PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Gary Woodland may have a slight edge over Justin Rose on the leaderboards lining Pebble Beach, but in the eyes of oddsmakers it’s a dead heat heading into the final round of the U.S. Open.
Woodland shot a 2-under 69 Saturday, and at 11 under he will carry a one-shot lead over Rose into the final round as he looks to win his first career major. The duo have a significant cushion over their next closest pursuers, with Brooks Koepka, Chez Reavie and Louis Oosthuizen all three shots behind Rose and four behind Woodland.
The situation led the oddsmakers at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook to list Woodland and Rose both at 7/4 heading into the final round. Woodland started as an 80/1 longshot when odds first opened last month, while Rose opened at 16/1.
Koepka, who is looking to become the first player since 1905 to win this event three straight years, is next at 5/1 – the same odds he opened with following his PGA win in May.
