Betting And Shooting For Par In The 2020 U.S. Open At Winged Foot
Winged Foot is the Quintessential Test for 2020 U.S. Open
I’ve provided extensive coverage of the 2020 U.S. Open this week which includes golf stats, player performance and odds, props and information you can bet on. Winged Foot (West Course) is expected to be a most stern test, and I’ve provided some insight and information plus player profiles in a U.S. Open betting guide at TheLines. Also, I chip-in added course information, odds and betting activity on the top-ranked player in the world Dustin Johnson and his position in the market report and betting percentages on the top players to win at Winged Foot.

Past history and tough setups at U.S. Open venues is covered and the USGA added this comment from the man who sets up the golf course this week at Winged Foot.
“The setup you’ll see this week reflects the challenge this golf course presents,” said John Bodenhamer, USGA senior managing director and the person charged with setting up the golf course this week.
US OPEN BETTING MARKET SPLITS
Neither Mickelson or Woods are winning this week at Winged Foot, yet bettors are supporting them like they are in their prime. The odds may seem tempting on Tiger (+4500) or Phil (+10000 at DraftKings), but as DraftKings director of sportsbook operations Johnny Avello told me this week, “There are so many other golfers on the top of their game right now.”
“Tiger is certainly drawing some action,” Avello added. “But bettors also know that it’s tough for these guys to win, because they have to put four rounds together, which is difficult.”
I provide plenty of coverage and player percentage splits on popular players this week from DraftKings, BetMGM And William Hill in the tweet below, which noted the added interest for one bettor especially with a $45,000 bet on Mickelson (+7500) to win $3.375 million.
