The world’s best golfers will converge next week at Torrey Pines Golf Club near San Diego, and the 2021 US Open has plenty of stories to follow. Can Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy get out of their funks? Can Bryson DeChambeau defend his title on talented ground at the 2021 US Open? Six-time Open finalist and San Diego native Phil Mickelson, will he finally come out of his childhood home and become one of the top contenders for the 2021 US Open? Fans will also be watching closely for Jon Rahm’s reaction after being forced to withdraw from the Memorial with a six-stroke lead after Round Three due to COVID-19.

William Hill Sportsbook lists Rahm as the 10-1 favorite in his latest 2021 US Open odds. Thomas, Johnson, McIlroy and DeChambeau are in a 14-1 group with several major champions Brooks Koepka and Jordan Spieth. Mickelson is a 50-1 longshot to win his second consecutive major after his stunning PGA win. Before you lock in the 2021 US Open picks or the PGA Tour predictions, you need to see who golf insider Sal Johnson is backing.

Media legend and quintessential golf insider, Johnson knows full well when a player’s momentum will make a difference. Ahead of last week’s Memorial, the golf expert had listed Rahm and Collin Morikawa among his best bets, citing both as players arriving with momentum.

The two were in contention all week, and Rahm had a six-stroke lead to 18-below par after his third round as he tried to defend his title. Then the Spaniard learned his pre-round test was positive for COVID-19 and had to withdraw.

This left the door open for Patrick Cantlay and Morikawa, and they struggled with clutch putts all day in the final round. Both hit 13 under, with Cantlay winning with a par on the first hole of the playoffs.

Johnson also knows how the players’ games match the courses. Before Phil Mickelson shocked the golfing world at the PGA Championship on Kiawah Island, the golf guru made it his business to include Louis Oosthuizen among his contenders. Johnson told SportsLine that Oosthuizen excelled on links style tracks like the Ocean Course and said he was “always a good choice in the majors.”

The South African came in with a 60-1 long shot, but was right in the middle of the action all weekend and finished four under to tie for second.

Johnson also knows when the booming players are about to break through. He ranked Sungjae Im among the top contenders ahead of his first Tour victory at the Honda Classic last season, then touted Tyrrell Hatton before recording his first Tour victory the following week. Anyone who took Johnson’s advice took a huge hit.

Now Johnson, the first producer of “Inside the PGA Tour”, a longtime ABC Sports golf producer who has worked with Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Greg Norman, and the founder of Best Stats Database golf club in the world, released its very confident 2021 US Open the pickaxes and they will surprise you.

Top Picks from 2021 US Open Experts

Surprisingly, the golf expert makes Justin Thomas disappear at the 2021 US Open, despite winning the players’ championship and being the second in the world. The 27-year-old is in the squad at 14-1 but hasn’t played well recently and has avoided Torrey Pines for most of his career. He has a top 10 and a missed cut in two tries. “His game has only been accurate once in the past six months, and that was when he won with the Players,” Johnson told SportsLine.

On the other hand, Johnson knows Spieth has been playing the best golf on tour in months. The 27-year-old tied for 18th at Memorial last week after a tough 76 first round, but it was only his second place outside the top 10 in the last seven events. He won the Valero Texas Open in April and has finished three more in the top three since starting his hot streak in February. The three-time major champion is 14th on tour for total strokes won and 21st for average scores (70.178). He is eighth in both strokes gained around the green and in the overall putting average.

The golf expert also knows that Rahm has been on a scorching scorching run and should come out hot after having to withdraw from the Memorial. The world No.3 player had a six-shot lead at Muirfield Village after the third round before his COVID-19 test came back positive. He has finished in the top 10 in 10 of his 17 tournaments, including the PGA Championship (eighth), the Players Championship (ninth) and the Masters (fifth, seventh). He leads on average (69.768), is second for total strokes gained and fourth for greens in regulation (71.25 percent).

How to make predictions on the US Open 2021

For the 2021 US Open, Johnson is boasting a big long shot that ranks well above 50-1. This veteran has a solid track record at Torrey Pines and is well positioned for a surprising race. You can’t see who it is here.
