Reigning US Open golf champion Jon Rahm is aiming to win a second straight edition of the tournament this year. The latest edition of the US Open tees off on June 16 and runs until June 19.

The tournament will welcome a number of the world's top players. The 2022 edition of the US Open will be played at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts. The US Open is the third major championship of the PGA golf season. Scott Scheffler won this year's Masters, while Justin Thomas won the PGA Championship. Now, the third major championship is up for grabs.

This year's tournament will be the 122nd US Open. The field will feature 156 golfers. The number of top professionals and amateurs involved in the tournament means that anyone can win it.

US Open Golf Betting Odds

Jon Rahm goes into the US Open as the reigning champion. Rahm won the tournament last season at Torrey Pines. He became the first non-American golfer to win it since Martin Kaymer of Germany won the event in 2014. Rahm goes into the tournament at 16/1 odds to win it.

Rory McIlroy is the early favourite to win the US Open in Brookline. The Northern Irishman is at the best betting odds of 10/1 to win the event. McIlroy won the US Open in 2011 in Bethesda. McIlroy is having a strong year on the golf course. He finished second at the Masters. McIlroy's excellent performance at the Masters and recent win at the RBC Canadian Open makes him a strong candidate for winning the US Open this month. The Northern Irishman could break his duck at the US Open.

Justin Thomas is looking for his second major championship win of the season following his victory at the PGA Championship. He is at the best betting odds of 12/1 to win the competition. Meanwhile, Masters winner, Scottie Scheffler, comes in at the US Open golf odds of 14/1 to win. Scheffler's Masters win was the first major tournament victory of his career.

In 2017 and 2018, Brooks Koepka shot into sports news around the world by winning the US Open in back-to-back years. Koepka is a long shot at 45/1 to win the tournament for the third time. Koepka has struggled to rekindle the form he showed just a few years ago. Could the US Open spark a return to form? Former champion Jordan Spieth is at the best betting odds of 25/1 to win the tournament. Spieth won the competition in 2015 during a remarkable year in which he claimed the Masters and was second at the PGA Championship. Spieth hasn't won a major tournament title since 2017 at The Open Championship.

Here is a look at the top 10 US Open golf odds:

  • Rory McIlroy 10/1

  • Justin Thomas 12/1

  • Scottie Scheffler 14/1

  • Jon Rahm 16/1

  • Cameron Smith 20/1

  • Xander Schauffele 22/1

  • Jordan Spieth 25/1

  • Patrick Cantlay 25/1

  • Matthew Fitzpatrick 25/1

  • Shane Lowry 28/1

Who Is the Favourite to Win the US Open?

According to the latest bookie odds on the US Open, Rory McIlroy is the favourite to win the tournament at odds of 10/1. McIlroy won the tournament in 2011 with an eight stroke lead over Jason Day. The US Open win was McIlroy's first ever Major championship victory.

Since winning the 2011 US Open, McIlroy has won three additional major titles. However, he has not claimed a major title since 2014. That year saw McIlroy win both the PGA Championship and the Open Championship.

In June 2022, McIlroy won the RBC Canadian Open for the second time. It was the Northern Irishman's first win of the year. Although the RBC Canadian open was McIlroy's first win of the year, he has played well on the PGA Tour in 2022. McIlroy finished second at the Masters. He is in good form and an each way US Open bet on McIlroy could return a potential profit.

Who Won the US Open Last Year?

The 2021 US Open tournament was won by Spaniard Jon Rahm. It was Rahm's first ever major championship win. The Spanish golfer's previous best result at a major event was in 2021 at the Open Championship.

Rahm won last year at Torrey Pines thanks to a birdie on the final two holes of the course. The 72-hole stroke play tournament provided plenty of excitement to fans and punters. This year's tournament is likely to bring even more drama.

In 2021, Rahm was 10/1 to win the US Open. His strong drive helped him lift the trophy. The golfer could repeat as champion and become just the third player to repeat as US Open winner in the last 40 years. Rahm will surely have a lot of punters wagering on him.

What Dates are the US Open?

The 2022 edition of the US Open will begin on Thursday, June 16. The tournament will be played over the course of four days with it wrapping up on Sunday, June 19.

What Time Do the First Players Tee-off on Day 1?

Tee times for the US Open will be confirmed the day before the tournament starts. In 2021 at Torrey Pines, the first day started at 6:45 a.m. Pacific Standard Time, which was 9:45 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.

If tee times remain the same for this year's edition of the tournament, they will likely start at The Country Club at 9:45 a.m. The time will be 2:45 p.m. in the United Kingdom.

Where Is the US Open Held This Year?

The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts will host the 122nd edition of the US Open. Located just outside of Boston, the golf course will host the tournament for the fourth time. The Country Club has not held the US Open since 1988.

About the Course

The course at The Country Club is a throwback to years gone by. Golf purists are excited about the tournament being held at the course. Many of golf's modern courses favour design over difficulty. The Country Club should provide plenty of difficulty to the field of players.

The Country Club is the oldest golf course in the United States. It has been around for 129 years, seven years longer than the US Open. Over the decades, 10 different architects have reworked the course. It is currently known as "intimidating". The fear factor could play a major role in which player ultimately wins.

On June 8, it was announced that players competing in the new LIV golf competition would be allowed to play in the US Open. Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson will be a part of the breakaway competition. However, they will play the US Open this month.

Will Tiger Woods Play In The US Open This Year?

