Rory McIlroy Favored Over Tiger Woods At Tour Championship

Rory McIlroy has won the past two PGA Tour playoff events, and three of his past four starts. If he can make it three straight in the final postseason event, The Tour Championship, the young phenom from Northern Ireland will take home an eight-figure bonus. At +450, Rory is a slight favorite to do just that, with Tiger Woods expected to be the next best bet at +500.

Tiger has won this event twice and can also take home the $10 million bonus with a win this weekend. Three others in the field are also guaranteed the bonus with a win, if someone in the rest of the 30-golfer field wins, the big bonus will come down to tiebreakers based on where Rory and others place on the final leaderboard.
