PGA CHAMPIONSHIP Prediction

Rory McIlroy will win another major championship. It is not a question of if, really just when.

At this point, I refuse to miss out on it when he does finally break the hex. The number two golfer in the world and 4x major champion has played the last eight major championships (excluding the MC at the 23 Masters) in at -42; that is second to only Scottie Scheffler and puts him in atmosphere of his own. It is insane to be playing as well as he is in Majors and not win with top tens in seven of his last eight and top fives in four of those tournaments.

McIlroy has hoisted the Wannamaker trophy twice, the second and last time being in 2014 at Valhalla, the same place they will be playing this week. This course is spectacular but it also plays incredibly long. Elite driving and long irons will be needed to have success this week and very few people can hit the ball like McIlroy does. Add in the fact that these last two weeks the wedge tempo has looked great and the putts are starting to fall, I think he plays well this week.

Now add in the drama. How does he follow up wins in back-to-back starts? Filing for divorce from his wife Erica on Monday. This is out of left field for the fans, they kept their marriage largely private as is so no one really saw this coming. Surely, this could weigh on his mind this week but I think it has the potential for the opposite effect, this week and the rest of the season. Denied from the reentry to the PGA Tour board, files for divorce the day after win, I think it's time to put the blinders on and focus on his true love, the game of golf.

Did I mention all four of his major championship victories came while he was an unmarried man?
