The US Open tees off on Thursday with the elite of the golfing world arriving in Massachusetts to vie for one of the biggest trophies in golf.

Last year’s winner, Jon Rahm, is among the favourites again this year but has failed to rediscover the form that brought him to glory in 2021. Rory McIlroy is the current betting favourite following his win at the Canadian Open last week whilst Justin Thomas is also being well backed at the right end of the market.

There are high hopes for a number of other players including Collin Morikawa and Cameron Smith but there is always the chance of a massive upset, especially with 14 amateurs qualifying for the competition this time around.

Read on to see the odds, offers and our tips ahead of one of the highlights in the golfing calendar.

Who will win the US Open in 2022? The leading contenders

Jon Rahm (14/1 at Sky Bet): The current world number two hasn’t been in his usual imperious form recently but still managed to win the Mexican Open in May. TheLines.com sums up the way Rahm should be viewed at this year’s tournament really well on their podcast when they said ‘..because of the success of Rory (McIlroy) and (Justin) Thomas lately, Rahm falls to around 15s[…], he’s more interesting for me because of the US Open form off the tee’.

The winner in 2021, should certainly be there or thereabouts on the final day and his price definitely appeals more than the shorter prices of Thomas and McIlroy.

Collin Morikawa (25/1 at Sky Bet):The 25-year-old, 2-time Major champion has immediately come out the gates to prove his game peaks in Major championships. With ten Majors under his belt now, he’s made it through the cut all but once with five top-10s over that span’. TheLines.com have made it clear; Morikawa has all of the experience at the top level to make it far in this competition.

He’s struggled recently but The Country Club suits his style, with a relatively short 7,200 yards in total putting an emphasis on accuracy and that could mean success for the American.

Max Homa (40/1 at Sky Bet) The biggest of our selections but perhaps the most interesting. ‘Safe to say Homa might be one of the best players in the world currently. His ball striking has been elite, and most importantly the putter has really been rolling. He’s missed all three cuts at U.S. Opens, but it’s clear he’s a better player now and could contend at Brookline.’ TheLines.com have put it much more eloquently than I could. 

If Homa hits the ground running, he could see plenty of success off the tee this week.
