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 will be played June 16-19 at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts.

The USGA sets up the courses to play extremely hard, including having thick rough and maximizing the length of particular holes. This makes U.S. Open golf betting difficult since there are so many different variables at play.

Even though the tournament is still a few weeks away, U.S. Open golf odds are already available following the PGA Championship. Jon Rahm, who is the defending champion, has the best odds along with Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy at +1200.

Rahm finished one stroke ahead of Louis Oosthuizen at Torrey Pines last summer, his first career major victory.

Early betting at BetMGM has seen Collin Morikawa (+2000) and Scottie Scheffler (+1400) get a lot of action. Morikawa has the highest handle at 12.2%, along with the second-most tickets at 6.4%. Scheffler has the most tickets at 9.2% and the third-most handle at 10.4%.

One bettor has put $4,000 on Tommy Fleetwood (+6600) to win $264,000.

The Country Club has hosted multiple U.S. Opens and U.S. Amateurs over the years but is most remembered for the 1999 Ryder Cup, in which the United States staged a historic comeback on the final day to defeat Team Europe.
