Seamus Power Odds Clipped To Win The Green Jacket
Seamus Power is being well backed to put in a strong performance as he prepares to make his debut at The Masters this week.
The Waterford man has catapulted himself up to number 41 in the world rankings and has posted five top-20 finishes since the turn of the year, including a run to the quarter-finals of the WGC World Matchplay in Texas on his most recent outing.
Power was a 70/1 shot on Monday morning to bag the first major of his career following his PGA Tour breakthrough last year, but his chances of becoming the first Irishman to wear the Green Jacket are now rated at 60/1 after his odds were trimmed off the back of some significant each-way support.
The support for Power arrived after BoyleSports revealed that they would be paying each-way backers down to eleven places for the first major championship of the season.
The chances of Power finishing best of the Irish at Augusta have also been clipped into 4/1 from 9/2
…with Rory McIlroy and Shane Lowry rated 20/21 and 19/10 shots respectively.
It’s a 9/1 shot for any Irish player to don the Green Jacket on Sunday evening, but Jon Rahm leads the betting at the same price as he seeks to seal a second career major following his US Open victory last year.
