Shaun Micheel, Paul Casey, and Brandon de Jonge are each tied for the lead, but Tiger Woods is still the individual favorite to win, while The Field has the shortest odds.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com, The Field is a 3/2 favorite. Other short odds to win are Woods (7/1), Casey (10/1), and Ian Poulter (14/1).

Woods didn’t have the best opening round, shooting a 3-over 74. Woods went without a birdie in the round and he bogied the final hole of each nine. He is currently tied for 48th place. Woods is a three-time U.S. Open champion and he won the 2000 Open at Pebble Beach.

Casey played a stead round, recording four birdies and two bogies. He finished his round with a birdie on the 18th hole. Casey has never finished better than 10th in a U.S. Open.

Poulter shot a 1-under 70 on Thursday to land in fourth place with four other golfers. Poulter had two bogies and three birdies in his round. He has never finished inside the top 10 in a U.S. Open.

The Field currently features two of the three leaders in de Jonge and Micheel as well as other under par golfers like Alex Cejka and Ryo Ishikawa.
