Predicted British Winner
The past is often a good barometer for what will happen in future – and this theory certainly holds true with the Masters. We’ve analysed the performance statistics of every Masters winner over the last 85 years and these are the 10 British golfers who are most likely to win this year’s tournament, according to our data.
Average stats of a Masters champion
These predictions are based on average drive, fairways hit, GIR and number of putts.
"One of these days Rory McIlroy will win the Masters and it wouldn’t surprise me if it was this year. There’s obviously going to be some added pressure on him because he’s looking to complete his Grand Slam but he’s experienced in big matches and his game’s in good shape.
"Justin Rose has a faultless game which is ideally suited to Augusta. He’s good off the tee, he’s a great putter, he’s got the right temperament. He was unlucky in the playoff against Sergio Garcia in 2017 and he’d be one of my favourites to win this year.
"Tommy Fleetwood is definitely good enough to win a Major. He was runner-up at the US Open last year and he plays well on the big occasions. At 25/1, he’s a very decent bet to win the Masters.
"We’re lucky to have such a talented pool of British golfers at the moment and I’m looking forward to seeing how they perform on the biggest stage."
