Heading into the US Open at Oakmont, Pennsylvania, the field of entrants is led by a distinct popular few. These include Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, and Rory McIlroy. These three dominate the betting odds, and all for different reasons.
Jason Day has claimed his position by setting records across the board and proudly boasting the ranking of World Number 1 having won the 2015 PGA Championship. Day brings a wealth of recent strong showings worldwide and looks to continue his dominance over the field heading into the Oakmont US Open.
One no one can disagree that a threat to Day’s reign is former reigning leader Rory McIlroy. McIlroy has established himself as a name to remember in the sport, taking up the reigns as one of the best golfers in the world in recent years. Despite some less than great performances, McIlroy simply can’t be doubted, as he’s proven himself multiple times to be one of the strongest competitors and is looking to prove himself.
Finally, the third standout in the crowd has been Jordan Spieth. The 22 year-old former Rookie of the Year, as well as former PGA and US Open Champion looks to continue dominating as a new face in the sport. Spieth has proven himself multiple times in his career, which began in 2012. To make up for his difference in years of experience, Spieth is armed with multiple strong and serious finishes in his time hovering around the top, and is one to look out for in the future.
The field is riddled with names you can’t look past or skip over, even with these three in the mix, the event will be something to pay attention to regardless.
