U.S Open lookahead favorites

Rory McIlroy (+1,400)

Running in a three-way tie at +1,400 is Rory McIlroy.

Rory's first of four major championship victories came at the 2011 U.S. Open at Congressional as a 21-year-old. He lapped the field, winning by eight shots.

McIlroy was also in contention for the 2021 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines but faded away during his final-round back-nine, finishing T7.

Is this the year McIlroy gets back into the major championship Winner's Circle? He'll look to use his PGA Championship result as motivation after squandering a Round 1 lead.

Jon Rahm (+1,400)

Last year's U.S. Open champion Jon Rahm is back atop the odds board for 2022 with odds of +1,400.

Rahm's dramatic U.S. Open victory at Torrey Pines was his first (long overdue) major title. In 2021, he was a major championship killer with no finish worse than T8 at the PGA Championship at Kiawah.

After winning the Mexico Open back in April, Rahm couldn't capture that magic at this weekend's major, finishing +6 and T48. All eyes will be on Rahm to see if he can complete the repeat U.S. Open victory.

Scottie Scheffler (+1,400)

The third guy at +1,400 is none other than the No. 1 golfer in the world, Scottie Scheffler

Scheffler went on a run for the ages earlier this year, capping it off with a dawn of the coveted green jacket. Unfortunately, he was off on the weekend and missed the cut, but that may spell bounceback for the 25-year-old. Look for Scottie to bring his best stuff to Brookline in June.

Justin Thomas (+1,400)

Coming in at +1,600 is PGA CHampionship winner, Justin Thomas.

In an epic battle on Sunday evening, J.T. claimed victory in a playoff win over Will Zalatoris. capping off his second victory at the event.

We know how good Thomas can be when he's on, and it's a very good shot he'll carry his stellar play on Sunday over to June's major. It may be worth keeping an eye on the former No. 1 golfer as we inch closer to the U.S. Open.

U.S. Open lookahead longshots

Will Zalatoris (+3,500)

Mr. Will Zalatoris deserves some shine in a spot like this.

While his odds of +3,500 aren't that long, we can see the PGA Championship runner up making some noise come June.

Although he's never captured a major championship, it feels like he's right there, knocking at the door just waiting to be let in. At 35/1 odds, Zalatoris should be on the top of everybody's mind.

Abraham Ancer (+7,000)

Abraham Ancer at +7,000 may be someone who deserves some eyes on him heading into the third major of the golf calendar. Although he hasn't picked up a win, Ancer finished T9 over the weekend at the PGA Championship, so that may have provided some much-needed confidence heading into this course. He finished T56 in this tournament last year, but expect him to provide a better result this year.
