With Americans having won the last 10 major tournaments on home soil, it’s unsurprising they dominate the favourites list. Fresh from winning the US Open in September, the in form Bryson Dechambeau is the favourite in the betting markets at $9. Having never before been the favourite for a major, the pressure will be on for him to perform.
Seeing as 11 of the top 14 golfers in the world are Americans, other men in the hunt include Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Patrick Reed and Xander Schauffele.

Last year’s winner, Tiger Woods, certainly isn’t fancied to take home the crown, but good value can be found on the star man for punters at $31.
Of the international contingent, Rory Mcllroy, Jon Rahm and Tyrell Hatton are all well and truly in with a chance of winning. It’ll be especially fascinating how McIlroy fares, for he’s desperately keen to add a Masters title to his list of achievements so he can complete the Grand Slam. Despite him being unable to win the world’s biggest golf event, the Northern Irishman is priced at a reasonable $13.
Interestingly, all of the last 10 winners were ranked 16 or higher, so it’ll be expected one of the big guns will come out trumps. With the action getting underway this week, golf fans the world over will be watching eagerly to see who can handle the pressure and weight of expectation to claim the coveted green jacket.
