2019 U.S. Open Golf Tournament

What a year is has been on the U.S Tour, Tiger Woods completing a phenomenal comeback and winning at the Masters, and Brooks Koepka winning his 4thmajor tournament in his last 8 attempts. Not to mention Koepka hasn’t even reached age 30 yet. Last year’s tournament at Shinnecock Hills Golf Course was captured by Koepka, who has not missed a beat since. This year’s U.S. Open tournament sure has a lot of anticipation to hold up just from the preceding events this year. This will be the 119thU.S. Open Championship. This year’s edition will take place from June 10-16 at the gorgeous Pebble Beach course in California. The U.S. Open is one of four majors in all of golf, along with The Open Championship, The Masters, and The PGA Championship. This will be the third major this year with The Open Championship taking place from the 14-21 of July at Royal Portrush.

Whale Insight on the Golf US Open

As mentioned previously, as the reigning champion from the 2017 and 2018 U.S Open, Brooks Koepka is in the hot seat as our predicted champion. Although, the entire field will be chasing after Koepka’s title, making it very difficult for the American to make it his third in a row. Tiger Woods’ incredible display at this year’s Masters tournament puts the 43 year old in good contention as well. Tiger will have a strong supporting presence at Pebble Beach, all of which will be taking Woods as this year’s champion. Before Koepka began his tear at the U.S. Open the last couple of years, Dustin Johnson was the previous champion back in 2016. Johnson is comfortably sitting at one of the top rankings on the PGA Tour, making him a top pick come June. The Englishman, Tommy Fleetwood made an impressive run last year and is looking for vengeance after finishing second in 2018. Fleetwood is currently ranked 17thin the PGA tour, but do not let the numbers fool you, as Fleetwood often plays exceptionally well as the underdog. Another name to look for at Pebble Beach who may not make the top pages is Xander Schauffele, who, after his performance at the PGA Championship was not playing half as good as he would like. Schauffele often trickles up leaderboards during major championships and has a real shot at capturing his first major championship in his home state of California.
