Dustin Johnson (+850)
Who could forget DJ’s insane record-setting performance at the 2020 Masters? Johnson destroyed the competition at Augusta in November of last year by scoring 20 under par 268 to win the $2.7 million top prize — and the Green Jacket as well. Johnson has finished inside the top 10 in each of his last five appearances at Augusta National Golf Club, where’s he’s also missed the cut just once in 10 starts. Johnson hasn’t looked terrific of late, having finished no better than a T28 in his last three starts, but he’s not the golfer you want to underestimate. There are still not a lot of players out there who could inspire confidence the way Johnson does, and it could be just a matter of time before he turns it on again.
Jordan Spieth (+1100)
Jordan Spieth is back. For the first time in over 1,300 days, the former No. 1 player in the world played like a No. 1 player, as Spieth ended a very long winless slump by emerging victorious in the 2021 Valero Texas Open last Sunday. Spieth fulfilled what many expected, as he was really looking good heading into that event, with a T9 in the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play a week prior and a T4 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard early last March. Now that he’s gotten rid of the monkey off his back, Spieth will look to win his first major since 2017. Spieth had won the Masters before, topping the field in 2015 by shooting 18 under par 270. Spieth has four top 10s in seven career starts at Augusta.
HIGH VALUE SLEEPERS
Tyrrell Hatton (+5000)
Hatton has not had a good performance at Augusta, where he’s been cut twice in four career starts. In the other two appearances there, he finished 56th in 2019 and 44th in 2018. Still, Hatton has collected three wins over the past 13 months to get promoted into the top 10 rankings.
Matt Wallace (+6000)
Wallace has come alive of late, as he finished solo third at the Valero Texas Open last week after a T28 at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play late last month. Take note also that he is fourth this season with a .981 clip in SG: APPROACH THE GREEN.
Henrik Stenson (+40000)
Stenson hasn’t found lots of success at Augusta, but one thing about him is that he’s one of the more experienced players when it comes to teeing off there. Stenson has made 15 appearances at Augusta, though he’s only managed to sneak into the top 10 once, which was back in 2018 (fifth). Stenson’s form heading into the 2021 Masters isn’t good. He’s been cut in all of his last four starts.
Jordan Spieth’s redemption tour continues, as he wins the 2021 Masters Tournament.
