Speith can tame Oakmont

pro2punter - Jordan Speith

After all the talk it’s nearly here, and Jordan Speith can retain his US Open crown by taming the infamous Oakmont course. There’s been so much talk of how hard this US Open will be, with fast as lightening greens, horrendously thick rough and dramatic bunkers scattered around the course for the top players to encounter. It will be survival of the fittest, and our expert has pinpointed the value for the second major of the year.

Jordan Speith is gradually coming back to form after giving away the US Masters at Augusta a couple of months ago. He’s come back firing and has shown real spirit with the culmination a win in Texas a few weeks ago to really boost his confidence. This course will suit his play where you have to rely on your putter most of the time. He’s one of the best on the tour and he will thrive on the pressure from the off. I can see him going wire to wire with his rivals failing to push him once he hits the front.

I really like the chances of Danny Willett this week. After winning the MAsters he’s played incredible golf and really should have won a couple of big tournaments after being at the sharp end come the final round. He can grind out rounds and is very patient in the face of adversity, which is what is needed around Oakmont. His tee to green is up there with the best and I love his temperament on the greens, he’ll need to keep his head with the undulations that the players face. Back to back majors is a real possibility and his odds look value this week.

Last weekend I put up Brooks Koepka who just fell short in second place. He’s showing he’s in good form and this is the time of the year he plays his best golf. The last two US Open’s have seen him perform extremely well and it’s the favorite of the four majors for him. At Chamber’s Bay he finished a respectable 18th and finished well on the Sunday. If he can keep in touch come the weekend then his strong consistent finishing will come to the fore and a place, and even a win is not out of the question.

I’ve been watching Kevin Chappell for a couple of years and am still surprised he’s a maiden on the PGA tour. He’s finished bridesmaid a few times this season and he can use that experience to push himself for the first win, and what a win it would be. Second in The Players at Sawgrass he can repeat that form at a similar course where the course bites back, and stay with the big boys until the Sunday.
