Pick
100 (True) - US Open @ Draftkings

1* ($100) risked on the following golfers to win at the U.S. Open.
1* ($100) risked on the following golfers (Each Way) Top Five if available.
1* ($100) risked on the following golfers (Each Way) Top Ten if available.


Webb Simpson +2,500, +550, +250

Simpson is coming off a solid FedEx Playoff run as he finished third, sixth and 12th. He is one of the most consistent players from tee to green as he is ranked No. 7 in SG: Total and he is one of only five players in the field that is ranked within the top 50 in every Strokes Gained category. Additionally, he is ranked No. 7 in SG: Putting and he proven that a U.S. Open venue does not overtake him, and he is arguably a better player now than in 2012 when he won at Olympic Club.

Patrick Reed +3,300, +550, +300

Reed has a phenomenal short game where he is ranked 10th in the Strokes Gained category which will be a great asset here. He is playing well with two top tens over his last four starts and has missed just three cuts all season. He is an impressive 5-for-6 with a solo fourth among three top 15s in the U.S. Open. A negative could be no fans and he loves to feed off the energy whether it be love or hate, mostly the latter.

Patrick Cantlay +3,500, +650, +350

Cantlay has cooled off since a hot start to the season as well as a great early run in the restart. That being said, he is ranked in the top 50 in all but one Strokes Gained category and even without strong finishes, he has gained strokes tee-to-green in every start since January. Additionally, he has been negative in SG: Total just once in 10 starts in 2020. He has never missed a U.S. Open cut so the tough venues have not deterred him.

Tyrrell Hatton +4,000, +700, +400

Along with Simpson, Hatton is one of only five players in the field that is ranked within the top 50 in every Strokes Gained category. He is fairly accurate and is second on tour in birdies and ninth in SG: Approach the Green so the short game is a strength. He has the attitude that can grind at a U.S. Open venue and has proven he can do it with finishes of 6th and 21st the last two years. He fits the profile and might be the most underrated golfer in the world.

Matthew Fitzpatrick +6.000, +1,000, +500

He is second in the field in SG: Putting over the last 50 rounds which is important at Winged Foot. Also, while he is not very long off the tee, he is accurate and this is a venue that needs to be played from the fairway. Overall, he has played well at difficult venues and he has never missed a cut in four trips to the U.S. Open. He does have to get over the hump in a big tournament to win, but he checks a lot of boxes.

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
