Jordan Spieth’s odds for April’s Masters Tournament are on the move after he dominated the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to win his ninth PGA Tour title by four shots.
The 23-year-old is the youngest player since Tiger Woods to reach that landmark – and from a best price of 8/1 last week, Spieth is now 6/1 with most firms to win his second green jacket, with Coral still offering 7s for the time being.
The 2015 Masters champion, who allowed Danny Willett to pinch the green jacket last season, has been building up to something special over the opening weeks of 2017, finishing third in each of the two events in Hawaii and 9th in Phoenix, and everything clicked into place in California – including 2 rounds of 65.
The current World no. 6 has finished in the top four at 5 of the last 8 Majors and will be desperate to atone for his collapse at Augusta last year – where he held a 5-shot lead going to the back nine on Sunday before dropping 6 shots to par, including a quadruple-bogey on the 12th hole, where he famously hit two balls into Rae’s Creek.
