U.S. Open Golf 2012 Odds: Jim Furyk Is The New Betting Favorite

Jim Furyk held onto his lead following the third round of the 2012 U.S. Open on Saturday. He had new company atop the leaderboard, as both he and Graeme McDowell will tee off their final round on Sunday as the leaders at 1-under. They hold a 2-stroke lead heading into the final round at the Olympic Club in San Francisco.

As befits their status as the leaders on the final day, McDowell and Furyk are now the betting favorites as the tournament enters its endgame. Tiger Woods entered the tournament as the betting favorite and is still just five strokes off the lead, but his odds have slipped to 12/1.
