2022 U.S. Open
June 16, 2022 6:45 am EDT

This week, the PGA Tour presents golf fans with the 2022 U.S. Open.

Before I discuss my favorite longshot golf bets for this week’s 2022 U.S. Open, let’s take a look at the betting odds of past champions of this tournament to see if we can find any historical trends.

Here is a list of the last five winners of the 2022 U.S. Open Open including that golfer’s opening odds the week they won the event and the score that player posted to win: 

2021 John Rahm +1000 (-6)

2020 Bryson DeChambeau +2500 (-6)

2019 Gary Woodland +8000 (-13)

2018 Brooks Koepka +2500 (+1)

2017 Brooks Koepka +4500 (-6)

Now let’s shift our focus to my favorite longshot bets for the 2022 U.S. Open.

Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to finish in the top ten.

Mackenzie Hughes +1600

Canadian Mackenzie Hughes has posted some quality results on the PGA Tour this season. Hughes finished 16th at the 2022 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in February, ninth at the 2022 Wells Fargo Championship in May, and posted a 28th place result at last week’s 2022 RBC Canadian Open.

I also like the fact that Mackenzie Hughes has previously illustrated an ability to secure a quality result at this week’s PGA Tour event. More specifically, Hughes finished 15th at the 2021 U.S. Open.

Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to finish in the top 20.

Luke List +500

Last month, Luke List fired a first round 67 at the 2022 Memorial Tournament on his way to an eventual 26th place result. It is also notable that Luke List won his first event on PGA Tour (2022 Farmers Insurance Open) in January.

In relation to this week’s current listed 2022 U.S. Open field, in the last four rounds played on the PGA Tour, Luke List ranks fourth in strokes gained on par threes, 11th in proximity to the hole, and 16th in GIR (greens in regulation).
