Back Bubba: US Masters
Defending champion Bubba Watson should be considered the favourite to win a third Masters title in four years at Augusta.
The American left-hander earned a second Green Jacket with a three-shot victory a year ago, having claimed his first Masters crown in 2012 when he defeated South African Louis Oosthuizen in a play-off.
It’s also the view of Ryder Cup ace, Ian Poulter…..who feels August is set up for lefties like Watson & Phil Mickelson.
It just sets up to his game, so you’d expect to see him on the board come Sunday.
“Phil and Bubba are both long-hitting left-handers, so that golf course lends itself to hitting the cut, and for right handers it lends to hitting a draw.” Ian Poulter
Here’s 4 other guys who maybe worth following and are definitely on top of their game at the moment…..
Dustin Johnson is one of the most talented of the current crop of American golfers on the PGA Tour and has racked up a cool $30 million in prize money since 2008. After an impressive win at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, many are heralding Johnson as Rory McIlroy’s most realistic challenger at 16/1.
Brandt Snedeker is the man with the finest name in PGA Tour golf will return to Augusta with aspirations of overcoming his major-winning duck. Despite a year to forget in 2014, Sneds is in-form after some time working with the celebrated swing coach, Butch Harmon. After five top 20 finishes in 2015 and having not missed the cut in his last seven Masters, he’ll be on many a punter’s betting slip at a price of 40/1.
Henrik Stenson is the current world number two enters the first major of the year on the back of three top five finishes in his last three events. After beating a recent bout of ‘flu, Stenson claims to be ready to achieve the first major win of his career despite never having finished in the top ten at Augusta. With the long game to cope here, the mighty Swede may be worth some attention at 18/1.
Jordan Spieth is the new kid on the block and fancied by many at 10/1 to go one better this year and improve on his joint-second place finish at Augusta last year. After throwing away a two-shot lead last year, the young gun is surely better placed to ensure he’s in contention once again come the final round.
Betfair are paying each-way places on the Top 7 finishers and you can get that below……
