US Open Golf Predictions | 2019 US Open Tips
The third golf major of the season starts this week in California with Brooks Koepka the man to beat at Pebble Beach.
The 29-year-old is in the form of his life after winning four of his last eight majors and is looking to make history at Pebble Beach by becoming the first person to win three consecutive US Opens since Scotsman Willie Anderson in 1905.
Tiger Woods will also be returning to the scene of one of his greatest triumphs this Thursday. The 15-time major winner breezed to the 2000 US Open title around this course by a thumping 15-stroke margin. Could he roll back the years once again with another commanding win in California?

2019 US Open Golf Predictions, Tips & Preview
US Open Golf Betting Tips – Win Market
Adam Scott – 22/1 – The Australian arguably deserves more than one solitary major to his name given his steady track record of Top 10 finishes at majors – 18 in total. Third and eighth place finishes at the last two PGA Championships suggests he still has the game to be a leading contender going into Sunday. With one of the best golf swings in the business, Scott looks an interesting price to add to his maiden major victory in the 2013 Masters.
Jon Rahm – 25/1 – The Spaniard continues to be a consistent performer on the tour but still has no major silverware to show for his efforts. He is surely due a breakthrough moment after claiming three Top 10 finishes in his last six major outings. He also currently ranks fifth this season for strokes gained off the tee – that could give him an opening if leading contenders including McIlroy, Koepka and Watson fail to shine around Pebble Beach.
Jason Day – 28/1 – Day’s major record has been solid if not spectacular in recent seasons but looks good value for this tournament. The 2015 PGA Championship winner has some recent form around these greens, finishing in a tie for fourth in the AT&T Pro-Am back in February. The shrewd hire of an experienced hand alongside him in Steve Williams (Tiger Woods’ former caddie) could also be key. The New Zealander was famously alongside Woods for his record-breaking 2000 US Open triumph at Pebble Beach. Could he be a good luck charm again in 2019?

Henrik Stenson – 50/1 EW – They simply don’t come much steadier than the hugely experienced Swede who, even at 43, still looks to have at least one more major success in him. Recent major form has been patchy which is part of the reason he’s not heavily fancied for Pebble Beach, but a Top Six finish looks more than achievable for one of the most assured golfers in the game.
Si Woo Kim – 85/1 E/W – The South Korean came in a tie for fourth at the Pro Am at Pebble Beach. He’s yet to set the world alight in a major but did finish in 13th place at the 2017 US Open – that suggests the 23-year-old has the potential to push more-fancied contenders all the way if the stars align for him this this week.
Thomas Pieters – 125/1 E/W – The 27-year-old Belgian tends to fly under the radar at majors but can come on strong when his game clicks into place. Recent form suggests it could be a short-lived trip around the Pebble Beach lawns, but he has tied for fourth at the Masters and sixth at the PGA Championship since the start of 2017. Don’t rule out another surprise turnaround in form if Pieters can keep himself in contention through the early part of the tournament.
