The biggest tournament in golf is still a few months away, but you can already check out the betting favorites to win the 2017 Masters with Pinnacle Sports.
Since 1934, the Masters Tournament has been considered to be the biggest tournament in golf. It takes place over 4 days, and 72 holes. The 2017 Masters is set to be held at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, and some of the best players in the world are set to take part. Let’s take a look at two of the betting favorites to win.
Rory McIlroy: 9.2
Northern-Ireland’s Rory McIlroy is considered by most golf experts to be the best player in the world at the moment. He has won some of the biggest tournament in the world, and recently made UK gambling news by winning the FedEx Cup in 2016.
McIlroy’s participation has already been confirmed, and he is unsurprisingly one of the betting favorites to win the 2017 Masters. At just 27 years of age, Rory still has time to improve his skill set, but he is without a doubt one of the most talented players to emerge in the past century.
Pinnacle Sports gives McIlroy the best odds to win at 9.2. He is facing off against a number of other top players, but at this point Rory might be the safest Masters golf bet you can make.
Jordan Spieth: 9.4
Speaking of golf talents, Jordan Spieth has emerged as one of the world’s best players over the past 3 years. A professional for just over 3 years, Spieth has already accumulated 8 PGA wins, and was named in the top 100 most influential people by TIME Magazine.
Spieth is only 23 years old, and is already one of the betting favorites to win the 2017 Masters according to most online sportsbooks in the UK. He is ahead of some of the most established names in the sport such as Jason Day, Tiger Woods, and Phil Mickelson. If he can win this year’s Masters, he will likely go down as the best young player in the past decade.
As we stated before, Spieth is one of the top picks to win the 2017 Masters with odds of 9.4. Anyone looking to bet on the 2017 Masters should consider picking this young phenom from Texas.
