We appreciate the overwhelming support of this event, which showcases some of golf's greatest attributes: friendship, fellowship and fun. This is great news The patrons are back on-site, the golfers are back on the range and we should have ourselves a Masters Par-3 Contest for the first time since Follow our blog as the contest continues Here to take you through the early stages of the action is me, Matt Cradock opens in new tab T The year-old clatters the pin at the first as it just fails to drop for an ace!
Which group are you most looking forward to watching? Take a bow Louis Oosthuizen! He finishes his round at The American had a slightly embarrassing moment on Saturday afternoon opens in new tab at Augusta National when, whilst putting on the practice green, he was informed by the co-head pro J. Weaver, that he wasn't allowed to wear shorts But you need your wedges to succeed this week, and that's a big ask for Hovland.
The Masters has a strange tendency to produce aging contenders. What something do you think could surprise and find himself on the leaderboard deep into Sunday afternoon? Van Sickle: Do you mean other than guys whose names rhyme with Liger? Louis Oosthuizen is the guy who just won't go away. He was pesky in last year's majors, notably the U. Open at Torrey Pines, and he has a fine track record at Augusta.
The year he lost to Bubba Watson in a playoff, he was just unlucky. Louis can still hang. Hochberg: His initials are not T. His initials aren't P. I'm gonna be P. Sure, we don't know the situation with the back injury that that derailed him at the Match Play. But he seemed kinda chipper on Twitter the other day saying he was looking forward to the Masters. Casey has made 15 Masters starts with eight tops, five of them doubling as tops.
Ritter: Justin Rose has finished second twice and cracked the top last year after leading early. It feels like he's always in the picture here, and even though his current form isn't great, Augusta seems to be a place where he often finds it. Vara: I think this tendency used to be more prevalent when you had past champions like Jose Maria Olazabal, Bernhard Langer and Fred Couples closer to their primes, or at least within two decades of their primes, but with those guys well past their better days, there aren't that many good options in this category any longer.
Paul Casey would have been my first choice here, but back issues are unpredictable, so I'll side with Adam Scott, who is a past champion. Miceli: Louie Oosthuizen is 39, which is close enough for me to He should already be wearing a green jacket if not for a little bad luck. Vara: Abraham Ancer , who I realize just withdrew this past week at the Valero Texas Open, but as of now he's still listed in the field. If not for his withdrawal in Texas, his odds would be much lower, so we're getting some value baked into this number.
Ancer played well at the WGC Match Play a couple weeks back and he fared well at Augusta in his first two tries there. There's certainly some risk with this play given that we don't know exactly why he pulled out of the Valero, but there's risk with any long shot.
That's why we get long odds. Miceli: Gary Woodland has one major on his shelf, but since his U. Open win at Pebble Beach he's been lacking in the winner column. His game seems to be back and he is close to hitting on all cylinders.
Van Sickle: Christiaan Bezuidenhout, , is a stick. So is Seamus Power, also Sepp Straka recently won the Honda Classic and pretty much shot the apple off the Bear's head. At , I could use him to pay for new carpeting upstairs at my house. Ritter: Tyrrell Hatton is interesting at He sort of reminds me of Jon Rahm in that he burns so hot it sometimes holds him back, especially in majors.
But his tee-to-green game is a great fit for Augusta, and he's riding a stretch of good play, including a runner-up at Bay Hill. At that price, I'm in. I also like Joaquin Niemann if he stays above , as he is now. Hochberg: I don't honestly see anyone currently or longer winning the green jacket. Patrick Reed and Webb Simpson have a great history here but are so far off their games right now.
One guy I think can have a sneaky good week is Si Woo Kim, who's He's had three tops in five Masters starts. He seems to have stabilized alongside caddie Brian Vranesh. In 14 starts this season, Kim has seven tops and just missed two others. And he was in position on Sunday to make a run at winning the Valero. Hochberg: Wow, you're gonna Sophie's Choice me?
Not nice! Well, it's 12, and not because 12 in and of itself is such a great hole, though it is. I perk up that much more when the leaders get to 12 because it's the entry point to so much drama ahead — the pivotal par-5s on 13 and 15, the par-3 16th, where hopes can die see: Schauffele, Xander , the brutish 18th, where needing a par to win the Masters makes it one of the hardest holes in golf. That hole also changed everything for Tiger Woods in Van Sickle: The 10th.
