Bubba Watson Slashed For Masters Hat-Trick
Bubba Watson’s WGC Match Play victory has seen a further cut in his odds to win The Masters at Augusta next week.
The Floridian was supported into 16/1 from 22/1 on Monday morning
…off the back of an emphatic 7&6 victory over Kevin Kisner in the final of the WGC Match Play in Austin, Texas on Sunday.
Watson was a 66/1 shot to win The Masters before he registered his first win in two years at the Genesis Open last month and a victory next week would see him join the likes of Gary Player, Nick Faldo and Phil Mickelson as esteemed owners of three Green Jackets.
Justin Thomas, whose Match Play hopes were ended in the semi-finals by the eventual winner, was also backed in to 10/1 from 12/1 for the Masters and now only finds 9/1 favourite Rory McIlroy ahead of him in the betting.
The list of potential Masters winners may be growing longer by the week but Bubba is a massive danger for us now having been backed at prices as big as 66/1 just last month.
