The Economist’s Eagle predictor rates betting favorite Rory McIlroy as just the third-most-likely player to win The Open

Published

on

Rory McIlroy is the betting favorite at this week’s Open Championship, but according to the Economist’s Eagle statistical model, the Ulsterman is the third most likely winner of the event – possessing a 5.6% win probability.

The Economist’s Eagle model creates up-to-the-minute calculations for every player: their probability of each score outcome on every hole, predicted final score to par, and chances of winning the tournament or finishing among the top five, ten or 20.

The two men which Eagle sees as possessing a greater chance of winning the 148th Open Championship are Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson, who hold a 6.3 percent and 7.4 percent likelihood according to the model.

The results may surprise you, but according to The Economist’s Dan Rosencheck, the venue this week hurts McIlroy’s chances of winning his second Open Championship.

“The 7,344-yard layout at Royal Portrush does not particularly reward Mr McIlroy’s strengths. His skills are best suited for ultra-long courses with wide fairways and forgiving greens, like Erin Hills at the 2017 US Open (which played at some 7,840 yards during the first two rounds). In contrast, links courses often reward precision over power.”

Mcilroy is just one of three players with a pre-tournament win probability of over 5%, which Rosencheck stresses makes him quite clearly one of the world’s absolute best. But The Economist author warns that while his win probability is relatively high, it also represents that “about 17 times out of 18, Mr McIlroy’s fervent supporters will go home disappointed.”

Golf coach Pete Cowen labels Matt Wallace a “complete idiot” and calls for the golfer to be banned

Published

on

Legendary golf coach Pete Cowen has labelled Matt Wallace a “complete idiot” and called for the 29-year-old to be banned for his treatment of his caddie at the BMW International last month.

Cowen, who works with the likes of Brooks Koepka, Henrik Stenson and Gary Woodland, was speaking to The Times, where he claimed

“He is a complete idiot and the European Tour has to do something about it. A bollocking is no good, a fine is no good. He needs a ban. It’s a form of cheating because you’re putting your opponent off.

“The best thing would have been if his caddie had dropped his bag — I’d have chucked it in the bloody lake — but that wouldn’t do Dave McNeilly any good.”

Wallace was seen angrily remonstrating with his caddie, Dave McNeilly, on the 18th hole of the BMW International in June, and the English golfer also came under fire for a putter slam at the British Masters back in May.

Hitting back at Cowen’s claim that Wallace should be banned was the golfer’s agent, Chubby Chandler, who stated to James Corrigan of The Telegraph 

“He’s a good kid who hasn’t smashed up markers or abused officials unlike some other players and to say he should be banned is utterly ridiculous. It’s funny, I remember a young player who I was on Tour with in the 70s who was renowned for his tantrums and snapping clubs. His name was Pete Cowen.”

Matt Wallace tees off alongside Tiger Woods and Patrick Reed at this week’s Open Championship on Thursday.
