The world’s best players are touching down in Torrey Pines on Thursday with the year’s third major on the line, the 2021 US Open.
Old stager Phil Mickelson pulled off an almighty shock at the US PGA Championship at odds of over 100/1, but could we see another surprise winner claiming victory in California?
Here’s our look at where the value could lie in the 2021 US Open golf betting…

He’s the bad boy of golf, but can Bryson DeChambeau deliver another blistering display in this major?
The 27-year-old isn’t on everyone’s Christmas card list on the circuit, but he was in bruising form across all four days of last year’s tournament, eventually winning by six shots from Matthew Wolff. He’s been in patchy form since then, but did seal the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Florida back in March.
Should DeChambeau’s form desert him at Torrey Pines, it would be a delicious irony if Brooks Koepka can capitalise to claim his third US Open. The 2017 and 2018 winner hasn’t exactly been shy in hiding his feelings on his rival in recent times, and Koepka will be keen to make a power play here before a likely excruciating Ryder Cup truce in September.
After an improved 2021 campaign, there was a tinge of disappointment for 2015 champion Jordan Spieth at Kiawah Island as his bid to get back in the mix for majors came unstuck at the PGA Championship.
The Texan never seriously forced his way into the reckoning in South Carolina, eventually finishing T30. He’ll be looking to improve on recent US Open showings after missing the cut in two of the last three years.
2021 US Open Venue: Torrey Pines
Sunny San Diego is the destination for this year’s 2021 US Open as the major returns to Torrey Pines for the first time since 2008.
This will be only the second US Open to be held at the Californian golf course, and we’re also guaranteed a new winner. The recuperating Tiger Woods was the champion here back in 2008, when he edged out surprise runner-up Rocco Mediate by one shot in a tense finish on day four.
This year’s event will return to the venue’s South Course, the longest course on the PGA Tour.
US Open Golf Odds: Top Picks For 2021 ⛳️
🏌️♂️ Jon Rahm – 44/5 – has added incentive to claim his first major here after his forced withdrawal when leading the Memorial Tournament.
🏌️♂️ Bryson DeChambeau – 15/1 – defending champion is effectively on home turf here and DeChambeau has plenty of knowledge of this course, albeit with a mixed record.
🏌️♂️ Xander Schauffele – 33/2 – his time could be coming after T3 and 5th place finishes at the Masters and last year’s US Open. Missed the cut at the PGA, but rarely out the frame.
🏌️♂️ Daniel Berger – 45/1 – looks one of the more likely longer shots having posted five Top 10 finishes on the tour this year.
🏌️♂️ Sungjae Im – 75/1 – two top 10 finishes to date this year and T17 recently in the PGA; T2 at the 2020 Masters and this course could suit his game.
Odds correct at time of writing but may be subject to change.
