The 112th edition of the U.S. Open starts this Thursday June 14 from the Olympic Club in San Francisco, California.

It will be the fifth time the tournament will be played at the Olympic Club and the first since Lee Janzen overcame a five stroke deficit on the final round to win his second U.S. Open title.

That performance by Janzen marked the best final-round comeback in the tournament since Johnny Miller did it 1973 for his first major championship.

Last year we also got to see history being written. Rory McIlroy set 11 tournament records en route to an eight-shot victory at Congressional Country Club in Maryland last June.

McIlroy is back to defend the title, but back for one more major championship as well is former world No. 1 and three-time U.S. Open champ Tiger Woods.

Woods is coming off an impressive win after a last round surge at the Memorial tournament and once again there is a lot of expectation surrounding him.

The world's No. 1 and No. 3, Luke Donald and Lee Westwood are also carrying some momentum off recent victories and will be the two players that everyone will be watching trying to win that elusive first major.

Let's take a look at the players leading the futures odds for the U.S. Open according to vegasinsider.com.
