The obvious pick is Inbee Park. She is having a fantastic year, she won the Women’s PGA Championship for the third straight year, and has six top tens in nine starts at the Women’s U.S. Open.

Lydia Ko is having a very good year, she is coming off a surprising missed cut at the Women’s PGA Championship. So you know that she will be fired up looking to rebound at the U.S. Open.
Stacy Lewis has been solid in her career at the U.S. Open making the cut in seven of eight years, including a runner-up finish last year.
Suzann Pettersen has a, surprisingly, spotty history at the U.S. Open. She has missed the cut at the U.S. Open in her last two years and has recorded four top ten finishes in twelve years.
Shanshan Feng has had a great year. She hasn’t missed a cut this year, she is ten-for-ten and she has seven top tens. Feng also finished T-8 at the ANA Inspiration and T-13 at the Women’s PGA Championship.
Feng has also finished in the top nine in two of her last four U.S. Open’s. Feng is trending in the right direction whether it be how she is playing right now or looking historically. If you want a contrarian pick, I would roll with Feng.
Anna Nordqvist has been hot of late, finishing inside the top fifteen in her last five events. But, she has yet to record a top ten finish at the U.S. Open.
Will that continue this year? Maybe, but maybe not. Either way, I’m not going to take the chance.
With all that said, I’ve got to go with Park. She is just too good to pass up. There are a handful of other quality golfers, but I’m taking my chances with Park.
