WGM’s tip for 7 August: Rory McIlroy

Written by Ben Blaschke

What a tournament this promises to be! The final major of the year sees the world’s golfing elite gathering at the famous Valhalla course looking to add this prestigious piece of silverware to the trophy cabinet.

There is no shortage of quality contenders but we’re going to go with the obvious choice – Rory McIlroy. How could we not? The world’s form golfer has regained the number one ranking on the back of consecutive wins at the Open Championship and last week’s Bridgestone Invitational and it’s hard to imagine him being too far from the lead heading into the final day’s play.

When people speak of greatness they usually start with Tiger Woods but it is remiss of people to overlook just how good McIlroy is and can be when he is at his best. He actually sits alongside Woods and Jack Nicklaus as the only three players to have won three majors by the age of 25 so watch him make a play for number four this week.
