US Open Golf Picks 2021 – 3 Forgotten Players Set For Profit

This weekend, we’ll see one of the toughest majors on The PGA Tour as The US Open makes its way to Torrey Pines in San Diego, California. This is probably the toughest major of them all, which makes good value US Open Golf Picks harder to find.

Having said that, there are opportunities if you look hard enough and so here are my top US Open Golf Picks at Torrey Pines. Also, don’t miss out on our top US Open DFS Picks for this weekend.

Top US Open Golf Picks 2021

Gary Woodland is one of our top US Open Golf Picks this weekend.

Gary Woodland (William Hill Odds To Win | +6600)

Woodland didn’t perform well at the Memorial Tournament, missing the cut with 75-73 spots on Thursday and Friday. But that’s OK, I’m not ready to sink the guy just for that and he’s one of my top US Open picks this weekend.

Prior to the Memorial, Woodland had a pair of exceptional finishes at the Wells Fargo Championship (5th) and Charles Schwab Challenge (T-14th). Woodland will undoubtedly be a great play in his group with Webb Simpson and Martin Kaymer.

(Top 10): +600

Charley Hoffman (William Hill Odds To Win | +6600)

Hoffman ranks sixth in strokes gained approaching-the-green, and that’s certainly a statistic that’ll come into play this weekend. He also ranks 26th strokes gained off-the-tee, which could be even more important. Torrey Pines is known for having quite a bit of shag off the fairway, leading to a disastrous situation if you’re not careful there. Hoffman is having the best year of his PGA Tour career and a win at the US Open would be a nice feather in the cap.

Plus, he’s priced at a generous +700 for a top 10 finish, which makes him one of my top US Open Picks for this weekend.

(Top 10): +700

Adam Scott (William Hill Odds To Win | +6600)

Admittedly, this is a bit of a bias picked because Scott is my favorite golfer on Tour. Don’t worry, I’ve got plenty of real-life logical reasoning to get on board with him this weekend. While it’s usually a mixed bag of results for Scott, but the US Open seems to be one of his better showings. Since 2014, he’s finished inside the Top-10 three times (2014, 2015, 2019) and the latter-two of those were on the West Coast. He’s priced at +600 to finish inside the top 10 so he’s a worthy addition to your US Open picks.

(Top 10): +600
