2012 U.S. Open Odds: Tiger Woods The Favorite, Jason Dufner Near Top

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. Some of the favored golfers this year:

Tiger Woods 13/2
Lee Westwood 11/1
Luke Donald 11/1
Rory McIlroy 14/1
Phil Mickelson 20/1
Dustin Johnson 25/1
Jason Dufner 25/1
Matt Kuchar 25/1
Justin Rose 28/1
Adam Scott 33/1
Jim Furyk 33/1
Rickie Fowler 33/1
Zach Johnson 33/1
Bubba Watson 40/1
Hunter Mahan 40/1
Sergio Garcia 40/1
Steve Stricker 40/1

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.
