Who Will Win the 2024 Masters?

Augusta National entrance

The Masters golf tournament in Augusta, Georgia is taking place April 11-14.

More than likely, 2019 champion, Tiger Woods, will be the sentimental favorite to win the event. Woods has been playing sparingly, but has made comments in the past that he’d like to play at least once per month. Another favorite will be Rory McIlroy, who would complete the career grand slam with a win.

Who will win this years Masters?

As usual, many players are in top form coming into the Masters. Augusta often has a special place in the hearts of many of the players. Some more than others. Among those who seem to play well here, no matter their form coming into the event are: Hideki Matsuyama, Will Zalatoris, McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Scottie Scheffler.

With many of the players — including past champions — jumping to LIV, it will be interesting to see everyone back together again for the year’s first major tournament. LIV golfer, Joaquin Niemann has been given a special exemption into the event.

2022 champion, Scottie Scheffler, is continuing his good play with a win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational this year. McIlroy and Jon Rahm are other top players who are in great form coming into Augusta.

We’re also keeping an eye on Zalatoris, who is returning to play this year after suffering a back injury at the end of the ’23 season and has been playing well this year.

Our picks to win this years tournament are:

  1. Niemann – While the OWGR does not take into account LIV tournaments (yet), Niemann is playing stellar golf this year (which is why he was given the exemption into the event).
  2. Rory McIlroy – Another golfer at the top of his game, McIlroy is anxious to notch a Masters win and complete his career grand slam. His maturity and know-how around Augusta should prove pivotal in a victory.
  3. Zalatoris – As mentioned, he’s playing great golf this year after a shaky start. He loves Augusta and has finished in the top 6 in two of the past three Masters (with a WD last year).

Long shots:

  1. Jake Knapp – One of the most talented golfers to emerge this year, has been smooth swinging, long-hitting, Knapp. We believe he has the game to contend, even though it is his first appearance.
  2. Matthieu Pavon – The relatively unknown leader of the FedEx Cup race, Pavon will also be playing in his first Masters. He’s been at the top of the leaderboard in most of his ’24 events.
  3. Jordan Spieth – A list wouldn’t be complete without Spieth – who seems to excel at Augusta. It’s his favorite tournament and place to play.

So there you have it.

Who do you think will win this year’s event?

    I think Scheffler will be a contender. The world #1 has been putting well and won last week by 5 strokes. You can count on him in the top 20 week in and week out
