Scottish Open: Tommy Fleetwood and Rory McIlroy backed by bet365 customers

Tommy Fleetwood and Rory McIlroy are the most popular outright selections by bet365 customers ahead of the 2024 Genesis Scottish Open.

It's the final warm-up act before the race for the Claret Jug at Royal Troon Golf Club next weekend and McIlroy will be eager to recreate his heroics at The Renaissance Club in 2023 as he bids to banish the anguish of his U.S. Open shortcoming last month.

Six of the world's top 10 feature in a stellar lineup in North Berwick and Fleetwood is the most popular bet with bet365 customers, with 10.3% of slips on the Outright Winner market backing the Englishman to prevail.

bet365’s Steve Freeth said: “Defending champion McIlroy returns after a frustrating finish in the U.S. Open last month, but he’s been backed despite the lengthy break.

“Fleetwood has been close to success a few times at the Renaissance Club and punters are supporting him to break his duck on the PGA TOUR.”

Scotsman Robert MacIntyre, who finished runner up to McIlroy in a thrilling final round last year, is third on bet365’s list of slips taken and the Oban-born golfer has enjoyed a breakthrough year on the PGA TOUR.

He is marginally ahead of Masters runner-up Ludvig Aberg, who led the way at the U.S. Open at the halfway stage before an error-ridden weekend saw him drop out of contention.

Other popular bets include PGA Championship victor Xander Schauffele, three-time PGA TOUR winner Tom Kim and 2020 Scottish Open champion Aaron Rai.
