The US Masters

a Masters Preview from our professional, Jason Boyd

The first golf major of the year is nearly upon us with the US Masters starting next week.

The mystique and anticipation of the Masters is like no other golf tournament.

And the beauty of the 2021 renewal is that we only had wait 21 weeks from when Dustin Johnson sank the winning putt last November before we get to do it all again.

Augusta National Golf Club is the most pristine and manicured golf property on the planet.

It’s where nothing is left to chance, where golfing history is made each year, where a player’s mettle is tested to its absolute maximum.

The US Masters, as the first major of the season, always captures the imagination of the golfing world.

Plenty of questions will be answered at what will be the 85th tournament.

  • Can World Number 1 Dustin Johnson become the first player since Tiger Woods (who else) in 2001/2 to win back-to-back Green Jackets?
  • Can Bryson DeChambeau bring Augusta National to its knees and capture his second major championship?
  • Can the “Major Machine” and 2021 PGA Tour winner Brooks Koepka win his fifth major title in less than three years?
  • Can Rory McIlroy finally complete his major championship Grand Slam?
  • Can Jon Rahm finally deliver a Major victory?
  • Can Justin Thomas capture a second Major title?

If you are looking to see who to put your money on, then I am going for Xander Schauffele or Scotty Scheffler to win their first green jacket.

One thing’s for sure, Augusta, Amen Corner and the first major of the year never lets us down.

I can’t wait… it’s time to bookmark this page
