There’s no better way to wind down a wild March than with the Masters. The first golfers have already teed-off at Augusta National to begin four glorious days on the links.
As always, Tiger Woods is on the front of every causal golf fans’ mind. Searching for his first win since 2005, a few young guns stand in his way. The last four champions were first-time winners. Will that streak continue? The odds say that will be likely be the case.
Rory McIlroy 8/1
Dustin Johnson 11/1
Justin Rose 14/1
Rickie Fowler 15/1
Jordan Spieth 16/1
Tiger Woods 16/1
Brooks Koepka 20/1
Francesco Molinari 20/1
Jon Rahm 20/1
Justin Thomas 20/1
I’d love to see Louisville native Justin Thomas win his first green jacket, but let’s be honest, we want to see Tiger return to glory. When he’s at his best, golf is at its best. He does things I simply cannot comprehend. How does this happen?
