McIlroy cut even further to top Brit list

| 04.08.2014

Rory McIlroy is into 4-7 to be the BBC Sports Personality of the Year following his latest victory in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. The Northern Irishman is back to number one in the world rankings and is a top price of 5-1 with Coral to win his second Major of the year in the US PGA Championship later in the week.

“McIlroy is right at the top of his game at the moment and after the year he has had so far, he looks a very worthy odds-on favourite to win the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award,” said Coral’s John Hill.

“Rory looks to be playing golf which is far superior to anybody else in the world so he will start on Thursday as a clear favourite to win his second Major tournament of the year at Valhalla,” added Hill.
