The first golf major is upon us as we head to one of the most beautiful places in the world, Augusta. Although McIlroy and Speith are clear favourites with the bookies, this is the most open Masters markets we’ve seen for many years and there looks to be plenty of reasons to suggest Jason Day will be right in the hunt this year.
- Recent form: Torrey Pines and Riviera have long been considered places where form translates to Augusta and Jason Day's two wins at Torrey Pines bode well for this week. His win this year was one of the performances of the season to date as he held off a very resilient Alex Noren in a proper dog fight.
- Found his radar on the green: What was telling in his victory was the way he putted akin to his stroke when he won the PGA at Whistling Straits. He holed everything early on in round four and holed an impressive 8 footer on the 71st for par to stay right in it. Putts were holed on 18 and a few of the play off holes to manage to keep pace with Noren. They were all pressure putts and every single one went right in the middle. It was savage putting under the heat.
- Lessons learnt: Augusta has seen him finish second in 2011 and then a disappointing 3rd in 2013 when he blew a lead in the final round by over shooting the par 3 16th. A close call there and in the Open Championship taught Day lessons and he has learned from them.
