The 84th edition of the Masters Tournament was originally scheduled as the first of golf’s 4 major championships to be held in 2020 without any spectators in attendance. But unfortunately, the tournament was postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the Augusta National rescheduled the tournament to be held in November 12–15.
Tiger Woods has won the Masters on 5 occasions: 1997, 2001, 2002, 2005 and 2019 and that makes him the 2nd most successful player in tournament’s history, after Jack Nickalus who has 6 green jackets to his name. After winning the Masters in 2019, he enters this November’s rescheduled tournament as the defending champion.
With his win last year, it marked the 5th time Woods has won the tournament and it was arguably the most memorable, as it is one of the greatest comebacks in sporting history. But based on current form, Bryson DeChambeau is the favorite to win his first green jacket after he dominated at the 2020 US Open. Though Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson are also some of the other big names expected to contend.

Masters 2020 Odds
According to bet365.com, the following contenders are the favorites to win the US Masters 2020 Championship:
Bryson DeChambeau – 9.00
Dustin Johnson – 10.00
Jon Rahm – 11.00
Justin Thomas – 13.00
Rory McIlroy – 13.00
Xander Schauffele – 15.00
Brooks Koepka – 17.00
Patrick Cantlay – 26.00
Tyrrell Hatton – 29.00
Patrick Reed – 29.00
Unsurprisingly, Bryson DeChambeau’s big-hitting revolution led him to an impressive victory at the US Open, who is truly a threat for Woods’ title defense. He will be the obvious favorite heading into the tournament, whose length can remove so much difficulty and is often under-celebrated.
Though a full-strength field boasts several contenders, with Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas both in fine form heading to Georgia. As for Xander Schauffele, a runner-up last year and one of the game’s brightest talents, for whom a first major feels huge and he will also have high hopes of clinching his maiden major victory.
As for Rory McIlroy, he arrives under the radar as he attempts to complete his career Grand Slam, while Bubba Watson has shown glimpses of recapturing the spectacular form which has already seen him win twice at Augusta.
Brooks Koepka’s chances have increased dramatically, after a brilliant finish at the Houston Open and his reputation for rising to the occasion at majors is indisputable. Meanwhile, Tyrrell Hatton has been in tremendous form recently, winning the BMW PGA and he would certainly have the mentality for a title.
