Prediction: Rory McIlroy

This one will come down to McIlroy and Bradley, as the other players can't match their firepower. Look for that gap to be closed, as Bradley will be taking aggressive shots early and he's got the game to back that up. 

But ultimately, four shots is too much to overcome against a golfer of McIlroy's caliber. 

He will get down to 13-under, beating Bradley by two strokes.
