U.S. Open 2012: Cleveland Native Jason Dufner Tied For No. 6 At 25/1

Oddmakers have Jason Dufner in a tie for No. 6 heading into this week's U.S. Open.

Dufner, who sits at 25/1, is in pretty elite company that high on the list. The top five names are

Tiger Woods 13/2
Lee Westwood 11/1
Luke Donald 11/1
Rory McIlroy 14/1
Phil Mickelson 20/1

Matt Kuchar and Dustin Johnson also sit at 25/1 heading into the opening round.

Dufner got his first tour win in April at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. He followed that up with a May victory at the HP Byron Nelson Championship. Those wins, coupled with a No. 2 finish at the Crowne Plaza Invitational, have made Dufner this season's top money winner thus far.

Dufner is slated for a 4:47 Eastern tee time. A complete list of tee times is available here.
