|Date : 14th - 17th June | Course : Shinnecock Hills, 7445yds, par 70 | Defending Champion : Brooks Keopka|
Shinnecock Hills hosts it's fifth US Open this week with another true test of golf guaranteed. The course's big elevation changes and the usual tough USGA set-up, mean a winning score around par is likely. Won on it's most recent staging at Shinnecock Hills in 2004 by South African Retief Goosen, memorable for a windy final day where the average scores were 78.7. Only Goosen and Mickelson finished the tournament under-par - one of six runner-up finishes in the only major Mickelson is yet to win.
Brooks Koepka (22-1 to win) looks to defend the title he won at Erin Hills - winning at -16, the joint-lowest to par in tournament history. Dustin Johnson, fresh off a decisive 6-shot victory in the Fed-Ex St Jude, leads the betting at around 8-1, while Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Justin Thomas are next around 14-1.

2017 US Open Results & Odds
Brooks Koepka took the 2017 US Open by four shots - the biggest victory margin in the last six majors going back to Jordan Spieth's 2015 Masters win - also continuing a run of seven first-time major winners. One of the longest hitters on tour, Koepka started the final-round one-shot behind leader Brian Harman and the two contested the title over the final day before Koepka powered to the title over the final holes. An American who took the unconventional route, playing the European Challenge and regular tours, Koepka had only won once on the PGA Tour (2015 Phoenix Open) but the Ryder Cup player wasn't unfancied at 50-1 pre-tournament.
Despite being one of the longest courses in major history, benign conditions and soft fairways meant Erin Hills played as one of the lowest scoring in history including Justin Thomas's third-round 63 tieing the lowest US Open round.
It was a disappointing tournament for many of the leading players including World No.1, 2 & 3 Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day all missing the cut - along with three other players in the top-10, Henrik Stenson, Alex Noren and John Rahm. Pre-tournament 200-1 shot, Brian Harman held onto second after leading going into the final-round, tied in second with Hideki Matsuyama who continues to impress in the majors. Tommy Fleetwood had a creditable US Open, prominent all four days, he was the only European in the top-15. Rickie Fowler couldn't build on his first-round lead, eventually finishing in fifth.
Low-scoring and the absence of the leading players at the sharp-end of the tournament marked this year's US Open. Time will tell if Koepka can buck the current trend of single-major winners, but given his length off-the-tee and experience around the world, he should have a good chance.
