Father’s Day weekend wouldn’t be the same without the U.S. Open on the go, giving golf bettors their third major tournament of the PGA season. 

If you’re wagering on this year's event in Brookline, Massachusetts, we tee up in-depth player profiles for the 2022 U.S. Open golf field, shining the spotlight on the betting favorites but also some U.S. Open sleepers to keep an eye on before you make your U.S. Open picks and props.

Ranking the 2022 US Open field

We will categorize all golfers that matter for the U.S. Open with their odds to win, recent form, and some analysis so you can make smarter U.S Open wagers. 

Our categories

We've broken down the field into the following six categories:

Favorites

Favorites for the U.S. Open are the best in the field. They are priced at the top of the odds board with the highest expectations to win.

Contenders

These golfers are popular names that are likely to be in the mix but with a little bit longer odds than the favorites.

Sleepers

Our 2022 U.S. Open sleeper picks are the golfers that are in great form or have the skill set to compete at the U.S. Open and will likely be off the radar for most bettors.

Long shots

A long shot to win the U.S. Open carries a big risk, but also a big payout potential. These golfers aren’t the best in the field but could pull off the surprise upset.

Needs a miracle

These golfers are unlikely to be near the top of the leaderboard during the tournament, but you never know. These are the longest of odds that need to get very, very lucky to have a chance.
