The latest World Golf Championship starts in Mexico later Thursday, and we at Lap of The Odds HQ expect a lot of the favoured players to go well. (Johnson, Garcia to Enjoy Mexican Fiesta)
However, one star we are wary of backing at this point is Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy. He is just coming back from a rib injury and is unlikely to be Mr. Popular in the land south of the Rio Grande following his association with new U.S. President Donald Trump.
On the flip side, Rickie Fowler is bang in form having just won the Honda Classic in south Florida in style.
This suggests punters should take advantage of the Paddy Power tournament match bet, with McIlroy quoted at 4/7 and Fowler at 5/4.
