Tiger Woods knee injury not a problem - U.S. Open favorite

Tiger Woods knee injury not a problem - U.S. Open favorite When it comes to the U.S. Open one name comes on everyone's mind - Tiger Woods. And this year the performance of the best golfer in the world will endure even more scrutiny, following his knee injury earlier this year. Fans, bettors, as well as odds makers are all wondering if Tiger Woods managed to overcome his knee injury and if he is physically able to take on the Torrey Pines. The fact that Tiger Woods revealed last night he has not walked 18 holes since his last round of the Masters at Augusta National in April, helped none to calm the voices. "Is my knee fully recovered? Probably not," Woods said today. Not the answer most have hoped for.

 But despite the knee injury and the long U.S. Open drought, one thing remains constant - Tiger Woods is the favorite to win. The online sportsbook BodogSports has listed Tiger Woods with odds to win the 2008 U.S. Open at 5/2, far, far away from the second choice - Phil Mickelson, who is sitting on 7/1 to be the Championship winner. But obviously even the odds makers are approaching this year's U.S. Open with caution - the usual EVEN odds on the top golfer are a distant memory. At least the British bookies are treating Woods right - he is 11/4 favorite at U.K.'s Bet 365. Keep in mind that on Thursday Tiger Woods will enter longest course in the tournament’s history, will he be able to win the U.S. Open? You may want to look at the underdogs...
