BetVictor will pay out extra places when going each way 1/4 odds a place for the first seven places in the US Open at Olympic Club in San Francisco this week.
The Gibraltar-based online bookmaker announced the offer on Monday and it will be available for all each-way bets for the outright winner of the US Open placed before the tournament gets underway on Thursday 14th June.
Tiger Woods is favourite for the event after returning to form at the Memorial Tournament where he carded a nine under-par total to win by two shots at Muirfield Village less than a fortnight ago. The US Open was Woods' last major title which he picked up at Torrey Pines in 2008 and the world number four is 11/2 with BetVictor to win his fourth US Open championship title this week.
Ulster’s Rory McIlroy is 14/1 to defend the crown he won at Bethesda last year and lines up with fellow Brits, Luke Donald and Lee Westwood who will tee off together for the first two rounds. Westwood comes into the tournament on the back of an impressive five-stroke victory at the Nordea Masters last weekend and is hungry for an elusive first major victory. World number one Luke Donald is another hoping to claim a third consecutive win for Europe at the US Open and both he and Westwood are rated as 12/1 chances.
Dustin Johnson jumped ten spots to tenth place in the world rankings after his victory in the St Jude Classic at the weekend and along with four-time major winner Phil Mickleson, represent America’s best chance to keep the US Open title on home soil. Big Phil is 22/1 to win his first US Open in San Fancisco after finishing runner up on five previous occasions. Johnson will be hoping his long hitting can come good again to help him land his first major title at odds of 25/1.
England’s Paul Casey was forced to withdraw with an injured shoulder which opened the door for 14-year-old Andy Zhang who will become the youngest player to compete in the tournament since the second world war.
