2012 U.S. Open Odds: Can Tiger Woods Make History?

The Olympic Club in San Francisco will play host to the 2012 U.S. Open, which begins on Thursday. The notoriously difficult course is expected to make for some tight scoring on the top of the leaderboard.

Tiger Woods is the early favorite to win, likely riding on the strength of a recent tournament win, his first in quite some time. The U.S. Open should prove fairly quickly whether Woods has really returned to form or if he will continue to struggle in majors. Should Woods prevail, it would be his fourth career U.S. Open title, putting him into a tie for the most all-time wins in the event.

Here are the top odds to win the 2012 U.S. Open:

Tiger Woods 6/1
Lee Westwood 10/1
Luke Donald 12/1
Rory McIlroy 14/1
Phil Mickelson 20/1
Dustin Johnson 25/1
Jason Dufner 25/1
Justin Rose 28/1
Matt Kuchar 28/1
Adam Scott 33/1
Jim Furyk 33/1
Rickie Fowler 33/1
Zach Johnson 33/1
Hunter Mahan 40/1
Sergio Garcia 40/1
Steve Stricker 40/1
