WILLIAM HILL | RORY MCILROY | JORDAN SPIETH
After eight months without a major by the time the Masters comes around, a lot of us will be logging on to our favourite betting sites to back a winner at Augusta.
And William Hill is expecting two golfers in particular to dominate on the world stage in 2016, with Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy at unbelievably short odds to be putting on the Green Jacket on Sunday, April 12.
World No.1 Spieth is as low as 5/1 to retain is title, while McIlroy, who will be aiming for the career slam, and Jason Day, looking to make it back-to-back major wins, are a mere 7/1.
As far as the rest of the majors go, William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams is under no illusions that the pair will take some beating: “Spieth and Mcllroy are the new Mickelson and Woods – 2016 is shaping up to be a great year for golf fans,” he said.
Spieth, who worst major finish in 2015 was T4 at the Open Championship, is 4/7 to make the cut in all four majors this year, while he’s 7/1 to repeat the feat of finishing in the top ten in all four.
As for achieving the grand slam, William Hill believe Spieth is more likely to do so than four-time major winner McIlroy, who failed to add to his total during a 2015 which was disrupted by an ankle ligament injury.
Spieth is 10/11 to be majorless, 6/4 to win one, 6/1 to replicate his sensational 2015 by winning two, 14/1 to win three and 100/1 to become the first player to win all four in a calendar year.
As for McIlroy, the odds are slightly longer. The Northern Irishman is 5/6 to win zero, 11/8 to win one, 13/2 to win two, 20/1 to win three and 150/1 to scoop all four.
And here are the odds for some selected others to win ONE major in 2016:
• Jason Day - 2/1
• Rickie Fowler - 9/2
• Bubba Watson - 6/1
• Dustin Johnson - 6/1
• Justin Rose - 6/1
