- Justin Thomas could be the one they all have to beat at the Masters with him producing some excellent performances so far this season without being rewarded.
- Thomas has finished in the top ten in six of his ten events to date with four of those resulting in top five finishes and he looks well-placed to break his duck here with his excellent short-game just what is required to shine around Augusta.
TIP: Winner e/w (14/1)
- Scottie Scheffler recently became world number one and his laid-back temperament could be just what is required to claim the green jacket come Sunday evening.
- The 25-year-old has won three PGA Tour events so far this year, including in his last outing at the Match Play. His recent form is excellent and that level of consistency and calmness cannot be ignored at Augusta.
TIP: Winner e/w (18/1)
- Xander Schauffele performs well in majors and his record in those is what makes him most appealing here having finished in the top ten in 18 appearances.
- That suggests place money at the very least is on the cards here and having finished in the top five on six occasions which included a tie for second here in 2019, Schauffele ticks a lot of boxes for this showpiece event.
TIP: Winner e/w (25/1)
- Two-time PGA Tour winner Tony Finau represents good value this week to challenge the places despite a somewhat frustrating year to date but he did produce some decent golf at the Match Play.
- The American has missed three cuts in his last six events but tends to finish in the top 40 when he makes it to the final two days of competition and if he can stick around into the weekend, it would not be a surprise to see him compete for a spot in the top ten, something he has achieved in his last three appearances at the Masters.
TIP: Winner e/w (66/1)
