US Open 2022 Picks, Top Predictions, Course, Best Bets, Odds – High Golf Expert at Scottie Scheffler


Several golfers will try to turn back this week when the PGA Tour’s third major, the 2022 US Open, kicks off at The Country Club. When the event kicks off Thursday in Brookline, Massachusetts, Justin Thomas will be attempting to win a second straight major after winning the PGA Championship last month in a playoff with Will Zalatoris. Jon Rahm is seeking his second consecutive US Open after winning his first major championship last year at Torrey Pines. Collin Morikawa can win a major for the third year in a row along with his 2020 PGA Championship and 2021 Open Championship crowns. McIlroy has four major titles, but the last one was in 2014. Still, his win last week made him the favorite 10-1 in the latest US Open 2022 odds from Caesars Sportsbook.

Thomas (11-1), Scottie Scheffler (12-1) and Rahm (14-1) are also up in the US Open 2022 field, followed by Cameron Smith (20-1). Jordan Spieth (22-1), Morikawa (25-1) and Zalatoris (25-1) are also expected to be among the top contenders at the 2022 US Open golf tournament. Before making any predictions for the 2022 US Open or the PGA Tour, you should see what golf expert Sal Johnson has to say.

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. The picks from the founder of, the world’s leading golf statistics database, will definitely surprise you. You can only watch them on SportsLine.

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).

On the other hand, the pundit is keeping an eye on Scheffler, who has shaken off his failed PGA cut to post back-to-back top-20 finishes. The week after his misstep at Southern Hills, he was in position to win the Charles Schwab before Sam Burns stormed the field on Sunday. The 25-year-olds reached a playoff and Burns prevailed with his third victory of the season. Scheffler missed his fifth, but he’s still the best player on the tour. He is second in greens in regulation (71.4 percent), sixth in scoring average (69.43) and 35th in putts earned.

Johnson is also eager to see if Spieth’s up-and-down game can peak and earn him his first major title since 2017. He has won three, including the 2015 US Open in Chambers Bay, but hasn’t fared well in the two. first of this year. He missed the cut at Augusta and tied for 34th on the PGA, but finished in the top 20 in his other four starts since the Masters. That includes his win at the RBC Heritage and a second-place finish at the Byron Nelson in his next start. The 28-year-old is 10th in strokes gained from tee to green, but 153rd in strokes gained from putting.
