It’s time for the event of the year for golfing fans as we approach the starting day for The Masters. After two years of smaller audiences and a cut-down event, fans of the event are looking forward to 2022 being a return to the former glory of the event and as such, are expecting big things from their favourite golfing stars. As with any big sporting event there is plenty of speculation in the build-up to opening day – who will take part, will anyone drop out and what will happen during the event. Betway Golf offer various betting odds and even have had plenty of fun with the Brighton and Hove Albion golfing players as this video shows.
What To Expect from This Year’s Masters
Much like any big sporting event one thing you can expect from this year’s Masters is the unexpected. There are always surprise winners and losers – it is part of what adds to the fun and excitement of any tournament like this. We do know that there are a number of injured players who fans feel may or may not take part in the tournament this year – Tiger Woods with his broken leg injury and Hideki Matsuyama with his ongoing hip injury are both questionable as to whether they will take part.
That said, The Masters is a big deal, and they most certainly won’t want to back out of taking part unless they have to. We do know that Phil Mickelson is missing his first Masters' tournament since 1995; following a reasonably public falling out with PGA Tour.
Favourites To Win The Masters 2022
Although betting odds are subject to change there are a number of players that appear consistently at the top of the list of players tipped to win. Of course, if you’re someone that wants to place a bet then you should most definitely keep an eye on the betting odds and golfing news to make sure that you’re placing the best possible bet at the best possible time.
Justin Thomas – After a successful 2020 many had their hopes pinned on Thomas last year, however, he failed to repeat his success. That said, he’s had some amazing results in various tournaments in the lead up to The Masters so many feel that 2022 could be the year that he gets his first green jacket.
Dustin Johnson – Johnson has made limited appearances this year but has shined in the few tournaments that he has played in so far this year. His success so far has many believing that the former world number 1 could do really well at this year’s Masters.
Hideki Matsuyama – Despite having an ongoing hip injury many believe that Matsuyama is perfectly capable of repeating his success from last year. We just need to wait and see if he actually makes it to taking part in the tournament, but if he does then he remains one of the firm favourites to do well this year.
