10 golfers to watch in 2019.

Masters betting

4 April 2019, by:  BET Contributer


The Masters is golf’s Super Bowl, golf’s Champions League final, golf’s … well, everything. The year’s first Major attracts the world’s attention with the manicured fairways of Augusta beautified only by the flowering azaleas.

The drive down Magnolia lane is the stuff of legends and once a year, the world waits with bated breath to see who will have their shoulders clad in the famed Green Jacket.

As with all sport, golf provides a tremendous amount of statistics and scanning the internet, you will find a number of punters offering their rationale in providing tips and insight into who could follow Patrick Reed – you see only three players have gone back to back with the last being Tiger Woods in 2002.

In processing, the history of the event it’s clear to see a few trends being outlined. Only one player has triumphed on debut (Fuzzy Zoeller all the way back in 1979) and only two have won when never having made the cut before (Zoeller and before him, Gene Sarazen in 1936). So, you might want to swerve first-timers and those yet to taste the weekend pimento cheese sandwiches.

While a excellent short-game is a must, there are three other keys to success at Augusta. One needs a high ball flight (that puts Branden Grace’s chances in jeopardy with one of the lowest flights on tour) to go with a power game (strengthening the cause of players like Brooks Koepka and Rory McIlroy) and then currently in good space from 175-200 yards out (Tiger, Marc Leishman, Rickie Fowler and Hideki Matsuyama all trend in that category).

That being said, the Masters can still offer first-timers and short hitters should some poor weather pull through Georgia. Zach Johnson is a Green Jacket holder and he’s no bomber while Tony Finau finished with a top 10 last year without the strength of two good ankles.

Oh and don’t forget to avoid the Par 3 winner and anyone who misses the cut this week at the Valero Texas Open.

Rory McIlroy 7.50
Tiger Woods 15.50
