So close at Augusta, but can McIlory hold his nerve at Maryland? 20 times the money for Rory to win US Open.

Press release   •   Jun 14, 2011 09:00 BST

Luke Donald and Lee Westwood lead the world rankings and are also favourites to top the standings at the Congressional Country Club come Sunday evening. Both are available at 12.00 with BetClic, and the Brits will be eyeing the US Open title to add to their impressive seasons. But fellow Brit Rory McIlroy is one of the most interesting challengers paying 20 times the money at BetClic.

The young star from Northern Ireland is tipped for the top and these odds to win such a title at his age clearly reflect this.  McIlroy has shown glimpses of his quality so far in his career, never more so than at the 2011 US Masters where he showed in the first three days that he had what it took to top the field. However, his collapse on the final day showed his lack of experience. McIlroy will be hoping he learnt from his final round collapse at Augusta and can win his first major.

Luke Donald has shot up the world rankings in previous months and after victory at the BMW Championship in Wentworth he saw himself jump to number one replacing Westwood and will be looking to win the US Open to cement his position and prove he merits his position. While Lee Westwood will be looking to prove his quality and regain his position at the top.

With Tiger Woods out of the field the real American challenge to the Brits is Phil Mickleson. ‘Lefty’ has come in just behind the Donald and Westwood with online bookmakers BetClic at 15.00 and will be eager to add the US Open to his incredible golfing CV having agonisingly finished runner-up on five occasions.
