As the PGA Tour prepares to descend on Oakmont Country Club in Oakmont, Pennsylvania for the second of golf’s four major tournaments, all eyes – as well as betting odds – will be on the current world No. 1 golfer Jason Day as he looks for his fourth win of the 2016 season and his first U.S. Open title.

According to Bovada sportsbook, Day is currently a 13/2 betting favorite over the rest of the field heading into the U.S. Open.

Behind him though, is a veritable who’s who of world renowned golfers looking to best Day and the rest of the field to claim a major title.

Here are the top 10 favorites heading into the tournament as listed by Bovada.

Jason Day – 13/2

Rory McIlroy – 15/2

Jordan Spieth – 17/2

Dustin Johnson – 12/1

Rickie Fowler – 28/1

Phil Mickelson – 28/1

Justin Rose – 28/1

Adam Scott – 30/1

Hideki Matsuyama – 33/1

Henrik Stenson – 33/1

Falling just outside the top 10 are fan-favorite Matt Kuchar (35/1), this year’s Masters champion Danny Willett (40/1), two-time Masters winner Bubba Watson (45/1) and Sergio Garcia (45/1).

Whoever comes out on top at Oakmont this year, be it a past champion or a fresh face, will undoubtedly be a deserving champion and will have conquered one of the hardest courses on this year’s tour calendar.

Phil Mickelson told reporters that Oakmont will be the ‘hardest course we’ve played’ and Rickie Fowler posted a few videos showcasing just how difficult the greens at Oakmont are playing. But hey, the U.S. Open is referred to as the toughest test in golf for good reason.

The U.S. Open begins on Thursday morning with the first group scheduled to tee off at Oakmont at 6:45 a.m. ET.

Bryan Altman is, for some reason, an unabashed fan of the Rangers, Jets and Mets. If he absolutely had to pick a basketball team it would be the Knicks, but he’d gladly trade them for just one championship for any of his other three teams.
