Cognizant Classic 2024 Picks and Predictions

This might finally be the week that the odds-on favorite will come away with a win on the PGA Tour. Rory McIlroy has a significant skill advantage compared to the rest of the field and that’s reflected in the odds.

Check out our predictions and picks for the 2024 Cognizant Classic, including a +3300 longshot that offers plenty of value this week.

Rory McIlroy (+750)

Rory McIlroy comes into the Cognizant Classic in good form. Over his last seven tournaments, he’s finished in the top 24 six times. He successfully defended his 2024 Hero Dubai Desert Classic last month.

McIlroy has already won this event before in 2012 when it was known as the Honda Classic. While he hasn’t won the event in over a decade, McIlroy ranks first in strokes gained off the tee, third in greens in regulations, second in driving distance and first in birdie or better percentage over the last 50 rounds.

Chris Kirk (+3000)

Kirk started the year off with a bang by winning the 2024 Sentry in January. Since then he’s added two more top 26 finishes in his last five events. He is the 2023 defending champion and enters in with great form, which should make him a trendy pick at +3000 odds.

His game fits well to the PGA National. In his last three starts at the Cognizant Classic, he’s finished in the top 25 or better each time, including his win last year.

Min Woo Lee (+3300)

His time is coming. Min Woo Lee continues his journey this week in search of his first PGA Tour win. Lee had an impressive season last year notching top 10 finishes at The Players, U.S. Open, the Travelers and Zozo Championship.

He’s one of the longest players on the Tour, which is give him an advantage this weekend. Lee ranks 11th in strokes gained off-the-tee, 10 in driving accuracy, and fourth in average club head speed. Look for Lee to be knocking on the door of his first ever PGA Tour win this weekend.
