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.
