Who Will Win The 2013 Masters and Why

Who Will Win The 2013 Masters and Why

Who Will Triumph In The Year's First Major

Not to blow my trumpet too much, but my pre-season estimations have got off to a flying start, Tiger to win 2 majors, (like his chances ) Rory doesn’t win a major (like those chances even more), Donald falls out of top 5 – long time coming, but will undoubtedly happen.

So I thought I’d give the good friends of PG the chance to line their pockets this year, and put their money in the right place for the Masters.

I might be wrong, but I don’t think the winner will come from a player outside the world’s top 25:

Tiger Woods
Rory McIlroy
Justin Rose
Luke Donald
Brandt Snedeker
Louis Oosthuizen
Adam Scott
Steve Stricker
Matt Kuchar
Phil Mickleson
Ian Poulter
Lee Westwood
Bubba Watson
Keegan Bradley
Graeme McDowell
Sergio Garcia
Charl Schwartzel
Jason Duffner
Webb Simpson
Dustin Johnson
Peter Hanson
Hunter Mahan
Nick Watney
Ernie Els
Bo Van Pelt

 

SO, I’m firstly taking out:

Luke Donald, Steve Stricker, Ian Poulter, Jason Duffner, Bo Van Pelt and Graeme McDowell – None of these players have the firepower.

 

Westwood has to go, if he hasn’t sorted his short game woes by now, he never will. Adam Scott has scar tissue from the Open, not to mention that he’s trying different putting styles.

 

 

 

Sergio, although settling with the claw, just doesn’t have the touch required on those greens, and Ernie may have won the Open, but I don’t like the look of the shaky stroke he puts on the ball with his long putter.

 

 

 

Bubba will be too busy doing past champion chores to have his head in the game, so he has to go too.

 

 

 

Webb Simpson, Peter Hanson and Rory McIlroy have all hit poor form, so they are being removed as well.

 

 

As good as Watneys & Rose’s games are for Augusta, I’m afraid I question their bottle. Hunter Mahan doesn’t have a natural feel for high, soft shots around those greens, with the grain cutting against the players, a slight miss hit is severely punished. Charl Schwartzel caught fire early in the season, history tells us this level of play is not sustained for long enough to bring him to victory.

 

So, that leaves:

Tiger Woods

Brandt Snedeker

Louis Oosthuizen

Matt Kuchar

Phil Mickleson

Keegan Bradley

Dustin Johnson

 

 

I can’t think of a single reason why the winner will come outside of these players, you can choose, but if someone gave me £100, I’d have £50 on a Tiger win, and £25 EW on Snedeker.
