3 US Open groups to keep your eye on

Group

Starting to get a bit excited for the 2017 US Open? Well, here are three groups you need to have your eye on.

Note: All UK times

1.51pm: Hideki Matsuyama, Rickie Fowler, Jon Rahm

Arguably the three best players in the world yet to win a major title. With a combined five victories on the PGA Tour this year, all definitely have the potential to make some noise come Sunday afternoon. Rahm, 22, is making only his second US Open start after taking low amateur spoils at Oakmont last year.

Kaymer Spieth Dj

2.35pm: Martin Kaymer, Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson

The past three US Open champions makes for one of the most exciting groups of the tournament. Johnson will be looking to become the first player since Curtis Strange in 1989 to defend his US Open title. Spieth has so far had another solid season while Kaymer is coming off his best Masters finish but, remarkably, hasn’t won an event since Pinehurst in 2014.

Day Rose Rory

8.09pm: Jason Day, Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy

The stand-out, must-see group. Will it be business as usual for four-time major champion Rory McIlroy has he returns from his rib injury? Day has had an up and down season being affected by his mother’s illness, while Rose will be determined to put things right after his Augusta heartbreak.
