Mike Norman rounds up the latest scores and betting at the US Open, including another disastrous round for a certain Tiger Woods...


"Matched at a low of 1.715/7 to make the cut Woods is now not surprisingly trading at 12.011/1 to be around at the weekend, with the 'No' option in the Woods To Make The Cut market being available at just 1.051/20."

Tiger Woods looks set to miss the halfway cut at the US Open after opening with a first round 10 over par score of 80 on Thursday.

The former world number one, who hasn't tasted major success since landing this title back in 2008, trails first round leaders Dustin Johnson and Henrik Stenson by fully 15 shots, and currently sits in a tie for 152nd place in a field of 156.

Woods started his round in the same fashion that he has started so many this season, with an opening hole bogie. Another bogie at the second confirmed his poor start and he was quickly four over par walking off the sixth green.

A steadying four-hole stretch of pars promised to be a turning point for the now world number 195 but he played his next four holes (11 through to 14) in a disastrous six over par that included three consecutive bogies and a triple. Tiger's only birdie of the day came at 16 but he would end his round just as it began, with a bogie, before signing for a 80.

This was the first time in his career that Woods has failed to break 80 in any round of a US Open, this coming just weeks after he recorded his worst ever round as a professional (a third round 85) at Muirfield Village.

Matched at a low of 1.715/7 to make the cut Woods is now not surprisingly trading at 12.011/1 to be around at the weekend, with the 'No' option in the Woods To Make The Cut market being available at just 1.051/20.

He will commence his second round at Chambers Bay at 16:28 UK time.

It was also a poor day for world number one Rory McIlroy, the Northern Irishman shooting a two over par 72 in the favoured early conditions in Washington - the four-time major winner is now available to back at 30.029/1 in the US Open Winner market.

But it's Johnson who heads the market at 6.611/2 following his brilliant opening round of 65, shortly followed by the world number two Jordan Spieth, 7.06/1, who fired a two under par 68 in the much tougher afternoon conditions. Stenson, tied with Johnson at the top, is available to back at 8.07/1.
