Names to Keep in Mind
Sergio Garcia was the winner of the 2017 Masters Tournament. He opens at 25/1 to win a second green jacket. Dustin Johnson enters this year’s Masters Tournament as an 8/1 favorite with the Golf Betting Lines. Rory McIlroy is a co-favorite at 8/1. Justin Thomas is a 9/1 selection. Jordan Spieth will be an appealing choice at 12/1. Bubba Watson and Justin Rose are 14/1 choices. Popular Phil Mickelson is at 16/1 with Jason Day. Woods is garnering tremendous attention as he launches a major comeback. He is the last repeat champion of The Masters in 2001 and 2002.
Augusta National Golf Club
Augusta National Golf Club was opened in 1934 and hasn’t changed much at all since then. Known for its picturesque beauty there is no other course like it on tour. Although ranked the tenth best course in America most call it their personal favorite. Tradition and ritual are front and center of Augusta’s culture. The course is a par 72.
Dustin Johnson is the Sportsbook online favorite with good reason. He is currently ranked number one on the Official World Golf Ranking. Johnson’s best finish at the Masters was fourth in 2016. Johnson has one win in the six events that he has played in this year. Justin Thomas is right behind Johnson in the Official World Golf Ranking. He has played in seven events this year with a win in the Honda Classic. Despite being ranked third on the OWGR chart Jon Rahm is an 18/1 selection. The Spaniard has one win in seven events this year.
The man getting the most attention is ranked number 104 on the OWGR standings. Tiger Woods has not posted a win since 2013 but has shown marked improvement on the tour this year. His second-place finish at the Valspar Championship ignited interest. Woods has suffered from a broken-down body and spirit the last five years. But he is still the biggest draw in the game and at the betting window.
Jordan Spieth is considered the lead player to replace Woods as the top player in the game. Spieth is ranked fourth in the world and already has a Masters title from 2015. He has also won the US Open and The Open. At age 24 Spieth is nothing but future.
Matchup to Watch
Jordan Spieth vs. Tiger Woods is the defining matchup with the Golf Betting Lines. It is a showdown between golf’s past and future. Spieth should have a closet full of green jackets when he retires. He may set the records that Woods was touted to shatter.
