How to watch the 2020 PGA Championship: Sky Sports Golf and Sky Sports Main Event.

The later than planned 120th US Open takes place this week at Winged Foot Golf Club in New York!

Main contenders

Dustin Johnson

The in-form player on tour at the moment winning two out of his last four tournaments and finishing runner-up in the other two which included the PGA Championship. The 2016 US Open winner rightfully enters this one as the favourite and will desperately be looking to add to his tally of a solo major win.

Dustin Johnson is at 15/2 to win his second US Open.

Bryson DeChambeau

He was the man in-form leading into the PGA Championship and performed well there with a 4th-placed finish, but he never genuinely looked like winning and was always playing catchup. However, his form has dipped since then, and he hasn't contended in any of the tournaments since. 

DeChambeau is at 22/1 to win his first major tournament.

Collin Morikawa

Morikawa won the PGA Championship in August with an emphatic performance signalling that he will be a contender for majors in the years to come. A similar performance will see him contend at the US Open too.

Morikawa is at 14/1 to make it two major wins in a row.

Jon Rahm

The Spaniard has had incredible consistency this year with numerous top-ten finishes, and he won the recent BMW Championship and was also briefly world number one back in July. He has yet to win a major though and will want that particular monkey off his back as soon as possible.

Jon Rahm is currently at 17/2 to win his first major tournament.

Rory McIlroy

The Northern Irishman has been solid rather than spectacular as of late, but he'll be fully aware that this isn't enough if he wants to add to his four major victories. He finished a mediocre T33 at the PGA Championship last month but has posted more consistent results in the tournaments since then.

Rory McIlroy is at 16/1 to win his first major since 2014.

Outsiders

Jordan Spieth

His form has been lacking this year which has seen his world ranking plummet to 67. However, he is a three-time major winner and still only 27 years old, so it would be foolish to discard his chances.

Jordan Spieth is at 80/1 to win the US Open.

Tiger Woods

His last win here was in 2008 after a playoff win over Rocco Mediate. Woods has been recovering from injury for much of this year and won't be considered among the favourites, but never count out the man with 15 majors to his name.

Tiger Woods is at 40/1 to win his 16th major.

Gary Woodland

Woodland is the defending champion after a win at Pebble Beach, but he has been rather unspectacular in 2020. Can he surprise the golfing world again and defend his US Open title?

Gary Woodland is at 66/1 to defend his title.

As always with golf, anyone in the field is capable of hitting red-hot form during the week meaning an unlikely candidate can turn it on and spring a surprise.

Course review

The US Open tends to be the most challenging of all the majors with winners often over par. A similar story could occur here at Winged Foot golf course. The course is long with narrow fairways and raised greens meaning they appear more prominent then they are when it comes to approach shots. This is the first US Open at this venue since 2006 which resulted in a Geoff Ogilvy win at 5 over par. The winner will likely have a better score than that, but the players will be in for a stern test at Winged Foot.
