A tradition unlike any other, the Masters. The most prestigious trophy of them all, the green jacket, awaits another winner to be crowned in 2017. The tournament is full of favorites, sleepers, and previous champions. The annual April tournament is an event in which millions of people bet on 94 different golfers. I will breakdown the favorites and give you my sleeper picks for the tournament that begins on Thursday morning.
Here are my bold predictions for the 2017 Masters tournament: Jordan Spieth makes a hole in one on hole 12, Phil Mickelson chips in from 4 bunkers, and off-the-tee wunderkind Dustin Johnson hits a 435 yard drive;Brad Dalke (Am.) makes Sunday’s final pairing and Bubba Watson gets into a fight with a spectator. Just kidding. Although those don’t seem too far fetched at some moments, below are my real predictions for the 2017 Masters tournament.
Jordan Spieth (Won in 2015)
Dustin Johnson (T4 in 2016)
Rory Mcilroy (4th in 2015)
Hideki Matsuyama (5th in 2015)
Justin Rose (T2 in 2015)
The Forest Scout pick: Dustin Johnson
Jon Rahm (1 career PGA tour win)
Thomas Pieters ( Played in Ryder Cup last year)
Tyrrell Hatton (2 top 10’s in last 2 majors)
Alex Noren (Age 34, currently ranked 10 in the world)
The Forest Scout pick: Tyrrell Hatton
Justin Thomas (3 career professional wins)
Emiliano Grillo (T17 2016)
Daniel Berger (T10 2016)
Sergio Garcia (one of the best players to never win a major, and he’s been very close)
The Forest Scout pick: Emiliano Grillo
