The latest predictions for the US Open are in, with Dustin Johnson heading in as the favourite. Having won three tournaments, the FedExCup and the $15million payday that goes with that title, 2020 has been an excellent year for Johnson.
A major victory, however, would put a cherry on top of a campaign that has already seen the 36-year-old awarded the PGA Tour Player of the Year honours.
“I’m playing well,” said Johnson, who will tee-off in the opening round alongside Bryson DeChambeau and Tony Finau.
“I’ve got a lot of confidence in the game but I’m not putting any extra expectations.
“I expect to play well every week.

“But it’s one of those golf courses where it’s very difficult and you need to be spot-on if you want to play well.”

A spokesperson for thepools.com said: “The US Open arrives in New York for the second time in two years and already it is building up to be an exciting one.
“Tiger Woods has already described Winged Foot Golf Club as one of the most difficult courses he’s ever played in so could we see a few surprising faces who will not make the cut.
“The Americans have dominated their home major for the last five years thanks to Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Gary Woodland.
“Johnson is the bookies favourite at 8/1 but could we have a surprise with a Brit lifting the US Open Trophy?
“Tommy Fleetwood is an outside 28/1 but he did narrowly miss lifting the trophy by a stroke to Brooks Koepka – who misses this year’s contest due to injury.
“Based on the odds market, it is too close to call but with many tipping Dustin Johnson to win his first major since 2016 – he could be worthy choice at 8/1.”
