Rory McIlroy Will NEVER Win Another US Open Golf Tournament According To AI

Ahead of the 124th US Open this week from Pinehurst Golf Club, we used an AI software to predict the next 20 tournaments and it believes Rory McIlroy will never reign victorious again.

Scottie Scheffler To Win Four US Open Titles In Next 20 Years

The US Open is viewed as the most difficult major of the year on the golfing roster. The average scoring at the US Open is far lower to par than that of the Masters, Open Championship and PGA Championship. There have of course been some exceptions over the years, but the US Open is generally played at the toughest courses in the trickiest conditions.

One man who AI are predicting won’t find the task of the US Open too tough over the next two decades is world number one and two-time Masters champion Scottie Scheffler. Our AI simulation tool is predicting that Scheffler will win four US Open titles in the next 20 years, including this weekend at Pinehurst Golf Club in South Carolina, USA.

Scheffler is head and shoulders above every other player in the world right now on the PGA Tour, and his dominance is set to continue if AI is correct and he continues to win multiple golf tournaments, including four US Open’s and multiple more majors, in the next 20 year period.

Our AI tool is predicting that 15-year-old prodigy Miles Russell will turn professional in the coming years, before winning his first US Open title in 2037 before winning it again back-to-back in 2043 & 2044.

Fellow amateur stars Gordon Sargent and Christo Lamprecht are also set for US Open success in years to come according to AI, winning the 2040 and 2041 US Open’s respectively.

Household names in the world of golf such as five-time major champion Brooks Koepka, reigning PGA Championship winner Xander Schauffele, three-time major winner Jordan Spieth and reigning FedEx Cup champion Viktor Hovland are all set to taste victory in the US Open in the next two decades too.

Other former major winners such as Collin Morikawa, Jon Rahm and Bryson DeChambeau are also set to win more major titles at the US Open in the next 20 years. Not to mention big names such as Will Zalatoris, Max Homa and Sungjae Im.

Northern Irishman Tom McKibbin is set for US Open success in 2039 if our AI simulation tool is correct, whilst Tiger Woods’ son Charlie will be triumphant at the 142nd US Open in 18 years time.

Rory McIlroy’s Major Drought To Continue As He NEVER Again Wins The US Open

A name golf fans perhaps expected to see on the list of the next 20 US Open champions as predicted by AI is that of Rory McIlroy. However, after running the AI simulation it is apparent that the 2011 US Open champion and multiple major winner will never win another US Open title as a professional golfer.

The Northern Irishman is 35-years-old now, and will likely be retired from the sport of golf in 20 years time. The vast majority of the best players in the world nowadays are younger than McIlroy, with the standard of fields just too classy on a regular basis.

Although it mightn’t be a popular choice, time may well be running out for McIlroy to win his first major championship in over a decade.

If AI is indeed correct, the former long-reigning world number one won’t win the US Open again, and may never win any of the other three majors either.

He is certainly still one of the best and most consistent players in the world today, but the major drought is set to continue for Rory, at least in the US Open anyway.

Tiger Woods’ Son Charlie To Continue Golfing Legacy By Winning 2042 US Open

A standout winner of the US Open in the next two decades is none other than Charlie Woods – son of the golfing great and 15-time major champion Tiger Woods. Charlie is just 15-years-old as of today, and is set to win his maiden US Open title in 2042 at the age of 33 if our AI simulation is indeed correct.

Woods has some big shoes to fill if he is ever to be as dominant a force as his father was on the PGA Tour, but he has shown signs already that he has the game and prowess to go all the way and follow in his father’s footsteps as an elite golfer.

Although he may have a lot of pressure on his shoulders, he undoubtedly has arguably the greatest golfer of all time as his mentor in Tiger Woods.

A major win for Charlie Woods would be an incredibly popular and nostalgic one for golf fans, watching the next generation of Woods’ lift the famous US Open trophy aloft. Who knows, the US Open triumph might just be one of multiple major wins for Charlie if he is to turn professional and take up a career in golf, just like his father.

