He didn’t need a walk-off eagle on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic to be considered the favorite for this week’s 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills, but it probably didn’t hurt Dustin Johnson, either. D.J. reclaimed his No. 1 slot in the Official World Golf Rankings and goes into the second major of the season as a deserving favorite.

He’s followed closely by a host of other former major winners (including Tiger Woods) bent on keeping him from his second U.S. Open in three years. There are a few numbers I like (more on those in a minute) and some fascinating Tiger prop bets you can make. Let’s dig right in to the odds, props and lines for the 118th U.S. Open. Odds courtesy of Bovada.

The favorite

  • Dustin Johnson: 9-1

It’s a testament to exactly how good D.J. is that he’s this big of a favorite in this deep of a field.

Other favorites

  • Rory McIlroy: 14-1
  • Justin Thomas: 14-1
  • Justin Rose: 14-1
  • Jordan Spieth: 16-1
  • Jason Day: 18-1
  • Tiger Woods: 18-1
  • Rickie Fowler: 18-1
  • Brooks Koepka: 20-1
  • Jon Rahm: 22-1

The move breaks the company’s reliable cadence that normally sees new product introduced to tour pros at the Quicken Loans National and certainly the national championship is an interesting choice. On one hand, it’s a huge stage and sure to garner lots of attention. On another, the adoption by tour staff might be somewhat less than normal this week, Thomas notwithstanding.

Earlier this month, Titleist Tour reps and members of the Titleist Golf Club R&D team began fitting players into the new TS2 and TS3 models, optimizing their performance and gathering their feedback and data.

As is there custom, there is no word from Titleist as to when the product might be available to the public as this is the first step in its “validation process.” As the U.S. Open progresses, we will update with any players who put the drivers in play.
