Well, the scrappy little Irishman did it!
Rory McIlroy teed off Thursday in the PGA Tour Championship at Atlanta using a 5 stroke drawback to the present FedEx Cup points leader Justin Thomas and finished up the Last round 5 strokes and 4 ahead of Xander Schauffele.
It was a breathtaking performance from McIlroy who took quite a bit of flack from several members of this media throughout the season for seemingly not being the perfect athlete.
He dropped far down the leaderboard and did have a few tournaments in which it appeared that he was potentially in route to a success but faltered.
We always appear to recall the negatives however.
Should you look at how many championships he participates in (19) and the quantity of top ten finishes he’d (14), it brings what was his best season ever into consideration.
He’s easily the favorite as you might imagine and if we can not write off him, I am not going to go all-in on him .
Fellow PGA Tour Championship competitor Tommy Fleetwood left the trek as well and is presently sitting 10 to 1 to get a success.
Right up there with them are fellow UK star and back-to-back European Masters defending winner Matthew Fitzpatrick whose present betting odds to win are set at (+800).
Even the baby-faced Fitzpatrick is just 24-years-old but has already made his mark not only on the Union but also to the PGA Tour also.
He was 12th in the United States Open in 2019, 21st in The Masters, 20th in the Open Championship, and runner-up at the Arnold.
The Northwestern alum cannot be dismissed in your spread for this particular weekend.
BetOnline sportsbook gets the odds this week.
Let’s get after it!
The route history is not there although the Dane isn’t in his very best form as of late.
A number of the winners have flown not at all swinging a club that was hot but done regardless.
Therefore it is not like he is worn down, he is coming off of almost a month break.
The time off might have helped him recover from a block or a slight injury.
These are all”maybe’s”. This man lost out of this tournament last year at a playoff Fitzpatrick completing 17 under par for the 72 holes that are scheduled , although I understand.
Lucas was also ten in 2017.
I’d think his chances for a top twenty finish would be more or -115 if it were not for his recent form.
Let us take him 2 1 to kick off things.
The hero and face Tommy Fleetwood, of last year’s winning Ryder Cup team is described in 1 word, surprising.
He comes through, he is ignored and once the expectations are placed on his shoulders beside his golden locks, the Brit seems to disappoint.
Even though he’s the golfer to the board supporting Fitzpatrick and Rory, he isn’t being given much of a opportunity by several experts.
That is okay. When you consider the field of competitors, A success will be hard here.
I like him at plus cash, though, to get a ten.
If not players in this tournament and as I mentioned, loves to surprise us, He’s definitely among the top 5.
He still does have three leading 20s including a couple top 10s to his own name at Crans-sur-Sierre because his debut here in 2012, Though he hasn’t been great as of late.
We would be talking Tommy Fleetwood since the 2019 Open Championship winner, if it were not for a certain Shane Lowrey.
What impressed me even more than that was that his place tie alongside Brit Fitzpatrick the week in the St Jude Invitational.
I see Tommy displaying his gorgeous locks in addition to his skills and coming to his house continent in style this week.
Okay, here is a good opportunity to come out ahead with just 1 wager in all our bets.
Hend is at the very base of this odds list this week.
So, why are we picking him?
He was a runner up in 2017 and 2016. He took the greatest winners, Fitzpatrick and Alex Noren both times.
Last year, eh, 45th but attracted his odds to where they are then I am cool with it.
His recent variant is no bueno however includes a win in the Tour this past season.
Scott’s long-hitting art probably won’t help him this week but he definitely knows how to play this course so I do not see anything wrong with projecting 12.50 to make 100 bucks for only a top twenty.
Even the 46-year-old is coming off of a few weeks of rest too.
This guy has dominated this tournament in the recent past.
Is he the most popular defending champ however comes with a runner up finish in 2015 along with a T7 in’16.
Fitz is in outstanding shape also.
He finished 1 shot behind the winner last week at the Scandanavian Masters, 4th in St Jude, 20t at The Open and placed 12th in the US Open.
What about the pressure of the hat trick getting to the guy?
I’m not buying it. The presence of this recently crowned FedEx Cup Champion Rory McIlroy will likely pull only enough of their attention from him thus enabling him to completely focus on the task ahead.
Today that was we have mentioned his name.
Give him some dough.
Last week was fun!
In the event that you think about it, the cascading starting strokes method worked out.
Rahm and Webb Simpson dropped to the middle of the pack but Mr minus 10 Justin Thomas didn’t run away with it, and the best three arguably best golfers of 2019 finished in these places.
Rory McIlroy was one of the most impressive golfer. He began a few strokes finishing a few ahead of a guy who obtained a great deal more positive press all year long in Brooks Koepka.
McIlroy will be in action this week. Many are writing off him but I don’t think he would have entered this tournament when he did not have any intention of performing.
The area is thick this week using the players on the European Tour obtaining the golden chance to compete in Switzerland at the Summer.
I really don’t know about you but my Instagram has been chocked full of pics and movies of these magnificent Summer landscapes.
I would like to be in attendance for this one.
Perhaps next year…
Tune in if you can once you receive in your stakes or find a stream online. This ought to be an enjoyable one!
Well, the scrappy little Irishman did it!
