Rory Mcllroy ($10,600)

Rory has had an interesting start to 2023. He won in Dubai at the Hero Dubai Desert Classic and came 2nd at the Arnold Palmer but has looked rather pedestrian otherwise.

He’s lost strokes putting in three of his last four tournaments but Bentgrass is his best putting surface.

Rory has three top 5 finishes at Augusta National in his last five appearances.

Cam Smith ($9,800)

Cam has never missed the cut at the Masters in six starts at Augusta and has finished top 5 in three of his last five appearances here.

Cam has played two tournaments for LIV this year finishing 5th at Mayakoba and 24th in Tucson a few weeks ago.

Jordan Spieth ($9,700)

Spieth missed the cut last year at the Masters which was surprising considering his previous success at Augusta. He had previously made the cut at the Masters for eight straight years. He won his green jacket in 2015 and has come top 3 in four of his nine appearances.

Spieth has played well in 2023 with three top 3 finishes including a 3rd place at the Valspar Championship a couple of weeks ago. He’s been striking the ball very well recently, gaining strokes on approach in five straight tournaments.

Jordan had some issues with the putter for a stretch but has since corrected that gaining strokes putting in three straight events.

Patrick Cantlay ($9,500)

Cantlay has mixed results at the Masters. He came 9th in 2019 and 17th in 2020 but hasn’t faired well in his four other appearances. He’s missed the cut twice, finished 39th last year, and 47th in his debut back in 2012.

He’s played well this season with no extraordinary results thus far. He’s missed one cut in six tournaments in 2023 to date.

His best finishes have been a 3rd place at the Genesis and a 4th place at the Arnold Palmer. Over his last three tournaments, Cantlay has gained an average of 9.6 strokes from tee to green.
