With the PGA Championship in the books and Phil Mickelson heading home with the Wanamaker Trophy, attention quickly shifts to the upcoming U.S. Open.

The South Course at Torrey Pines will host the USGA's premier event in just three short weeks, laying claim to major status for the first time since Tiger Woods beat Rocco Mediate in a memorable playoff in 2008. Only three regular PGA Tour stops separate the majors, meaning most big names will only play once or twice before teeing it up in Southern California.

Bryson DeChambeau will be back to defend the title he won last fall at Winged Foot, but he's not the current betting favorite. That distinction belongs to Jon Rahm, who oddsmakers at PointsBet Sportsbook list at +1100 as he looks to win his first major championship. Rahm has finished inside the top 10 at both the Masters and PGA this year and he boasts a stellar record at Torrey in the annual Farmers Insurance Open: four finishes of T-7 or better in five appearances, including his first career Tour win in 2017 and a runner-up finish last year.

Rahm is followed closely by Brooks Koepka, who likely won't be listed at +5000 for another major anytime soon. Koepka nearly won his fifth major on an injured knee at Kiawah, settling for a T-2 finish behind Mickelson, but he's now slotted at +1200 for Torrey. Two more multiple major champions, Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy, are next on the list at +1600.

DeChambeau is listed at +1700 as he looks to go back-to-back, while Patrick Reed, who won the Farmers earlier this year at Torrey, is listed at +3000. And ample attention will be thrown Mickelson's way, as he looks to round out the final leg of the career Grand Slam in his hometown. Mickelson was +12500 to win the U.S. Open last week, but after taking the PGA title as a +20000 longshot he's now down to +5000 to win his second straight major.

Here's a look at some of the other notable prices in the U.S. Open futures market, with the tournament teeing off June 17:
