JUNO BEACH, Fla. — The team of Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson will face off against the two Oklahoma State alumni, Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff in the TaylorMade Driving Relief on May 17. All of the money that is raised will go towards COVID-19 relief.

While the event is still over a week away, sportsbooks know that betting on golf is in demand now and have listed odds for this star-studded matchup.

McIlroy & Johnson

Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson are heavy favorites to win the TaylorMade Driving Relief with -250 odds and it is clear on why. Both McIlroy and Johnson have impressive resumes including multiple PGA Tour victories and international victories. Both also have over 20 years of experience combined in the PGA.

Rory McIlroy’s highlights include 18 PGA Tour victories with wins such as the US Open in 2011, The PGA Championship in 2014, The Players Championship in 2019 and most recently the World Gold Championship in 2020. McIlroy has the experience and victories to back up his team’s -250 odds alone.

Dustin Johnson has had an impressive run during his career as well with 20 PGA Tour victories. Those victories include World Golf Championships in 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2019, The US Open in 2016 and the Sentry Tournament of Champions in 2018.

Both of these accomplishments alone could carry their favored -250 odds at online sportsbooks let alone the fact that they are playing on the same team. Bettors should feel comfortable picking the favorites here.

Fowler & Wolff

Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff are considered the underdogs in the TaylorMade Driving Relief with +175 odds, but it is not so much on the Rickie Fowler side as his achievements speak for themselves. It lies more on Matthew Wolff as he is a young player just getting started in the PGA and is looking to prove himself here as he goes up against a strong team.

Wolff is just 21 years old and playing on the same team as Rickie Fowler, let that sink in. He has just one PGA Tour victory that came in 2019 at the 3M open but he has made his mark on other tournaments as well. He tied for 11th place in the Sentry Tournament of Champions and tied for 13th at the ZOZO Championship. He will be looking to overcome that underdog feel and prove the odds wrong.

Rickie Fowler needs no introduction as he has had an impressive career thus far. He has five PGA Tour victories including The Players Championship in 2015 and the Waste Management Phoenix Open in 2019. He also made the cut for the Ryder Cup National Team four times and the President's Cup three times.

Although this team is far behind in the odds, Fowler does not have to prove himself in this one as much as Wolff does. If they do come out victorious, those who bet on their +175 odds will be happy with the payout.
