10 Picks to Win The 2024 Masters

By: | Mon 08 Apr 2024

The 2024 Masters is the 88th edition of the iconic tournament, which is set to be as compelling as ever when the world's best take that famous drive down Mangolia Lane to face Augusta National.

But who could be slipping into that Green Jacket on Sunday? Golfshake's Derek Clements has assessed the chances of ten players who may - or may not - have a realistic chance of winning.

Scottie Scheffler

The world number one is in a class of his own and now has a huge lead at the top of the rankings after his victories at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and Players Championship. A brilliant ball striker, the big worry for his rivals is that Scheffler has now found a putting stroke he can rely on under pressure.

Brooks Koepka

Came close to winning here 12 months ago before going on to win the US PGA Championship. A ferocious competitor, when it comes to majors Koepka is different class. They bring out the very best in him. He would love to add the Green Jacket to his collection.

Jon Rahm

Jon Rahm Masters

Will be fired up for his title defence. He is sure to face lots of questions about LIV and the possible merger with the PGA Tour but that is likely to simply make him even more determined to make a proper go at trying to become a back-to-back Masters champion.

Tommy Fleetwood

Has every shot in the book and knows what it takes to challenge in the majors, having finished second at The Open and US Open. He is still searching for his first victory on American soil but won in Dubai in January, holding off a charging Rory McIlroy in the process. Has a wonderful temperament.

Xander Schauffele

If you were asked to name the best golfer in the world not to have won major, Schauffele would surely feature in the conversation. He has a wonderful temperament and has a happy knack of producing his very best golf on the most difficult courses.

Rory McIlroy

It is nearly 10 years since McIlroy won the most recent of his four majors. He needs this one to complete the career Grand Slam but with each passing year it becomes more difficult. It is crucial that the Northern Irishman gets off to a good start. Found some form at the Texas Open.

Joaquin Niemann

A huge talent. The Chilean is a member of the LIV Golf Tour but received an invitation to Augusta after his stellar play around the world. He won the Australian Open in December and has produced some wonderful play on the LIV circuit in 2024. Don’t rule out his chances.

Will Zalatoris

Another who seems to save his best golf for tough courses. Now fully recovered from back surgery that sidelined him for the bulk of 2023, Zalatoris is a wonderful iron player. He has switched to a long putter, which seems to have solved his putting woes.

Tiger Woods

His victory in 2019 was one for the ages. But much has happened to the 15-time major champion since then. Augusta is a physically demanding course and there remain many questions about his fitness. And, frankly, he simply hasn’t played enough competitive golf. Will do well to make the cut.

Cameron Young

The American is still looking to win for the first time but he keeps knocking at the door and at some point it will open. There is a sense of growing frustration but Young just needs to keep doing the same things. He hits the ball a long way and is an excellent putter.
