Leading by six shots at the half way stage, Rory McIlroy is now just 4/11 with Paddy Power to make up for his Masters implosion by clinching the US Open at Congressional. The Northern Irishman is on 11-under par after two rounds and the bookies appear convinced that he will get over the line this time to land his first major.
Also in the group on two-under are Sergio Garcia and Zach Johnson, both quoted by bet365 at 40/1, Brandt Snedeker is 40/1 with and Stan James post 50/1 against Lee Westwood, who carded a second round 68 to lie a dozen shots behind McIlroy.
Like Westwood, Phil Mickelson is currently one-over par and Skybet price ‘Lefty’ at 66/1 to come out on top while defending champion Graeme McDowell on two-over is now 150/1 courtesy of Betfred to retain the title.
World number one Luke Donald only just made the cut and he’ll start round three fifteen shots off the lead, priced at 200/1 (bet365).
