It’s Masters week! The top golfers are all in Augusta, Georgia snacking on Augusta National’s traditional Pimento Cheese sandwiches and taking part in the preliminary events heading into the start of play on Thursday. As can be expected, the top of the favorites list is packed with big names but Rory McIlroy is tapped as the odds on favorite to win outright.

McIlroy, at +650, enters the tournament slightly ahead of Dustin Johnson who is at +900. The two players are the only ones under +1000. McIlroy has had a solid 2019 as he won the PLAYERS Championship, was second at the World Golf Championships – Mexico and T4 at the Genesis Open. The 29-year-old player from Northern Ireland has finished inside the top-ten in seven of the eight events he has played in this season.

There are the six players coming in at +1600 or below, including McIlroy and Johnson, according to intertops.eu. The most interesting thing about this list is that none of these players have won the Masters besides Tiger Woods and his last Augusta wins came back-to-back in 2001 – 2002.

 

Rory McIlroy+650
Dustin Johnson+900
Justin Rose+1200
Tiger Woods+1400
Justin Thomas+1600
Jon Rahm+1600

 

The biggest factor for players at the 2019 Masters may be the weather. The Augusta area could have rain and thunderstorms during the entire event. A wet course has already delayed and canceled practice times and play could be halted due to lightning if the forecast is accurate.

Past Winners

Any of the above players could work through wet play and a soggy course but you would also have to factor in seasoned golfers such as Phil Mickelson, Sergio García, and Ian Poulter. Both Mickelson and García have won the Green Jacket in the last ten years. In fact, the last ten Masters Champions includes seven players that could be considered a dark horse pick, +5000 or below, including last years Champions Patrick Reed.

 

2018 Patrick Reed+5000
2017 Sergio García+4000
2016 Danny Willet+15000
2015 Jordan Spieth+2000
2014 Bubba Watson+3300
2013 Adam Scott+4000
2012 Bubba Watson+3300
2011 Charl Schwartzel+10000
2010 Phil Mickelson+4000
2009 Ángel Cabrera+100000

 

2019 Masters Prediction

The field is loaded, as it always is for the Masters, and there are plenty of players worthy of taking home the famed green jacket trophy. The weather is something to watch but so is how last years Champion will take on this year’s challenges. Reed played his college golf at Augusta and his family, estranged, live only a few miles away from the course.

According to some reports, the defending champ is worried that some of his family may show up to watch him defend his title. If Reed can keep his head straight he could be the player to watch along with Tiger Woods if he stays healthy and his neck tightness does not show up again.

But a player like Brooks Koepka may jump to the front and surprise everyone. Koepka has won three of the last six Majors two of which came last season at the US Open and the PGA Championship. Don’t be surprised if defending Masters Champion Patrick Reed is the one helping Brook Koepka put on his first green jacket this coming Sunday.
