The PGA Tour returns to Merion Golf Club for the first time in 22 years, when the 1981 U.S. Open was held in Ardmore. The course hasnít evolved much in the past 32 years, and at 6,996 yards, it will be one of the shortest major courses in recent years, and the shortest U.S. Open course since 2004.

Tiger Woods (4/1): Woods might lose a little bit of his edge on the shorter track, but heís returned to elite status this year because his putter has been on fire. Heís in the Tourís top five in putting (fifth, at .833 strokes gained) for the first time since 2009. Despite a hiccup at The Memorial, heís rightfully the heavy favorite this week, even with his last major coming in 2008.

Sergio Garcia (50/1): Heíll be under a little bit more pressure after rekindling an ugly rivalry with Tiger Woods, but Garcia has the kind of precision to shine on Merion. Aside from his withdrawal from the Arnold Palmer Invitational, heís finished no worse than T19 in his 10 stroke-play starts worldwide this year.

Luke Donald (40/1): Itís been a relatively quiet year for the former World No. 1, but Donaldís skillset fits well on Merionís short track. He hasnít won this year, but heís been top-5 twice in his past five starts stateside and has only one finish outside the top-25 in his seven starts in the U.S.

Ryan Moore (100/1): Moore is an interesting longshot. His lack of length off the tee wonít hurt him this week, and while heís missed two cuts since the beginning of May, heís also posted a T6 at Wells Fargo and a T13 at the Memorial.

Phil Mickelson (20/1): Itís been a relatively wild year for Lefty, who has missed two cuts in the past three months, but also posted three top-5's. He heated up on the weekend at last weekís St. Jude Classic, going 65-67 to move into a runner-up tie.
