AK's Power Plays: 2024 US Open

The Power Plays for the 2024 US Open

What’s going on TJ Nation! Ann Arbor's Own Good Ol' AK Allen Klutts here bringing you another edition of the Power Plays: The Plays to Win You Money at the US Open!

A National Championship. From the beautiful Sandhills of North Carolina, The United States Golf Association presents The US Open. Scottie Scheffler continues his historic en fuego form and rolls into Pinehurst the clear cut favorite.

A Donald Ross design, Pinehurst #2 plays as a Par 70, tipping out at 7,550 yards. Crowned and tiered greens await the world's best. En Route to these greens the players will face sand, sand, and more sand.

The rough will not be as extensive to what a traditional US Open set up will feature. However, the sand and waste bunkers can create wacky lies that can make or break a player's chances at wearing the gold medal come Sunday.

As we travel Pinehurst's historic grounds, let us see who will be the Power Plays for the US Open!





Min Woo Lee ($7,300)

Many might feel this first Power Play comes to us from out of left field. When you look at the stats however, this play not only could provide great value, but also has the upside to be in contention late on Sunday. Min Woo Lee is our first Power Play of the week at $7,300 on DraftKings.

Why This Power Play Works:

Min Woo comes into the US Open riding some good form. With 4 straight Top 30 finishes, the Aussie is also nailing the key stat ranges this week, making him a very intriguing play.

Delving into the stats, Min Woo ranks 9th in SG Off the Tee this week. At 7.3K on DraftKings this is very attractive. Furthermore, Lee is peppering greens from the key range of 175-250 yards. Min Woo once again ranks 9th in this category, which considering early report of the greens struggling to hold iron shots could prove pivotal to success.

For Min Woo's many struggles around the greens, his SG Around the Green Bunkers and Rough is solid compared to his price point. Lee ranks 24th this week in ARG Bunkers and Rough, which is very attractive considering how much sand litters Pinehurst #2.






Adam Scott ($6,900)

Our second Power Play of the week was a late addition to the field. This crafty veteran makes for a sneaky play at Pinehurst, and is someone who can be a pivot off some major 6K chalk. Adam Scott, who has Top 20 Upside this week comes in as our 2nd Power Play at $6,900 on DraftKings.

Why This Power Play Works:

Adam Scott comes into the US Open riding some decent form. With 5 made cuts in his last 6 starts (Four finishes inside the Top 30), we have some upside at his price point.

Statistically, Scott has shown some impressive numbers coming into the week over his last 16 rounds. Adam ranks 16th in Strokes Gained Off The Tee, and 49th in Strokes Gained Approach.

Interestingly, while Scott has struggled at times to find the fairway, his Scrambling has been impeccable. Ranking 10th in Scrambling with how many greens will be missed this week could be a major advantage for the Aussie.

That's it folks for this week's edition of the Power Plays! We will be returning to you in a few weeks when we go across the pond for the Open Championship!
