Match Play: Rory’s Biggest Rival In 2015? Maybe Rickie Fowler

Rory McIlroy heads into 2015 as the favorite to win several tournaments and possibly complete the career grand slam at Augusta in April. For most, the question isn’t whether or not he’ll be the best player on tour, it’s who his biggest competitor will be. 

Some say Rickie Fowler, some say Tiger Woods. We won’t find out until mid-season, but there’s nothing wrong with a little prediction-making. That’s why we have “Match Play.”

John Maginnes and Jeff Rude go back and forth on some of golf’s hottest topics including Rory’s rival, Lydia Ko’s return to school, and the importance of Woods’ debut at the Hero World Challenge.

Former PGA Tour pro John Maginnes, longtime Golfweek Senior Writer Jeff Rude, and extreme sports champion Will Christien co-host Back9Network’s nightly talk show, The Clubhouse. The playful banter of Maginnes, Rude and Christien will echo the conversations one would hear at the 19th hole. The trio’s no-holds-barred discussions will cover the latest happenings both on and off the course, as they incorporate questions and guidance from viewers at home, celebrities and the game’s professionals.

Making a stop at The Clubhouse gives golf lovers across the country a perfect way to end the day, weeknights at 10 p.m. Eastern.
