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.
Golf Odds: Johnson, McIlroy and Spieth at 2017 MastersThe best of the best will be at the Masters Tournament in Augusta this week, and right now, nobody’s better than Dustin Johnson. The World’s No. 1-ranked golfer is +550 to win his first Masters, followed by Rory McIlroy (+700) and Jordan Spieth (+800).
Johnson is coming off three straight victories on the PGA Tour, including last week’s match play tournament in Austin, Texas. McIlroy is still seeking his first Green Jacket. Spieth, the 2015 champion, is looking for redemption after falling apart last year and losing by three strokes to little-known Danny Willett, who’s +12500 to defend his title.
