It wasn’t all plain sailing this time around for Rory McIlroy as he saw his overnight lead vanish after the first few holes in the PGA Championship at Valhalla.
McIlroy found himself 2 over par on the front nine, and strong starts from Mickelson, Fowler and Henrik Stenson saw him 2 behind the leaders at the turn.
But as a true champion McIlroy was to show that he wasn’t out of the tournament yet and with a tremendous second shot to eight feet on the par 5 10th which he holed for eagle, he suddenly was right back in the tournament.
As the other players were running out of steam and holes up ahead, he would go on to birdie the 13th and the 17th and claim a one-shot victory in what was pretty much darkness at the 18th green apart from the lights of the clubhouse which lit up a small part of it.
It’s been quite a few weeks for McIlroy and he has become the third youngest player after Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus to win four majors, but by the way this young man is going, he will be looking to break all records set by these great players and who’s to say anything can stop him at the moment.
If you followed my bets from earlier last week then well done on your winnings, and don’t spend all of the money at once!

Well it’s been an interesting few days in the golfing world. We’ve seen Rory McIlroy win again and go back to world number one, we’ve seen Tiger Woods injure himself again (getting boring now) and we’ve seen Dustin Johnson supposedly get banned from golf for 6 months for testing positive to cocaine. Just a normal week on the PGA Tour really!
Right, back to the important stuff…betting.
I’ve had a pretty good few weeks on the betting front, so you would be a fool not to at least take a look at these bets, I normally go ‘each way’ on these as picking an outright winner isn’t easy.
So here they are…
Rickie Fowler – 25/1
Brandt Snedeker – 66/1
Rory McIlroy – 6/1
Gary Woodland – 125/1
