US Open 2017: Form stats for the second major championship of the year at Erin Hills

With the second major of 2017 teeing-off on Thursday, Andy Swales provides the stats for this week's US Open in Wisconsin.


"When asked many years ago what it takes to win the US Open, two-time champion Curtis Strange replied: 'Guts and pars'.”

Of all the tournaments in world golf, the US Open is arguably the toughest. From the first tee to the 72nd green, those taking part face huge demands on their mental capacity.

When asked many years ago what it takes to win the second major of the year, two-time US Open champion Curtis Strange replied: "Guts and pars."

From Thursday morning to Sunday evening, those in contention will need to possess huge powers of concentration, not to mention a sharp tactical nous and the ability to overcome any psychological setback - of which there will be many during the week.

For 2017, the USGA takes the US Open to a new venue at Erin Hills in Wisconsin. This Midwest course has well-contoured fairways and undulating putting surfaces, although water is not a massive issue.

The greens are Tour average in size, with touch and accuracy a key ingredient - as it is with most US Open venues.

Looking at both current form and US Open history, it is easy to find an argument to support the chances of most of the 'top 16 seeds.'

Aussies Jason Day and Adam Scott appear to be boiling just below the surface at the right time, while Jordan Spieth usually plays well at venues which require a strong mental agility.

With the top dozen or so golfers in pretty good shape right now, with the possible exception of Rory McIlroy and Hideki Matsuyama, the focus for every committed punter is to find encouraging value further down the order.

These could arrive in the shape of Kevin Kisner and Shane Lowry. The former has won already this year while Lowry appears to be back in business following a lean spell.

And never underestimate Brandt Snedeker who has a decent US Open record and often forges a good score out of difficult circumstances - and there will be plenty of these to cope with this week.
