Jordan Spieth
lit the golf world on fire on Sunday with his back nine score of 30 at the Dean & DeLuca Invitational. His win catapulted him back into the forefront of the minds of the collective golf world (where he should have been all along). He’s not the favorite for the 2016 U.S. Open at Oakmont, but he’s as close to it as you can get without actually being the main man.

Here are some updated odds for the U.S. Open from Bovada.

Favorites

  • Jason Day
    : 6-1
  • Jordan Spieth: 13-2
  • Rory McIlroy
    : 7-1

Spieth is the value here. McIlroy has no value. He chuckled at the Masters this year when he was asked which major he’s glad he has out of the way already. It was definitely the U.S. Open. I wouldn’t be surprised if he never won another one.

Other Favorites

  • Dustin Johnson: 16-1
  • Rickie Fowler
    : 18-1
  • Justin Rose
    : 18-1
  • Adam Scott
    : 20-1

Fowler and Rose are good values here, though Rose has been nursing an injury and missed the BMW PGA Championship (he will also miss the Memorial Tournament).

Fringe Favorites

  • Phil Mickelson
    : 25-1
  • Hideki Matsuyama
    : 25-1
  • Henrik Stenson
    : 28-1
  • Bubba Watson
    : 28-1
  • Sergio Garcia: 33-1
  • Danny Willett
    : 33-1
  • Branden Grace
    : 33-1

There is not a ton I love here — maybe Matsuyama at 25-1 as he’s a ball-striking fiend. Watson, no. Sergio, no. Mickelson, heck no.

Everyone Else

  • Patrick Reed: 40-1
  • Brooks Koepka
    : 40-1
  • Tiger Woods
    : 50-1
  • Louis Oosthuizen
    : 50-1
  • Jimmy Walker
    : 50-1
  • Matt Kuchar
    : 50-1
  • Brandt Snedeker
    : 50-1
  • Paul Casey
    : 50-1

Tiger Woods has better odds than, among others, Justin Thomas, Jim Furyk, Martin Kaymer and Billy Horschel. So that’s pretty hilarious. There is a lot to like here. Koepka played great at the 2014 U.S. Open and should have won the Byron Nelson. Casey had a top-10 at the 2007 U.S. Open at Oakmont. Oosthuizen has probably the best swing in golf. Kuchar is playing great. Lots of value for the 50-1 guys.
