US Open Golf 2012 Odds: Lee Westwood, Rory McIlroy And Tiger Woods Are Early Favorites

The 2012 U.S. Open is an event where Tiger Woods could conjure up some of his magic once again -- Woods can tie Willie Anderson, Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan and Jack Nicklaus for most career U.S. Open wins (four) by taking the tournament -- and oddsmakers have Tiger listed as the early favorite at 6/1. However, Lee Westwood (10/1) and Rory McIlroy (10/1) aren't far behind, so there should be plenty of intrigue on the links.

With the top-three ranked golfers in a single trio (Rory McIlroy, Luke Donald and Lee Westwood), Tiger fans should have a good idea about where to look to keep tabs on the other top competitors.

Here are early odds heading into the week (via OddsShark):

Tiger Woods 6/1
Lee Westwood 10/1
Rory McIlroy 10/1
Luke Donald 12/1
Phil Mickelson 16/1
Dustin Johnson 20/1
Jason Dufner 28/1
Matt Kuchar 28/1
Bubba Watson 30/1
Adam Scott 33/1
Hunter Mahan 33/1
Justin Rose 33/1
Zach Johnson 33/1
Jim Furyk 40/1
Keegan Bradley 40/1
Louis Oosthuizen 40/1
Martin Kaymer 40/1
Nick Watney 40/1
Rickie Fowler 40/1
Steve Stricker 40/1