To stand by the 10th green and look back uphill toward the clubhouse is to stand in awe. Not because of the gorgeous flowering trees but because from there, you see the foot drop the 10th hole makes from tee-to-green. It is remarkable. And then the 11th goes farther downhill to Amen Creek. It looks like a great place for an Olympic luge run, an even better place for an iconic golf course.
Vara: No. I love the precision needed on this surprisingly difficult short par 4. At just yards, you'd think the pros would try to muscle a driver up near the green, but that's rarely if ever the play. You absolutely have to approach this green from the correct spot or you're in trouble, which means an iron off the tee.
But again, you're not safe until you're on the green and in the correct spot. This hole has trouble written all over it regardless of the conditions. Miceli: The par th. Name a par 5 that is short, less than yards, that can scare the living bejabbers out of you and ruin a perfect day. Ritter: The easy choice is behind the 12th tee in Amen Corner — that place has a heartbeat. But I'll answer this one another way: the best spot to watch a lot of golf, especially down the stretch on Sunday, is from the grandstands left of the 15th green.
You get a clear look at players hitting their approaches to the par-5 and holing their putts. Then you look to the left, and you can watch them play the entire par-3 16th and tee off on The top couple of rows are reserved for media, and, yes, we are spoiled and, yes, you can find me there this Sunday afternoon. There can only be one: who wins the Masters and why?
Hochberg: My preseason pick was Cameron Smith. I wasn't thrilled that he won the Players because it'll be a pretty hard double to win a Players and Masters in back-to-back starts. Miceli: Jordan Spieth, no real reason. Vara: Scottie Scheffler. I know, he can't keep this up, right? Scheffler's recent run of success would go from incredible to insane if he were to win this week, but I think we might be witnessing something special with this guy.
His form is unquestioned heading into this week and his track record here is good enough to make me think he can pull it off. Scheffler has finished inside the top in his each of his two starts here and I dare say he's a better golfer now than he was during his either of his previous two starts.
I'll also throw in that none of the elite players are peaking right now either, which leaves the door wide open for his first major Van Sickle: Cameron Smith.
Rahm has come close to winning the Masters Tournament in each of his last four appearances. Spieth is one of the golfers who has accomplished a lot at the Masters over the years. Spieth has also finished second and third at the Masters two times apiece. For reference, his victory came 14 years after his previous green jacket, which goes to show that even the most legendary golfer still has some upsets left in him.
The fact of the matter is that professional sports work in mysterious ways. Devon Platana. I'm not expecting D. Actually winning the Masters usually requires excellence, and if he D. Surprise prediction -- Tony Finau finishes in the top Why is it a surprise prediction that someone with three top finishes in last four Masters starts might do so again? Well, if you haven't checked in on Big Tone recently, things have been moving in the wrong direction. In nine starts since the beginning of , Finau has finished in the top 20 just once a T19 in Hawaii in early January and missed the cut three times.
His world ranking peaked at No. My surprise prediction is this special place -- where he popped his ankle back into place and shot a 68 the next day back in -- brings a special performance from Finau. Lowest round: 63 -9 Winning score: Winner's Sunday Score: 69 -3 Who will win the Masters, and which long shots will stun the golfing world? Kyle Boone, writer Winner -- Collin Morikawa : Two-time major champion, still 25 years old, one of golf's best and most consistent ball-strikers. What's not to like here, especially at ?
His putting has improved substantially, too, and tee-to-green he's one of the best on the PGA Tour. Completing the third leg of the career grand slam at his age would put him in some rarefied air. Sleeper -- Tiger Woods : It's been well over a year since Tiger played in a real event, so I wouldn't empty the bank account here just because Woods' odds to win a Masters are this long. He could easily be back home by Saturday. And he's apparently looked sharp in practice rounds. There are probably worse, less fun ways to wager money than on the G.
Top 10 lock -- Jordan Spieth: With two top-three finishes in his last four Masters outings and five in his career, Spieth is nearly always in the mix at Augusta National, having never missed a cut. His last few events have kept the hype train largely away from him entering this year, but Spieth at Augusta National is Spieth at Augusta National -- he should be in the hunt to the end.
Star who definitely won't win -- Rory McIlroy: Rory's trajectory at Augusta National and recent play this season suggests he may be in the thick of things this weekend, which sometimes is the exact spot where he tends to underperform. Physically, there are few as gifted as him and capable to take the course, but he's never quite cracked the Masters code and this week doesn't feel like the place he does.
