The 2022 Masters is about to tee off. Though there might not seem like a clear-cut favorite to tame the famed Augusta National track this year. However, we know who the bookmakers like. 

Here’s our look at the best odds for golfers in the 2022 field. Odds courtesy of DraftKings, and are current at the time of publication, but always subject to change.

 

Marc Leishman (+5000)

Reinhold Matay/USA TODAY Sports

The talented Australian has never won a major but has come close with a tie for second at the Open Championship in 2015 and T4 at the 2013 Masters. The latter is one of three top-10 finishes at Augusta for Leishman, who tied for fifth there last season. Leishman is a relatively solid player, who has made five consecutive cuts at the Masters and could be on the first page of the leaderboard at some point throughout this tournament.

Matthew Fitzpatrick (+5000)

Matthew Fitzpatrick (+5000)

Rob Schumacher/USA TODAY Sports

For the week of March 28, England’s Fitzpatrick ranked among the world’s top 25 golfers. He made some serious international noise with a tie for seventh at the Masters in 2016 and has also played well at the U.S. Open in the past. Yet, Fitzpatrick’s best finish at Augusta since that top 10 was a T21 in 2019. Fitzpatrick is certainly talented enough to generate these types of odds, but he’ll have to prove he can really be a serious contender this year.

 

Adam Scott (+5000)

Erich Schlegel/USA TODAY Sports

Since winning the Masters in 2013, Scott has just one top-10 finish in the eight starts that followed there. That said, Scott is a veteran, knows the course well, and has the experience and intellect not to get into a message of trouble with his game. Then again, a good amount of the competitive professional golf world is good or better now, than things stood during Scott’s three-year run (2011-’13) of finishing T2, T8, and donning the green jacket.

 

Paul Casey (+5000)

Reinhold Matay/USA TODAY Sports

At age 44, Casey still might be the proper titleholder of “Best Golfer to Never Win a Major.” Casey has made 12 top-10 finishes in major play, with a career-best five coming at Augusta. Three of those happened from 2015-’17, but since then, Casey has not been all that competitive at the Masters. However, in 2021, Casey tied for fourth at the PGA Championship and went T7 at the U.S. Open. So, he apparently still has the game to factor in majors.

 

Sam Burns (+5000)

Kyle Terada/USA TODAY Sports

Getting Burns at these odds might be a bargain. It’s also worth checking on his top-5 and top-10 finishing lines for the Masters. Burns is a hot sleeper pick, who entered the Texas Open a two-time winner in 2021-22, and owner of five top-10 finishes already this season. The caveat, here, is that Burns will be making his Masters debut. And, a much-anticipated first showing it could turn out to be if Burns continues his strong play.

 

Tyrrell Hatton (+5000)

David Yeazell/USA TODAY Sports

Ranked among the world’s top 20 golfers, Hatton is a consistent play that oddsmakers tend to like in big events, even though he’s yet to win a major — and can be volatile at times. When it comes to the Masters, the Englishman’s made the cut in three of his five starts. His best finish among those rounds was last year when he came in a tie for 18th. At 30-years-old, Hatton has 10 professional victories to his name. 

 

Louis Oosthuizen (+4500)

Scott Taetsch/USA TODAY Sports

It’s been 10 years since Oosthuizen recorded his lone top-10 finish at the Masters in 13 starts. That’s when the veteran South African lost to Bubba Watson on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff in 2012. Since then, Oosthuizen’s best finish at Augusta was a tie for 12th. He went T26 there last year but followed with a tie for second at the PGA Championship, tied for second at the U.S. Open, and a T3 at the Open Championship.

 

Tiger Woods (+4000)

Michael Madrid/USA TODAY Sports

At this point, it wouldn’t be surprising if Woods’ return to competitive golf came at Augusta this year. He’s reportedly played a practice round there and is at least trying to see if it’s worth the trouble and won’t hinder his overall recovery following that horrendous auto accident in February 2021. Of course, a Tiger return at the Masters remains must-see television and will draw the attention of the most casual sports fans who like a little drama.

 

Will Zalatoris (+3500)

Michael Madrid/USA TODAY Sports

The then-little-known Zalatoris became the darling of the 2021 Masters, where he hung around the top of the leaderboard, then made a serious Sunday push before finishing second to Hideki Matsuyama. No longer an unknown commodity, Zalatoris returns to Augusta with that valuable experience and the fact he made the cut in 11 of his first 13 events on the 2021-22 season. That includes a second at January’s Farmers Insurance Open. Can’t wait to see how his sophomore effort goes.

