U.S. Open Golf 2012 Odds: Jim Furyk Favored To Win

Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell are tied for the lead entering the final round of play in the 2012 U.S. Open. Both men are currently at 1-under, the only golfers under par through three rounds. Furyk is a slight favorite to win, but if the course at San Francisco's Olympic Club offers daily reminders than anything can happen.

Furyk has 9/4 odds to win, and in three rounds he has never been over par. That explains his edge over McDowell who shot at 72 in the second round before pulling into a tie for the lead with a 68 on Saturday.
