The leaderboard at the 2013 US Open has reshuffled once again and we have a new odds-on favorite. Here's a look at your new golf odds pre-third round of the Open:


Phil Mickelson: 9-2
Tiger Woods: 7-1
Justin Rose: 7-1

Fringe favorites

Luke Donald: 15-2
Steve Stricker: 10-1
Billy Horschel: 11-1
Charl Schwartzel: 12-1
Rory McIlroy: 16-1

Long shots

Hunter Mahan: 22-1
Nicolas Colsaerts: 22-1
Henrik Stenson: 25-1
Ian Poulter: 28-1

Longer shots

Ernie Els: 50-1
John Senden: 50-1
Charley Hoffman: 66-1
Jason Day: 66-1
Padraig Harrington: 80-1

I hate Tiger at 7-1, that's just a ridiculous bet. He's never won a tournament when over par after two rounds and never won a major from behind and you're going to nearly make him the favorite? Come on.

I had Stenson at the beginning of the week at 66-1 so that's good for me, I guess.

One bet I really like is Hoffman at 66-1. Nobody really knows who he is but he's been playing some really solid golf all week.

Also kind of like Mahan at 22-1 for some reason.
