Favourite Discussion

Rory McIlroy 6/1

Rory McIlroy. Clear favourite at 6/1.

There may no discussion this week! Rory McIlroy is 6/1 and worth a punt in the win only market.  He’ll have two weeks more work done on that new left below right putting stroke that helped score him a T3 at Doral (T12 in putting) and that combined with his length and GIR stats, make him an irresistible favourite.  I never back guys less than 10/1 pre tournament but I’m tempted to with Rory.  T11 on his debut last year.

Four Best Bets At the 2016 Arnold Palmer Invitational

Justin Rose 16/1

Justin Rose 16/1. My NAP of the week.

My big tip of the week.  Justin battled virus last time out at the WGC Cadillac and recovered to finish with a 67 posting some very impressive driving and iron stats.  T16 before that at Riviera and T6 at Pebble,  Rose feels his game is now finally where it should be.  Didn’t play here last year and missed the cut in 2014 but was solo second to Tiger Woods in 2013 and T3 in 2011.  With family healthy again and happy at home, this could be Justin’s week.

Henrik Stenson 12/1

Henrik12/1. An improvement on the greens is all that's needed.

Endured another tough week at The Valspar but posted a T11 to put behind him a T28 in Doral.  Henrik got back to pounding the greens in regulation with regularity at Innisbrook and that is perennially one of the keys at Bay Hill.  Solo second to Matt Every last year is Henrik’s best of three consecutive top-10’s here.

Jason Kokrak  55/1

Big Jason Kokrak is a horse for the course.

Kokrak is out at 55/1 with the bookies following missed cuts at the Honda and Valspar last week but don’t let that dissuade you too much.  He came close to his first Tour win at Riviera (T2) and is a horse for the course at Bay Hill with a T6 and solo 4th on his last two starts here.  Worth an each way look.

Marc Leishman 50/1

Marc Leishman. Now with Cally.

Marc will be on my betting slip as an outsider for the 2016 Majors but I fancy him for a regular season PGA Tour win soon.  A good T5 at Riviera was followed with a T28 at Doral and though the Aussie has a poor recent record at Bay Hill, he also knows from a T3 in 2011 that he can compete on this course. New Cally staffer this year.
