Vegas shortens Kuchar’s U.S. Open odds, Tiger holds at 12/1

Ashton Grewal
Matt Kuchar’s hot run in 2012 continued last weekend with a win at the Players Championship. It was the 33-year-old’s first win of the season but his fifth Top 10 in 10 events.

The Las Vegas Hotel’s SuperBook responded by lowering the American’s odds to win the U.S. Open from 40/1 down to 25/1. That puts Kuchar among the favorites to win next month’s major. Only five golfers have shorter odds to win at the Olympic Club in San Francisco: Luke Donald (15/1), Lee Westwood (15/1), Phil Mickelson (12/1), Tiger Woods (12/1) and the favorite Rory McIlroy (8/1).

Tiger Woods’ odds did not drop despite a forgettable weekend at Sawgrass. Woods made the cut but finished 40th at -1. Rickie Fowler followed up his win at Quail Hollow with a runner up at the Players Championship. Vegas responded by dropping the youngster’s odds to win the U.S. Open from 60/1 to 30/1.
