Top Five Picks that could Win the Masters
Brooks Koepka came in second this year to none other than Tiger Woods. By winning the Masters, he would also be getting his first green jacket. Being the No. 1-ranked golfer in the world and coming up second in the Masters, I could see Koepka wanting to really solidify himself as the best golfer by winning the Masters.
The man, myth, and legend Tiger Woods won the Masters of 2019 and received his fifth green jacket. He only needs one more to tie Jack Nicklaus for all-time Masters wins. With his prestigious golf resume, you can never count out Woods as long as he has the ability to swing a golf club.
Dustin Johnson also came in second to Woods at the Masters. He has had seven top 10 finishes this year and most recently won the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship. These are the types of finishes you like to see that lead up to a competitive Masters.
Rory Mcllroy has had a tough go the last five years at majors. But he has had some positives to look at with 14 top 10s in his last 21 starts. He just recently won the WGC-HSBC Champions tournament. He has had a wonderful 2019 to make a case at the Masters.
Xander Schauffele also tied for second at the Masters, so he also has plenty of motivation to win it all. He has had two top 10 finishes this year. He most recently placed second at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions, right behind Mcllroy. He is also the ninth-ranked golfer in the world.
Who Gets the Green Jacket for 2020?
Koepka is the early favorite for the Masters tournament betting in 2020. By placing second at the Masters, currently being the No. 1 golfer in the world, and doubts about Woods’ health, it is reasonable to pick Koepka. But I do not agree with those odds for him compared to the other players in the field based on the rest of the season.
Everyone, including me, wants to see Woods claim his sixth jacket. But his health has been a major concern over the last few years and has been his biggest issue. At one time, he even considered giving up golf because he was not able to swing his driver with the force that he used to swing with, not to mention the pain that he felt on a daily basis from his back. Even though he won the 2019 Masters, he’s going to need to play it smart through the rest of the year and stay healthy.
With the two favorites ruled out, who does that leave for the Masters tournament betting?
I believe the next green jacket will go to Mcllroy. He has had 14 top 10 finishes this year so far, which is double what he accomplished in 2018. If he wins at the Masters, he will complete his career Grand Slam.
He is more motivated than ever, winning just about every golf tournament in his career except for the Masters. With that in mind, I think he will be able to carry that momentum going forward and claim his first green jacket at the 2020 Masters.
