Rory McIlroy

McIlroy got some ideal preparation at the Texas Open

Odds: [10.5]  Last five Masters: 40/15/mc/20/- Just when it seemed like McIlroy's Masters bid had gone off the rails, a timely late scheduling change has revived confidence. While his 2013 form has been massive disappointing after last year's peerless standard, Rory looked pretty close to his best at the Texas Open, finishing second and giving the leader a run for his money down the back-nine. Second place is often regarded as the ideal warm-up for a major and we know he has the tools to conquer Augusta. McIlroy's first 54 holes here in 2011 was one of the finest ever seen and, whether this year or not, he will wear the Green Jacket.
