2020 Masters: Oddsmakers like Bryson DeChambeau

After his 6-stroke victory at the U.S. Open, the long-driving American rates as the betting favorite 7 weeks before the Masters

10-1: Odds for favorite Bryson DeChambeau to win the Masters, according to DeChambeau, the long-driving American who posted a runaway six-stroke victory last week at the U.S. Open for his first major championship, is bidding to become the first back-to-back major winner since Brooks Koepka won the U.S. Open and the PGA in 2018. Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm were listed as co-No. 2 choices, at 12-1. McIlroy lacks only a Masters victory for the career Grand Slam. Johnson, the PGA Tour’s recent player of the year, is looking for his second major title. Rahm has yet to win one of golf’s top prizes. Americans Justin Thomas and Xander Schauffele were 14-1 picks. Koepka, who did not play in the U.S. Open because of ongoing problems with his left knee, was listed at 16-1. PGA winner Collin Morikawa was rated as a 20-1 choice. Tiger Woods, the defending champion and a four-time Masters winner, was listed at 25-1. In early July, DeChambeau soared to the top of the oddsmakers' picks to win the Masters when he won the PGA Tour's Rocket Mortgage Classic. The Masters will be played Nov. 12-15 at Augusta (Ga.) National Golf Club.
