About to start one of the most important annual golf tournaments, the US Open 2022. This competition will be held this time at The Country Club, in Brookline, Massachusetts, from June 16 to 19. The doubt that extends through the most important betting pages is whether Jon Rahm will be able to revalidate the title he won at the last US Open 2021, played at Torrey Pines, in San Diego, California.

These are the 5 candidates with the most possibilities to win the US Open 2022 according to the statistics and forecasts in the bookmakers.

1. Jon Rahm

Jon Rahm is, without a doubt, the big favorite, finishing his last round with a total of 72 holes, that is, a six under par, with birdies on the last two holes, which served as the culmination of this stupendous victory. Number one in the World Amateur Golf Ranking for 60 weeks (all-time record), winner of the US Open in 2021, winner of the San Diego Open in 2017, as well as the Irish Open and the Dubai World Championship. However, he should not be overconfident, as he is not alone in the competition, the Basque golfer has other strong competitors who follow him closely and that they can seize the title at the slightest carelessness.

2. Brooks Koepka

The forecasts point to Brooks Koepka as the most feared by the current champion and current number two in the world, Jon Rahm, not in vain made him fall in the World Match Play. Brooks is an American professional golf player who has accumulated tournaments as important as the 2017 US Open, at Erin Hills, and the 2018 one at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club. Nor should we forget that, also, in 2018, he obtained his third major in the PGA Championship, beating none other than Tiger Woods by two strokes.

3.Rory McIlroy

He has been champion in four of the biggest golf tournaments; The 2011 US Open, the 2012 and 2014 PGA Championships, and the 2014 British Open. This British golfer has no less than 20 victories on the PGA Tour and an additional 7 on the European Tour.

4. Dustin Johnson

Dustin Johnson is another American golfer with a long list of awards in his professional career. On the PGA Tour he has achieved, since he began his participation in 2008, nothing less than 24 wins and has broken into the top 10 a total of 106 times. As for the considered major tournaments, he has achieved victories in the 2016 US Open and 2020 Augusta Mastersa very recent title that shows the good form of this player.

5. Bryson DeChambeau

The golfer who closes the list of the 5 players considered as firm candidates for the 2022 US Open Golf title also has his origin in the United States of America. The youngest of those mentioned (with the exception of Jon Rahm himself) has a very promising future based on the brilliant career he is achieving. He is known with nickname of “the scientist”, for his ability to analyze this sport.
