So with The Masters starting tomorrow, a lot of golf fans will be getting ready to place their bets, and use their golfing knowledge to try and take a few quid off the bookies over the weekend!
I have placed bets on this famous tournament for the last few years (with varying results!) and these are my tips for this year.
I’ve gone for Phil Mickelson as my tip to win. He has had three top ten finishes out of eight events so far this season and has won the tournament on three previous occasions, including last year when his winning score of -16 was one of the best Masters scores ever recorded. He will also be looking to equal the records of Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods, who have each won the tournament on four occasions. He is the favourite at 6/1, displacing Tiger, who has been favourite every year for as long as I can remember!

I also like the look of the American, Matt Kuchar. He is having a solid enough season and is great value at 33/1.
I have also backed the following players each way – Luke Donald (25/1), Hunter Mahan (28/1), Ricky Fowler (66/1), Brandt Snedeker (125/1), and Bo Van Pelt (175/1) so if a couple of those players can finish in the top five places I’ll be very happy…
Let me know who your money is on…
