Phil Mickelson shocked the golf world and turned back the hands of time by overcoming Kiawah Island to win the PGA Championship last month. One month later, playing a course he toured many times as a kid, Mickelson has the chance yet again to complete his career grand slam in the 2021 U.S. open. The South Course at Torrey Pines has the opportunity to be the canvas on which Mickelson paints an even more unlikely victory if he can finally win America’s national golf championship.
Much like the PGA, Mickelson enters play as a prohibitive underdog, currently a 50-1 choice in the latest 2021 U.S. Open odds from William Hill Sportsbook. Jon Rahm, who recently lost a chance to win the Memorial Tournament due to a positive COVID-19 test during the third round, is the favorite at 10-1 on the US Open 2021 odds board for Torrey Pines.
