A year after capturing his first career major, Dustin Johnson is the favorite to repeat at the 2017 US Open.

Even if you want to ignore his absurd form since last year’s triumph at Oakmont–five wins and 13 Top-10’s in 19 starts–or even if you want to ignore the fact he’s the No. 1 golfer in the world, there’s no denying that this year’s track–Erin Hills in Erin, Wisconsin–fits DJ to a tee. The course sets up to be one of the longest majors ever, while Johnson ranks first on Tour in both driving distance and strokes gained off the tee.

Of course, with the amount of elite talent that has emerged in 2017, it won’t be easy for the 32-year-old to become the first player since Curtis Strange (1988 and ’89) to win back-to-back US Open tournaments.

Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Jason Day are threats as always, but it’s no longer as simple as saying there’s a Big 3 or Big 4. Tour rookie Jon Rahm, who has exploded onto the scene with a win, three Top-3’s and seven Top-10’s, has a lot of similarities to Johnson. Hideki Matsuyama and Justin Thomas both have multiple wins this year. Rickie Fowler, after a disappointing 2016, seems to always be around the leaderboard on weekends. Then, of course, there’s Sergio Garcia, who is fresh off his first major victory at Augusta and as confident as ever.

Johnson may be the clear favorite, but it’s a long list of contenders. Here’s a complete look at the odds list, per OddsShark:
