In-Form Kuchar 66/1 For Masters

Matt Kuchar came on strong over the closing stretch to win the Sony Open and land his second title in four starts.

The American, who won the Mayakoba Classic in November, overcame the challenge of our 66/1 tip Andrew Putnam, who had to settle for finishing in second, four shots behind the winner.

Kuchar made a poor start to his final round with three bogeys in his first five holes, but recovered to make birdie on 5 on the back 9. After opening with two rounds of 63, he posted back-to-back scores of 66 over the weekend, moving up to 22nd in the world rankings as a result.

The 40-year-old has long been one of the PGA Tour’s most consistent performers and he has been in and around the world’s top 20 for the best part of a decade.

However, he doesn’t have a major title to show for his efforts. The nearest he came was when he finished second to Jordan Spieth at the 2017 Open Championship, but he has enjoyed most success at The Masters.

He has posted four top 10s in his last seven visits to Augusta, including three top fives, while since 2010 he has finished lower than 30th only once.

April’s tournament looks to be his best chance of landing that elusive major title this year and he is a best price of 66/1* with Ladbrokes and Coral.