And going from training and practice rounds to four grinding days at Augusta is quite the chore. But Tiger's proved doubters wrong before, and I really don't think he'd rush his way back onto the biggest stage in golf only to do some sort of grand appearance to prove he's healthy. I think he wants to prove him and his game are both in a healthy spot. Smith comes to Augusta with two victories and a T4 in his past five worldwide starts. He opened with a win at Kapalua, a course that historically plays similar to Augusta National with creativity and hitting off dramatic slopes a key component to success.
He has remarked that Augusta reminds him of the Sandbelt courses he grew-up playing in Australia. Can he get a little loose off the tee with the driver? Absolutely, that's a big concern. His ability to scramble has been crucial to success here in the past and I'm expecting it to help him this week. His weapon is the driver and occasionally he gets hot with the irons.
The putter always seems to hold him back, but as we've seen before at Augusta National, it's OK to be a mediocre putter as long as you have a ceiling week with the flatstick. Sergio Garcia, Hideki Matsuyama and Will Zalatoris come to mind as recent success stories who fit this narrative. List won at Torrey Pines with a ceiling week on the greens. The past major history isn't great but a solo sixth at the PGA Championship in gives me hope he can possibly string together a decent performance this week.
Top 10 lock -- Justin Thomas: You could make the argument J. He has yet to lose strokes in the approach category over a tournament this season and his around the green game is tremendous at a course that rewards guys who can scramble. The combination of recent form and knowledge around him makes me think he's a lock to finish at the top of this field Star who definitely won't win -- Bryson DeChambeau: It feels cheap to keep picking on B. Speed training has caught up to him in the form of a lingering hip injury that's finally started to rear its ugly head.
Things got worse when, apparently in Saudi Arabia, he went and "Charlie Brown'd" himself, falling on his wrist during a ping-pong match against Garcia and Niemann. If Bryson can't go all out, then I am out on him to perform well this week, especially since he has only broken his "personal par" of 67 at Augusta National once in 20 tournament rounds.
Surprise prediction -- Rory McIlroy finishes in the top five: I think the attention on Tiger will help propel Rors to a top-five finish this week. The recent form at the mundane PGA Tour stops hasn't been great. Pretty much everyone wants to see Rory win the career grand slam. He just needs to not play himself out of it on Thursday, and I think he has a great shot to slip on the green jacket.
In six career Masters, he's finished inside the top 40 every time and inside the top 22 in each of the last five years. There's no doubt that was a disappointment as he started 4 under entering the weekend but went 4 over across his final 36 holes. To perhaps remedy the situation, he's spent the last week at Augusta National playing rounds with Tiger Woods.
You know, the five-time green jacket holder who knows Augusta like the back of his hand. It's obviously unlikely that Woods wins this week, but the knowledge gained by Thomas from walking the grounds with the best to ever do it for dozens of holes is not easily replicated. Is that perhaps a bit of a superfluous reason to pick Thomas? Is it something I'm going to discount when I already liked him as one of my favorites?
Absolutely not. Sleeper -- Webb Simpson : Granted, this is more of a longshot than a sleeper, per se, given Simpson has been playing uninspired golf this season with his last top 10 finish coming at the RSM Classic in November But there's a switch that turns on for Webb, and given the long odds he faces, it's one that is likely worth riding. Despite his only major win coming 10 years ago at the U.
The year-old has made a total of 11 appearances at the Augusta National throughout his career, placing 10th or better in five of his last six appearances. Beyond that victory, Johnson also placed second in and has placed sixth or better on two separate occasions.
Needless to say, he knows how to hang with the best that golf has to offer. Beyond his victory, Matsuyama has been as consistent as they come at the Augusta National Golf Course. The year-old has placed 19th or better in six of his last seven appearances at the tournament, which includes a trio of top performances. Matsuyama has also had tremendous success this season, being one of the few golfers to have won multiple PGA events.
What do you do with a five-time Masters winner who has not played an official event in 17 months but also might know the golf course better than anyone who has ever played it? Woods indicated that he is indeed going to tee it up on Thursday morning alongside Louis Oosthuizen and Joaquin Niemann, and the potential outcomes for him might be wider than anyone else in the field. Add it all up, and it would appear that we're in for a wild Masters week full of unexpected twists and turns but also a lot of familiar names atop the leaderboard.

