|After a nine-week break following the death of his father. Tiger Woods returns to the PGA Tour and is favourite to claim this week's US Open at Winged Foot.|
Tiger is expected to be more focused than ever to win the tournament, which wraps up on Father's Day, as a fitting tribute to his father. With this in mind Sportsbook.com has offered odds of 9-2 on him capturing the title he last won in 2002.
Last year Tiger finished second behind Michael Campbell but a difficult year has led to odds of 75-1 on Campbell repeating his victory.
Phil Mickelson, the current Masters Champion, is currently an 11-2 bet and in-form Vijay Singh is listed at 15-1 to win his first major of this season.
Alex Czajkowski of Sportsbook.com, said. 'The US Open is the second big tournament of the year and Mickelson is going for the Grand Slam, nothing is going to hold him back. With Mickelson on such a tear, and the return of Tiger, this will easily make the 2006 US Open the most bet on tournament yet.'
