Hideki Matsuyama 2019 U.S. Open Odds

  • Odds to Win U.S. Open: 40-1
  • DFS Pricing: $8,800 DraftKings; $10,400 FanDuel
  • Tee Times:  11:24 a.m. ET Thursday; 5:09 p.m. ET Friday

The popular refrain remains around Matsuyama’s game: He strikes it like Ben Hogan and putts it like Hulk Hogan. That might be a little cutesy, but it isn’t wrong. He ranks inside the top-five this season in ball-striking, but owns a negative strokes gained putting number.

At Pebble, where speedy greens could negate putting abilities a bit, in effect leveling the playing field, he might enjoy a small advantage, though it’s still very tough to believe he can consistently roll in speedy 8-foot par-savers – or for that matter, make one of ‘em to win his first career major.
