The U.S Open Form Guide

d of this week's U.S Open at Pinehurst No. 2, which Aussies are in form in North Carolina?

Martin Blake runs the ruler over all the Aussie hopes.

Adam Scott

In 12 starts his T15 in 2012 is his best effort, which is a little surprising. On form has to be the favorite, following up his win in the Crowne Plaza by contending in the Arnold Palmer Invitational. If the putter cooperates, he can win.

Jason Day

Has been runner-up twice in the Open, showing that he likes the grinding style of golf that is required. Against that, has played only a handful of times this year owing to injury. May need the run.

Matt Jones

Won in Houston this year to get into the Open as a top-60 player. Top class player but has not fired since that victory.

John Senden

Super-consistent player who finds ways to improve beyond his 40th birthday. Not to be counted out.

Aaron Baddeley

Came through qualifying, to show that his game is okay. Was in the final group of this tournament in 2007, but blew up to finish T13. Poor major record goes against him.

Geoff Ogilvy

World class player who is out of form. Playing on his 10-year exemption for winning at Winged Foot eight years ago, but has missed the cut at his last two tournaments.

Robert Allenby

Battling to keep his tour card, has used a career money exemption. Qualified to get in the field, but has never threatened to win a major.

Aron Price

A huge honour to play his first major, after coming through sectional qualifying. But has been moderate on the Tour this year.

Rod Pampling

Eighth start in a US Open, and came through sectional qualifying. But has not been starring on the secondary tour.

Brady Watt

First year professional who did brilliantly to qualify. Will be aiming to make the cut.

Oliver Goss

Top amateur not far from turning professional, got a start by reaching the US Amateur final last year. Was leading amateur at the Masters in April, but playing for experience this week.
