May 19, 2016 by Marc Jerbs

On Thursday, the European Tour shifts to K Club in County Kildare, Ireland for the Irish Open. Irish Rory McIlroy will host the tournament courtesy of his Rory Foundation.

Rory McIlroy looks to have a successful week in his home soil in the tournament he is hosting. He will arrive at K Club with five top ten finish this season. He will also seek his first European title in his home soil.

He will be paired with defending champion Soren Kjeldsen and Andy Sullivan over the first two days. Following them would be the trio of Masters champion Danny Willett, Rafa Cabrera Bello and Lee Westwood.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Rory McIlroy as the favorite to win the Irish Open on Sunday afternoon. Danny Willett and Shane Lowry are among his strongest challengers in the tournament.
