2017 US Masters Tips, Predictions & Betting Odds

Hideki Matsuyama

Scroll down for our  US Masters tips 2017, explanation and what to look out for when picking your US Masters bets.

It’s the first major golf tournament of the year, played at one of the most iconic courses on the planet. This is the Masters. This is Augusta. This is a punter’s paradise.

Why so? Well, from 2011 to 2015 none of the winners were priced above 35/1, so we would have had a great angle in if it remained that way. However, Danny Willett bucked the trend in 2016, winning at 80/1 so has the tide turned?

The Masters is legendary for a number of reasons, and if you’ve ever wondered about that famous Green Jacket then it is always handed from one winner to the next. Prior to the main event there is even a fun Par 3 contest on the Wednesday evening, where in 2015 75-year-old Jack Nicklaus popped in a hole-in-one. As this is an American sporting occasion, there’s the usual razzmatazz and tomfoolery too.

US Masters Tips 2017

From the shortlist of ten players below, we are going to pick out our five Masters tips for 2017! Remember to back all of our tips each way and Paddy Power are paying a massive 8 places on all each way bets!

Hideki Matsuyama

One of our favourite Masters tips is Hideki. There is no doubt in mind that this Japanese star will win multiple Major Championships and he is bidding to become just the second Asian to ever win a major this week, which comes with a lot of pressure for the young man. He has already registered five victories in the 2016/2017 season, two of which were on the PGA Tour. Y.E. Yang is the only Asian to ever win a major and that came in 2009 when he won the PGA Championship, beating Tiger Woods.

Hideki is the 4th best player in the world according to the official rankings and he arrives here in good form after defending his title at the Phoenix Open last month. He doesn’t give away much on the golf course, always has a fairly  serious face but you can feel the desire burning inside of him. His swing is technically 100% sound, an extremely consistent ball striker.

His form is ridiculously good, probably the most consistent player on Tour along with Dustin Johnson within the past twelve months. He has an amazing temperament, never gets flustered by a poor shot. He has no swing coach which I find refreshing. If something isn’t right, he irons it out himself. Hideki Matsuyama is a recipe for Masters success.

Rickie Fowler

Rickie Fowler is playing some unbelievable golf at just the right time which bodes well for the young star with Augusta less than a week away. An opening round of 64, eight under Par, in the Shell Houston Open proves his game is in sublime form. He is a four time winner on the PGA Tour and is seeking his first major victory at Augusta next week.

He is a player who can shape the ball both ways and around Augusta it can be essential to draw the ball from right to left to leave yourself in the best possible positions on the fairways. Now ranked 9th in the World Rankings, he missed the cut here 12 months ago but T-5 and T-12 finishes the two years’ previous prove his game is well suited to the course.

He twice led the field in putting here at the Masters and if he can do that again this week, he won’t be out of the places. Confident player, terrific putter, crisp iron player, he has it all.

Justin Rose

Rosey will be hoping to make it back to back successes for the English and he is third US Masters tip.

Putting is a recipe for success at The Masters and although that is not Justin’s strong point, it is difficult to leave him out of the equation. It is quite simple – if Rose putts really well this week, he will win The Masters. Tee to green, he is the best player in the world. He splits fairways and finds the middle of the green more than any other player out there.

Even he will admit that his putting has let him down. He is a major winner but he would be a multiple major winner if his putting could improve. He is very solid with long range putts, it’s the putts inside 10 feet he struggles with. Luckily at Augusta, the majority of the putting will be done from long range and Par is the name of the game, no silly mistakes so Rose should be right up there. T-10, T-2, T-14, T-25, T-8, T-11 here the last six years proves how consistent a player he is and we’re expecting another good week for the Englishman.

Daniel Berger

Usually, experience is key in order to have a good week at Augusta National but Daniel Berger performed exceptionally well on his first start at The Masters last year to finish in a tie for 10th. In his second round, his one under Par round of 71 earned him a crystal vase and that may give him the required belief that he can go one better and pick up the Green Jacket this year.

He likes to fade the ball off the tee which makes the course a lot more difficult so the performance was even more impressive taking that into account. A long driver of the ball off the tee is always a help and he certainly gets it out there. His sole win came in the St. Jude Classic last year and he also agonisingly lost out to Padraig Harrington in a play-off in the Honda Classic.

Berger is one of our in form Masters tips having finished 5th at The Houston Open last week and scooping us placed returns at 45/1. He is young, has a lot of talent, and looks worth a bet at such a big price.

Shane Lowry

To finish our US Masters tips for 2017 we have a big price for you here, 175/1 for the Irishman? Really? A bit of an insult if you ask me, this guy has a lot of game, loves a tough golf course and has serious major pedigree. He was T-2 in the US Open last year on an exceptionally tough course. Although his finishing position was overall disappointing at The Masters last year, it was also full of promise. After the first round, he was in a tie for 2nd after a terrific round of 68.

Sadly, he couldn’t build on that brilliant first round and his challenge faded after round three but this golf course is all about experience and he will have a list of things to do and not to do. “Why did I play X iron on Hole X?” “Why did I take driver out on Hole X?” You can only succeed at Augusta by playing the course and learning from your mistakes and I’m expecting a very solid week from Lowry this week, a player who comes in here under the radar.

He might love a pint of Guinness and a big steak along with a bit of craic, but when it comes to the major’s he does take them very seriously. He went off 25/1 for the Open Championship in 2015 and although he didn’t win, he then went on to win the Bridgestone at 175/1. There is no way he should be this price for me so let’s hope he proves us right.
