WGC-Cadillac Championship Preview

2014 03 Rory

As attentions turn towards this week’s WGC-Cadillac Championship, we take a look at who to watch, as the players get ready to take on the revamped, Donald Trump-owned ‘Blue Monster’.


Going off at the shortest odds with the bookmakers, Rory McIlroy, above, will be hoping to bounce back from the disappointment of losing last week’s Honda Classic in a play-off.

A sloppy final round cost McIlroy his first PGA Tour win since September 2012 but, at 6/1, the Northern Irishman is the bookies’ pick to take Tiger Woods’ title and win his first World Golf Championship.

Woods himself is still to confirm his place in the field – that should come later today when he hosts his pre-tournament press conference – after back spasms meant he could only complete 13 holes of his final round at the Honda.

If the 14-time major champion – and winner of 18 World Golf Championships – fails to take part, or finishes outwith the top seven, he could surrender his world No.1 crown to Masters champion Adam Scott, who will take over at the top of the world rankings if he wins and Woods falters.
Scottish interest in the WGC-Cadillac Championship is provided by Stephen Gallacher, Scott Jamieson, and Paul Lawrie.

Scott, priced at 12/1 by the bookies, will be joined by 2012 champion, and winner of last year’s US Open, Justin Rose, in the first two rounds. The duo are firm friends and their ease in one another’s company could yield some low scores. Don’t be surprised if the person holding the WGC-Cadillac Championship trophy aloft on Sunday night is one of these two guys

Sergio Garcia is another player to keep an eye out for. The Spaniard finished strongly at last year’s WGC-Cadillac Championship, and will look to build on the consistent finish he had in the Honda Classic, where he played his final three rounds in seven-under-par. Can he improve on last year’s tie for third? You wouldn’t bet against it.

Scottish interest at Doral is provided by Dubai Desert Classic champion Stephen Gallacher.
