Tiger Woods was surrounded by a large crowd of fans after completing his practice at the Pinehurst No. 2 Golf Course. The legendary American golfer is gearing up to tee off at the upcoming Major, thanks to a special exemption he received from the United States Golf Association (USGA).

In keeping with his tradition of practicing at the venue ahead of the Majors in 2024, Tiger was joined by his son Charlie and his caddie to take a few shots at the US Open venue. Following his practice, he was surrounded by a large crowd seeking his autograph.

Fans can watch him play this week at the US Open, starting Thursday, June 13, at the Pinehurst No. 2 Golf Course. Having won the Major three times in his career, he will be looking to add to the trophy count.

However, Tiger Woods has struggled with his game in the last two Majors he played in 2024. Although he made the cut at the Masters, a terrible third round placed him at the bottom of the leaderboard. He also struggled to make the cut at the 2024 PGA Championship. Hopefully, things will change for him at the US Open.

Tiger Woods' odds to win 2024 US Open

Tiger Woods has a slim chance to win this week at the US Open, with odds of +30,000, according to Fox Sports. While he has performed exceptionally well at Majors throughout his career, winning 15 of them, he has been struggling with his game recently. He has won the US Open three times, but due to injuries and surgeries, he has limited his participation in professional events.

Earlier this year, Woods played at The Genesis Invitational but was forced to withdraw from the competition. His performances at the Majors this year have also not been satisfying.

Scottie Scheffler is favored to win the US Open with odds of +300. He has won five tournaments this season and is playing arguably the best golf of his career. Fresh off his incredible win at the 2024 Memorial Tournament, Scheffler is the experts' favorite to clinch another victory this week.

Xander Schauffele also has a favorable chance of winning the Major, with odds of +1100. Rory McIlroy's odds are +1200, while Collin Morikawa's odds are +1400.

Here are the odds for the players at the 2024 US Open (as per Fox Sports):

  • Scottie Scheffler: +300
  • Xander Schauffele: +1100
  • Rory McIlroy: +1200
  • Collin Morikawa: +1400
  • Bryson DeChambeau: +2000
  • Viktor Hovland: +2000
  • Brooks Koepka: +2000
  • Ludvig Aberg: +2200
  • Jon Rahm: +2800
  • Tommy Fleetwood: +3500
  • Matt Fitzpatrick: +4000
  • Justin Thomas: +4000
  • Hideki Matsuyama: +4000
  • Cameron Smith: +4000
  • Patrick Cantlay: +5000
  • Max Homa: +5000

The Major Tournament will start with the first round on Thursday, June 13, and conclude on Sunday, June 16, at the Pinehurst No. 2 Golf Course.
