The U.S. Open is still 59 days away, but Las Vegas oddsmakers already have one eye on Pinehurst.
Who’s the favorite for the year’s second major? Well, it’s not the Masters champion Bubba Watson, who opens at 30/1, according to GolfOdds.com.
Instead, it is Rory McIlroy, the 2011 winner, who is the favorite at 10/1 odds.
Tiger Woods – who underwent back surgery earlier this month and is uncertain for the year’s second major – is second, at 15/1.
Also at 15/1 are Adam Scott and Phil Mickelson, a six-time U.S. Open runner-up who will be looking to complete the final leg of the career grand slam.
Jordan Spieth and Jason Day are 20/1, with Justin Rose and Matt Kuchar at 25/1.
