Bubba Watson (20-1)
It has been noted that Bubba usually hates the U.S. Open due to narrow fairways with its tricky setup and heavy rough. Simply put, those conditions do not favor Bubba Golf. However, Pinehurst No. 2 will offer a more wide-open look off the tee, and if you miss the fairway there is a better than average chance of having a bare sandy waste area lie. Bubba can hit all kinds of shots from bare lies. Does the 2012 Masters in a playoff come to mind?
