Ahhh!!! It’s US Masters week, and can’t you just smell the fragile scent of the Azaleas wafting across the Augusta National fairways? Well maybe not from Bondi, Beaumaris, or Bullamakanka but if you tune in to some of the extensive media coverage that will be available on free to air, pay TV, streaming services and elsewhere you’re certain to hear plenty of flowery commentary… at least until the final showdown sometime early Monday morning.
Five Aussie golfers will be lining up for the 85th edition of the Masters:
- 2013 Champion Adam Scott
- wanna-be-world-number-one-again & my-back-is-a-lot-better now Jason Day (2013 US PGA Champion, 2011 Masters T2)
- is-this-his-year? Marc Leishman (2013 Masters T4, 2015 Open Championship T2)
- Aussie-favourite-with-many-this-year Cameron Smith (2020 Masters T2)
- Second-chance-and-late-entrant-again Matt Jones (missed the cut first time in 2014 but at least he’s had two weeks to think about it this time)
According to an Aussie bookmaking site the favourites line up in the following order Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Jordan Spieth, Jon Rham, Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy, Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schauffele, Brooks Koepka and Collin Morikawa (love his swing). [And itis only a coincidence we stopped at the top ten because Patrick Reed is at 11.
