The world number one added to his 2016 US Open major with a win at last year’s Masters in November. His performances at the recent Players Championship and WGC were rather poor by his lofty standards, but he still remains the favourite to win here come Sunday evening.
DeChambeau won his first major at the US Open in September, and he’s also one of the favourites to win this year’s Masters. He is in decent form with a recent win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and a tie for third at the Players. Will DeChambeau be wearing the famous green jacket on Sunday?
The Masters is the only major that eludes McIlroy, and it has also been seven years since he last won a major of any kind. His recent form suggests that he’ll be waiting even longer to end his wait. He failed to make the cut at the Players Championship, but he did finish a respectable 6th at the WGC.
His impressive win at the Players Championship meant that Thomas is one of the favourites for the first major of the year. His performances at the majors have been disappointing since his PGA Championship win in 2017. However, last year, there was some improvement with a fourth-place finish at the Masters and a tie for eighth at the US Open.
The Spaniard has been incredibly consistent in recent months with countless top-ten finishes, and he also held the world number one ranking for a short amount of time in 2020. He hasn’t won a major, though, and he will be desperate to get that monkey off his back as soon as possible, but the longer it takes to win one, the harder it will become mentally to get over the line.
The four-time major winner is at higher odds this year than some might expect, simply because he is recovering from knee surgery. It was unclear if he would enter the tournament, but he has confirmed his appearance. Koepka has never won the Masters before, and considering the above-mentioned information, he may have to wait at least another year to do so.
Spieth ended his four-year drought with a win at the Valero Texas Open on Sunday. Could this be the spark for a return to form for the three-time major winner? He has already won in Augusta after picking up his first major in 2015 here, and the odds of him winning again have shortened considerably after his win in Texas.
There will be few surprises considering the top players will be more familiar with this course than most others. A strong iron game will be a vital component on the road to victory.
