2018 US Open Golf: Australian TV Times, Leaderboard, Preview

Nine Aussie golfers will tee it up amongst the world’s best players this week when the 118th edition of the US Open is played for the fifth time at the Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in New York.

Two-time winner this year Jason Day is a favourite with many experts to claim his second major and leads the Aussie contingent that also includes Adam Scott, who had to gain his near record 68th successive major start through sectional qualifying.

Shinnecock Hills hosted the US Open in 1896, 1986, 1995 and 2004 but has had a big overhaul since the last edition that has seen the course grow by 449 yards.

After his six stroke victory at the St Jude Classic on the weekend to reclaim his world number one ranking Dustin Johnson goes into the open as favourite (11/1) with most bookies, followed by Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, Justin Thomas and (all on 17/1) were Day, Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth, with Rickie Fowler and defending champion Brooks Koepka on 19/1.

Adam Scott and Marc Leishman were at 51/1 on the chart we checked.
