2014 U.S. Open of Golf Sleeper Picks – Who Will Challenge Rory McIlroy and Adam Scott at Pinehurst?

Some 15 years since Pinehurst No. 2 last hosted the US Open, the world’s top golfers make their return to the storied course at North Carolina to compete in one of the most prestigious golfing tournaments in the world.

From June 12 to 15, big names and favorites like Rory McIlroy and Adam Scott will be there to give everyone a hard time, but major golf tournaments are not known for the favourites dominating. Rather, a field of outstanding talent comes together to play their best, meaning there is great value for bettors who make sharp choices.

In our U.S. Open preview, we named Graeme McDowell and Jason Dufner as two high-value sleepers. Below, we add three more to the list, and breakdown why they could work their way into your heart and wallet when the U.S. Open tees off.

Three 2014 U.S. Open Golf Championship High Value Sleeper Picks

Justin Rose

Justin Rose comes into this year’s edition of the U.S. Open as the defending champion, having won it in 2013. By winning it, Rose made history by becoming the first Englishman to reign supreme in the U.S. Open in over 40 years. This year, Rose will be aiming for another first, and that is to be the first player to win the U.S. Open in back-to-back years since Curtis Strange did it in 1988 and 1989. Clearly, it’s no easy task, but Rose, who has odds of +2,500 to accomplish the same feat, is still a player to keep an eye on.

[sc:Other240banner ]Although Rose failed to make the cut in the Memorial Tournament early this month, it doesn’t blur the fact that he’s having a terrific season to date. Rose finished in the top 10 in three of the last four events he’s participated in, including a share of the fourth place in The Players Championship in May.

Zach Johnson

Rose was in nobody’s radar last year, and then he swooped in and broke Phil Mickelson’s heart. Ranked no. 14 and priced at +4,000, Zach Johnson could just be that person who’ll come out of nowhere and lifts the coveted US Open trophy. Even though he finished at 73rd place in his previous start, the 16-year pro nevertheless has two top-three finishes this season and is well-worth a look.

Charl Schwartzel

A hearty +5,000 price to win the 2014 US Open rests in the shoulders of Charl Schwartzel. The South African is coming off a pair of strong showings in his last two starts. He finished tied for eighth during the Memorial Tournament, and placed 11th in the HP Byron Nelson Championship last May. In 10 events participated so far in the PGA Tour season, Schwartzel has seven top 25s and three top 10s.
