Dustin Johnson did just about everything on the PGA Tour last year. But the reigning Player of the Year has yet to win the Big One: the Masters Tournament at Augusta National. Johnson enters this year’s event as the +550 favorite, followed by Rory McIlroy at +700 and Jordan Spieth at +800.
Johnson finished in a fourth-place tie at Augusta last year before taking down his first major at the US Open. His 2017 campaign is already off to a rolling start. Johnson claimed the No. 1 spot in the World Rankings with a win at the Genesis Open, then he won back-to-back World Golf Championships events – first in Mexico, then the match play tournament in Austin, Texas.
McIlroy has yet to wear the Green Jacket, either, but the former World’s No. 1 has won all the other majors. His best result at Augusta was fourth place in 2015. That’s the year Spieth burst upon the scene and won both the Masters and the US Open. Spieth was also in control of last year’s Masters until falling apart on the back nine and losing to little-known Danny Willett by three strokes. Willett is a +12500 outsider to defend his title.
