Masters Predictions 2022 – The greatest week in golf is at last here as the best players on the planet slip upon Augusta National Golf Club for the Masters, the primary major of the year. The tomfoolery starts Thursday morning when Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Tom Watson hit stylized tee shots to begin Round 1. Underneath, we take a gander at the 2022 Masters chances and make our PGA Tour picks and forecasts to win. Notwithstanding being knock from his World No. 1 positioning, Jon Rahm stays the wagering most loved the 86th competition at Augusta. The new No. 1-positioned player, Scottie Scheffler, is tied for the third-best chances in the field. J.J. Spaun punched his pass to Augusta last week with a success at the Valero Texas Open, which will be his first time playing in quite a while.
Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Cameron Smith and Rory McIlroy are additionally among the top choices, however Johnson is the only one of that gathering to win a green coat in his vocation. Tiger Woods considered himself a “game-time choice” for the Masters in the wake of playing at Augusta last end of the week, while 2021 boss Hideki Matsuama is fighting a neck injury that constrained his withdrawal from the Valero Texas Open.
Augusta National is a notable course that will play to 7,510 yards, standard 72 this week. It’s more drawn out this year, as well, after two openings (11 and 15) were stretched by a sum of 35 yards. The greens are tricky and the fairways are inclining, seldom yielding level lies in any event, when the ball tracks down the focal point of the short grass.
Koepka was among the many enormous names who missed the cut at the 2021 Masters, alongside Dustin Johnson and McIlroy. Notwithstanding, maybe Koepka has battled at Augusta all through his vocation. He tied for seventh in 2020, tied for second in 2019 and tied for eleventh in 2017; he missed the competition in 2018 because of a wrist injury.
What’s more, as everybody knows with Koepka, he turns things up a score for the majors. It’s been all things considered an all over season up until this point, missing five cuts – including at The Players – however he made it profound at the WGC match play and tied for twelfth at the Valspar the prior week. He’s being limited a piece at +2000, and I feel better about taking him at that worth.
Fitzpatrick just has one top-20 completion at the Masters in his profession, a tie for seventh in 2016. That feels like a long time back, and he’s just completed under standard once at Augusta. In any case, he comes in playing great and is a real danger to battle this week.
He has four top-10s this season, including a T9 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. He tied for fifth at the Valspar and lost to Scheffler, the inevitable boss, in a gathering stage season finisher at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play. His balanced game fits Augusta, positioning fifth in strokes acquired (SG): Tee-to-green and twentieth in SG: Putting this season.
Youthful is making his Masters introduction, and considering every one of the complexities that accompany playing Augusta, beginners can at times battle. In any case, Will Zalatoris invalidated that last year with a tie for second. Youthful has a challenging situation to deal with on the off chance that he will imitate Zalatoris’ push for a green coat, however he has the game to get it going.
He’s long off the tee (second on visit) and is fourth in SG: Off the tee, but on the other hand he’s a decent putter (42nd in SG: Putting). For a remote chance, Young merits placing some confidence in to be in dispute on Sunday.
