On Thursday, the best golfers in the world will head to Shinnecock Hills to face off in the U.S. Open.
Shinnecock Hills is a notoriously difficult course, even for the notoriously difficult tournament — the last time the U.S. Open was held there in 2004, just two players finished their four rounds under par. With wind a potential factor, there's plenty of room for a bit of chaos on the leaderboard, which can be a boon for bettors.
There's a ton of ways to bet golf, but the easiest way to put a bit of money down is to bet on four or five golfers to win and hope that at least one or two of them are within striking distance on Sunday. Below we've pulled together a list of golfers with medium to long odds to win this weekend, for anyone looking to add a little intrigue to the tournament.
