No longer stuck in isolation, Jon Rahm has a full week to prepare for the U.S. Open - and he'll do so as the betting favorite.

Rahm was already topping the boards before his dramatic performance at the Memorial Tournament two weeks ago, when he built a six-shot lead through 54 holes only to withdraw after testing positive for COVID-19. The Spaniard appeared headed for a 10-day period of isolation, one that would have extended through Tuesday of this week, but he tweeted over the weekend that he was cleared to travel after multiple negative tests.

His odds at PointsBet Sportsbook have remained unchanged since the drama unfolded at Muirfield Village, as Rahm is still a +1000 favorite to win his first major title at Torrey Pines. Next on the list are a pair of U.S. Open winners in defending champ Bryson DeChambeau and 2016 victor Dustin Johnson, each at +1400. Brooks Koepka, entering off a missed cut at Congaree but reiterating that he saves his focus only for the majors, is next on the board alongside 2015 winner Jordan Spieth.

Others lurking further down the list include San Diego native Xander Schauffele (+1800), who has never finished worse than T-6 in any of his four U.S. Open appearances, while Phil Mickelson's odds (+6000) have been slashed from the price he had while winning the PGA at Kiawah.

Here's a look at the updated odds heading into tournament week, as players begin their prep for one of the most difficult tests of the year along the scenic Pacific coast:
