Superstar pair coming back to form

Coral traders make Rory McIlroy the 8/1 favourite for The Masters, which begins in just over two weeks at Augusta.

The Northern Irishman won his first event since 2016 yesterday, The Arnold Palmer International, with a stunning eight-under-par final round.

“It was vintage McIlroy over the weekend and our punters have clearly been very impressed as he’s now our clear favourite for the much anticipated Masters in just over two weeks,” said Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead.

Tiger Woods is now the firms’ second favourite, at 9/1, after another strong showing at Bay Hill.

“We’ve taken a lot of bets over the last week or so on Tiger. He was 33/1 before his second at the Valspar Championship.

And after tying for 5th at Bay Hill he’s gone from 14/1 to 9/1 second favourite. He’d be a hugely popular winner for golf fans and punters alike, but not for bookmakers,” concluded Aitkenhead.
