Even without Tiger Woods participating in golf's 2014 U.S. Open, the TV schedule is still littered with former champions of the tournament to watch.
Justin Rose, Webb Simpson, Rory McIlroy, Graeme McDowell, Lucas Glover, Angel Cabrera, Geoff Ogilvy and Jim Furyk will all aim for their victory in the major, while Retief Goosen and Ernie Els go for their third. Most of them are long shots, but not the 2011 champ McIlroy, who enters as the favorite. He currently has 10-1 odds to win, according to Odds Shark.
Here's how to watch the U.S. Open and when golfers will tee off through Round 2.

McIlroy has the best odds to win the U.S. Open, but a loss would be far from shocking. He hasn't won a PGA Tour tournament since September 2012. This season, he only has one top-five finish.
And while he's also a former U.S. Open champion, he didn't come close to winning his second title in his last two attempts. He missed the cut in 2012 and tied for 41st in 2013.
Scott has three top-four finishes since the Arnold Palmer Invitational in late March. He just won the Crowne Plaza Invitational the last week of May. Scott also has a more recent major triumph than McIlroy, having won the 2013 Masters.
Of course, the U.S. Open has been Scott's worst major. He's never finished better than the top 15.
Phil Mickelson has the third-highest odds despite not having earned a single top-10 finish this season. He's also been cut and tied for 72nd in his last two major appearances.
This all means that absolutely anyone could emerge victorious this weekend.
