Looking for a player to pick in your office pool? One strategy is to consider players who have had the most success in the months leading up to this week’s U.S. Open, the third major of 2021.

The entire U.S. Open field is broken down below according to the Golfweek/Sagarins and the Official World Golf Ranking. The left column, or the “heat index,” is a player’s ranking based on his play the past four months. That can help you pick a player who is trending.

So far in the 2020-21 Tour season, the average ranking of the winner heading into the week in which he won a PGA Tour event has been 90.8 in the Golfweek/Sagarins and 91.6 in the OWGR.
