USPGA Championship Contenders 2012 - Rory McIlroy

Rory McIlroy has turned into one of the stars of the world game over the past couple of years and he finally realised his potential back in June when he won the US Open in stunning style. It was his first Major win but most believed it will not be his last with plenty of years ahead of him, McIlroy is blessed with plenty of natural talent and he goes into the USPGA as the warm favourite to win. Mcilroy was simply too good for the field at the US open as he dominated the field which reminded many of the early wins of Tiger Woods, while it might be a stretch for him to emulate woods he certainly looks set to have a wonderful career.

Latest Rory McIlroy USPGA Championship 2012 Odds

Since winning the US Open Mcilroy has failed to find his best form, he was below his best at the Open where he struggled in the windy conditions before not featuring in the Irish open recently. That being said McIlroy often produces his best golf at the Major Championships and it would be no surprise to see him in contention in Atlanta at the USPGA. McIlroy has indicated that he will play more golf in the US in the future and the style of course over there clearly suits his game at the moment and that is reflected in his latest price with the bookmakers.

McIlroy went close at Whistling Starits last season when he came in third and that followed another third place finish also in the USPGA Championship back in 2009. The man from Northern Ireland clearly enjoys the way the USPGA set up a course and that means he goes into the 2011 tournament full of confidence and chances.
