2024 U.S. Open Odds: How will Canadians fare at Pinehurst?

The 124th U.S. Open takes place at Pinehurst Resort in Moore County, North Carolina this week and there are no less than seven Canadian players competing in the third major of the season.

Mike Weir remains the only Canadian player to have tasted major success, his triumph coming at the 2003 Masters, but what are the chances of the septet in action this week changing that statistic?

Ahead of Thursday's opening round, we have taken a look at all seven players and analyzed their chances of coming out on top in the Tar Heel State.

Nick Taylor

  • Outright odds +30000
  • Top 5 odds +4500
  • Top 10 odds +1800
  • Top 20 odds +650

The highest-ranked Canadian player in the field at 32nd, Nick Taylor won his fourth PGA Tour title at the Phoenix Open in February, but he has struggled to maintain that form and has failed to record a top-10 finish in his 10 starts since.

With two missed cuts in his last three tournaments, the 36-year-old is unlikely to make a bold challenge for glory in an event he has three MC's from five attempts.

Adam Hadwin

  • Outright odds +12500
  • Top 5 odds +2200
  • Top 10 odds +1000
  • Top 20 odds +400

2017 Valspar Championship winner Adam Hadwin heads into the U.S. Open full of confidence after coming third at last week's Memorial Tournament, finding just Scottie Scheffler and Collin Morikawa too good for him.

The 36-year-old has had eight previous cracks at this Major and, although he has generally struggled to make his mark, he was tied-seventh in the 2022 edition and has undoubted ability.

While a victory looks out of reach, a top-20 finish at +400 is within reach.

Corey Conners

  • Outright odds +6000
  • Top 5 odds +1200
  • Top 10 odds +550
  • Top 20 odds +230
  • To make cut -225

Ranked 46th in the world, Corey Conners looks to have a great chance to break his Major duck and hand Canada just their second champion in the 'big four' events.

While the 32-year-old hasn't won since his 2023 Texas Open success, his precise approach play should stand him in good stead this week and a strong run is plausible.

Conners' last four starts have produced efforts of T13, T26, sixth and T20, and he looks to be on the cusp of putting it all together.

Taylor Pendrith

  • Outright odds +30000
  • Top 5 odds +4500
  • Top 10 odds +1800
  • Top 20 odds +650

World number 65 Taylor Pendrith broke his PGA Tour duck at the CJ Cup Byron Nelson in May and he followed that up with a solid T10 finish at the Wells Fargo Championship.

The 33-year-old's form has dipped over the next three starts, missing the cut at the US PGA Championship before going T21 and T33 at the Canadian Open and Memorial Tournament, respectively.

Pendrith took a share of 23rd position on his US Open debut in 2020, but he has missed the cut on his next two attempts and will be hoping for a better effort at Pinehurst.

Mackenzie Hughes

  • Outright odds +22500
  • Top 5 odds +3000
  • Top 10 odds +1200
  • Top 20 odds +500

Mackenzie Hughes has been hit-and-miss in recent weeks, with top-10 finishes at the Wells Fargo and Canadian Open accompanied by missed cuts at the US PGA and the Memorial Tournament.

After missing the cut in his first three US Opens, the 33-year-old has gone T15, T24 and T49 in the last three editions and there is the hope he can enjoy another solid performance.

Given his inconsistent form this season, a top-20 finish at +500 could be the safer play here.

Adam Svensson

  • Outright odds +35000
  • Top 5 odds +5500
  • Top 10 odds +2200
  • Top 20 odds +800

Adam Svensson has been going the wrong way in the world rankings, dropping from 58th at the end of 2023 to his current position of 89th, so it is hard to be positive about his chances this week.

The 30-year-old has missed the cut five times this season and he has failed to challenge in recent months, with his best result from the last nine outings a tie for 24th at the Charles Schwab Challenge.

He has limited Major experience with this being just his fifth crack at one of the 'big four', although he did make the cut on his U.S. Open debut last year when tied-60th.

Ashton McCulloch (a)

  • Outright odds +250000
  • Top 5 odds +40000
  • Top 10 odds +10000
  • Top 20 odds +3000

Amateur Ashton McCulloch will be competing in his first U.S. Open after carding an eight-under-par in the Canada final qualifier conducted at the Cherry Hill Club.

The 2023 Canadian Amateur champion landed the The Johnnie-O at Sea Island in March and his next five collegiate finishes have produced results of fifth, seventh, second, third and 30th.

This will be a good experience for him and making the cut would be a huge accomplishment on such a difficult course.
