The Masters Tournament is one of professional golf’s four major international championships. We are going to take a look at The Masters odds and let you know where you can bet online.
The Masters is the first of the four to take place during the calendar year, with games played in early April. What sets this championship apart from the other three is that it’s always hosted by the same venue: the private Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. It attracts many of the world’s top golfers and as a prize fund of $11.5 million to be shared among the highest-ranking players. Since its founding in 1934, there have been a total of 83 iterations. The most recent one was won by Tiger Woods; this was his fifth Masters won and his first since 2005. The golfer’s total number of Masters wins is one less than the record of six wins held by Jack Nicklaus, who’s widely regarded as the greatest professional golfer of all time.
