Previewing 2019 Masters Tournament

masters-hero7

This is the ultimate golfing event of the year and undoubtedly the most important tournament in the entire PGA campaign. Winning the Green Jacket is something all golfers envision winning at some point whether it’s as a kid or just starting out their professional careers. There have been some incredible moments whether it’s out of sheer remarkably incredible comebacks or failures, this is one of the most watched sporting events for a reason. Augusta National has had many historical moments, but another could happen this time around. Patrick Reed will look to retain his crown from last year, but this is such an unpredictable and dramatic tournament, anything could happen. With that being said, let’s take a look at the favorites and the dark horses for this tournament.

Favorites

Rory McIlroy

Dustin Johnson

Justin Rose

Rickie Fowler

Jordan Spieth

Tiger Woods

Spieth came close to repeating in 2016, but choked on the final day. However, he always fares well there. McIlroy will be trying to complete the career Grand Slam which would be remarkable. Johnson and Rose are talented players who might be just a few short years away from winning a Green Jacket. Fowler is due to win a major championship, could this be it? And when mentioning favorites, you can never forget Tiger Woods and his accolades.

 

Dark Horses

Brooks Koepka

Francesco Molinari

HaoTong Li

Vijay Singh

There’s been a lot of talks about these golfers as they all have shown promise of doing big things. The most notable is Singh, but Li, Molinari, and Koepka could be household names very soon. These guys could possibly come out of nowhere and win it like how Danny Willett did it last year.

 

Others to Watch

Tony Finau

Bryson DeChambeau

Justin Thomas

Jon Rahm

Paul Casey

Jason Day

Hideki Matsuyama

Matt Kuchar

Tommy Fleetwood

Louis Oosthuizen

Bubba Watson

Webb Simpson

Adam Scott

Patrick Reed

Sergio Garcia

Marc Leishman

Xander Schauffele

Henrik Stenson

Phil Mickelson

These are all really good golfers and all could make a legitimate shot at the title, but this is a list meant for seeing what they do. Most of them should at least make it to the final day, but usually it’s a smaller crowd on that day.

 

Predictions

James Rowe: Rory McIlroy. He’s been playing really well of late and it almost seems like he is destined to win it this year. However, Rickie Fowler will make it really interesting.
