Find out who is playing, worth a bet or a pick for your Fantasy Golf team for the PGA Tour's Travelers Championship
It was a thrilling climax to the US Open which saw a number of players climb up the Fantasy Golf rankings thanks to the services of Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson.
Team ’Duffer’ took the lead in the June monthly game after selecting Spieth as his captain for double US Open points.
Viking Valdemar leads the way in the overall game but failed to cash-in at Chambers Bay after picking Phil Mickelson as captain but still had a good points haul thanks to Spieth, Johnson and Rory McIlroy.
With just two games left in June, make sure your team is up to scratch to be in with a chance of scooping the monthly prize.
The PGA Tour heads back east to Cromwell for the Travelers Championship where the players will no doubt feel more at home than on the bobbly greens and undulating fairways of Chambers Bay.
Sergio Garcia was one of many who had something derogatory to say about the US Open venue and is back in action this week.
The Spaniard finished in a tie for second place at the event last year and is one of the favourites at 16/1.
Billy Horschel was another who failed to hide his discontent about Chambers Bay but railed in the final round.
The 2014 FedEx cup winner is also a 16/1 shot.
The other top ranked players in the field include Bubba Watson, Patrick Reed and Brandt Snedeker.
Kevin Streelman made PGA Tour history 12 months ago by birdieing the last seven holes to win. The American in a 40/1 outsider to defend his title.
It was a good US Open for South African’s Louis Oosthuizen and Branden Grace who can be backed at 22/1 and 40/1 respectably but will they be physically and mentally ready after such a tense final round on Sunday?
Brendan Steele put in a solid performance 12 months ago, finishing in a tie for fifth place, and is 45/1 to land his second PGA Tour title this week.
Adam Scott, Cameron Smith and Jason Day all put in impressive performances at the US Open so maybe Baddeley can take inspiration? A player who finished one shot better than Steele and just two off the lead last year was Australia’s Aaron Baddeley. He can be backed at very generous odds of 160/1 which seem worth an each-way bet to me.
Adam Scott, Cameron Smith and Jason Day all put in impressive performances at the US Open so maybe Baddeley can take inspiration from his fellow countrymen?
Morgan Hoffman was inside the top 30 at the US Open so looks decent value at 80/1 to me and Andres Romero played nicely in each of his four rounds at Chambers Bay to finish in a tie for 14th. The Argentine can be backed at the Travelers for an appealing 125/1.
As ever there’s always plenty of value as you look down the list with Martin Laird and Matt Every available at 140/1 and Ryo Ishikawa out at 175/1.
