US Open betting tips: Who will triumph at Torrey Pines?

It's the third major of the season and form expert Barry Plummer has a handful of players to consider
 

After having the opportunity to see Torrey Pines at the Farmers Insurance Open in January, the question on everyone’s lips is how different are we expecting this famous venue to play? The US Open has always been a stern test, designed to challenge and often frustrate even the best in the world. So having said that, who will take the third major championship of the season? I think I have a pretty good idea, with three players who jump out from the form sheet immediately. But before I reveal who I fancy this week, here is all the information you need…

US Open details

Venue: Torrey Pines (South Course), California, USA

Date: June 17-20, 2021                                                                                      

Course stats: Par 71; 7,600 yards

Course summary: The South Course at Torrey Pines is a stiff test. The long, narrow Bermudagrass fairways are flanked by typically perilous US Open rough. Heavy bunkering and small yet fast Poa Annua greens also await the players, with three par-5s for players to negotiate. A low score is expected to win here, with only four editions of the US Open since 2000 providing a double-figure winning score.

Purse: $12.5 million

Defending champion: Bryson DeChambeau (-6)
