The NCAA Tournament is over and the excitement of baseball’s Opening Day has come and gone. So what makes this week special? The Masters. It’s relatively easy to sniff out the most likely winners, but what about who’s riding the hot hand? The following golfers are on a roll right now and might carry that momentum into Augusta.
It’s no secret Johnson is the betting favorite mostly because of his recent play. He leads the Fedex Cup Standings despite playing in only seven events, which is three fewer than anyone else in the top five.
Since taking the U.S. Open last year, Johnson has been on a roll, winning three straight tournaments this season. The victories came at the Genesis Open in February, and at both the WGC Championship and Match Play in March.
While Johnson has never won a Green Jacket, he has been in the top ten in each of the last two years, finishing tied for fourth in 2016.
As steady as they come, Rose has hit the top ten in 12 different majors over the years, and four of the last eight including back-to-back Masters. His highest finish at Augusta was in 2015 when he tied for second. While he’s looking for his first Green Jacket, he does have a major victory. Rose won the U.S. Open in 2013.
In seven PGA tour events this season, Rose has been in the top ten three times. He finished 15th last week in Houston, and 13th last month at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
Fowler has one tour win so far this season, at the Honda Classic in February. He’s played consistent golf, finishing in the top 25 in six of seven tournaments and in the top ten four times. He placed third last week in Houston after finishing 12th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and 16th in the WGC Mexico Championship.
Fowler was fifth at the Masters in 2014, 12th in 2015, and missed the cut last year.
Rahm has come out of no where this season. In five of the ten tour events he has played, he’s finished in the top ten in half of them. Less than a year since his graduation from Arizona State, the young Spaniard is en fuego, literally on fire. After winning the Farmer’s Insurance Open in late January, Rahm finished 16th at the Phoenix Open, and managed a top five standing in four straight tournaments, including coming up short against Dustin Johnson for a second pace finish at the WGC Match Play. He finished 10th in Houston last week. This is his first Masters.
The 24-year-old is the only player other than Johnson to have three tour victories this season. He’s third in the points standings, but hasn’t won since January. Thomas finished fifth at the WGC Mexico Championship, missed the cut at the Valspar Championship in March, and was a non-factor in the WGC Match Play event. He made the cut during his only Masters, finishing 39th last year. He is one of just seven players in history to shoot 59 during a tour event.
