masters, PGA Championship and Open Championship over the past five years. As always, we will witness some of the world’s best players compete over four rounds, with the field reduced to roughly half after two rounds when the cut is made.

Many golf fans enjoy placing bets on the US Open which is traditionally regarded as the hardest major in terms of the course layout. Indeed, this is usually a tournament where players are required to be particularly accurate off the tee and have the ability to hit the ball a long way.

Can Brooks Koepka Make it Three in a Row?

Some betting customers will be keen to back Brooks Koepka at general odds of 14/1 considering that the American is bidding to win an third consecutive US Open title at Pebble Beach. It would be a staggering achievement for a player who is not always given the credit he deserves, with the 28-year-old not particularly media-friendly although his efforts cannot be underestimated.

Koepka landed the spoils in the 2017 US Open at Erin Hills in Wisconsin, with the American enjoying a four-stroke victory before claiming a win twelve months later at Shinnecock Hills. His triumph in New York means that he’ll be bidding to make history when lining up for a chance to retain a double title.

Curtis Strange managed to land consecutive US Open titles in 1988 and 1989, although you have to go back to 1905 for the last time that a golf player managed to land three consecutive victories in this tournament, with Willie Anderson of Scotland managing to secure a hat-trick.

Will Tiger Burn Bright at Pebble Beach?

The idea of Tiger Woods winning another golfing major would have seemed a ridiculous concept two years ago, although the legendary American was able to don the Green Jacket for a fifth occasion in 2019 when he was able to win the Masters against all the odds.

The 43-year-old will now be looking to continue a successful year in the US Open and this is a competition that Tiger has won on three occasions before, with Woods having won in 2000, 2002 and 2008. It’s clear that he will have his backers at odds of 9/1 which is currently available with Ladbrokes and William Hill.

Nineteen years ago, Tiger was triumphant at Pebble Beach when recording a victory by fifteen strokes over the four rounds of golf. It was a new tournament record and illustrates that this is a course which will be to the liking of the current market favourite, with Woods the only player to shoot under par in 2000.

Rory McIlroy’s Wait for a Major Win Continues

Rory continues to have a philosophical attitude when it comes to winning further majors, although the Northern Irishman is approaching the age of 30 and his spate of major triumphs have been followed up with several near misses and respectable finishes.

McIlroy was 21-years-old when he won his first US Open, with the Ryder Cup hero having blown the field away in 2011. Few expected anyone to win by eight strokes, although Rory played superlative golf for the majority of his four rounds and it was a walk in the park at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda.

This 2011 US Open success was the first major victory for McIlroy and he was able to win the PGA Championship the following year. Although 2013 brought no major victory, there was a double success in 2014, with Rory winning a first Open Championship before securing a second PGA Championship.

Four and a bit years have now passed and Rory has failed to land victory in the past seventeen major tournaments. It’s not as though McIlroy’s form has fallen off a cliff too many times, although elite golf has never been more competitive and the resurgence of Tiger Woods means it’s going to be tough to add to the tally.

Can Jordan Spieth Recover his Magic Touch?

It’s been a strange 2019 for Jordan Spieth who has thus far failed to find the sort of form that has helped the Texan win three major titles during his fantastic career. It was in 2015 when Spieth enjoyed his most successful year, with a Masters victory followed by a further win in the US Open.

Since that win four years ago, the 25-year-old hasn’t been anywhere near the top of the leaderboard, with Spieth having tied for 37th when trying to defend his title before tying for 35th a further year along the line. In 2018, Spieth failed to make the cut despite competing hard for the Masters a few months previously.

Spieth has previously been among the market favourites for a major although his odds are now generally around the 25/1 mark when it comes to a US Open, with other players more popular when it comes to betting on this famous tournament.

Justin Rose Bidding for Second US Open title

Justin Rose has become a bit of a forgotten man of golf, although this decorated player was triumphant in the 2013 US Open and he remains a tour de force on the PGA Tour, with the 38-year-old looking to land a second US Open title when it comes to this tournament at Pebble Beach.

Rose is trading at around 14/1 to win the US Open, with the Englishman having endured a series of near-misses since that victory six years ago. When it’s come to the US Open, the Ryder Cup legend failed to make the cut in 2016 and 2017, although he was able to tie for tenth last year.

US Open Betting Tips

How can we pass up the chance to back Brooks Koepka to make history, with the American regularly featuring at the top of major leaderboards? We can back Brooks at a bigger price than Tiger Woods and it’s clear which player has been challenging harder in major tournaments in the past few years.

Jason Day is also a talented golfer who is trading at odds greater than 20/1, with the Australian having the class to win more major tournaments, while Tony Finau acquitted himself well in the Masters and we think the American looks set for a great tournament.