 

10 of 25

Bryson DeChambeau (+3500)

Bryson DeChambeau (+3500)

Kyle Terada/USA TODAY Sports

After missing seven weeks due to a broken bone in his hand and a hip issue, DeChambeau, the Masters’ low amateur in 2016, was back on the course and went 0-2-1 at the recent WGC Match Play event. The methodical and often misunderstood DeChambeau, who won the 2020 U.S. Open, is hoping to be on his game, physically and mentally, when he tees off at Augusta. Though DeChambeau seems content with his recovery, even at full health, he’s had his Masters issues as a professional. In four pro appearances there, DeChambeau’s best finish at Augusta is tied for 29th.

 

Daniel Berger (+3500)

Sam Navarro/USA TODAY Sports

Not a sexy pick in terms of name, but Berger continues to plug along and might be worth throwing down some change at Augusta. He recorded four top-25 finishes in his first six matches this season, including two top 10s. At the Masters, Berger enjoyed an impressive 2016 debut, when he tied for 10th. However, he’s failed to crack the top 25 in his three appearances since and did not make the cut at Augusta last season.

 

Russell Henley (+3500)

Reinhold Matay/USA TODAY Sports

This is quite an interesting position for Henley to be in the eyes of oddsmakers. OK, he finished second at January’s Sony Open and had eight top-25 finishes in his first 12 events of the season. However, Henley has never finished in the top 10 in any of the 26 majors he’s played as a pro. He also hasn’t played the Masters since 2018, where his best finish came one year earlier — a tie for 11th. Maybe bookmakers know something golf fans don’t?

 

13 of 25

Hideki Matsuyama (+2500)

Hideki Matsuyama (+2500)

Rob Schumacher/USA TODAY Sports

With his splendid four-shot triumph at Augusta in 2021, Matsuyama also became the first Japanese-born golfer to win the Masters. It was a historic accomplishment, obviously,  in terms of international significance, but it also got the major monkey off Matsuyama’s back. Currently ranked 12th in the world, Matsuyama, who won the Sony Open in January, will try to become the first golfer since Tiger Woods in 2001 and ’02 to win back-to-back Masters titles.

 

Patrick Cantlay (+2500)

Michael Madrid/USA TODAY Sports

It’s major time. This means Cantlay’s name is again mentioned among the favorites. It really doesn’t matter what tournament we’re talking about. The reigning PGA Tour Player of the Year Cantlay is naturally generating a buzz. But when it comes to the Masters, he missed the cut at Augusta last year and his best finish there is a tie for ninth from 2019. The question now is whether Cantlay is the “Best Golfers Never to Win a Major?”

 

Xander Schauffele (+2000)

Gary A. Vasquez/USA TODAY Sports

At age 28, it’s not fair to claim the clock is ticking when it comes to Schauffele winning a major tournament. But, there are golf pundits who continue to put pressure on Schauffele to do just that. Mainly because in 18 major starts, Schauffele has finished in the top 10 nine times and inside the top 5 on six occasions. He tied for second at the Masters in 2019, and was in the mix last year when he ultimately tied for third place. Can he finally get over the top in 2022?

 

Collin Morikawa (+2000)

Kyle Terada/USA TODAY Sports

At just 25-years-old and eight major tournaments into his professional career, Morikawa is halfway to achieving golf’s grand slam. The 2020 PGA Championship winner and reigning title-holder at the Open Championship, Morikawa has finished inside the top 8 in half of the majors started. However, none came in his two appearances at the Masters. Morikawa tied for 44th there in 2020 and was T18 last season. We’ll see if he’s playing well enough to improve on those two results. 

 

Brooks Koepka (+1800)

Allen Eyestone/USA TODAY NETWORK

A four-time major champion, Koepka will garner plenty of attention, as expected, during Masters week. For a couple of reasons, notably. He’s a perennial major-tournament favorite and is looking to rebound after missing the cut at Augusta for the first time in six starts last season. In the two years prior to 2021’s disappointment, Koepka tied for second in 2019 and seventh in 2020. Now, Koepka did go on to finish inside the top 6 at each of the three remaining majors on the ’21 docket, so we think an Augusta bounce-back is likely. 

