Top American Player - Matt Kucher
The opening day of the US Open was a fairly disappointing day for the Americans as they only had one player in the top to at the end of the day's play. Rather surprisingly that player was Ryan Palmer who hit a superb two-uner-par 69 to put him in T4. His odds top finish as the Top American Player have now been slashed to 16/1 with Bet365, but it is Matt Kucher who tops the betting. The 32-year-old has shown good form coming into Congressional and with a score of 72 he is still very much in contention going into day two.
