Los Angeles Country Club will host a major for the first time ever when the 2023 U.S. Open begins on Thursday. World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler will try to continue his run of dominant play in big events, and enters as the 13-2 betting favorite in the latest 2023 U.S. Open odds from Caesars Sportsbook. He is followed on the PGA odds board by Jon Rahm (8-1), Brooks Koepka (17-2), Viktor Hovland (10-1), and Rory McIlroy (11-1). The 2023 U.S. Open field is playing for a total purse of $17.5 million that features a winner's share of $3.15 million. Defending U.S. Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick is a 35-1 longshot. Should you target the 28-year-old Englishman when making your 2023 U.S. Open one and done picks?
Would it make more sense to use a favorite like Scheffler, Rahm, or Koepka in your PGA one and done picks? Before locking in your 2023 U.S. Open one and done picks, you need to see what SportsLine DFS pro and PGA expert Mike McClure has to say.
The One and Done format is growing in popularity. It has several noticeable similarities to NFL survivor pools, with the main difference being entries are not eliminated with a bad week. Players pick one golfer per week and earn points based on their selected golfer's prize money for that tournament. Golfers can only be used once per season, and the point format makes nailing majors and elevated events critical.
McClure is a DFS legend with over $2 million in career winnings, and he's been red-hot on his PGA picks dating back to the PGA Tour restart in June of 2020. McClure uses his proprietary simulation model to analyze the field and crush his golf picks.
McClure has nailed plenty of One and Done picks, including Luke List at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. At the Farmers Insurance Open, McClure's top One and Done pick, Max Homa, outlasted the entire field to take home his sixth career PGA Tour victory and $1.566 million. At the WM Phoenix Open, McClure nailed Scheffler winning the tournament, taking home $3.6million. At the Genesis Invitational, he was all over Max Homa, who finished in second place and took home $2.18 million. At the Valspar Championship, McClure's top OAD pick, Tommy Fleetwood, finished in third place.
Last week at the RBC Canadian Open, McClure listed Nick Taylor and Tyrrell Hatton as two of his top one and done picks. Taylor would go on to win the tournament, while Hatton finished in third place.
Now, McClure has dialed in on the 2023 U.S. Open golf tournament and just locked in his one and done picks and PGA predictions. You can only see McClure's U.S. Open one and done picks at SportsLine.
Top 2023 U.S. Open One and Done picks
One of McClure's top one and done picks this week for the U.S. Open is world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler. As the betting favorite, Scheffler will likely be a popular pick in golf one and done pools, but McClure still sees value in targeting the red-hot 26-year-old. Scheffler has two wins in elevated events in 2023 and his track record at major championships over the last two years is unmatched.
Scheffler enters the third major of the PGA Tour season ranked first in total strokes gained (2.544), strokes gained tee-to-green (2.775), strokes gained off-the-tee (1.096), and strokes gained on approach (1.207). He is also sixth in strokes gained around-the-green (0.458), and McClure feels strongly that Scheffler will be in contention entering the weekend. You can see who else to back at SportsLine.
