Vegas Golf Odds On 2015 US Open
Every US open tournament is an incredible event. And the 2015 US open at Chambers Bay should prove to be just as exciting as predicted. Chambers Bay was the first golf course designed specifically for the US open, so that's historic in it's own right.
Designed by Trent Jones Jr, it's the longest course ever made (over 7900 yards). With only 1 tree on the course and many other customizations exclusive to this course, this will be one to watch on Fox.
About The US Open Golf Tournament
The United States Open Championship, commonly known as the U.S. Open, is the second of the four major championships on the PGA tour, and is also listed on the official schedule of the European tour. Staged by the United States Golf Association (USGA) in the middle of June, the tournament is intentionally presented so that the final round will be played on the third Sunday in June barring any weather problems, falling on Father's Day. Even though the tournament is staged on a variety of courses, Las Vegas odds on U.S. Open champions always require accuracy and length off the tee.
U.S. Open play is often characterized by very tight scoring that never ventures very far from par for the leaders. There have been several above-par champions, and a poor tee shot is punished with a high cut of primary rough, appropriately nicknamed "Open rough." The Vegas odds on U.S. Open golfers will almost always see long ball hitters like Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy favored, but accuracy is key too. Golfers like Brandt Snedeker and Steve Stricker bring that quality to US Open play.
And the curving, undulating greens need to be taken into account as well. Johnny Miller once described putting at Pinehurst No. 2 as "like trying to hit a ball on top of a VW Beetle." The Las Vegas odds on U.S. Open competition will also mirror the fact that golfers who did well at The Players Championship (TPC) several weeks prior tend to do well at the US Open, since the two courses often times demand similar skill sets. The wise bettor understands a little smart research can pay off handsomely. When you find a long and accurate driver that is putting the ball well and also put together a solid TPC showing, you have the recipe for a possible US Open winner.
The only one of the four major golf championships (the other three are The Masters, The British Open and The PGA Championship) to require a fifth 18-hole round the following Monday if there is a tie after four rounds, the US Open then goes to a sudden death playoff if a tie still exists. Annually one of the most watched golf tournaments around the world, the United States Open Championship very rarely sees a player dominate it. The Vegas odds on U.S. Open entrants usually pay off a bet on the player that learns to take what the course will offer, and takes only appropriately timed chances.
