Joaquin Niemann U.S. Open Prediction & Pick
Although Niemann doesn't have much U.S. Open experience, that doesn't mean he isn't a golfer to watch this week.
Niemann has played really well lately on the PGA TOUR, placing 25th or better in four of his last five outings — including a T-3 finish at the Memorial Tournament less than two weeks ago.
He may have missed the cut in his U.S. Open debut in 2017, but Niemann has placed T-23 and T-31 in each of his last two outings. Those aren't the best performances, but it shows that can at least make the cut, giving him a shot at a decent finish.
Erring on the side of caution due to recent play, a Joaquin Niemann top-20 finish (+150) at the 2022 U.S. Open seems like the safest bet.
