US Open Half Way Stage
While most of the world has its eyes focused on the World Cup, the USA may have a distraction. As they failed to qualify for Russia, the US Open may be more on the Americans minds. Especially as they should have a winner in this one.
Here are our tips for the final 2 days:
WINNER – Dustin Johnson (4/6)
Johnson was one of the favourites going in and leads by 4 after day 2. An American has won the last 3 US Open tournaments including Johnson himself 2 years ago.
WINNER WITHOUT JOHNSON – Tommy Fleetwood (15/2)
Fleetwood is in decent form in 2018. With a lot of players in a tight group behind Johnson, Fleetwood will fancy his chances after hitting a 66 on day 2. Will face strong competition from the likes of Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson though.
END OF ROUND 3 LEADER W/O JOHNSON – Rickie Fowler (9/1)
American Fowler is 2 shots off 2nd place currently but will be determined to improve his position after 3 previous top 10 finishes in the US Open without winning. He improved on his opening day score of 73 to hit a 69 on day 2 and we are backing him to get better and better.
