The Masters tips: 5 players you should be betting on for success at Augusta

With the Masters set to start this Thursday, Daily Star Sport is on hand to run down the five players who are favourites to win the tournament.

The golfing competition is one of the four majors each calendar year and is tipped as the most important, being the first one.

However, this year has been a rollercoaster for most sporting events and the Masters is no different.

So instead of going ahead on the first week of April, it has been postponed until November.

It will be the first time in its 86-year history that it has gone ahead in the autumn.

But who are the favourites to win the green jacket?

Bryson DeChambeau

The burly Californian is built like an NFL player but is the favourite going into the tournament this weekend.

After winning the US Open earlier this year, all eyes are on the 27-year-old to see if he can replicate his form at Augusta.

Jon Rahm

If you have not seen his spectacular hole-in-one from yesterday, go and watch it now.

The Spaniard is second in the Official World Golf Ranking and has had his best major in the Masters after finishing fourth in 2018.

Patrick Reed

Not the most popular of golfers, Captain America shot to fame after winning the 2018 Masters.

The Texan is ready to make an impact this year in Georgia and has had excellent prep, playing brilliantly over the last two months.

Justin Rose

If you have faith in the English, a flutter on Rose would be the best bet – who has finished runner-up on two occasions at Augusta.

Danny Willett broke the barrier in 2016 by becoming the first Englishman since Nick Faldo (1990) to win the tournament and this could be Rose's time to shine.

Dustin Johnson

After finishing second last year, Johnson has unfinished business at the Masters this time round.

The 36-year-old is also top of the Official World Golf Ranking and is the second-favourite behind DeChambeau to land the green jacket.

As well as these five top golfers, there are some notable mentions for the likes of Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka, Hideki Matsuyama and Rory McIlroy.
