Brookline, the scene of one of the rowdiest Ryder Cup encounters, plays host to this year's US Open Golf Tournament.
It is a course that does not suffer fools gladly but rewards those who are quite adept with the driver and, having read the opinions of a few 'experts', i've come up with a shortlist of those i feel may do well over the next 4 days
Rory McIlroy (10/1 fav) won the Canadian last week but it's a rarity in golf for a player to win two tournaments on the trot, so though i've left him out of calculations, it wouldn't be a massive surprise were he to win.

Those kind folk at Bet365 have given me a free £5 bet - well, Denise can afford it ;-) - which, after very careful consideration, i have split e.w. on our very own Matt Fitzpatrick @ 28/1 to 8 places. He has form at this tricky course - won amateur tournament back in 2013 - and is in decent form, though he faded somewhat in Canada.

My idea of the winner is Justin Thomas, in contention throughout last week and will want revenge on McIlroy. I have £2 on him @ 12/1 with 365

The rest of my bets are;

£1 e.w. Corey Conners @ 50/1 - placed for me last week in Canada - to 8 places - 365
£1 e.w. Louis Oosthuzen @ 80/1 - big tournament player - to 8 places - 365
£1 e.w. Brooks Koepka @ 50/1 - newly wed, in a good place, fit - to 8 places - 365
£1 e.w. Ryan Fox @ 175/1 - in the form of his life in minor tournaments - 10 places - Sky

So that's a fiver free bet and a tenner of my own dosh. Let the games begin:-)

I followed you Ken and put my £5 free bet on Fitzpatrick. He's had a good day today!
There are few serial winners now in golf, unlike the days of Nicklaus, Palmer, Player etc. RM deviated from his usual routine of having a great round followed by poor performance in winning The Canadian Open. Sometimes the other way round. He seems to be going backwards at the moment. MF has done the opposite so far. Looking at the scores so far today, it looks like the course is playing difficult. I haven't got Sky, so can only look at the leader board on the net.

Brookline was the scene of the infamous green invasion by the Americans after Justin Leonard sank a tramliner. And the European player had yet to putt. Olazabal, I think. Not sure.
Mark James wrote a book about it called Into The Bear Pit. Sorry Ken, none of that has anything to do with betting!

I alluded to that incident in my opening sentence 10C :-)

Also, 10C, i think RM is more at home in tournaments like the Canadian which, i think, he has won twice before?
You did Ken, but no details given.
I've got a free £5 bet. Was going to chuck it on McIlroy at 4/1. Glad I didn't now.

I was with Jon Rahm in almost every tournament last season but he seemed to have lost his way a tad in this season's earlier tournaments. However, when i went to bed last night, he held a one stroke lead approaching the 18th, which he double-bogeyed. If he can put that behind him, he will be in there at the death and he has the big match-winning mentality that some of those around him do not possess.

To put the above bet in some sort of context, these are the groups from which the 4 players were chosen;
I'm on the edge of my seat Ken. Its been a very exiting tournament but nerve wracking now!.

Absolutely superb bunker shot on the 18th enables Matt to take the honours. No qualms in backing him, and Zalatoris, in future tournaments.

Ker-ching! :-)))
