U.S. Open Golf 2012 Odds: Tiger Woods Remains The Favorite At Olympic

With a little more than 12 hours until the first group tees off at the 2012 U.S. Open, Tiger Woods remains the favorite to win his fourth national championship. The Lake Course at The Olympic Club will certainly provide an immense challenge for the world's top players. The favorites are consolidated into two main power groups. After Woods comes the Euro trio of Lee Westwood, Luke Donald, and Rory McIlroy. All three have held the No. 1 ranking in the OWGR over the past year but Westwood and Donald are still searching for their first major championship.

Masters champion, Bubba Watson, is in the middle of the pack at 50-1. Watson has only played twice since winning the season's first major and did not sound happy with the course setup on Tuesday during his media availability. Some more odds below:

Tiger Woods 13/2
Lee Westwood 11/1
Luke Donald 11/1
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
