While it's true that the Masters hasn't witnessed a triple-digit winner since Charl Schwartzel beat out Jason Day and Adam Scott at the 2011 Masters, in a year of Dark Horse winners on both the PGA and LIV Tours there is a glimmer of a chance a surprise winner emerges from the pack this week at the year's first major championship.

Harris English could follow in the footsteps of Schwartzel, and both Clark and Harman at last year's majors, and become another unlikely major winner. The University of Georgia product, a member of the victorious U.S. Ryder Cup team at Whistling Straits, is undoubtedly comfortable in this part of the country.

Harris won the Sentry Tournament of Champions back in 2021 at Kapalua, a locale that has often drawn comparisons to Augusta National due to its drastic changes in elevation. He returned to the season-opening Sentry this year and finished T-14.

The result in Hawaii marked a run of six Top 21 finishes or better in nine starts this year. He will make his third start at the Masters since 2019 this week having had made the cut on both of his two previous visits to Augusta National, including a T-21 finish here in 2021.

While English missed the cut last week in Texas at the Valero Texas Open, prior to that, he was on a run of three straight finishes of T-21 or better, including an impressive T-8 result at this year's Genesis Invitational, one of this season's signature events.

Harris has shown that he can win big events just as he did in Hawaii in 2021 and while winning a major is on a whole other scale, he is worth a shot at triple-digit odds in the hope that he can continue his run of strong form and follow in Brian Harman's miraculous footsteps.
