Review of the past year
Scottie Scheffler is the defending champion of the 2022 Masters tournament. He won the tournament by three shots over Rory McIlroy with a final score of 10-278.
Last year, Scheffler ended an outstanding 56-day golf streak with his fourth Masters win. Despite a 4 putt on the last hole, he finished the final round with a score of 1 under 71.
Scheffler had taken the lead with Cameron Smith when he chipped for a birdie on the third hole while Smith bogeyed. No other player came close to catching Scheffler for the rest of the tournament.
Rory McIlroy hit an impressive final round, sinking a bunker shot for a birdie on the 18th hole and tying the record for the lowest final round in the Masters with a score of 64.
Who are the Masters favorites?
Scheffler and McIlroy (+700) are the co-betting favorites at FOX bet. Jon Rahm (+900), number 2 in the world golf rankings, is the third choice.
What are the odds of Tiger Woods winning the Masters?
Last year, Tiger Woods scored 13 over par and finished 47th, the worst result of his pro career at Augusta. In 2023, Woods is hoping to bounce back and his odds are currently up +6600 (bet $10 to win $670 total) everything to win.
What’s new in the 2023 course?
A change was made to the tee of the par-5 13, resulting in an extension of about 35 yards, now measuring 545 yards. As a result, players are expected to need a 4-iron or higher club to hit the green in two shots.

We consulted for a betting expert’s perspective on the Masters FOX bet Trading Operations Senior Manager Dylan Brosman.
Brossman delivered, just like a golfer who rips his drive down the middle of the fairway on the 18th hole. Not only does Brossman make a pick for the next golfer to wear the green jacket, he also shares his thoughts on Tiger Woods’ odds and offers a variety of tips to suit all bettors’ tastes.
“The weather will certainly play a role this week as rain is forecast for much of the tournament; cold, wet conditions and extensive tee boxes will favor long hitters, particularly over the weekend,” said Brossman. “In addition to distance off the tee, I’m also looking for golfers who have great feel on the greens, are in great shape and have had success at Augusta.”
Speaking of success, Tiger owns five Green Jackets, but Brossman pointed out that Woods has only played one tournament this season.
“Nevertheless, Tiger certainly passed the ‘eye test’ on The Genesis in February, made the cut and placed 45th,” Brossman explained. “Tiger was noticeably limping at times and Augusta is not an easy route to walk four days straight, especially when temperatures drop into the 50s over the weekend.
“I expect Tiger’s experience and willpower to get him through the cut, but to expect much more than Tiger at this stage in his career is asking a lot. I will do my best to have him prove me wrong.”
Brossman likes 2015 Masters Champion Jordan Spieth. who is good value at +1600.
“It’s tempting to choose one of the ‘Big Three’ – Rory McIlroy, Scottie Scheffler, Jon Rahm – but their odds are too slim for me to justify them here.”
Brossman said Spieth’s short game — he placed seventh for 150-yard approach accuracy — should have him in contention over the weekend.
“Spieth is a magician around the greens, has an impressive CV with Augusta, And Has been playing great golf lately – he’s finished 4th, 19th, 3rd and 31st in his last four PGA events,” said Brossman. “It’s been eight years since Spieth donned the green jacket, but the drought is ending.”
LONGER SHOT PICKS
“Viktor Hovland is eighth in shots from the tee and has plenty of power to go around Augusta in wet conditions. The weakest area of Hovland’s game is undoubtedly his short game, but his scrambling numbers have improved quite a bit, moving up to 29th from last season’s 99th spot. Hovland has experience at the Masters (tie 27th, tied 21st, tied 32.), but still has to crack the top 20. “
Long hitter Will Zalatoris has finished in the top 10 in six of his last eight majors, finished second in 2021 and finished sixth in Augusta last year.
“Putting was Zatoris’ downfall for much of his early career, but he clearly likes the greens at Augusta,” Brossman noted. “His current form hasn’t been overly impressive – tied 59th, 73rd, tied 53rd – so I’m not confident he’ll continue his top 10 streak at the Masters, but I like his chances of being in the top 20 to stay.”
For his high-risk, high-reward pick, Brossman likes Chilean Mito Pereira, who joined LIV in February. Pereira finished fourth, tied 45th, and tied 18th in three PGA Tour events in October after taking a three-shot lead in the final round of the 2022 PGA Championship but faltering on the final hole and denying the took third place.
“His success has continued on the competitive tour and boasts the fourth-best average ending finish on LIV, including two top 10s,” Brossman said. “Mito is clearly in great shape but this will also be his first appearance at the Masters.
