2021 US Open Golf Betting Tips - Bomb and Gouge the Brief at Big Tony Pines?

Jon Rahm is a justifiable favourite for the US Open in my opinion, given his affinity with Torrey Pines, but with the test that awaits, Bryson has to be right there alongside him. Torrey is obviously a regular stop on the rotation and the difference this week on the South course will be the tightening of some landing areas and the rough will be grown longer and thicker.

That's not new though at Torrey and it remains to be seen if the old tactic of bomb and gouge can still be of use. The thing at Torrey is there is little obstruction from off the fairways to the greens and if you're strong enough there's an opening into every green from the rough. Bryson has shown us so far that he performs best on open courses where the rough is supposed to be the penalty. He is proabably the best player at the moment from thick rough with his strength to gouge it out. Indeed last year's US Open win triumph was with a similar brief. Bryson DeChambeau has drifted to 18s with extra places and is now an auto bet.

Tony Finau is showing progressive form at the Farmers Insurance Open with a t6 followed by a t2 the last couple of events there. As you can see above he has a course fit rating of 9.19 but his fade off the tee and high ball flight from approaches is perfect for the South Course here. 4 rounds instead of 3 on the South is also of benefit to Finau who performs best and has his biggest edge on the field on tough last man standing type courses. He's available around the 28/1 mark with extra places and is a standout bet this week for me along with Bryson

Viktor Hovland impressed earlier this year on Torrey's South course and indeed was a lot closer to Patrick Reed coming down the stretch. Reed won this event with a masterclass in scrambling which won't be sustainable this week at the US Open. If fairways and greens are the brief even more so this week at the US Open, Viktor Hovland is definitely one I want onside. Joaquin Niemann falls under the same bracket. Niemann is a ball striking tee to green machine who has some junior success under his belt as a previous winner on the Torry Pines South course.

Two more players to complete the main staking plan are Marc Leishman and Gary Woodland. Both have expressed a liking for Tony Pines. Leish is a course specialist who I backed for a number of years here, while Gary Woodland has shown glimpses here. He owns the perfect fit for the South Course with his left to right ball flight and prodigious length off the tee. Of course Gary is another previous US Open Champion.

I'll give a quick mention for the returning to form Bernd Wiesberger - a recent winner in Europe. Bernd is another I think the course should suit and he's performed admirably in majors in the past on US soil. I think quotes of 250/1 each way are less than flattering and he's worth a bet outright EW, and each way in the first round leader market.