Key Factors Influencing Future European Championship Winners

We have provided AI with prompts to assist in achieving more authentic victors. It possesses extensive knowledge regarding successful players as of today and who could emerge in the coming years, resulting in the potential to dominate professional golf over the next two decades.

Here is the full list of key factors and why specific players have been backed to win the US Open over the next 20 years:

  1. Historical & Current Success: Players such as Scottie Scheffler, Xander Schauffele, Brooks Koepka, Jordan Spieth, Jon Rahm and Bryson DeChambeau are some of the best players in the world right now and will continue to be there or thereabouts for years to come.
  2. Emerging Players: Players that are constantly improving such as Max Homa, Collin Morikawa, Will Zalatoris and Sungjae Im, might become regular contenders in majors in years to come.
  3. Youth Development: Young players who are not yet regularly competing on the PGA Tour such as Tom McKibbin, Gordon Sargent and Christo Lamprecht will be forces to be reckoned with in years to come once they have fully developed.
  4. Raw Talent & Family Tradition: Charlie Woods has his dad Tiger as a mentor which will help him massively in years to come. Another 15-year-old Miles Russell has decades left in the sport and is evidently super talented despite still being a teenager, like Charlie Woods too.

Reasoning Of Potential US Open Winners Over The Next 20 Years

  • Scottie Scheffler – Talent in abundance, dominant force in golf for years to come. Best player in the world by a distance right now
  • Collin Morikawa – Super consistent performer, multiple major winner and still plenty of years left in the game
  • Viktor Hovland – Continue to threaten in all of the majors, proved he can win on the big stage after 2023 FedEx Cup
  • Brooks Koepka – Two-time US Open winner, virtually impossible to stop in the majors when he’s at his best
  • Jon Rahm – Historically strong in US Open’s, former winner and sensational talent
  • Max Homa – Got the game to win everything, just a matter of putting it together all at one for four days
  • Xander Schauffele – Finally tasted major success this year, the floodgates could open now
  • Bryson DeChambeau – Former US Open winner, proven star in professional golf, not afraid to make changes and adapt
  • Will Zalatoris – Always a player in majors, runner-up in 2022, will come good eventually and win his maiden major
  • Jordan Spieth – Won multiple majors already, inconsistent but hard to stop when at his best
  • Sungjae Im – Proven winner on the PGA Tour, will eventually put it all together in a major championship
  • Miles Russell – 15-year-old golf prodigy who has already played on the PGA Tour, could dominate for years to come
  • Tom McKibbin – Young star on the European Tour, soon to make a name for himself in America as well
  • Gordon Sargent – Best amateur in the world as of today, will make waves in the professional game once he turns over
  • Christo Lamprecht – Stellar amateur and emerging force, soon to turn pro and take the PGA Tour by storm
  • Charlie Woods – Son of the great Tiger Woods, elite golfing genes


Lee Astley, Head of News at Instant Casinos, commented on the data saying:

“Scottie Scheffler continuing to dominate the world of golf for the next 10-15 years comes as absolutely no surprise at all. He is still only in his mid-20s and has plenty of years left at the top level of professional golf. Scheffler is well on his way to winning 10+ major championships and could even knock on the door of Tiger Woods’ 15 and Jack Nicklaus’ 18 the way he is playing right now.

“Sadly for Rory McIlroy fans, the major championship heartache is set to continue if our AI simulation tool is correct. Although he has knocked on the door several times in recent years, it seems McIlroy’s days of winning majors could well be behind him already.

“It is worth noting that Tiger Woods’ son Charlie is set to win the 2042 US Open according to AI, whilst 15-year-old golf prodigy Miles Russell will win three US Open’s in the next 20 years. No surprise at all to see Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau, Jordan Spieth, Xander Schauffele and Jon Rahm add to their major championship tally in the next 20 years either.”
