Rory McIlroy Daily Fantasy News, Rankings, Projections

Rory Week

With Dustin Johnson going out of this event, I think most of that ownership gets tacked on to Rahm and even moreso to Justin Thomas. This forces a scenario where Rory likely ends up the lowest-owned in the top tier. At a new course for all, as least for a PGA Tour event, I like taking the guy with massive upside that also has some pretty good form coming in. Back to back top 10s and a 12th before that, on top of having some of the best stats for the course when it comes to OTT, BOB and DK scoring. All things we want for a 4-day no-cut event. Lastly, many have compared it to another Tom Fazio designed course, in Quail Hollow. Rory has 2 wins there and also has a solid resume across the board at courses with altitude and high heat, much like this one.

Rory McIlroy welcomes new addition to his family

Former world number one Rory McIlroy took to Instagram on Thursday morning to announce that his wife Erica gave birth to their first child on Monday. McIlroy made it public a few weeks ago that being there for the birth of his first child was a priority and that he would leave any event he was playing in no matter where he stood in the tournament. For now, McIlroy is on track to play this week and will start 3 shots behind FedEx leader Dustin Johnson. Baby swag narrative players will look to give Rory a bump this week if indeed he plays this week for the first time as a new dad.

Winning Potential At Lower Ownership

We haven’t seen the “crisp” McIlroy for an entire week since the golf restart, but it feels like that time is coming. McIlroy has a ridiculously strong history in WGC events, and that includes a fourth place finish at TPC Southwind last year. He still ranks a respectable 34th on Tour in ball striking despite his underwhelming stretch, and stars and scrubs lineups make more sense here with the no cut format. He still gains strokes with the best of them off the tee, which should have him in good position to go flag hunting on this course. I’ll priortize starting with Rory where I can afford to do so, and he’s my pick to win this week. It’s time for him to get back there.

Rory McIlroy testing new drivers ahead of the restart

According to PGA Tour equipment insider, Jonathan Wall, Rory Mcllroy spent some time on Wednesday testing a new driver. McIlroy currently has a TaylorMade SIM 10.5 driver in his bag but was spotted testing a 9.0 SIM Max driver ahead of round one. Unless he wants to play an overly aggressive strategy this week, Mcllroy will not hit many drivers, and this news of testing a new club out should be considered not an overly big issue. With today's ability to tweak clubs and shafts via modern technology players have a much easier time pulling the trigger on a potential change.

Elite Form & the Heavy Betting Favorite

There are quite a few reasons to like McIlroy this week. We’ll start with the obvious — he has six straight top five finishes worldwide and hasn’t finished outside of the top 30 in his last 13 events. He’s the clear betting favorite this week at 5-to-1, yet he isn’t that much more expensive than the other golfers in the field. Last week, Tommy Fleetwood was the favorites at 11-to-1 with Brooks Koepka and Rickie Fowler trailing him in the betting market. This week, the next closest in the market is Fleetwood, who is listed at 14-to-1. Essentially, we are getting a much bigger favorite (Rory) at a similar price point. He’s ranked first in this field in birdie or better percentage, strokes gained off the tee, and bogey avoidance. He clearly loves Bay Hill, posting a fourth, a win, and a sixth here over the last three years. With this being a smaller field than usual, we can afford to take chances with cheaper golfers, which makes it easier to afford the studs. With the 6-of-6 percentage likely to be high, we need to chase win equity and McIlroy offers more of that than any golfer in the field.

Rory McIlroy rides a hot putter to first round lead

After a less than satisfying finish at Rivera, Rory McIlroy decided to make a putter switch ahead of this week's WGC Mexico Championship. McIlroy put his old putter back in the bag this week, and for now, it looks like he made the right choice. McIlroy gained almost 4 shots putting in round 1 and will head into Friday's round with a two-shot lead. One of the bigger disappointments of day one was the performance of the defending champion Dustin Johnson. His round one showdown score of 12.5 was by far his lowest output on this course. Prior to yesterday's poor performance, Johnson had averaged almost 49 showdown points per round over his last 12 starts at this course. Looking to bounce back from what looks to be an outlier performance Johnson could come in much lower in ownership than that of McIlroy in the round two slate.

Xander Schauffele starts off title defense with a strong effort

Defending a title on the PGA Tour is always a hard task. With nine birdies en route to an open round of 66 Xander Schauffele is in a good position to perhaps defend his title this week. For those playing the showdown slates, Schauffele looks to be a priority spend as he as absolutely dominated this course over his last five rounds. Including yesterday's nine birdies, Schauffele has 31 birdies over his last five rounds at Sheshan International Golf Club. Joining Schauffele as an elite top-end spend for the round two showdown slate is Rory McIlroy. The current FedEx Cup champion made 8 birdies during round one redeeming himself from a very poor showing at last year's event. When building showdown lineups it's easy to fit one or both of these players in due to the amount of value the format provides.

Rory McIlroy set to make his 2020 PGA Tour debut

The current PGA Tour player of the year will make his 2020 debut this week at The ZoZo Championship. Coming off a year in which he finished inside the top ten 14 times ( 19 starts), including 3 wins it's very easy to see why McIlroy should be considered a great top-end spend for the week. While some might stray away from McIlroy on this less than driver course, there is very little reason to think that he has the talent to win each and every week he plays. From a roster construction standpoint, there is more than enough value to squeeze McIlroy into builds. From a motivational standpoint, there is nothing more McIlroy would like to do than start off the season with a win. Fresh off winning the player of the year in what could have easily been Brooks Koepka's year to win, McIlroy is a great spot to quiet down any possible critics.

Rory McIlroy looks to build on an excellent course history

If it were not for the new FedEx Cup format Rory Mcllroy would most likely enter the week as the golfer most picked to win at East Lake. With a win and two top ten or better starts in his last four appearances at East Lake, Mcllroy has one of the best course histories of anyone in this field. Starting five shots behind McIlroy will be one of the more popular chasers of Justin Thomas this week. Having gained an average of almost six shots tee to green in his last four starts at The Tour Championship McIlroy certainly has the game to make up ground on the field this week.

Firepower to Make up Ground Quickly

I originally had Justin Thomas listed as a core play, but I’m doing a 180 on that take. He’s still viable in MME and still a decent option on FanDuel given the soft pricing. However, with the big discount that we get with McIlroy, I’m adding him as a core play for the week. He’s number one in this field in strokes gained off the tee, bogey avoidance, and birdie or better percentage. He’s a good bermuda putter and he has a tremendous record at East Lake including a win back in 2016. He has the firepower to make up strokes quickly, especially over the course of four rounds. The best part is that using Rory over JT will make the rest of your lineup look so much better.
