Eight is Great For the Win!

  1. Justin Thomas

In 10 events this season, Thomas has made the cut each time while recording five Top 10 finishes, including a third place finish at the Waste Management Open and a second place finish two weeks later at the Genesis Open. While Thomas comes into August off a modest T30 in the Honda Classic and T35 at The PLAYERS Championship, he’s finished T22 and T17 in his last two appearances at Augusta after a T39 in his Masters debut back in 2016.

  1. John Rahm

In 10 tournaments this season, Rahm has recorded nine Top 25 finishes and six Top 10 finishes while winning the Hero World Challenge in December. Rahm finished T6 at the Valspar Championship and closed with a 68-65-69 in last year’s Masters to finish fourth. I’m expecting Rahm to challenge for the win.

  1. Justin Rose

In six events this season, Rose has recorded a quartet of Top 10 finishes while claiming the 2019 Farmers Insurance Open title in January. Rose is third in birdie average (4.90) and ranks inside the Top 15 in scoring average and sand save percentage. Rose comes into the Masters looking solid after finishing T8 at The PLAYERS Championship. In addition to all of this, Rose has also recorded seven top 15s in his last eight appearances at Augusta.

  1. Paul Casey

Casey has four Top 10 finishes in 11 events this season with three Top 5 finishes and one win at the Valspar Championship in mid-March. More importantly, Casey has four straight Top 15 finishes at Augusta and seven overall dating back to 2004, including three straight Top 6 finishes from 2015 to 2017.

  1. Rickie Fowler

Arguably the best player in the world to never win a major, Rickie Fowler looks like a threat heading into the 2019 Masters. In nine events this season, Fowler has made the cut all nine times while recording three Top 10 finishes and winning the Waste Management Open to close out January. More importantly, Fowler has finished in the Top 15 four times in his last five appearances at Augusta with a T5 finish in 2014 and a second place finish a year ago.

  1. Bubba Watson

I know Bubba Watson is now a middle-of-the-pack contender, but he’s made the cut eight times in nine events this season with a pair of Top 10 finishes, including a fourth place finish at the Waste Management Open in January. Watson also finished an impressive fourth in his last event at the Valspar Championship in March and I believe the two-time Masters champ (2012, 2014) will contend in a big way after finishing an encouraging fifth here a year ago.

  1. Rory McIlroy

In eight tournaments this season, McIlroy has recorded an impressive seven Top 10 finishes and a stunning five Top 5 finishes in his last six tournaments, not to mention he comes into the Masters off an impressive victory at The PLAYERS Championship. Now, McIlroy has recently added meditation to help him conquer the mental aspect of the game.

“Look, I’m not going to go live with the monks for a couple of months in Nepal,” said McIlroy.”I meditated for 20 minutes on the Sunday morning of the Players Championship. My routine now consists of meditation, juggling and mind training, doing all the stuff to get you in the right place.”

  1. Tiger Woods

That’s right golf bettors, I’m going with the incomparable Tiger Woods to get back on top of the golf world by winning his fifth Masters tournament. In five events this year, Woods has recorded a pair of Top 10 finishes and comes into this year’s Masters off a 30t place finish at The PLAYERS Championship in mid-March. More importantly, Woods knows this course and has dominated on more than one occasion. Woods, the highest-ranked player (at 12th) of all former champions in the field, has four career wins here (1997, 2001, 2002, 2005) and has a mind-boggling 13 Top 10 finishes in 19 appearances as a professional.

“I’ve got a pretty good library in my head of how to play the golf course,” said Woods. “This is unlike any other golf tournament. It’s just a very special place.”

No one is counting Woods out after his return to being one of the game’s elite players a year ago.

“I would just never rule him [Woods] out. Greatness is still in him,” said rival, Phil Mickelson, who is chasing his own fourth Masters title.

Clearly, Woods is seriously motivated heading into a tournament he knows better than anyone else on the PGA Tour.

“I don’t need to win again, but I really want to,” said Woods.
