Amazingly the third major of the golf season is this weekend with the US Open from the iconic Pebble Beach Country Club in California – just where has this year gone?

It's already been an incredible 2019 for a few of the market leaders, so who will win America's national championship on Father’s Day?

Rory McIlroy heads the field as a general 8/1 chance to win his fourth major championships after he blew the field away on Sunday to win the Canadian Open by a whopping SEVEN shots, if Rory can play like that again, which will be hard to replicate, then he will certainly take all the stopping but my fear for his supporters and potential backers is that he may have peaked to early and after missing the cut in his last three US Open attempts I am not interested in single figure prices.

When it comes to majors nobody goes into one more confident than Brooks Koepka and the two time US Open champions will be bidding to make history this weekend by becoming the only the second man in history to win three successive US Open titles, nobody can handle the pressure better than Koepka, but again in testing conditions and despite his excellent recent major record I would still want better than 9/1.

Co-second favourite alongside Koepka is Dustin Johnson also at 9/1 and for him it will be all about avenging what happened at Pebble Beach in the 2010 US Open Championships. DJ, went into the final round three shots clear but took a triple bogey on the second and then double bogey on third hole to finish up in a share of eighth place after a final round 82 and despite good performances at the track since that capitulation it will be still in his mind if he's in contention on Sunday.

Tiger Woods is just behind the leading trio at 12/1 and he won this title at this venue in 2000 and it's remarkable that 19 years on, again he's in contention to win his fourth US Open title. My worry with Tiger, and it showed at the PGA Championships when he missed the cut, is that his season was over when he final won his 15th major at Augusta in April and I can't see him in the shake-up over the weekend.

Three From The Tee

Patrick Cantlay @ 18/1 William Hill

My main selection this week is the man just behind the top four in the betting and it's in-form American PATRICK CANTLAY at the general 18/1 (but shop around for the best each-way places).

Cantlay is one of the in-form golfers in the World at the moment and he looks perfectly primed to go very close to winning his first major title at the age of 27. He won by four shots in his last start at the Memorial, which was his NINTH top 10 of the season and his fourth in his last five starts. His major record this year has been equally impressive with a 9th place finish at the US Masters and then at Bethpage Black at the PGA Championships last month his finished in third spot.

Phil Mickelson @ 55/1 William Hill

If Tiger Woods' success at Augusta was one the sport’s biggest fairy-tale stories then a PHIL MICKELSON win at Pebble Beach on Sunday could emulate that and at 50/1 with most bookies it could happen.

Mickelson has won at this venue FIVE times including his 44th and latest PGA Tour success earlier in the year at The Pebble Beach Pro-Am. The last time the US Open was played here in 2010 he accounted himself very well and finished just inside the top 10 in eighth place and Sunday (Father’s Day) it's the five times major champions 49th birthday, it's written in the stars.

Brandt Snedeker @ 50/1 bet365
* Odds correct at 09:06 BST on 11/6/2019

Last weekend BRANDT SNEDEKER landed the place money for us at the Canadian Open at 40/1 and "Sned" will go close again this week at 50/1 also with a number of layers.

Snedeker is playing some great golf with the highlight a round of 60 on Friday and when his putter is hot (like it is now) he's a very dangerous opponent, last week in Canada he finished in fourth spot with four sub 70 rounds and that was his third consecutive top 20 finish, which include a decent 16th in testing conditions at the PGA Championship and with two wins at Pebble Beach at the AT&T in his career and in-form 50/1 is too big.
