Golf betting tradition is at its zenith for this prestigious event that golfers want to win more than any other tournament on the online golf betting professional tour.
The Masters begins on Thursday morning and runs through Sunday with coverage on SIRIUS XM, ESPN, and CBS. The Masters is one of four “major” tournaments on the PGA Tour and has a total of 600 FedExCup points at stake as well as a purse of $7.5 million with a winning share of $1.4 million.
But more than money or points, The Masters has something that no other golf tournament can offer…the coveted Green Jacket that goes to the winner. Have your Sports Gambling account open and ready for action on golf’s greatest event.
Phil Mickelson beat the golf odds last year to take the Green Jacket with Lee Westwood finishing 3 strokes behind. Mickelson has been inconsistent since that win but Augusta may bring out his best yet again.
The Masters is an invitational tournament with 19 criteria that the committee takes into account when selecting the field. All past winners of The Masters as well as recent champions of golf’s three other major tournaments are eligible for an invite.
Tiger Woods is of course still a big name that will draw plenty of attention from the media and patrons at Augusta but the fact remains that his play has been in decline over the past two years and he last beat t golf lines to win The Masters in 2005.
Despite all of his problems and injuries and change of swing Woods has not finished lower than 6 place in The Masters in the past 5 tournaments at Augusta.
Germany’s Martin Kaymer is the top ranked player in the world but still has a lot to learn about golf history and tradition as he said that The Masters is just another golf tournament. Perhaps it was out of frustration as he has failed to make the cut in each of his first three trips to Augusta.
While Kaymer will be among the golf betting favorites to win the Green Jacket many fans will be rooting against him for what they perceive to be an ignorant and classless remark about a “Tradition unlike any other.”
