Rory McIlroy

The 2011 US Open winner came agonisingly close to completing the collection of Majors when finishing second in the US Masters earlier in April. The Irishman has a decent recent record in the US Open having placed in the top 10 in each of the last three editions and heads into this on a high after winning last weekend’s Canadian Open, which helped him climb to third in the world rankings. Could Rory McIlroy be about to end his eight-year wait for another Major triumph?

Justin Thomas

Justin Thomas won the US PGA Championship for the second time in his career after beating Will Zalatoris in a playoff a few weeks ago. You’d have thought that would give the 29-year-old plenty of momentum but he followed up by missing the cut at the Charles Schwab Challenge. His best performance in the US Open came in 2020 when tying for eighth.

Scottie Scheffler

The world’s leading player after climbing to the top of the rankings in March, Scottie Scheffler has won four tournaments in 2022 including the US Masters. The 25-year-old has failed to finish higher than seventh in four previous cracks at the US Open but he’s taken his game to new heights this year. He did miss the cut at last month’s US PGA Championship, however.

Jon Rahm

Jon Rahm is the defending champion after shooting six-under-par to win the US Open 12 months ago but 2022’s been a bit rough for the Spaniard as he lost his spot at the top of the world rankings and failed to get in the mix for the first two Majors of the year.
