Finally, the week we have all been waiting for has arrived! That's right, it's Masters Week. And as always there are so many stories taking shape, most notably that of Tiger Wood's return to competitive golf after a two month lay off. But one thing is for sure, no matter who is in the mix on Sunday afternoon, it's going to be a great week and an amazing tournament. So without further delay we give you our fantasy picks for the Masters Tournament.
1. Jordan Spieth
Currently ranked #4 in the World Golf Rakings, Jordan Spieth is our top pick to win at Augusta National this week.
Spieth is rapidly proving himself to be one of the most consistent performers on the PGA Tour. This is reflected in his #2 position in the FedEx Cup Standings. One thing is for sure, this young man has no shortage of confidence when it comes to the big stage. If you remember, he had a really good chance to win here last year, but stumbled down the stretch and finished in a tie for 2nd place. Look for him to be in the mix on Sunday.
2. Jason Day
Currently ranked just one spot behind Mr. Spieth on the WGR, is Jason Day and our number two pick this week.
A player with a couple of Top-5 finishes in this event, Day has been consistently one of the best players in the game. He posses a strong track record at Augusta National, and one might think, it's only matter of time before this guy breaks out and wins a bunch of major championships.
3. Adam Scott
We swear that we did not pick these players base upon their order in the WGR, but for our third pick we select Adam Scott.
Adam is the only past champion selection on our list. But when it comes to major titles you have to think that this guy will win a few more before he hangs up his spikes. Maybe this week he will add another Green Jacket to his collection.
4. Matt Kuchar
Matt Kuchar is currently ranked #16 in the WGR.
Kuchar has been Mr. Steady on Tour by not having misses a cut all season long. There is a very short list of players that can say that. But the thing I most like about Kuchar is that he boasts a very strong record at Augusta. In fact, Kuchar has not finished outside of the Top-10 at this event since 2011. Look for him to be in the conversation on Sunday afternoon.
5. Lee Westwood
Lee Westwood is our dark horse pick this week.
I can't help but pick Lee this week because of his impressive record in this event. It seems like his name is on the leaderboard almost every year in this tournament. In fact, over the past five years, Lee has posted three Top-5 finishes and never finished outside of the Top-20 in this event. I still believe that this guy is too good to go his entire career without ever winning a major championship. Maybe this is finally his week to break through.
all these picks have been playing really good this year! On my list I would add Bubba Watson and Dustin Johnson
