U.S. Open Golf 2012 Odds: Tiger Woods Is The Favorite To Win

DUBLIN, OH - JUNE 02: Tiger Woods (L) and Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland wait in a fairway during the Memorial Skins Game prior to the start of the 2010 Memorial Tournament at the Muirfield Village Golf Club on June 2, 2010 in Dublin, Ohio. (Photo by Scott Halleran/Getty Images)

The 2012 U.S. Open begins on Thursday. Tiger Woods is the early betting favorite to win the Grand Slam event.

Tiger Woods had a very disappointing showing at this year's Masters tournament, but recently got another win under his belt. That win must have resonated well with the oddsmakers, as Woods is the current odds-on favorite to win his fourth U.S. Open title. Should Woods pull off the feat, he will become one of only five golfers to ever win the Grand Slam event four times in their career.

Behind Woods is last year's winner, Rory McIlroy, is hoping to become just the fourth golfer to ever win the U.S. Open title in consecutive years. Lee Westwood, Luke Donald and Phil Mickelson are also high on the list of favorites to take it all.
