The US Open – Lay Tip

Well what has happened to Jason Day and Rory McIlroy?  If they don’t get their acts together they could both miss the cut!

I was really hoping this would be the season where I would see the big three battling it out for the majors with two of them being in the final 2 ball on the Sunday afternoon but it’s not likely this week as the second major of the season is taking shape. All three have been really erratic this season I am wondering if there is a price with some bookie that none of them will win a Major this year!

Well on the plus side my favourite and most profitable player of 2016 has only gone and done it again, yes my cash cow golfer Dusty is at the top of the leaderboard once more.

Dustin Johnson

I remember in the US Open last year Dusty was one shot clear of Jordan Spieth going into the final hole and three putted from around fourteen feet or so to lose the match, two putts would have guaranteed a play-off. So from that moment on I have him marked down as a choker.

He has won 1 tournament each year since he turned pro and is yet to win one this season. He tends to play well in the first two rounds and then has a stinker in either round three or four which scuppers his chances of winning.

I should have laid him last week, but I changed my mind as a lot of the top players were absent because they were putting the finishing touches to their games for this tournament, I am kicking myself now as he had a stinker in round three whch ruined his chances of winning.

But although Rory and Jason are hacking around this week there is still the likes of Jordan and Sergio not too far behind.
