Scottie Scheffler won the first major of the 2022 PGA Tour season. He won his maiden green jacket with a virtually flawless Masters victory. Will he be able to duplicate his victory at the PGA Championship in 2022? That will be difficult.
This year’s major might go to any of the top players in the field. The only certainty for fans is that there will be no repeat champion, because Phil Mickelson will not compete due to his continuing legal battle with the PGA Tour. Tiger Woods, on the other hand, will be in the field, hoping to build on his recent triumph at the Masters. However, having a strong approach to the game will be crucial.
The U.S Open will be held at the Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts, from Thursday, June 16 to Sunday, June 19 this year, for the first time since 1988. Here’s everything else you need to know about the PGA Championship in 2022, including the best bets.

Who Are the Favourites to Win the U.S. Open in 2022?
When it comes to the PGA TOUR in 2022, Rahm’s results have been hit-or-miss. Despite making the cut in 11 of his 12 tournaments, he’s finished T-27 or worse in 3 of his previous five appearances, including T-48 in the PGA Championship.
Nonetheless, since the end of March, Rahm had two top-10 results and won the Mexico Open at Vidanta on May 1. When you combine that with his historic US Open history, it’s difficult not to think Rahm will win the tournament.
Justin Thomas, the 2022 PGA Champion, is another player to keep a watch on in Brookline.
Despite the fact that he is yet to win the US Open, Thomas has had a strong showing in recent years, finishing in the top 25 in four of his previous five outings. He also finished T-9 and T-8 in 2017 and 2020, demonstrating that he is capable of a deep run.
Only time will tell if Thomas’ victory at the PGA Championship is enough to drive him to his first U.S. Open victory.
Rory McIlroy is also another competitor that is a strong contender for the 2022 US Open. Former champions will be in attendance next month, including the 33-year-old Northern Irishman.
Over the last few months, McIlroy has been outstanding on the 2022 PGA TOUR. He’s finished in the top ten in each of his last three tournaments, including second and eighth at the Masters Tournament and the PGA Championship, respectively.
McIlroy’s dramatic comeback has given fans much to cheer about. If he can maintain his current form for another few weeks, he’ll be a player to keep an eye on at the event.
