McIlroy favourite to be top European point scorer


With Europe’s 12-man team now confirmed, Rory McIlroy has been made favourite to score the most points of Colin Montgomerie’s men.

The Northern Irishman is priced at 4/1 with Ladbrokes, followed by US Open champ Graham McDowell and top scorer at Valhalla Ian Poulter at 6/1. PGA Champion Martin Kaymer is 7/1 and world number three Lee Westwood is 8/1, despite question marks over his fitness.

The outsiders are Peter Hanson at 25/1 and Miguel Angel Jimenez at 33/1, while wildcard Edoardo Molinari could represent good value for money at 12/1 if playing in tandem with brother Francesco – a pairing that won the World Cup last year.

Europe are 8/13 to win at Celtic Manor, with America 13/8 and the tie priced at 10/1.
