Latest First Round Leader Odds

The tournament favourite Dustin Johnson is a 16/1 favourite in the first round leader bracket and the man who recently reassumed his ranking as the World No. 1 is in fine fettle after winning the St Jude Classic last week.

The pressure is on DJ at a major tournament where he has prospered early on in the past, albeit his mid-afternoon tee-off time might not be ideal.

Rory McIlroy enjoys the benefit of an 8.02am start on Thursday morning and he is generally a very fast starter, so there could be some value in backing him at 25/1.

McIlroy is in a group with Jordan Spieth and Phil Mickelson, and it is Mickelson who catches our eye at 45/1 in the first round leader betting with Paddy Power (each-way terms on 8 places). Mickelson has experience of this Shinnecock Hills course as he tied 4th in 1995 and was runner-up in 2004, and the six-time US Open runner-up will be looking to complete a career Grand Slam this week.

'Lefty' has been in the top-five of the leaderboard after the first round in three of the past 15 US Opens, averaging 71.07, and he was ranked second after the first round in his most recent start on the PGA Tour.

Justin Rose also enjoys an early start on Thursday as he gets underway at 7.29am and he looks great value at 33/1 with Unibet (each-way terms on 6 places). The 2013 US Open winner has twice been in the top-five of this tournament's leaderboard after the first day and he has generally been a fast starter this year, with Rose ranking T7 for first round scoring average on the PGA Tour (scoring average: 69.10).

Finally, Marc Leishman is a player who will enjoy this links-style course near New York and he held the lead after the first round of the recent AT&T Byron Nelson, where he eventually finished runner-up. Leishman ranks 16th for first round scoring average on the PGA Tour this year (scoring average 69.60), and can be backed at 60/1 with Unibet.
