HUNTER MAHAN
Age: 31.
Country: United States.
World ranking: 22.
Worldwide wins: 5.
Majors: None.
Best US Open performance: Tie for 6th in 2009 at Bethpage Black.
US Open memory: Hitting the flag with his approach on the 16th at Bethpage Black, turning birdie into bogey.
Backspin: He hasn’t won since the Houston Open a week before the 2012 Masters and ran into a bad patch this year when he had at least one round of 74 or higher in seven consecutive tournaments. But form has shown to mean very little this year, and Mahan is one of the best ball-strikers on tour. A U.S. Open is made for his game.
