Three Players Who Look Overpriced to Win
the US Masters
The US Masters at Augusta National Club is the opening Major Championship of the year in golf. This
tournament has produced some big-priced winners through its history, with Danny Willets success in 2016 the most notable recent surprise.
a look at three players who should be considered on your shortlist for the tournament this year.
American Will Zalatoris has only featured in five Major Championships so far in his career, but he already has three top-10
finishes. His best performance in a major came in the 2021 US Masters when he finished runner-up behind Hideki Matsuyama.
Zalatoris looked really at
home at Augusta on his first appearance at the golf course in Georgia. He produced four solid rounds of 70-68-71-70, which left him just one shot behind the
winner after the 72 holes.
The 2021 PGA Rookie of the Year looks to have a big tournament success in him. He will relish a return to the US Masters
in April. Given how well he played in 2021, he is sure to be one of the leading US Masters betting tips, especially at odds of 35/1.
Justin Rose (45/1)
Former US Open
winner Justin Rose consistently plays well at Augusta. It is a course which suits his game and although he has yet to win a Green Jacket, he is often
at the top end of the leader board in this tournament.
Rose finished second in 2015 and 2017. He lost a play-off to Sergio Garcia in the latter of
those near misses. The Englishman also led the field after 18 and 36 holes in 2021. He began his tournament with a round of 65. Unfortunately for the 10-time
PGA Tour winner, he was unable to follow that up with anything better than a 72.
At the age of 41, Rose has a wealth of experience in the sport now. He
deserves to win at least one more Major Championship in his career. A victory at Augusta would be a fitting reward for so many great rounds at Augusta. He also
has a much better chance than his outright odds of 45/1 indicate.
IIt is still hard to believe that Rickie Fowler is not a Major Championship winner yet. He is arguably the greatest talent in the sport
who has not won one of the sports four big tournaments.
Fowler has been third or better in all four majors, including a runner-up finish in
the 2018 US Masters. He is also a former
world number four, so it is a surprise to see him at 60/1 in the betting, even if his form over the last 12 months has not been great.
The American has worked very hard on his swing during the off-season. He shot a round of 66 at the
Farmers Championship in early 2022 where he hit all 18 greens in regulation. The 33-year-old will be desperate to break his maiden in the majors this year and
it could just occur at Augusta.
Good luck with your US Masters bets in 2022. Hopefully, you get off to a good start for the year in the Major
