Rory McIlroy came to Augusta as the pre-competition favorite but has plummeted as far as 22/1 after carding a first-round 73 that leaves his title chances uncertain.
Brooks Koepka, on the other hand, emerged from the pack and shot to become the joint-odds leader at 9/2 after Thursday’s 66 left him sharing the lead alongside Bryson DeChambeau.
The latter of those, DeChambeau, had a memorable shot to end his first-round outing and tapped home after a 200-yard drive from the fairway hit the flag. He birdied the last hole and said:
“The ball was sitting down in the rough and all I wanted to do was get the shot started towards the middle of the green. Maybe I should have had my caddie attend the pin. The ball was just moving too fast to drop. Overall I’m pleased. I was patient on the front nine but not getting rewarded. But I got going on the 12th where I made a birdie. And from the 15th on, I just sailed through.”
Tiger Woods also approached the 83rd Masters as one of the names to keep an eye on at 14/1, and he’s maintained that status after shooting a 70 on the opening day to improve his chances.
Woods has won the Green Jacket four times in his career and tied for a share of 32nd in the 2018 tournament after missing three of the previous four editions.
Dustin Johnson remains in sight of the top of the table after a strong start and is sure to have more sway on the title conversation as we move closer to Sunday evening. Koepka and DeChambeau are each vying to become the next unsuspecting star to triumph at Augusta, though golf’s better-known superstars remain in the hunt for the first major of 2019.
