I have three U.S. Open tournament plays for you guys this weekend!
The U.S. Open is at The Country Club at Brookline this year. This course is no joke and will challenge the best golfers. The most enjoyable part about these challenging courses is we get to see the pros struggle just like us amateur golfers do daily!
I have three guys I am backing to succeed this weekend and will be taking two of them to place top 20 and one to place top 40.

The best bets and resources to make you more profitable
My two top 20 bets are Patrick Cantlay and Jon Rahm. Rahm has had a quiet year so far, but he is still one of the top golfers in the world. Rahm’s style sets up very well for him at this course.
To succeed at Brookline, you must have an accurate drive and success around the green. Rahm is first on tour in Strokes Gained Off The Tee, which I expect him to continue this weekend.
Cantlay has not had a ton of success in the majors in his career, but he is capable of having success at any moment. I would not be surprised if Cantlay is top five heading into Sunday with how good his game is. Cantlay has not missed a cut in the US Open in his career and has placed top 20 twice.
My one top 40 bet this week is on the youngster from Alabama, Davis Riley. Riley has excellent irons and has recently played the best golf of his career.
Riley has finished top 20 in his last six starts, including the PGA Championship at Southern Hills. He has been clicking on all cylinders recently, so I expect him to have another great outing this weekend.
