Scottie Scheffler @ 4.50 (7/2)

Scottie Scheffler had an incredible year with 11 top-10 finishes, including multiple wins and a second Masters title. Despite being detained by police before his second round at the PGA Championship, he still shot 5-under 66. Now, after a T2 finish at the Charles Schwab Challenge and victory at the Memorial Tournament, Scheffler is the hot-favorite to win the third Major of the year, according to the latest golf US Open odds.

Rory McIlory @ 11.00 (10/1)

Rory McIlroy has made 23 consecutive cuts but has had a modest season with only four top-10 finishes. Despite strong metrics in strokes gained and driving distance, his putting has been a weakness. McIlroy has improved his finish in the last five U.S. Opens, and after being runner-up in 2023, he aims for victory in 2024. The 35-year-old is at 11.00 (10/1) to win the US Open.

Xander Schauffele @ 12.00 (11/1)

Xander Schauffele, formerly the best golfer without a major win, triumphed at the PGA Championship. He tied the record for the lowest opening-round score (62) and went on to win with the lowest overall score in major history. This win is expected to propel him to even greater success. The current world No. 2 is at 12.00 (11/1) to become the new US Open champion.

Viktor Hovland @ 14.00 (13/1)

Viktor Hovland is another name that will commonly pop up in golf US Open predictions 2024. The Norwegian failed to build on a successful 2023 campaign that saw him pick up three titles. A surprise decision to change his coach might have hindered his progress, but he has pressed the reset button by bringing in his ex-swing coach Joe Mayo. The decision seemingly paid off as Hovland secured a third place finish at the PGA Championship. Hovland is at 14.00 (13/1) to come out on top at Pinehurst this weekend.

Collin Morikawa @ 14.00 (13/1)

Betting odds for golf put Collin Morikawa among an elite pool of golfers who are considered the biggest contenders for the US Open 2024 title. Moriwaka has nearly perfected his swings this year, which has been instrumental in his T3 and T4 finishes at the Masters and PGA Championships, respectively. He accumulated over seven strokes on approach between the two tournaments. The former European Tour star is at 14.00 (13/1) to get his hands on the trophy.

History of the U.S. Golf Open

The first U.S. Open took place on October 4, 1895, on a nine-hole course at Newport Country Club in Rhode Island. Since then, American players have dominated the championship, particularly after 1911. Interestingly, since 1950, only golfers from six other countries have claimed the title, with South Africa leading the pack at five wins since 1965.

Past Winners of the U.S. Open

  • 2019 – Gary Woodland beat Brooks Koepka
  • 2020 – Bryson DeChambeau beat Matthew Wolff
  • 2021 – Jon Rahm beat Louis Oosthuizen
  • 2022 – Matt Fitzpatrick beat Scottie Scheffler and Will Zalatoris
  • 2023 – Wyndham Clark beat Rory McIlroy

Rory Mcllroy, who has one of the shortest odds to win US Open golf 2024, had to stay content with a second-best finish last time around. Wyndham Clark won his first career major at McIlroy’s expense. Three of the last five US Open titles have been claimed by local golfers, a stat that will considerably influence our PGA 2024 US Open preview.

As mentioned before, this is a tournament that American golfers have been incredibly successful in. This makes Scottie Scheffler’s US Open championship prospects even brighter.

The New Jersey man is on a roll this year, collecting five victories already this season, including a dominant Masters win in April. He has also triumphed at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Players Championship, RBC Heritage, and most recent PGA Memorial Tournament.

Red-hot Scheffler arrives fresh off a T-2 finish at the Charles Schwab Challenge and has failed to finish in the top ten only once since the turn of the year. He’s been leaving the competition in the dust with his pinpoint irons, ranking first in greens in regulation (73.90%) and strokes gained: approach (1.348).

So, there is not much room to question Scheffler’s title credentials here.

Xander Schauffele could not land a top-five finish in the US Open since 2020, but that could change this year. He has been in excellent form lately and also managed to win the first-ever major title of his career only a few months back.

He will face stiff competition for the US Open crown. While the PGA Championship victory will give him a massive confidence boost, we don’t think it’ll be enough for him to mount a successful title challenge. That said, we do foresee a top-five finish for the Californian.