Check out a full set of Masters odds provided by Caesars Sportsbook. Watch live on CBSSports. However, in the weeks leading into this one, it has felt and looked, statistically as if he was building toward a massive victory.
You could have said the same over the first few rounds at the Masters last year, too, before an 8 on the par-5 13th led to 75 and undid his chances of winning. His driving can get wayward at times so the big number is always a concern, but if the weather gets a little squirrely later this week -- and it might -- Thomas proved at the Players Championship that he has probably more game than anyone to stand up to it.
The first is that he's showed the propensity to win massive events before he dominated the Players , and the second is that he low-key plays Augusta National tremendously. Kim has four straight made cuts here, including three top 25s and a sneaky T12 in when he putted with his 3-wood for part of the tournament.
There are a handful of players at or longer Adam Scott and Russell Henley included that stand out, but Kim is my favorite of the bunch. Top 10 lock -- Brooks Koepka: There's a lot to like about Koepka this week. He's been playing good golf three top 20s in his last four starts. He's seemingly as healthy as he's been in a long time certainly healthier than last year when he was climbing up the hill on No.
And of course, the fact that he just destroys at major championships with 12 twelve! Star who definitely won't win -- Rory McIlroy: It pains me to say it, but McIlroy has been struggling with his irons more than somebody who wants to win at Augusta National should. His top record at this event is tremendous nobody has more than his six over the last 10 years , but he has yet to properly execute what he referenced earlier this week as a "negative" game plan where he plays away from trouble, takes full advantage of the par 5s and hits everything pin high.
I would love to see that happen this week, but even last week at the Texas Open, he struggled with distance control which did not engender a ton of optimism. Surprise prediction -- Tiger Woods makes the cut: Perhaps this would be considered more surprising three weeks or two months ago than it is after seeing how healthy and fit Woods looked at the beginning of the week.
However, it should still be completely astonishing if somebody who nearly lost a leg 14 months ago is playing the weekend at the most prestigious golf tournament in the world. Lowest round: 65 -7 Winner's Sunday score: 69 -3 Chip Patterson, writer Winner -- Xander Schauffele : If he stays true to form, Schauffele will be at a minimum in the mix to win and if you're consistently putting yourself within a handful of shots of the lead the odds favor the tournament breaking your way eventually.
Schauffele's last two starts at Augusta in April have been T2 and T3, coming up just short of Hideki Matsuyama last year thanks in part to splashing his tee shot on the par-3 16th. He can play this course well and I expect him to do so based on recent form, and this is great value on a player with a high floor for performance in this tournament. Sleeper -- Kevin Kisner : Seeing Kisner have a strong showing at a match play event is not a huge surprise.
The WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play has been the setting for three of Kisner's five best finishes one win, two runner-ups , but it's the other results this year that have me intrigued in his chances. He started the year with back-to-back tops in Hawaii then after a couple up-and-down weeks resurfaced as a contender at The Players, where he finished solo fourth. Contending here would admittedly be a big jump from his Masters finishes two missed Curts and no top finishes in six starts , but the Aiken, South Carolina, native and former Georgia Bulldogs golfer could quickly become a patron favorite if he strings together a couple good rounds.
Top 10 lock -- Jon Rahm: No betting favorite has won the Masters since Tiger in , but that doesn't mean we shouldn't line up with Rahm as the surest bet to finish on the first page of the leaderboard. He's got four top finishes in his last four Masters starts and went on a run earlier this year that included three top finishes in four starts. The consistency with Rahm is so strong that even if he has one awful round, you still have a chance for him to backdoor a top by going low in an early morning weekend round.
Star who definitely won't win -- Dustin Johnson: The Masters champ came back to the property five months laster and missed the cut in , and that was the first of five missed cuts across his last 20 starts. I'm not expecting D. Actually winning the Masters usually requires excellence, and if he D.
Surprise prediction -- Tony Finau finishes in the top Why is it a surprise prediction that someone with three top finishes in last four Masters starts might do so again? Well, if you haven't checked in on Big Tone recently, things have been moving in the wrong direction.
In nine starts since the beginning of , Finau has finished in the top 20 just once a T19 in Hawaii in early January and missed the cut three times. His world ranking peaked at No. My surprise prediction is this special place -- where he popped his ankle back into place and shot a 68 the next day back in -- brings a special performance from Finau.
