The Outlook

I’ll certainly have some exposure to Rory McIlroy given the $400 discount you get on him compared to Dustin Johnson on DraftKings.

McIlroy has played well this year, ranking 10th in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green, and he has historically dominated at majors: He’s made 31-of-39 cuts, and at the PGA Championship he owns two wins and five top 10s, missing the cut just once since 2009.
