It’s called “a tradition unlike any other”. In 2020, the Masters will also be unlike any other Masters.
This year the tournament will be played in November, seven months after its traditional April setting. There will also be no spectators on the grounds at Augusta National.
Also, for the first two rounds, groups will be teeing off the 1st and 10th holes. This change is necessary due to the limited daylight this time of year.
Based on these changes, who are the favorites to win The Masters in 2020? Nearly all of the big names will be in the field, so there are lots to choose from.
However, the favorites don’t always win the Masters. In fact, there have been quite a few surprises in the recent past. However, we can learn a lot about who might win by investigating the numbers. By combining our Masters statistical database (below) and the odds from PointsBet, here are 17 players who are among the favorites to capture the green jacket this November.
Bryson DeChambeau – PointsBet Odds +900
3 Starts | 3 Cuts Made | 0 Wins | 0 Top 10s | 72.3 Scoring Avg | $124,400 earnings
The reigning U.S. Open champion has spent the past four weeks “boosting up” in the gym and on the range in Texas in preparation for a shot at the green jacket. Bryson has played three times at Augusta with one top 25 and three cuts made. DeChambeau was the first-round leader in 2019, so he’s definitely capable of going low.
Jon Rahm – PointsBet Odds +1000
3 Starts | 3 Cuts Made | 0 Wins | 2 Top 10s | 70.5 Scoring Avg | $916,600 earnings
Sporting the 4th best lifetime scoring average at Augusta (70.5) among players in the field, Jon Rahm goes into the Masters playing exceptional golf. He’s played in the tournament three times and has posted T4 and T9 the last two seasons. Rahm also has scored in the 60s in 5 of his last 8 rounds at the Masters.

Rory McIlroy – PointsBet Odds +1300
11 Starts | 10 Cuts Made | 0 Wins | 5 Top 10s | 71.5 Scoring Avg | $2,080,521 earnings
Rory has only missed the cut once in 11 starts at the Masters, including 9 Top 25s. However, he’s yet to win a green jacket and that pressure only escalates year after year. McIlroy’s remarkable consistency has provided him plenty of chances to win and he should continue to be a force now at 31 years old.

Tiger Woods – PointsBet Odds +3300
22 Starts | 21 Cuts Made | 5 Wins | 14 Top 10s | 70.8 Scoring Avg | $19,494,136 earnings
The five-time, and defending champion has a career scoring average of 70.8 and over $9 million earned in 22 starts at the Masters. Woods also has 18 finishes within the top 25, which makes him a force every time he drives down Magnolia Lane. Woods’ surgically repaired back prefers warmer temperatures, so the thermometer could provide the most important number for Tiger this year in November. [optin-monster slug=”zqnnlwi4imok0rybgai1″]
Phil Mickelson – PointsBet Odds +6000
27 Starts | 24 Cuts Made | 3 Wins | 15 Top 10s | 71.3 Scoring Avg | $8,018,037 earnings
With two wins on the Champions Tour, Phil Mickelson has shown he still has the ability to close out tournaments. The competition and the golf course should be at another level at the 2020 Masters. Phil has played 102 rounds in competition at August and has three green jackets to show for it, his last coming in 2010. He finished T18 last year and T36 in 2018.[optin-monster slug=”t1pubzp8yjfcychbik6t”]

Brooks Koepka is 30 years old but has only competed four times in the Masters. He finished T2 last year, so there’s no question he’s a threat to win… when healthy. Brooks has finished in the top 25 75% of the time at Augusta, proving he has the game to stay in the mix consistently.

Schauffele is the same age (27) as Justin Thomas and has earned $880,000 in his two starts at the Masters. Xander finished T2 with Brooks last year and shown good form recently on the PGA Tour.

9 Starts | 8 Cuts Made | 0 Wins | 3 Top 10s | 71.5 Scoring Avg | $2,395,300 earnings

Fowler finished second in 2018 and T9 last year at The Masters.[optin-monster slug=”dkhmrovvgj3plmvpnkeo”]
