The Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club is a “traditional unlike any other.” It is easily one of the most popular sporting events of every calendar year (it is the first major tournament of the PGA Tour season), and it is played at arguably one of the most iconic, and exclusive, golf courses in the entire world.
The 2017 Masters will be the 81st playing of the invitation-only tournament. This year, play is scheduled to begin on Thursday, April 6, and come to an end on Sunday, April 9. Danny Willett will enter the tournament as the defending champion after his stunning win in 2016 over 2015 Masters champion Jordan Spieth. However, the oddsmakers in Las Vegas don’t seem to like Willet’s chances at repeating in 2017.
The 29-year-old out of England is currently sitting at +8000 (80-1) odds, which qualifies him as an extreme long shot to win a second consecutive green jacket in 2017. With that said, here are the 13 golfers with the best odds of winning the 2017 Masters according to the oddsmakers in Vegas.
