What is The Masters?

Many factors make The Masters utterly unique. The first way in which it differs from golf’s other three Majors is that it is played on the same course every single year.

Augusta National in Georgia is where the great Bobby Jones laid out the ultimate golfing test. The first tournament was played there in 1934.

The course itself is special, with manicured fairways, famous water hazards and lightning-fast greens.

Fans the world over are gripped by the action at Augusta, and millions love the challenge of betting on the tournament and trying to spot the next owner of the famous Green Jacket.

The Masters: Most popular markets

The task of identifying the winner is the most important factor in betting on The Masters.

Unlike the other majors, this is a tournament that is played on the same course each year, making it possible to factor in which players excel at Augusta – and which do not. Hideki Matsuyama, for instance, had made the top 20 five times before winning in 2021. Like 2020 winner Dustin Johnson, who has five top-10 finishes, he clearly thrives at the course and makes any future shortlist.

Among the other favourites for 2022, Jon Rahm comes in off four consecutive top-10 finishes and fresh from his debut major victory at the 2021 US Open. Jordan Spieth has a remarkable record of five top-three finishes (including one green jacket) in just eight attempts, while Rory McIlroy has six top-10 finishes in his last eight attempts as he continues to hunt the only major that has eluded him.

The message is clear; look for men who clearly relish playing at Augusta. Check the records of players who have experienced its pressure before because no Masters debutant has won the famous Green Jacket in more than 40 years.

Golf bets explained

Tournament Winner

The simplest golf bet you can make – although the size of the fields does add to the challenge. Who will win the tournament? Just decide on the player you think will record the lowest score over the four rounds and wager on them accordingly.

In-play betting on The Masters

One of the traditions at the Masters is that the opening tee shot is played by one of the grand old former champions of Augusta National. Even when that shot has been played, however, you can still enjoy The Masters betting opportunities for the next four days.

For example, if Tiger Woods makes a double bogey at the first hole, you can still back him to be on top of the leaderboard at the end of the round – or the tournament, likely at higher odds than he would have been before play began.

Golf, with its swings in fortune and pauses between shots, is a sport perfectly suited to in-play betting.

Enhanced odds

If you believe that one of the leading contenders in The Masters betting will win the Green Jacket, it’s worth shopping around. Some Masters betting sites will offer eye-catching, massively enhanced odds on a particular player in order to tempt new customers to sign up with them.

Money back as free bets

Some Masters betting sites will attract new and existing customers by using the name of a well-fancied player. In this case, the offer will be that if that particular player wins – and it’s always one of the favorites – you will get your bet refunded up to a certain limit.

Extra places

The Green Jacket is as coveted an award as there is, and it’s often hard to pick just one possible winner. For this, extra places are crucial. Rather than covering the top five, most sportsbooks pay out up to 10 places on each-way bets when The Masters comes around.

Where will the 2022 Masters be held?

The Masters

Augusta National Golf Club, Augusta, Georgia, United States

4/7/2022 - 4/10/2022

The Masters simply could not be held anywhere else. Augusta National is The Masters, and vice versa.

The course has been extended in recent years to counter the modern big hitters, but the nature of the challenge in this corner of Georgia remains the same.

Players must drive the ball long and straight to find the manicured fairways, and need pinpoint accuracy to land in exactly the right place on the super-smooth greens.

More than any other major, they need nerves of steel to block out the sheer weight of history and expectation for anyone in contention on the final day.