 

Jordan Spieth (+1800)

Michael Madrid/USA TODAY Sports

Spieth is another of those late-20s stars who have the potential for a strong showing at this year’s Masters. Spieth won the Masters in 2015, the same year he also was crowned U.S. Open champion. Then he struggled with his game and confidence before winning his first tournament in four years and ranking sixth on the PGA Tour Money List in 2021. We’ll see if Spieth can build on last year’s performance at Augusta, where he tied for third, to keep the momentum strong.

 

Viktor Hovland (+1800)

Reinhold Matay/USA TODAY Sports

Perhaps there was too much pressure placed on Hovland last year when it came to his expectations in major tournaments. As it turned out, Hovland’s tie for 12th at the Open Championship proved to be his best major placement for 2021. He’s got some decent odds this year at the Masters, where he was the low amateur in 2019 and finished tied for 21st in 2021. Hovland won the Dubai Desert Classic in late January to secure a victory in three straight calendar years

 

Dustin Johnson (+1600)

Erich Schlegel/USA TODAY Sports

Still not two years removed from winning the fall version of the 2020 Masters, Johnson returns to Augusta with some unfinished business after what happened at the ’21 installment. As defending champion, DJ missed the Masters cut last year — snapping a streak of five-straight top-10 finishes at the tournament. From an odds standpoint, Johnson is a nice play and just might be motivated enough from last season’s poor showing to seriously challenge for a second Masters title.

 

Rory McIlroy (+1600)

Rob Schumacher/USA TODAY Sports

All McIlroy needs to complete golf’s prestigious grand slam is a victory at the Masters. Of course, that’s much easier said than actually accomplished. McIlroy won the 2011 U.S. Open and the Open Championship in 2014, the same year he claimed his second PGA Championship. At Augusta, his best Masters finish is a fourth in 2015 But maybe the pressure to sport the green jacket is getting to McIlroy. Last season, he missed the cut at the Masters for just the second time in 13 starts there. Prior to 2021, McIlroy finished inside the top 10 six of the previous seven seasons.

Cameron Smith (+1400)

Cameron Smith (+1400)

Corey Perrine/Florida Times-Union/USA TODAY NETWORK

The man with the mullet. Boy, wouldn’t that go well with a green jacket? The 2022 calendar year has already been good to Smith, who won the Sentry Tournament of Champions in January and, even more notably, The Players Championship in mid-March. And if there’s one major that Smith seems destined to win first, it would be the Masters. Smith has played Augusta five times, tying for fifth in 2018, second in 2020, and 10th last season. He’s got the talent and confidence to get the job done at Augusta, but will this be the year it happens?

 

23 of 25

Justin Thomas (+1400)

Justin Thomas (+1400)

Jasen Vinlove/USA TODAY Sports

Thomas prepared for this year’s Masters by playing an Augusta practice round with Tiger Woods and his son, Charlie. Who knows what that will mean for Thomas and his fate at this year’s favorite. He’s among the favorites to win his second major, but Thomas hasn’t necessarily ripped up the famed track during his career. He finished fourth in 2020, but that’s his only top 10 in six Masters starts. Last year, he finished in a tie for 21st. Not much of a hunch, but Thomas should fare better this time around. 

 

24 of 25

Scottie Scheffler (+1200)

Scottie Scheffler (+1200)

Michael Madrid/USA TODAY Sports

The hype is strong with this one. The current “It” golfer on the PGA Tour, Scheffler won for the third time in a five-start span after outlasting the field in the WGC Match Play event on March 27. Simply put, Scheffler has played remarkable golf, making 11 of his first 12 cuts with his first three career wins, a second, and six overall top-10 finishes. Though he’s finished tied for 19 and 18th in each of the last two Masters, respectively, Scheffler is certainly the guy to watch at Augusta in 2022.

 

Jon Rahm (+800)

Michael Madrid/USA TODAY Sports

Rahm might no longer be the No. 1 golfer in the world, but he’s still the betting favorite when it comes to wagering on the 2022 Masters field. That’s not really a surprise considering Rahm has finished fourth, tied for ninth, tied for seventh, and tied for fifth, respectively, in each of his last four stops at Augusta. Rahm, the 2021 U.S. Open champion also placed no worse than T8 at any major in 2021. Is this the year Rahm finally dons the green jacket?
