Before making any US Open 2022 picks or PGA Tour predictions, you must see what the golf expert has to say Salt Johnson.

The esteemed golf expert has been in the game for many years and knows what it takes to win on the PGA Tour. Before the PGA Championship, Johnson predicted that if Thomas hit his putts he could definitely win. Thomas had his best week of the season on the greens, earning over 1.5 strokes and placing second on the course. The result? He beat Will Zalatoris in a playoff to win his second PGA Championship.


In his previous set of predictions for SportsLine, he won the Masters for the third time in four years. Johnson backed up Scheffler, saying he was “on a streak where he’s been tough to beat, and I see him going at Augusta National.” The 25-year-old took his fourth win of the season.

Now, Johnson, the first producer of “Inside the PGA Tour” and a longtime ABC Sports golf producer who has worked with Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, has released his picks for the 2022 US Open, which are very safe.

Best US Open 2022 Expert Picks

A shocking choice from Johnson: he’s fading Viktor Hovland, even though the Norwegian is among the top 10 players in the world. He is priced 22-1 at Caesars and has six world wins at 24 years old. He has missed a cut this season and finished outside the top 50 once. But the latter came in his most recent event, the Memorial, and hasn’t finished in the top 10 since March. He also hasn’t cracked the top 10 in his first 10 majors. Hovland is strong off the tee, approach and putting, but has been horrible around the green (202nd in strokes gained).

Scheffler, meanwhile, has the golf pundit’s attention after dominating all year but appears to have waned since his Masters win in April. He missed the cut at the PGA Championship, but bounced back by nearly winning the Charles Schwab. He lost in a playoff to Burns and then tied for 18th last week in Toronto. The 25-year-old has four wins this season after earning his first on the tour of Phoenix in February. He has finished 15th or worse in four of his last five, but still has eight top-10 finishes, including two second-place finishes, to go along with his four wins from 18 events.

Johnson has also seen Jordan Spieth’s up-and-down season, but he knows that if he can straighten his putter, he can dominate again. The 28-year-old, a three-time Grand Slam champion, comes in at 22-1 odds at the 2022 US Open at Caesars and has four top-10 finishes this year. He has a win at the RBC Heritage in April and has been runner-up twice. He hasn’t done as well in the majors, he missed the cut at the Masters and tied for 34th in the PGA. Spieth ranks 47th on the Tour in scoring average (70,455), largely due to his putt (153 strokes gained).
