The European Tour saw another short-priced winner last weekend, as 8/1 second favourite Dustin Johnson claimed victory at the inaugural Saudi International.
Johnson saw off the challenge of Li Haotong to win by two shots at the Royal Greens Golf and Country Club on the Red Sea, following on from Bryson DeChambeau’s 10/1 success in Dubai.
It was a first win of 2019 for Johnson, who has won at least three tournaments in each of the last three calendar years. His previous success came at the RBC Canadian Open last July.
The world number three is one of four 12/1* joint-favourites for April’s Masters Tournament, the first golf major of the season.
Johnson’s only major win came at the US Open in 2016, although he has finished in the top 10 on each of his last three visits to Augusta. Indeed, he has placed in the top 10 on eight of his last 15 starts in the majors.
Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth are the other market leaders in the Masters betting, with Tiger Woods, Justin Thomas and Brooks Koepka also prominent in a wide-open betting market.
