 Rory's Masters Record

McIlory now has four consecutive top-10 performances at The Masters including a best of solo fourth in 2015 when he carded a final round 66 alongside non other than Tiger Woods.  All positive there.

Rory's Masters Stats

It's a well known fact that Masters winners produce great Greens In Regulation stats then need to be solid (if unspectacular) on the greens.  Rory hit 44 greens in the right number in 2017 and 46 before that in 2016; that doesn't get it done for him.  However in 2014 and 2015 Rors hit 52 and 53 greens respectively so he does know the formula.  But is he playing well enough at the moment?

Rory's 2018 PGA Tour Overall Stats

With a total of 1.396 Strokes Gained Total so far over 15 measured PGA Tour rounds, this is maybe a "satisfactory" for Rory........Until you see his winning stats at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

1. Proximity to the hole Rd 4: 24 feet. Including 12 approaches to 21 feet or better. Rank 1 in field.
2. Strokes gained putting: Over 2.5 strokes against the field. Rank 1.
3. Driving distance: 317 yards. Averaged 336 yards in Round 4. Rank 1
Since shotlink began collecting SGP data in 2004 Rory McIlroy is the only player to ever top the field in strokes gained putting, driving distance, proximity to the hole & scrambling at an event.

So is Rory worth a bet at 11/1? Absolutely!!
