2014 US Open golf first round leader, Martin Kaymer from Germany, has been installed as odds on favourite in the latest William Hill golf betting odds for the second major of the season.

Kaymer, who opened up a three shot advantage with an opening round of -5, 65, at Pinehurst number two course in North Carolina, is now on offer at golf odds of 9/2 for the outright win by William Hill.

History is perhaps against Kaymer, who recently won THE PLAYERS championship on the PGA Tour.

No player has won THE PLAYERS and U.S. Open Championship in the same season, but the U.S. Open has in more recent years had the habit of delivering many breakthroughs and surprises, such as last year’s first time winner, Justin Rose from England.

In fact, no PLAYERS champion has ever finished in the top five spots of the U.S. Open in the same year.

Since Kaymer won a month ago at TPC Sawgrass, his golf odds coming to Pinehurst Resort and Country Club weren’t favourable.

Kaymer’s golf odds, however, greatly improved Thursday after the opening day’s play at the 2014 U.S. Open Golf Championship at Pinehurst Course number two.

It will be interesting to see if the former USPGA Champion, who needed only twenty-five putts in round one, can go on to make history and record his second major golf victory at Pinehurst.

There is no shortage of quality in pursuit, with 2013 Race to Dubai and FedEx Cup winner, Henrik Stenson from Sweden, second in the William Hill golf betting at 11/1.

Third favourite at 12/1 is Texas Golf Prodigy, Jordan Spieth, who came close to winning the US Masters at Augusta National, Georgia, USA.

Fourth favourite is six times US Open runner-up and reigning British Open Champion, Phil Mickelson, who is priced at golf betting odds of 16/1.
