Rory McIlroy latest odds

July 22, 2014

Rory McIlroy is back where he belongs, on top of the golfing world following his Open Championship triumph at Royal Liverpool yesterday.  The 25 year old Northern Irishman is now just missing the Masters title to complete the illustrious Career Grand Slam and Paddy Power make him an Even money shot to do it before he is 30.

But it's not just about success on the course for Rory. Britain has had a shocking year of sport so far with England crashing out of the World Cup, Murray failing at Wimbledon and the Tour de France providing nothing but British misery so far.  It's no surprise then that the bookmaker has slashed his odds to get his mitts on the Sports Personality of the Year award from 16/1 before the Open Championship to just 8/11 today.

Off the course it hasn't been so calm and calculated for young Rory, a break-up with fiancée and tennis ace Caroline Wozniacki might have derailed others golfer's seasons.  However the Hollywood man has put those issues behind him and now has a major title since the split along with the BMW Championship.  Can Wozniacki bounce back and do the same? Paddy Power make it 10/1 that Caroline will win a grand slam by the end of 2015 and put the grief behind her.

Elsewhere the bookmaker has Tiger at odds of 7/2 to not make the Ryder Cup team, with Tom Watson expressing that Tiger cannot be assured of a place come September unless he ups his game. 

A Paddy Power spokesperson said; "Break-ups are usually tough, but Rory seems to be loving life, playing hard and beating the field - let's hope Caroline can follow suit."
