The first major championship of the year gets started April 5-8, 2018 at the Masters Tournament where Sergio Garcia is the defending champion. The first full week in April, played on the same venue since the tournament’s inception in 1934, the Masters Tournament rarely disappoints and is one of the most watched sporting events year after year.
Augusta National Golf Club is one of the world’s finest courses. The blooming azaleas and large dogwood trees add beauty to the layout that features doglegs, short holes, long holes, risk and reward holes and some of the fastest greens on the planet.
Last year Sergio Garcia finally got the monkey off his back by breaking through and winning his first major championship. In a topsy-turvy day that featured multiple lead changes, Garcia battled Englishman Justin Rose and the two were tied after regulation play. The playoff would last only one hole as the Spaniard made birdie to put his name in the record books.
Jack Nicklaus holds the record for the most wins with six. Tiger Woods and Arnold Palmer put on the Green Jacket four times, while Gary Player, Nick Faldo, Sam Snead and Phil Mickelson all won it three times.

In European style, the oddsmakers will present the +200 line as 3.00 or 2/1, and the -200 line would be 1.50 or 1/2.

The Masters is the only tournament of the 4 Majors that is played on the same private golf course every year in Augusta, Georgia famously named Augusta National Golf Club, because that is Tradition. This professional golf event also counts as an official money event on the European Tour, the Japan Golf Tour and the PGA Tour.
That traditional symbol has been awarded to the winner formally since 1949 when the winner from the previous year traditionally puts the coat on the official current Masters winner.
Jack Nicklaus was the first repeat winner in 1965-66 and simply put it on like we do, by himself. Now, the Chairman of Augusta National slips it on for a back-to-back as he did with Nick Faldo in 1989-90 and Masters Golf Odds favorite, Tiger Woods in 2001-02.

The Augusta National Golf Club used to be an indigo plantation before an investment banker friend of Jones, Clifford Roberts, made him aware that it was just what he was looking for to develop a private golf club. Jones bought it and even co-designed it with Alister MacKenzie opening in 1933. Continue

With traditional fixed odds betting, you can only place bets before and after play commences each day, so if you miss your window, you have to wait until the next break in play before you can place another bet. Continue
