Corey Conners (+6600)
Conners does not have a notable performance so far in his career in the US Open. He’s whiffed on his only two US Open starts to date, but he seems to have a great chance at ending that streak this year. Conners will enter the 2021 US Open on the heels of 11 straight made cuts. In that span, he had a solo third finish in the Arnold Palmer Invitational, a seventh place in THE Players Championship, a T8 in the Masters Tournament, and a T4 in the RBC Heritage.
Phil Mickelson (+5500)
Mickelson is still fresh from his history-making win in the 2021 PGA Championship, though he missed the cut in his first event after that victory. Nevertheless, he’s good enough to be a sleeper pick at least. Mickelson has 31 starts at Torrey Pines South, and in those appearances, he’s won three times and finished inside the top 10 a total of 10 times. He first won there in 1003 during the Buick Invitational of California then won the Buick Invitational back to back in 1996 and 1997. That’s a very long time ago, but who knows if this is the year Mickelson finally completes a career grand slam?
Brandt Snedeker (odds)
Snedeker is still winless this season, but don’t take your eyes off him. He has made the cut in all of his last seven starts. Over that stretch, he’s also finished with a T6 in the 2021 Valero Texas Open and with a T4 in the 2021 Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Moreover, he has won twice before at the Torrey Pines (South), winning the Farmers Insurance Open in 2012 and 2016. He also recently finished with a solo third place in the 2020 Farmers Insurance Open.
