Considering the crowded nature of talent in professional golf today, handicapping the potential winners of any major championship is a difficult effort, to say the least.
Figuring out which of those odds are the best to take on the eve of the 2013 U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club is equally difficult. Outside of usual favorite Tiger Woods, the rest of the field for this year's second major championship is cluttered.
In fact, according to Golfodds.com, there are 17 golfers whose odds range between 20-1 and 40-1. A look at those favorites gives little reason to be absolutely positive of any bet. At 9-2, Woods is the only golfer coming in at better than 20-1.
Despite the confusion and clutter, we're ranking our top-10 picks by odds from the worst to the best, but remember, this is just our opinion. How you bet your money belongs solely to you.
