Bryson DeChambeau is looks to be the front-running favorite for the Masters. Bryson, of course, the U.S. Open champion, has not actually finished within the top 25 in his last two Masters appearances. According to CBS Sports, DeCambeau’s inaccuracy off the tee box is a big concern he enters the 2020 Masters with a 52.68 driving accuracy percentage, which is 205th on the entire PGA Tour.
Coming off of a disappointing performance of the ZoZo Championship, Tiger Woods sits at +4000 odds to repeat his 2019 victory at Augusta, and he has yet to finish higher than 37th since the PGA restart.
Round 1 starts at 7:30 am ET this Thursday, (12th), and can be viewed on ESPN. Rounds 3-4 (Saturday and Sunday) will be covered live on CBS.
