He’s won two of the last three majors, and three of the last seven – but even that isn’t enough to make Brooks Koepka the favourite for the 2019 Masters.
The world No.2 is currently priced as high as 20/1 with some bookmakers for the next major championship, taking place as is customary at Augusta National next April.
Jordan Spieth, who has a career record of T2-1-T11-4 at the Masters, is the favourite to add to his Green Jacket collection. You won’t currently find him priced more enticingly than 9/1 with the leading British bookies.
Career grand slam chasing Rory McIlroy is the next favourite, followed by world No.1 Dustin Johnson, Tiger Woods and Justin Thomas.
Jon Rahm and Rickie Fowler also have shorter odds than Koepka.
That could possibly be explained by the Floridian’s less-than-remarkable Masters record.
The 28-year-old has played in the first men’s major of the season only three times and, whilst he has made the cut all three times, he has never cracked the top ten. A tie for 11th this year is the best he has managed.
After his US PGA win, Koepka admitted his Masters form isn’t the best. “I need to figure out Augusta a little bit,” he said. “I haven't quite had the results there that I've had elsewhere.”
Still, though – 20/1 for a man who’s won two of the last three majors? We’ll take a bit of that!
