RORY McILROY'S US Masters collapse was painful to watch and sore on the pocket.

He was one of my tips to win at Augusta and for more than three rounds the 33-1 shot looked unstoppable until his game went to pot.

Drives were pushed miles left then the Irish youngster lost all feel for the greens and missed a succession of tiddlers.

Bookies panicked as Tiger Woods charged into the lead but his bid failed to gather strength on the back nine and out of the shadows came a man the industry didn't fear, Charl Schwartzel.

The South African, who chipped in at the first and eagled the par-four third, came alive down the closing stretch with four successive birdies to overtake everyone and win by two.

Ladbrokes have reacted by installing the South African as 50-1 to win The Open at Sandwich while Woods is  6-1 favourite.

Euro top guns Martin Kaymer and Lee Westwood are 14-1 with Paddy Power and Betfred respectively with McIlroy 16-1 at Chandler.

Luke Donald, who came oh so close after a terrible start to his Masters campaign, is 28-1 at Blue Square and looks a decent each-way shout at this stage as he attempts to win his first Major.
