Joe Morelli’s U.S. Open picks

New Haven Register (New Haven, CT) - - SPORTS -

Justin Thomas: Lost his No. 1 rank­ing this week when Dustin John­son won in Mem­phis, but Thomas can swipe it right back with his sec­ond ma­jor cham­pi­onship. If so, he would be­come the first world No. 1 to play at the Trav­el­ers Cham­pi­onship since Greg Nor­man in 1996,

Ja­son Day: Has two wins on tour this sea­son. His game is in great shape for the type of test Shin­necock Hills will bring. Phil Mick­el­son: A sen­ti­men­tal pick? Maybe. Can he fi­nally com­plete the ca­reer Grand Slam? The odds are against Mick­el­son here, but of his six run­ner-up fin­ishes at the Open, four are in the state of New York, in­clud­ing here in 2004 to Retief Goosen.
