Well, the little Irishman failed it!
Rory McIlroy ended up the Last round on Sunday 5 strokes and teed off in the PGA Tour Championship at Atlanta using a 5 stroke drawback to the FedEx Cup points leader Justin Thomas and 4 ahead of runner-up Xander Schauffele.
It was a performance from McIlroy who took quite a little flack .
He dropped significantly far down the leaderboard and did have a couple tournaments at which it seemed he was potentially in path to a victory but faltered.
We always seem to remember the negatives .
If you take a look at how many championships he competed in (19) and also the amount of top ten finishes he’d (14), it brings what was his very best season ever clearly into consideration.
He is easily the favorite as you might imagine and if we can not write off him, I am not going to move all-in on him either.
The trek was produced by fellow PGA Tour Championship competition Tommy Fleetwood and is currently sitting 10 to 1 for a success.
Right up there with them are fellow UK celebrity and back-to-back European Masters defending winner Matthew Fitzpatrick whose current betting odds to win are set at (+800).
Even the baby-faced Fitzpatrick is but has already made his mark on the European Union but over the PGA Tour.
He had been 20th in the Open Championship, 21st in The Experts, runner-up at the Arnold, and 12th in the US Open in 2019.
The Northwestern alum cannot be dismissed in your betting spread for this particular weekend.
Speaking of betting, BetOnline sportsbook has the odds this week.
Let’s get after it!
The route history is not there although the Dane isn’t in his best form as of late.
In the years, several of the winners have flown not at all swinging a club that was hot but so done regardless.
Like he is worn down, therefore it is not, he is coming off of a month break.
Off the time may very well have helped him recover from a minor injury or a mental block.
These are all”maybe’s”. I understand, yet this man at a playoff Fitzpatrick completing 17 below par to its 72 holes that are scheduled missing out of this tournament this past year played.
Lucas was top ten in 2017.
If it weren’t for his recent form, I would think his odds for a top twenty five finish would be longer or -115.
Let us take him 2 to 1 to kick things off.
Last year’s winning Ryder Cup team, Tommy Fleetwood’s hero and face is described in one word, surprising.
He comes through whenever he is disregarded and when the expectations are put onto his shoulders together with his locks, the Brit seems to disappoint.
Even though he’s the third-highest golfer to the gambling board supporting Fitzpatrick and Rory, he isn’t being given much of a opportunity by several specialists.
That’s okay. When you consider the talent-laden area of opponents A victory will be hard for any golfer here.
He is liked by me plus cash, however, for a ten.
If not 3 players in this tournament and as I mentioned, loves to surprise , He’s undoubtedly one of the top 5.
Although he has not been great of late, he has three top 20s adding a couple of top 10s to his own name at Crans-sur-Sierre because his introduction here in 2012.
We’d be discussing Tommy Fleetwood because the 2019 Open Championship winner if it were not for a Shane Lowrey.
What impressed me even more than that was his place tie at the St Jude Invitational the following week alongside fellow Brit Fitzpatrick.
I see Tommy showing his skills as well as his magnificent locks off and returning to his home continent in style.
Okay, here is a fantastic opportunity to come out ahead with one wager in all our stakes.
Hend is in the exact bottom of this betting odds list this week.
Therefore, why are we picking him?
For starters, he had been a runner up in 2017 and 2016. He took the greatest winners, Fitzpatrick and Alex Noren to a playoff both times.
Last year, eh, 45th if that brought his chances to where they are now, then I am cool with it.
His latest variant isn’t a bueno but has a win at the European Tour this past year at the Maybank Championship.
Scott’s long-hitting prowess probably will not help him this week but he definitely knows how to play this course so I don’t see anything wrong with projecting 12.50 down to create 100 dollars for only a top twenty.
Even the 46-year-old is coming from a couple of weeks of rest.
This guy has dominated this tournament in the recent past.
Not only is he the champ but has a runner up finish in 2015 along with a T7 in’16.
Fitz is also in form.
He finished 1 shot behind the winner a week at the Scandanavian Masters, 4th in St Jude, 20t in The Open and placed 12th in the US Open.
Think about the pressure of the hat trick getting into the young guy?
I am not buying it. The existence of the recently crowned FedEx Cup Champion Rory McIlroy will likely pull just enough of the attention off of him thus allowing him to completely focus on the job ahead.
Enough today we have already mentioned his name.
Give him some dough.
Last week was quite fun!
If you think about it, the cascading beginning strokes method worked out well.
Rahm and Webb Simpson dropped to the center of the pack but Mr minus 10 Justin Thomas did not run off with it, along with the top three arguably greatest golfers of 2019 completed in those places.
Rory McIlroy was the golfer that is most impressive. He began a few strokes behind and finishing a few before a guy who received considerably more positive press than him all year long in Brooks Koepka.
McIlroy will soon be in action today. Many are writing him off but I do not think he’d have entered this tournament when he didn’t have any intention of doing.
The field is thick this week with all the top players in the Tour getting the golden chance to compete in the summertime.
I don’t know about you but my Instagram was chocked full of pics and movies of these stunning Summer landscapes.
I would love to be in attendance to this one.
Maybe next year…
If you can tune in or locate a flow online after you receive your bets in. This is supposed to be an enjoyable one!
