McIlroy 7/1 Favourite For Masters

The first golf major of the year takes place next weekend as Rory McIlroy goes in search of a career Grand Slam at The Masters.

The 29-year-old from Northern Ireland, who has won the PGA Championship twice, the US Open and The Open, is the 7/1* favourite with Ladbrokes and BetVictor to add a fifth major title to his collection.

Dustin Johnson is the second favourite at 10/1* with the same two bookmakers and Bet365, although the world number one has only one major victory to his name having won the 2016 US Open.

Tiger Woods has been rather more successful, winning 14 majors in his illustrious career, and the 43-year-old is at 14/1* with most firms.

Justin Rose, Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler, Jon Rahm and Jordan Spieth are the other players who are shorter than 20/1 in the betting to win the famous Green Jacket.

One player to look out for at a bigger price is Louis Oosthuizen, who has been in fine form over the last six months.

The South African, who won The Open in 2010 and finished second at Augusta two years later, has finished seventh or better on seven of his last 12 starts to move back into the world’s top 20. He can be backed at 40/1* with Bet365 and Ladbrokes.
