A win this week would give Rory the career grand slam. That would put him in a special group with only 5 other golfers accomplishing that milestone. The Northern Irishmen is playing some of the best golf in the world right now. He also has five straight top 10 finishes at Augusta!
-Tiger Woods- Tiger Woods is healthy. Tiger Woods has won on tour since his last trip to Augusta. Tiger Woods has won here 4 times. Tiger Woods was in the hunt in the last two majors. Tiger Woods is back to playing world class golf. If Tiger Woods wins, the world erupts!
-Rickie Fowler- Being a top ranked golfer in the world for the past few years, but always criticized for not winning a Major. A win at Augusta would put the haters to rest for Rickie. He’s coming into the tournament with a win under his belt already this year at the Waste Management and has all the shots in his arsenal to score low here. Can he execute, well see!
Listen, I know the gun only has one showing at the Masters with a mediocre finish, but since then Xander has came to play on the biggest stages. Two top 10s in majors last year shows he’s ready. Combine this with his ability to hit high right to left draws and hitting nearly 72% of GIR, Xander is great value this week.
-JB Holmes- Dark Horse of the week is big dog JB Holmes. Two players with over 100-1 odds have won the Masters in the last 10 years. He won earlier this year at Riviera, a good comparison course for success at Augusta. In addition, JB has the length to capitalize on the par 5s here. I believe if we have a down week and players don’t go to low, JB could slide into the hunt on Sunday.
