Tiger Woods: U.S. Open 2013 Opening Rounds Tiger Watch
Despite a horrific outing at the Memorial Tournament, Tiger Woods is the heavy favorite to win the U.S. Open, which is the last major he won five years ago this week in dramatic fashion by playing through the pain of his injured knee in a playoff round against Roco Mediate.
At 9/2 odds, it’s actually tempting to bet against Woods considering his performance in Dublin, Ohio. However, Woods contended for the green jacket at the Masters back in April and he always plays his best when the stage is biggest, so don’t write off the World No. 1 golfer just yet.
Woods was off at his last tournament — the Memorial Tournament — but that was after an ugly public spat with Sergio Garcia, who approached Tiger in an attempt at reconciliation during practice earlier this week. With that now behind him and new girlfriend Lindsey Vonn in the gallery, Woods is primed for his 15th major win at Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pennsylvania.
The pressure will be on early, though, as Woods is grouped with Rory McIlroy and Adam Scott, the Nos. 2 and 3 golfers in the world, for the first rounds at Merion. With these three superstars playing together right off the bat, the pace is sure to be furious, so Woods will have a perfect opportunity to show why he’s still the World No. 1.
