Best Bet to Finish Inside Top 5
Dustin Johnson has finished inside the top-4 in four of his last five US Open’s, has won at Pebble Beach twice in his career, and was the 54-hole leader at the 2010 US Open at Pebble Beach.

He’s also been a runner-up in the first two majors this season and is third in strokes gained off the tee (pivotal to stay out of the deep rough at Pebble Beach), and fourth in strokes gained tee to green.
Pick: Dustin Johnson (+175)
Best Bet to Finish Inside Top 10
Outside of one missed cut in his last seven events, Matt Kuchar has been on fire, posting a pair of runner-ups, fourth, seventh, eighth, and 12th place showings. The FedEx Cup points leader also won twice earlier this season.
This decade has produced the most 1st time major winners in modern era from 30’s on with 23 and 2 to go.Matt Kuchar has a modest US Open record,so did Kite when he arrived in 92. Kite’s best was T8 in 74.Kuchar T6 in 10 at Pebble. Like Kite in 92, Kuchar has won this season.1of2.

Kuchar also posted a very respectable T-6th showing when the US Open was last at Pebble Beach back in 2010 and he’s ninth in total strokes gained on tour this season.
Pick: Matt Kuchar (+350)
Best Bet to Finish Inside Top 20
The US Open has long eluded Phil Mickelson, where he’s finished a record runner-up six different times without winning the last major trophy he needs to complete the career grand slam.
Very few can pull this one off.

If Lefty is ever to win that US Open trophy he so desperately covets, Pebble Beach presents the best chance for the 48-year old to finally get it done. He won at Pebble in February for the fifth time in his career and it isn’t the tallest of tasks to expect him to at least be in the periphery of contention come Sunday. A top-20 finish by the five-time major champ should be attainable.
Pick: Phil Mickelson (+180)
Let's have fun and keep it civil.
