The 2019 US Open wraps up Sunday and Gary Woodland is the leader after 54 holes after shooting 69 points on Saturday. He is 11 in the last US 2019 standings and will be in the final group Sunday with Justin Rose, who shot 68 points on Saturday to get 10 sub-players, one behind Woodland. Rose has three full shots in front of Brooks Koepka, Chez Reavie and Louis Oosthuizen and is the favorite of the last odds of the American Open 2019 at 7-4 to win everything. Woodland is right behind him at 2-1 despite his lead. Meanwhile, Koepka (-7) is looking for his third consecutive title at the US Open and is the only other player to have a one-digit odds at 9-2. But before making your Sunday 2019 Open selections, be sure to see the projected ranking from the proven SportsLine computer model.
SportsLine's prediction model, built by DFS professional Mike McClure, allowed five major teams to enter the weekend, including Koepka's historic victory at the 2019 PGA Championship. He also described Tiger Woods' deep race in last year's PGA Championship, despite a 25-1 shot.
The model was also showcased during the 2018-19 season. Champion Rory McIlroy won the title at the Players Championship, making him one of the top two contenders from the start. He also correctly predicted Koepka's (9-1) win at the CJ Cup earlier this season. In addition, he rightly called the victory of Bryson DeChambeau (9-1) on seven shots at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. Anyone who has followed the model is up.
Now he has simulated the last round of the 2019 American Open and there are huge surprises.
The model calls for a major surprise: Woods, 15-time major champion in the week as one of Vegas favorites, is not even in the top 25 at Pebble Beach. Woods was 10-1 to start the week and followed the pace for the first two days before the bogeys backed up in his last two holes on Friday no longer give him the equal footing. After shooting a 71 Sunday, Woods is now 11-behind. Even though he has made miraculous returns during his career, he is too far away to be charged.
Another surprise: Adam Scott (-3) achieved a solid performance in the US Open 2019 despite a monstrous shot at 300-1. He has a much better chance of winning than his chances suggest. It is therefore a target for those looking for a huge salary.
Scott has been in great shape in the big leagues recently, finishing in the top 20 in each of his last four starts. He was also hot, finishing second at Memorial and eighth last month at the PGA Championship. Scott ranks five top-10 finishes this season and will have the advantage of fighting early Sunday against the poa annua greens, which tend to speed up and become more bumpy later in the day. .
In addition, the model says that two other golfers with an astronomical rating of 100-1 or more make a solid run for the title. Anyone who supports these outsiders could hit hard.
So, who wins the American Open 2019? And what long shots are dizzying the world of golf? Check out the odds below and visit SportsLine now to view the full US Open 2019 projection leaderboard of the model that has won five major golfers.
