Cameron Smith leads the charge for Australian US Open contenders

The excitement is growing ahead of the US Open at Los Angeles Country Club to see if another Australian can come out on top in the prestigious major event.

The likes of Geoff Ogilvy and Michael Campbell have won the tournament in the past and Cameron Smith is expected to lead the Aussie charge this time around in California.

Smith a contender for the big prize

It has been a mixed first half of 2023 for Smith but the 29-year-old is still expected to be a serious contender for the US Open this year. 

Smith managed to win the Australian PGA Championship for the third time in his career at Royal Queensland but followed that up by missing the cut at both the Australian Open and Saudi International. 

However, Smith has found his form since the back end of April, after finishing in fourth place in Adelaide, seventh in Singapore, second in Tulsa and tied for ninth spot at the US PGA Championship. 

That sort of consistency speaks volumes and is why Smith is the favourite Australian to win the US Open this year at 29.00 in the Outright market. 

Day hoping to overcome final hurdle 

Having finished as a runner-up on two previous occasions at the US Open, Jason Day will be hoping to go one better this time around in LA. 

Day finished as runner-up to Rory McIlroy back in 2011 at Bethesda, Maryland before another second-place finish in 2013 behind England’s Justin Rose. 

Winning the AT&T Byron Nelson at TPC Craig Ranch in Texas in May this year put Day back on the map and will give him confidence he can go all the way at the US Open. 

The 35-year-old has come through a difficult time with back issues but is now an interesting outsider to claim the second major title of his career. 

Available at 36.00, the Queenslander is a player who could go under the radar and achieve something special this week. 

Scott hoping to roll back the years 

A former Masters winner and once a regular contender for all four majors, Adam Scott will be eager to get back in the frame for the US Open this week. 

The 2013 Masters winner saw his best finish at the US Open come back in 2015 when he finished tied for fourth place. 

Currently ranked at number 37 in the world, a good start for the Adelaide star could see him back in contention in California. 

The 42-year-old is 71.00 to spring a surprise and claim the title at Los Angeles Country Club on Sunday.
