Dr. Roto’s Visionary U.S. Open Cheat Sheet
It’s time for another lucky person to become a millionaire in DraftKings’ Millionaire Maker. If you are the one person to have the highest score out of $205K teams, you will become my rich friend! That said, you have a better chance of being hit by lightning than you do to win the million bucks. I am not suggesting you don’t play, as much as I am suggesting that you don’t go spending your life savings in trying to become a millionaire.
Shinnecock Hills is a VERY hard and demanding course. My best guess is that about 20 golfers will be under par for the entire tournament. So, if you don’t have players who can be T20 or better, you probably are not going to win.
Dustin Johnson—No better player when he is playing at his best
Rory McIlroy—The sharps in Vegas are fading him
Justin Thomas—I will have about 20% exposure to him
Jordan Spieth—His current form is awful, but do you really think he has a bad US Open?
Jason Day—Love him and hope that he goes a bit under the radar
Rickie Fowler—Just got engaged (Fade??) but loves the links style courses
Justin Rose—Top current form on tour and I will own a lot of shares
Jon Rahm—Will use sparingly
Tiger Woods—If he can control his driver he will be playing late on Sunday
Brooks Koepka—Wish there were more par 5’s on this course for him
Hideki Matsuyama—Might be overlooked and could contend
Henrik Stenson—Don’t trust him here. Prefer him in Europe.
Sergio Garcia—Will fade
Phil Mickelson—Will be under exposed, but he could surprise
Patrick Reed—Masters winner could be a T10 here
Branden Grace—Always seems to play well on links style courses
