US Open Favorites Groups And Tee Times
Collin Morikawa, Tiger Woods, and Justin Thomas @ 8:07 a.m. EST
Tiger Woods (+4000) will make his PGA Tour debut this year as he looks to break his tie with Sam Snead for the most wins in PGA Tour history.
Woods will be in a group with players ahead of him on the oddsboard as Collin Morikawa and Justin Thomas will tee off alongside the golfing legend.
The early morning tee time for this group should see them get off to a fast start as anyone in this trio of golfers could leave this tournament as a winner.
Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, & Tony Finau @ 1:16 p.m. EST
Dustin Johnson’s journey to winning consecutive FedEx Cup titles starts with him fighting off Bryson DeChambeau and Tony Finau (+3300).
Johnson is the clear leader of this group and is the hottest golfer on the PGA Tour. Johnson will look to carry the momentum from the previous season and a late tee time will likely give him a slight advantage over the field.
DeChambeau and Finau also recorded wins in PGA tournaments a season ago and this will be one of the most competitive groups of the entire US Open.
Jon Rahm, Paul Casey, and Phil Mickelson @ 1:27 p.m. EST
Rahm is the obvious alpha dog in this grouping as Paul Casey (+6600) and Phil Mickelson (+8000) just haven’t been able to put together consistent performances over the past year.
Expect Rahm to outplay the two other golfers in this group as he likely cruises to making the cut and eyes a top ten finish on the leaderboard.
Lefty and Paul Casey are no more than just long shot dart throws.
Xander Schauffele, Billy Horschel, Brandt Snedeker @ 1:38 p.m. EST
Xander Shauffele finished in second place at the Tour Championship and he should be in the mix at the US Open.
He’ll be in a group with Billy Horschel (+15000) and Brandt Snedeker (+25000) in what will be one of the more underrated groups to watch on Thursday with two longshot golfers looking to keep up the pace with Schauffele.
The US Open will be held from Thursday to Sunday and will be broadcasted by CBS and the Golf Channel with the earliest tee time starting at 6:50 a.m. on Thursday.
