The Masters Tournament gets underway Thursday morning at Augusta National. Many are calling the 2018 edition the most anticipated Masters in a lifetime and who are we to disagree?
The 87-man field features amateurs, past champions and 49 of the top-50 ranked players in the world — only Brooks Koepka is missing due to injury. While picking winners of golf tournaments is no easy task, we’ve done our best to whittle the field down to 10 contenders who we believe have the best chance to slide into the green jacket on Sunday evening.
10. Sergio Garcia (30/1)
There have only been three men to ever defend their Masters titles — Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo and Tiger Woods — and this week Sergio Garcia tries to join that elite group. Garcia comes into Augusta having played some really solid golf of late, notching top-10s in his last three events — T7 at WGC-Mexico, solo 4th at Valspar and T9 at the WGC-Match Play.
