Justin Rose sees no reason why he can't mount a successful defence of his US Open triumph at Pinehurst this week.

The 33-year-old edged out Phil Mickelson at Merion 12 months ago and will play alongside the five-time Major winner when the action gets underway on Thursday.

Rose is 26.00 to win the US Open outright and 9.00 to be the top European at the tournament, while Mickelson is available at 17.00 to seal his first triumph at the second Major of the year.

The only men to have won the US Open in successive years are Curtis Strange, Ben Hogan and Willie Anderson, but Rose is confident he can become the fourth name on that elite list.

He said: "The record books show that the US Open is the hardest Major to defend and I think that's because the venues can be so different from year to year.

"But I don't feel I have to rely on the course to suit me - my game is good enough to give me chances to win anywhere."

The US Open has been a happy hunting ground for European players of late, with Graeme McDowell and Rory McIlroy having triumphed at Pebble Beach and Congressional in 2010 and 2011 respectively.

McIlroy won last month's BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth while, earlier in the year, McDowell reached the quarter-finals of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship and finished in the top ten of the WGC-Cadillac Championship. McIlroy is 11.00 to win the US Open outright, while McDowell can be backed at 46.00.

The two Northern Irishmen will play together at Pinehurst, alongside Webb Simpson, on the first two days of this year's tournament.
