Readers of The First Call look into the crystal ball and offer their picks to win the year's third major being played at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts
Question of the week [June 13-19]: Who will win the U.S. Open at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts, and why?
I'm hoping for a final-round duel between Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy. The winner will be TaylorMade.
The reason for DJ vs. Rory should be obvious.
The person I am supporting to win the U.S. Open is Dustin Johnson. The reason is his firm play and how things do not hinder him when recovering from a bad shot.

I’m still pulling for Xander Schauffele to get his first major.
The U.S. Open winner will be Justin Thomas because he has the majors' winningest caddie, Bones Mackay.
Rory McIlroy will win. He has the talent and game.
