The 2015 Masters - 10 Vital Statistics


10. The 79th Masters Tournament tees off on Thursday with 19 past champions in the field and 28 Europeans. A European is 3.00 to win the tournament.

9. One of those past champions is Tiger Woods, who has donned the Green Jacket on four previous occasions — his most recent in 2005. Woods is 2.15 not to make the cut.

8. World no.1 Rory McIlroy has played just three PGA Tour tournaments this year — his best finish tied ninth at the WCG-Cadillac Championships. Four-time major winner McIlroy is 7.00 to win the Masters.

7. There was not a left-handed Masters winner until Mike Weir in 2003. Since then, Phil Mickelson (’04, ’06, ’10) and Bubba Watson (’12, ’14) have ensured six of the past 12 Tournaments have been won by lefties. A left-hander is 7.50 to win again.

6. Since sudden-death playoffs were introduced in 1976, there have been 10 playoffs at the Masters. Three have been played in the past six Tournaments and another is priced at 3.00.

5. Two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson has twice placed in the top three on the PGA Tour this year (tied second at the Phoenix Open and third at the WCG-Cadillac). The defending Masters champion is 12.00 to win.

4. Australians Jason Day (5) and Adam Scott (6) both rank within the top 10 on the PGA and between them have made eight cuts from nine tournaments in 2015. An Australian is 8.00 to win at Augusta.

3. Englishman Ian Poulter has made the cut in each of his last four tournaments after missing the Pebble Beach mark in February. Poulter, 39, is 16.00 to place 1-5 at Augusta.

2. American Matt Every won his second successive Arnold Palmer Invitational crown last month — his sole top-25 finish this season. Every, 31, is 36.00 to place 1-5.

1. Justin Rose has missed the cut in three of his five PGA Tour outings in 2015 and has twice finished in the Augusta top 10 from nine previous attempts. Rose is 3.75 to finish top Englishman.
