The Masters Preview

History & Previous Winners

The Masters is one of the most exciting golf events of the season and has been played at Augusta National Course since 1933. One of the most synonymous aspects that come with the Major is the fact that the winner wins the green jacket. This tradition has been in place since 1949, with winning players having to return the jacket one year after winning the event.

Some of the most iconic players have won the Major throughout its prestigious history. Jack Nicklaus is the most successful player, as he has won the event on six previous occasions. Tiger Woods has won the event on five occasions, with his most recent success coming back in 2019, which remains one of the best comebacks that sport has ever seen. Dustin Johnson is the defending champion coming into The Masters this year, as he smashed the record score winning last year. He won with a score of 268, which was 20 under par.

Leading Contenders

One of the things that make The Masters so special is the fact that it is a wide-open field. Johnson is the favorite to defend his title at present. Johnson recently finished second in the Vivint Houston Open and has finished in the top ten on four occasions this season. His victory last year in The Masters was one of the most dominant that we have seen, which ensures that he is the main contender.

Justin Spieth returned to form with victory in last weekend’s Valero Texas Open, and he will be looking for a second Masters title after previously winning in 2015. Rory McIlroy hasn’t won a major for over five years but remains a prominent selection, with each-way chances. Justin Thomas has made the cut in the last two majors, and won The Players Championship late last year, and could be a decent-priced winner that appeals.

The Masters Pick & Prediction

Who will win The Masters this weekend:

It looks set to be an exciting weekend of action at Augusta, and a case can be made for a number of players at the top of the market. However, we are going to side with a player yet to win a major in his illustrious career but has finished twice at Augusta in the past. Lee Westwood has finished as runner-up as the Players Championship and Arnold Palmer Invitational this season, and he has an excellent each-way chance. He has finished in the top ten in five of the last nine Masters.