Tiger Woods will not play at this year's US Open. On June 11, it was confirmed the golf legend would skip the event. Woods released a statement saying, "My body needs more time to strengthen for a major," writes Woods. "I hope and plan to be ready to play next month in Ireland at JPProAm and then The Open. Can't wait to go back."

Woods has won 15 major titles in a legendary career. His last major trophy came at the 2019 Masters. Woods won three US Open tournaments between 2000 and 2008.

Will Rory Mcilroy Play In the Us Open This Year?

Yes, Rory McIlroy will play the US Open tournament. He is fresh off of winning the RBC Canadian Open and will go into the tournament in Massachusetts confident of winning a second US Open title.

McIlroy has won four majors previously. However, he last won a major title in 2014. The Northern Irishman has 21 all time PGA Tour wins. Since turning pro in 2007, he has won 33 times as a professional.

Who Has Won the Most US Open Titles in History?

The record for most US Open titles goes to four golfers. Willie Anderson, Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan, and Jack Nicklaus all won the tournament on four different occasions.

Willie Anderson holds the record for the most consecutive US Open wins with three. Anderson won the tournament thrice between 1903 and 1095.

Which Current Player Has Won the Most US Open Titles?

Hale Irwin and Tiger Woods have both won the US Open on three occasions. Woods is still looking to win it for a fourth time to equal Anderson, Jones, Hogan, and Nicklaus. Woods won't play at this year's tournament. Injuries and time may be the golfer's biggest enemies at the moment. Woods looks increasingly unlikely to be fit enough to win the major again.

Woods is still an active player on the PGA Tour. He is just 46 years old and could continue playing the tournament for years to come. Theoretically, Woods could still win a fourth or even fifth US Open title.

Irwin is no longer playing on the PGA Tour. The 77 year old reached his pinnacle during the 1970s and 1980s on the tour.

How Do I Place a Bet on the US Open?

Placing a bet on the US Open is simple. First, visit your favourite online sportsbook and click on the golf section. Once in the golf section, locate US Open and open up the golf odds for the tournament. There, you will see a list of players competing in the tournament. There is a field of 156 players set to take part.

Locate the player you believe will win the US Open tournament outright. Be sure to do your research and weigh up the pros and cons of your golfer. Once you have decided which golfer to bet on, add him to your bet slip. After checking your bet slip for any mistakes, enter your wager and sit back to watch the third major of the year unfold.

There are a number of bets you can make on the US Open tournament. If you don't fancy an outright tournament bet, then you can wager on the golfers per round. You can even bet on one of the players to score a hole in one. There are a number of bets to make on the US Open. Once players start teeing off, you will be able to make in-play bets as well.

Each Way Betting On the US Open

Each way betting allows you to make a return on your selection even if they do not finish first. Many major sportsbooks offer 1/5 the price on golfers who finish up to eighth place. Since the US Open has such a large field of players (156 golfers) and is stroke play, bookies will provide bettors with an incentive to wager on the tournament's outright winner.

Each way betting on the US Open offers you some insurance on making a bet. Rather than simply betting on a golfer to win the competition, you are also betting on your player to come in up to eighth place.

US Open Betting Tips

Jon Rahm won this tournament last season. He navigated a tricky field of golfers to reach the title. However, the US Open is such a difficult tournament to win, there may be an outsider that comes through to lift the ultimate prize. Rahm won the tournament last season with a -6 score.

For years, the US Open winner ended with an over par score. The USGA isn't a fan of this type of win and will hope that this year's tournament finishes with an under par score winner.

Since 1980, only two golfers have won the US Open in back to back years. Curtis Strange won the tournament in 1988 and 1989. Brooks Koepka repeated the feat in 2017 and 2018. The tournament is notoriously difficult to win and Rahm will have a large bullseye on his back.

Rory McIlroy is the leading odds favourite according to many bookies. McIlroy is coming off of a win and goes into the tournament in fine form. Meanwhile, The PGA Championship winner, Justin Thomas, will also fancy his chances of winning at The Country Club. Johnson has never won the US Open. His best finish was eighth place in 2020. Prior to winning the PGA Championship this season, he had only ever won one previous major tournament.

Golfers with a straight and lengthy long game may do well. It helped Rahm last season. The course will have narrow fairways, so don't be surprised to see many of the top pros drift into the rough. One of the top tips is to bet on a golfer with a strong drive distance. Length is more important than accuracy when it comes to the US Open, so do your homework to find a golfer with a great long game.

What Are the Four Golf Majors?

The four majors of golf are the:

  • Masters

  • The Open Championship July 14 to 17

The majors are just four of the over 700 tournaments organised by the PGA at various levels throughout the years. The four major events are the biggest golf tournaments in the world and can place a player on the map overnight courtesy of a win.

Who Has Won A Golf Major So Far This Season?

The 2022 Masters was won by Scottie Scheffler. He won the tournament defeating Rory McIlroy by three strokes. It was Scheffler's first ever major victory. McIlroy's strong performance at the Masters and recent win at the RBC Canadian Open makes him a strong candidate for winning the US Open this month.

The PGA Championship was won by Justin Thomas. The American golfer won the tournament for the second time thanks to a three hole aggregate playoff with Will Zalatoris.

When is the Next Golf Major?

The fourth major golf tournament of 2022 will be The Open Championship. This year's Open Championship will be the 150th edition of the tournament. The event will be played at "the home of golf", the Old Course at St. Andrews, Scotland. The Open Championship will be played from July 14 to July 17.

The 2021 edition of the Open Championship was won by Collin Morikawa. This year's tournament will be the 30th edition played at the Old Course. It will be first time in seven years it will take place at the legendary course.
