Rory McIlroy Masters Betting Odds – Time For The Career Grand Slam?
We have Rory McIlroy Masters betting odds for you as the Northern Irishman seeks to win the tournament that has eluded him for so long.
This is the big one for McIlroy and given recent form the pressure will be on him at Augusta just as much as it usually is. If the Hollywood native can finally get his hands on a green jacket he will have completed the career grand slam and put his name right up amongst the legends of the game.
In this post you will find McIlroy’s latest Masters betting odds along with a preview of his chances at winning at Augusta National this April.
Rory McIlroy Masters Betting Odds
Rory McIlroy is 8/1 in the betting odds to win the Masters in 2023. Those odds make McIlroy the second favourite in the betting market to be the champion this year at Augusta National behind only Spaniard Jon Rahm who has been installed as the 7/1 Masters betting favourite.
This isn’t unfamiliar territory to Rory who has more often than not gone into the first major of the year as one of the favourites in the betting. Typically he has been somewhere in the 10/1 range in the odds and despite numerous top five and top 10 finishes he has been unable to deliver an outright win for bettors.
Could this be the year that he rewards his backers? Well, there are a lot of reasons to believe that it could be including both his form in the last year and at Augusta National.

Rory McIlroy’s Current Form
McIlroy’s Wins In 2023
The Northern Irish man already has a win under his belt in 2023 and it came with a lot of press coverage. McIlroy won the Dubai Desert Classic at the end of January, notably defeating his foe Patrick Reed by a single stroke with a birdie on the 72nd hole. Reed had sued McIlroy so the victory was about as sweet as they come.
Most Recent Form
Since that win Rory hasn’t been lighting the world on fire. At the Phoenix Open a T32 finish was all that he could muster for what was a disappointing week in Arizona. The Genesis Invitational didn’t offer much more than that either as McIlroy had to be content with a position of T29, 13 shots back of champion Jon Rahm.
In the Official World Golf Rankings McIlroy is in third place just behind world #1 Jon Rahm and Scottie Scheffler at #2. His mediocre recent performances have not been indicative of the type of form that has earned him his spot at number three in the world rankings.
Recent Major Form
The last time we saw McIlroy at a major was during the 2022 Open Championship. It looked like for all the world that he would win that tournament on Sunday but he just couldn’t buy a putt in the final round.
As a result, he couldn’t get momentum going and was forced to endure yet more major heartbreak in his quest to end his drought in golf’s biggest tournaments.
Rory McIlroy’s Masters Form
Despite McIlroy not having been able to get his hands on a coveted green jacket as of yet this is a tournament that Rory typically performs very strongly in. He has 7 top-10 finishes at Augusta National in his 14 appearances at the Masters. That is a level of consistency at this event that no one else in this Masters field (bar Tiger) can match.
Last time out for Rory at the Masters it was another strong finish to add to his impressive resume. In 2022 he finished 2nd, three shots behind Masters champion Scottie Scheffler. His final round of 64 shot him up the leaderboard.
McIlroy’s finish last year has become an all too common theme for him at Augusta. He has often had a poor Thursday or Friday that takes him out of contention before a very strong weekend which earns him a good finish on the leaderboard despite never truly contending.
Another one of the big names to watch at this year’s Masters is Tiger Woods. We previewed the betting odds and chances of Woods at this years Masters in a recent post.
Rory McIlroy Major Wins
Rory McIlroy has won four major championships to date in his illustrious playing career. His first win at the majors came as a fresh faced 22-year old who took the golfing world by storm as he dominated the field en route to the 2011 US Open. His performance that week was historic as he set the US Open scoring records for 72 hole, 54 hole and 36 holes.
The 2012 PGA Championship followed at Kiawah Island and later the 2014 Open Championship at Royal Liverpool. At the time it looked like McIlroy was destined for the career grand slam and perhaps to even win 10+ majors in his career.
Unfortunately that is not how things have transpired at the majors since then. He secured his fourth, and to date final, major at the 2014 PGA Championship at Valhalla. The Masters however has eluded him but if he can finally slip on a green jacket this Masters Sunday then there will be some very emotional scenes at Augusta.
