Winner Alright: Last week Rory McIlroy to success at 5/1

Robert Karlsson 24/1

drago[5] Robert Karlsson is the defending champion this week and apart from a top five at the USPGA Championship and a couple of decent showing in May and June has had a pretty torrid year on the PGA Tour. If it wasn’t for Lee Westwood’s third round 62 in Sun City last weekend though Karlsson would be celebrating a win. Three super consistent 69’s and a 68 to finish saw him easily take second and more importantly get a huge shot in the arm ahead of this week. Karlsson: I must break you

 

Lee Westwood 8/1

lee westwood upgrade_thumb[4] If you missed Lee last Saturday, you missed one of the greatest exhibitions of golf ever. The Worksop man’s 62 was simply awesome and if he can bring that form to the showdown this week he could be hard to match. The winner by six shots in 2009 and just one shot off Karlsson last season when he tied third.

 

Rory McIlroy 7/1

Copy of rory mcilroy funny We brought home Rors last week albeit at 5/1 but a win is a win. Stats watchers like me will never cease to be amazed at how McIlroy gets it done. In Hong Kong, Gregory Havret who was second, ranked second in putts per green in regulation; Rory was 15th. The week that Rory putts as well as he hits his irons, he will win by 10 shots. One word of warning however though Rors has top fived here in the last two years, he is bound to be exhausted and his media commitments having won last week are going to be punishing.

 

Paul Casey 24/1

westwood irate[6] I was very impressed with Casey at the Chevron World Challenge last week where he finished third after carding a first round 79. After a torrid season on and off the course Casey seems to have gotten his life and his golf game back on track lately. A top 10 at the Frys.com Open in early October, fourth at the WGC HSBC in Shanghai in early November and third last weekend. Tied for sixth last year and one to watch.

Best Of The Rest

Ian Poulter 32/1 lost a playoff here to Robert Karlsson last year and seems to have found a bit of form after tying fourth in Hong Kong last week. Elsewhere I think the two Spaniards Alvaro Quiros 42/1 and Sergio Garcia 16/1 will have big weeks. Quiros coupled some mammoth tee shots with great greens in reg stats last week and he’s only one good putting week away from a win. And as for Sergio, he is only coming off two wins on the spin. Wouldn’t a three-peat be nice?
