2010 Us Open

2010 US Open

The 2010 US Open will be played at the Pebble Beach Golf Links between June 17th - 20th in what as usual will be the second Golf Major of the year following the US Masters in April. The defending champion will be Lucas Glover who won the tournament at Bethpage Black as a rank outsider and he will be itching to defend his crown the best way he can in California.

It will be the first time that the US Open has been at Pebble Beach since 2000 when Tiger Woods destroyed the field to win by a record margin of 15 shots which is the biggest winning margin in a Major ever. Woods was the only player under par which highlights the test that Pebble Beach will offer in 2010 as the course runs along the coastline of California, the players will need to contend with the windy conditions that a links course offers if they are to be successful at Pebble Beach.

That win for Tiger Woods in 2000 was perhaps the best of his career and he will be the strong favourite to win again in 2010 fitness and form depending, all the other players will be chasing Tiger in the betting and on the course. The Europeans will be as always sending a strong contingent over with the likes of Sergio Garcia, Lee Westwood, Padraig Harrington and Ian Poulter among many others all likely to feature.

Pebble Beach hosts the US Open every ten years currently and is a course that the players seem to love playing at, all these ingredients will be added to make the 2010 US Open one of the bets yet.
