Provided that he avoids any pre-tournament accident, Dustin Johnson is the favorite to win the 2017 Open Championship, according to Vegas Insider.

DJ, who had to miss the Masters after falling down some stairs and suffering a back injury, is currently a 12/1 favorite to capture his second major title. The 33-year-old has also been the favorite to win the season’s first two majors, but he has had a rough go of it in the year’s biggest events, withdrawing from the Masters and missing the cut at the U.S. Open.

Making his debut near the top of the odds chart at a major is Jon Rahm, the 22-year-old Spaniard who has two professional wins on his resume (one on the European Tour and one on the PGA Tour). Apparently, Vegas was not dissuaded from his T59 finish last year at the Open, and is placing the former top amateur in the second slot on the board at 14/1. Also joining Rahm at 14/1 odds are Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler.
