Rory McIlroy is the 12/1 favourite for the Masters 2023 after his record equalling final round 64 at Augusta.
The Northern Irishman, who charged through the field to finish on his own in second place, remains without a Masters title in 14 attempts but did manage his seventh top 10.
His red hot final round came as no surprise to oddschecker expert Niall Lyons, who tipped him at 21/20 to win his two-ball against Collin Morikawa (who himself played well to shoot 67) and 14/1 in the outright market without overnight top three Scottie Scheffler, Cameron Smith and Sungjae Im.
Lyons wrote: “His poor final rounds here have only arrived when he has been in or around the lead at the start on Sunday. On those other occasions he has shot 69,68,69,71,66,69,69. When the pressure if off here McIlroy can freewheel and I expect him to score well in decent conditions today.”

Score well he certainly did, but it wasn’t enough to derail the imperious Scheffler, who continued his remarkable recent dominance of the men's game with a fourth victory in his last six tournaments. He remains a favourable 14/1 to retain his title next April.
Tiger Woods, meanwhile, has the same best price of 66/1 for next year's tournament, but he is as short as 28/1 with one bookmaker. The 15-time major champion and five time Masters winner was well inside the cut line after two days but faded with a pair of 78's across the weekend.
Shane Lowry, one of Lyons’ pre-tournament place picks, secured a T3 finish (joint with Smith), which has seen his outright odds come in from a best price 45/1 (nine places) this year to 40/1 in 2023.
Smith is currently sixth favourite after McIlroy (12/1), Rahm, Scheffler, Thomas (all 14/1) and 2020 winner Dustin Johnson (16/1).
