  • Will Zalatoris and Matt Fitzpatrick (+333) are co-favorites to win the U.S. Open
  • U.S. Open money payout for winner: $3,150,000
  • Total U.S. Open prize money purse: $17.5 million

The third major on the golf calendar is the U.S. Open, historically considered one of the toughest tests in golf and provides a great week of golf betting.

It is no different this week at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts.

Saturday was much more difficult than the first two days and the scores reflected that. Any round under par was a great day. The two co-leaders at 4-under — Will Zalatoris and Matt Fitzpatrick — shot 67 and 68 respectively.

Jon Rahm is one shot back, while three players are two shots back, including Masters champion Scottie Scheffler.

When it comes to U.S. Open golf odds, Zalatoris and Fitzpatrick lead the way going into Sunday at +333.

Below are the updated odds following Round 3.

U.S. Open Favorites to Win

Will Zalatoris Odds to Win U.S. Open +333

Zalatoris played arguably the round of the day on Saturday to put himself in the final group Sunday. He lost in a playoff to Justin Thomas at the PGA Championship, so he has a good idea of what it takes to win.

Matt Fitzpatrick Odds to Win U.S. Open +33

Fitzpatrick will join Zalatoris in the final group Sunday and it will be mentioned dozens of times that he won the U.S. Amateur in 2013 at The Country Club. Like Zalatoris, he’s yet to win on the PGA Tour.

Jon Rahm Odds to Win U.S. Open +400

It wasn’t the greatest of days for the defending U.S. Open champion, but he kept things in check to stay within striking distance.

U.S. Open Prize Money

The purse for the U.S. Open is $17.5 million, with the winner’s payout being $3,150,000.

What To Know About The Country Club

The course is most known for hosting the 1999 Ryder Cup and Justin Leonard’s Cup-clinching putt, but it’s hosted 17 total USGA events, including the 2013 U.S. Amateur.

A few players in that event will be competing this week, including the winner Matthew Fitzpatrick, Scottie Scheffler, Corey Conners, Bryson DeChambeau, Cameron Young and Will Zalatoris.

The top feature of The Country Club is small greens, and the USGA raises the length of the rough for the U.S. Open, making hitting fairways imperative to having success.

With the lack of history at the course, most players will be going into the week without much knowledge.
