The second golf major of the year is just around the corner, with the US Open getting under way at Erin Hills in Wisconsin a week on Thursday, and Dustin Johnson is a strong favourite – with the world number one available at best odds of 13/2 with Bet365.
However, there are some significant differences of opinion within the industry regarding some of the players who have shown some good form in recent weeks. Take Kevin Kisner, our 33/1 winner at last week’s Dean & DeLuca Invitational, who is a 33/1 shot at Stan James but available at 80/1 with Paddy Power.
The ever reliable Matt Kuchar, who went close at the Memorial Tournament last week, is a 50/1 shot with several firms for the US Open – yet he can still be backed at a stand-out price of 80/1 with William Hill.
Bubba Watson also enjoyed a good week at Muirfield Village and the two-time Masters champion, who is just 40/1 with Betfair, is also at 80/1 with William Hill.
