Chambers Bay will bring its own set of unique challenges to the 2015 US Open. Many players will complain about conditions or pin placements. Those players will have already psyched themselves out of the US Open. It is the quiet player, the one that absorbs the surrounding and sees what can be done while still expecting to have the course jump up and bite them are the ones that will succeed at the 2015 US Open.
A full field will be at Chambers Bay for the 2015 US Open. There is no player with any previous major championship experience at Chambers Bay but there are a few “things” that might fly under the radar. Attempting to pick a winner out of a full field event is a lot like a needle in a haystack. It’s time for the top picks of the 2015 USGA PGA US Open Predictions, Picks, Holes at Chambers Bay
|Rickie Fowler||Rickie was my early pick back in November to win this week. I see no point in changing that thought now. Outside of the few players that were part of the 2010 US Amateur, nobody has played a competitive round at Chambers Bay. In his last five majors he finished tied for 12th, 3rd, two runner-up finishes and a tie for 5th. He won the seasons "5th major" at the Players two starts back. His game can withstand the course and the stage is not to big.|
|Phil Mickelson||It is hard to believe he is winless since 2013 but he has three top-5s in his last five starts including a runner-up finish at the Masters and a closing flourish to 65 at the FedEx St Jude Classic. His last win was links style golf at the Open Championship. Chambers Bay will require a bunch of imagination and regardless of age, no player has more imagination than Mickelson.|
|Jordan Spieth||To say Jordan is having a good year is a bit of an understatement. He has two wins already including his breakthrough at the Masters. He also has been a runner-up three times and was tied for third in his last start at the Memorial. He has the game and mentality to handle Chambers Bay. Oh and he has his caddie, Michael Greller, who used to caddie locally at Chambers Bay. Players have to make the swings but a caddie that REALLY KNOWS about the track cannot be understated. He will know every angle, bump and curve possible and that is a benefit to Spieth.|
