2012 U.S. Open Golf Odds: Jim Furyk New Favorite, Tiger Woods Not A Longshot Yet

Tiger Woods had been the betting favorite ever since before the first shot was taken at the 2012 U.S. Open. Sunday's fourth round will mark the first day that the three-time champion has not been the betting favorite in the prestigious Grand Slam event. Of course, falling five strokes off the lead after a 5-oiver third round may have something to do with that.

The new betting favorite is Jim Furyk, with Graeme McDowell close behind. As the fourth round begins, Furyk and McDowell are co-holders of the lead, both sitting atop the leaderboard at 1-under.

Here are the final odds to win the 2012 U.S. Open:

Jim Furyk 9/4
Graeme McDowell 5/2
Lee Westwood 6/1
Tiger Woods 12/1
Fredrik Jacobson 12/1
Ernie Els 15/1
Nicolas Colsaerts 20/1
Jason Dufner 25/1
Webb Simpson 25/1
Blake Adams 40/1
John Senden 50/1
Matt Kuchar 50/1
Martin Kaymer 50/1
Kevin Chappell 80/1
Retief Goosen 80/1
John Peterson 100/1
Beau Hossler 100/1
Justin Rose 100/1
Sergio Garcia 100/1
Field (all others) 15/1
