Rory McIlroy Currently 6.00 To Win US Open

This year's edition of the United States Open Championship, which is set to run from June 18th to 21st, will take place at Chambers Bay in University Place, Washington. This will be the first US Open to be hosted in the state of Washington.

The defending champion, Martin Kaymer, will have plenty of stiff competition as he attempts to defend his title.

Rory McIlroy, the world's #1 golfer, already has two PGA titles to his name so far this year as well as 5 top 10 finishes. Through the first five months of the year, McIlroy has nearly $4 million in earnings. It should not surprise you, therefore, to hear that McIlroy is the current favourite to win the US Open at odds of 6.00.

Next up? Jordan Spieth, who is currently the world's #2 ranked golfer. Spieth has over $6 million in prize money so far this season and 2 wins to his name, including a win at the Masters Tournament which officially put him on the map. Spieth's game is sharp right now heading into the tournament, as he has a second and third place finish in his last three events.

As of this moment, Spieth is listed at 9.00 to win the US Open.


After McIlroy and Spieth, there is a fairly large drop-off to Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler, who are all listed at 21.00 to win. All four men are extremely talented golfers, and all four men are clearly capable of putting together a run at the US Open. Who would really want to bet against Phil Mickelson at the US Open?

Here are some of the more notable names that can be seen as we scroll down the list:

Bubba Watson, 34.00
Martin Kaymer, 34.00
Sergio Garcia, 34.00
Tiger Woods, 41.00

Tiger Woods is coming off of the worst round of golf of his career (he shot 85). Prior to that, however, Woods' had said that his game was rounding into form. Will we get some vintage Tiger Woods in this tournament, or is Tiger's game well and truly gone?


Will one of the two best golfers in the world win the US Open, or will somebody further down the list win the title?
