Wis. — Top five? Ha! Top 10? Not even worth me turning on my laptop. Top 20? Sure, if you want the silver medal. But I ain’t no punk, so here’s the what the leaderboard will look like Sunday night from 25th place up to the winner. Enjoy this while I go find that gold(-plated) medal.

While there’s a really long shot that Mickelson will be able to make his Thursday afternoon tee time (the six-time U.S. Open runner-up has not yet withdrawn from the event), Dustin Johnson is home waiting for his fiancee, Paulina Gretzky, to give birth to the couple’s second child. Johnson’s chances of getting to Erin Hills in time for some practice and to defend his 2016 title, though, are far greater than the 10-1 odds BookMaker.eu gives Mickelson of playing in the tournament.

UPDATE: Paulina did give birth to a boy on Monday. Ian O’Connor of ESPN tweeted the news. There were also reports that DJ had a late Tuesday practice round tee time with Brooks Koepka, so he may well be on his way to Wisconsin already.

What should we expect from Erin Hills at the 2017 U.S. Open? Nobody really knows the answer to that, which means nobody really knows who to predict when it comes to winning the tournament.

We thought earlier in the week that we would see an incredibly penal golf course on the edges, but the USGA remedied that by whacking down much of the knee-high fescue on Tuesday.

The only thing we’re sure of before this tournament starts is that the course will be long. It will be the longest in U.S. Open history, in fact, at 7,741 yards. Other than that, nothing is certain, but here are a few observations on a big ballpark hosting the second major of the PGA Tour season

This will be one of my primary predictions come Wednesday, and Jordan Spieth confirmed it on Tuesday in his press conference. “I don’t see par winning the tournament,” said Spieth. “I see closer to 5- to 10-under. Someone who has very good control of the ball off the tee will have plenty of opportunities to make birdies, given the conditions that we’re expecting.”

There are a couple of reasons for this. The first is that the course is playing at a par of 72 for the first time in 25 years. Many times U.S. Open scores are at or around par because par 5s play as par 4s and the USGA artificially enhances the final number. That won’t be the case this year.

Also, the fairways are wide, the rough is (now) shorter and if the wind doesn’t blow, there will be little protection for the greens and tight collection areas. Now, the wind will probably blow most of the week, but even if it dies slightly, the course seems gettable.

Mixing the uniqueness of Erin Hill with the importance of the golf season’s second major, you are going to want to watch every minute of action from the 2017 U.S. Open this week. Exciting action will be aplenty Thursday through Sunday, and you can catch it all both on your television and streaming live online.

Here’s a look at the schedule of events so you can watch as much golf as possible. Weather may dictate some changes to the start times below, and tee times have not yet been released for the weekend.

Who you are picking to win the 2017 U.S. Open is what everyone wants to know this time of year, and rarely has the decision at the top been more difficult. The massive field for the U.S. Open is loaded with stars, just not the two biggest in the sport: Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. Still, it will be a tremendous major that will play on Thursday as the longest in history at more than 7,700 yards.

ERIN, Wis. — Anybody can pick Rory McIlroy or Dustin Johnson to win the U.S. Open (in fact, I’m officially taking the latter to repeat), but what about some under-the-radar names who could mix it up with the big boys? I’m not talking about the guys who got through local and sectional qualifying and have no chance of actually winning the tournament. I’m talking about good players playing great golf who have a real shot of winning their first (or second or third) major championship.

After looking at the last few U.S. Opens and the recent state of the PGA and European Tours, there are a few names that stood out to me who could raise the trophy on Sunday evening at Erin Hills.

1. Jason Dufner (50/1): The Duf is being overlooked this week. He’s one of just three guys to finish top 10 in each of the last three U.S. Opens (Jason Day, Dustin Johnson) and is coming off a win at the Memorial Tournament a few weeks ago. As long as he doesn’t putt himself out of it on Thursday and Friday, I could see Dufner mixing it up over the final 36 holes.

When he’s really locked in with his irons, there’s nobody better. After walking the course here, it seems like there will be innumerable opportunities to hit all manner of blind shots and work the ball both ways, both of which Dufner is great at.

2. Tyrrell Hatton (100/1): My pal Andy Johnson, who runs The Fried Egg, thinks the winner this week could be a golfer who gains a lot of strokes off the tee but isn’t super long. The reason? This course is lengthy, but it doesn’t play as long as it should because there are a lot of downhill slopes off the tee. Also, it has massively wide fairways that straight hitters are not going to miss. At normal U.S. Opens, even the straightest guys miss fairways because they’re like two club lengths wide. Here, that won’t be the case, but some of the big boppers will still miss them.

Enter Tyrrell Hatton, who is in the top 25 in strokes gained off the tee but is fairly short at 289 yards with his driver. That tells me he’s been super straight and will probably hit most fairways on most days. Combine that with his two top 10s in his last three majors, and it seems like there could be something brewing there. Also of note: He’s No. 1 on the PGA Tour in strokes gained putting.

3. Brandt Snedeker (100/1): The same general theory with Hatton applies here with Snedeker. Toss in the fact that Snedeker has three top 20s in the last four years, and it’s easy to see him contending, even at a big ballpark like Erin Hills. The one disconcerting thing about Sneds is that he’s been nursing a wrist injury and had to miss The Players Championship because of it.

4. Billy Horschel (80/1): If Horschel wins a major, it will be the U.S. Open. He hit the ball maybe as well as he ever has a few years ago when he finished top 10 at Merion at the 2013 U.S. Open, and his game is currently sharp after a win at the AT&T Byron Nelson. I’m in love with the number (80-1) and think if he gets hot, you could see him as a national champion. He’s finished in the top 35 at this tournament each of the last four years.

5. Jordan Niebrugge (250/1): The former Oklahoma State Cowboy was my official sleeper pick this week. He finished in the top 10 as an amateur at The Open Championship a few years ago, is from Wisconsin and is playing some terrific golf (he has just one round over par in his first two starts on the Mackenzie Tour). Maybe I’m overplaying the whole “he’s from Wisconsin and knows the course!” thing, but Niebrugge himself said recently that he thinks he has a huge advantage from knowing what spots to play from and where to miss. I’ll take him all day at 250.
