The third golf major of the year, the U.S. Open, is set to kick off from The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts on June 16.

Justin Thomas is currently in a tie with Jon Rahm and Rory McIlroy at +1200 when it comes to the best golf odds to win. Thomas is coming off a victory at the PGA Championship and will look to win back-to-back majors at one of the most illustrious golf courses on the planet, while Rahm has hopes of repeating after winning the event last year.

Rounding out the top-5 in golf betting odds to win are Scottie Scheffler, the world’s No. 1 ranked golfer at +1400, and Dustin Johnson the 12th-ranked golfer at +1800. Scheffler has already seen some significant line movement after opening at +4000.

Two other golfers involved with notable line movement are Cameron Smith, who opened at +5000 and now owns odds of +2000, and Shane Lowry, who had opening odds at +6600 and now sits at +3300.

There’s already been one hefty wager on Tommy Fleetwood ahead of the tournament, where an individual put down $4,000 at +6600 for a potential payout of $264,000.

Fleetwood finished in a tie for fifth at 3-under at the PGA Championship.

In terms of the tickets and handle percentages, the action is fairly spread out for this field of golfers.

Scheffler owns the highest amount of tickets right now with 9.2%, followed by Morikawa at 6.4%, and Smith at 5.1%.

Tiger Woods had opening odds of +5000 and has seen that number fall to +8000. He currently boasts 3.5% of tickets and 3.4% of the handle.

Morikawa has seen the most money placed on him, boasting 12.2% of the handle, followed by Lowry just behind him at 12.1%. Scheffler rounds out the top-three in handle at 10.4%.
