No. 3 Webb Simpson +2800

Currently ranked 35th in the FedEx standings, but a stellar eighth in the official golf world rankings, 35-year-old Webb Simpson is looking great to me heading into Augusta. In 14 events last season, Simpson won the Waste Management Open and RBC Heritage while also recording one second place finish, one third place finish and eight Top-10 finishes while making the cut 12 times. Simpson finished T8 at the US Open in September and T13 at the Shriners Open in early October. Simpson also tied for fifth at last year’s Masters while finishing T28 at Augusta in 2015, T29 in 2016 and T20 in 2018. Simpson has five Top-50 finishes at the Masters in eight appearances and is playing extremely well, even if he is flying a bit under the radar. Simpson is currently seventh in scoring average (68.3), fifth in sand save percentage. Maybe it’s me, but I love Simpson’s value as a +2800 pick to win the 2020 Masters and I believe he’s one of the top three golfers with a chance to claim this year’s green jacket.

No. 2 Jon Rahm +1200

Currently 59t in the FedEx standings, but a stellar second in the official golf world rankings, 25-year-old Jon Rahm is ranked seventh in driving distance, 16th in eagles per hole and 24th in scoring average (69.6).  In 15 events last season, the Spaniard won the Memorial Tournament and BMW Championship while also recording one second place finish, one third place finish and eight Top-10 finishes. Rahm finished T23 at the US Open and T17 in the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek. In three career appearances at Augusta, Rahm has finished T27 in 2017, fourth in 2018 and T9 a year ago. Make no mistake about it, this could be the year that Rahm wins his first major.

No. 1 Xander Schauffele +2000

Currently eighth in the FedEx rankings and seventh in the official golf world rankings, the 26-year-old Schauffele is ranked fourth in scoring average (67.5), an identical fourth in sand save percentage and 32nd in birdie average (4.50). In 18 events last season, the sweet-swinging Californian recorded three second place finishes, one third place finish, seven Top-10 finishes and 16 Top-25 finishes. More importantly, when it comes to performing in majors, Schauffele shows up in a big way. In 13 majors appearances, Schauffele has recorded a stupendous nine Top-10 finishes and five Top-5 finishes. Schauffele finished fifth in this year’s US Open while also finishing T2 in last year’s Masters and second in the recently completed CJ Cup. For me, the still-blossoming star is the top pick to win the 2020 Masters!

If you were expecting someone like world No. 1 Dustin Johnson, three-time major winner Brooks Koepka or the red-hot Bryson DeChambeau to make this list of top three favorites, sorry to disappoint, but Simpson, Rahm and Schauffele are my top three picks to get it done at August this year. Each player has experience in majors and has performed well in the Masters in at least one previous appearance at Augusta. Now, head on over to the MyBookie sportsbook and place your wager.
