Matt Kuchar has once again flown under the radar ahead of the US Open but the world No.6 is feeling confident about his chances.
The 33-year-old American has arrived at the Olympic Club in San Francisco in superb form, having recorded five top-10s in 12 starts on the PGA Tour this year, including a two-shot victory at the Players Championship last month.
"My temperament and my game are suited very well for a US Open," said Kuchar.
"I drive the ball accurately. I'm a guy that also can manage my game well enough to make a bunch of pars and not get on bogey trains, so I definitely like my chances. A US Open is a good fit for me.
"My game's in great shape. It was so exciting to have won the Players Championship, to have beaten maybe the best field in golf on one of the toughest golf courses we play all year.
"That helps a lot with confidence coming to a championship like this, coming to a course that's this difficult and a field that's this good, knowing I've kind of been there and done it."
