2019 Masters Player-by-Player Guide

This Masters player-by-player guide, and the corresponding Masters preview, have been produced with the same principles that have gone into developing the Infogol football app. Using data analysis, we objectively assess the chances of each and every player.

Dustin Johnson

Win: 12%; Top 5: 33.8%; Top 10: 49.3%; Make Cut: 85.5%; First Round Leader: 5.3%;

Recent Masters: 14 rounds, scoring average: 71.3; 2.85 (adjusted) strokes gained

Unfortunate to miss the 2017 Masters when playing some of the best golf in his life, which saw him reach world number 1. Last four wins have been by a combined 22 strokes, most recently the WGC Mexico Championship, beating Rory McIlroy by five. Three top 10s in the last three starts at Augusta and comes here playing just about as well as anyone.

Rory McIlroy

Win: 7.5%; Top 5: 25.8%; Top 10: 40%; Make Cut: 80.7%; First Round Leader: 4%;

Recent Masters: 20 rounds, scoring average: 70.8; 3.36 (adjusted) strokes gained

Chasing the career Grand Slam. Had gone over a year without a win prior to the 2019 Players, where he showed signs of returning to the level he reached in 2014, when winning his last two majors. Threatened last year before faltering in the final round to finish T5.

Rickie Fowler

Win: 5.2%; Top 5: 17.4%; Top 10: 28.1%; Make Cut: 72.3%; First Round Leader: 4%;

Recent Masters: 18 rounds, scoring average: 71.2; 2.85 (adjusted) strokes gained

Runner up here 12 months ago (his eighth top five finish in a major) his best to date, making a charge on Sunday. Has all the tools to don the green jacket one day and comes into this year’s event having already tasted success this season, winning the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Justin Thomas

Win: 5%; Top 5: 21.4%; Top 10: 35.8%; Make Cut: 81%; First Round Leader: 2.9%;

Recent Masters: 12 rounds, scoring average: 72.7; 1.85 (adjusted) strokes gained

Has developed into one of the best in the world, and though yet to challenge at Augusta in three starts, has improved with each, best finish (T17) coming last year. Has started this season well.

Justin Rose

Win: 4.8%; Top 5: 24.5%; Top 10: 42.2%; Make Cut: 87.6%; First Round Leader: 2.1%;

Recent Masters: 20 rounds, scoring average: 70.7; 3.56 (adjusted) strokes gained

Enjoyed superb 2018, consistently excellent performances leading him to become world number 1 and win the Fed Ex Cup. Has a solid recent record at Augusta, runner up in 2015 and 2017, continued 2019 where he left off last year.

Brooks Koepka

Win: 3.9%; Top 5: 15.9%; Top 10: 28.4%; Make Cut: 75.8%; First Round Leader: 2.4%;

Recent Masters: 12 rounds, scoring average: 72.3; 2 (adjusted) strokes gained

Bagged two of last year’s majors, which helped briefly propel him to world number 1. Not quite in the same form at the start of this campaign, though decent performance in the Honda Classic last month, and form has peaked in the majors. T33, T21, T11 in three starts here.

Tommy Fleetwood

Win: 3.4%; Top 5: 14.7%; Top 10: 25.7%; Make Cut: 72.9%; First Round Leader: 2.8%;

Recent Masters: 6 rounds, scoring average: 72.7; 1.66 (adjusted) strokes gained

Has cemented his position towards the fore in the betting market on a weekly basis despite never having won a PGA Tour event. Brace of top-five finishes last month means he’s in better form than most, and though he has managed to break par only once in six rounds here, looks likely to remedy that this year as it’s hard to fault his all-round game.

Xander Schauffele

Win: 2.7%; Top 5: 11.8%; Top 10: 21.8%; Make Cut: 68.7%; First Round Leader: 2.5%;

Recent Masters: 4 rounds, scoring average: 74; -0.34 (adjusted) strokes gained

Has found his way into golf’s elite after a fast start to the season, winning the WGC-HSBC Champions and the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Made the cut last year and subsequent top 10 finishes in The Open and US Open confirm he’s capable at the highest level.

Bryson Dechambeau

Win: 2.5%; Top 5: 12.3%; Top 10: 22.8%; Make Cut: 72.9%; First Round Leader: 1.8%;

Recent Masters: 8 rounds, scoring average: 73; 1.5 (adjusted) strokes gained

Transformed himself into a worldwide-winning machine, tasting success an incredible five times between June 2018 and January 2019. Form has understandably levelled off since, but he’s had a couple of sighters at Augusta and he won’t leave any stone unturned in his preparation for this.

Jason Day

Win: 2.4%; Top 5: 13.4%; Top 10: 26%; Make Cut: 79.2%; First Round Leader: 1.4%;

Recent Masters: 20 rounds, scoring average: 72.1; 2.11 (adjusted) strokes gained

Went close here in 2011 and 2013. A solid start to this season (three top 10s) may be the springboard for a big performance here.

Jon Rahm

Win: 2.4%; Top 5: 11.2%; Top 10: 20.9%; Make Cut: 71.8%; First Round Leader: 1.5%;

Recent Masters: 8 rounds, scoring average: 71; 3.1 (adjusted) strokes gained

Has quickly made up into one of the world’s best and showcased his talents with a fourth-place finish here last year on just his second outing at the course, overcoming a slow start to shoot three rounds under 70, including a 65 (gaining over six strokes on the field) on Saturday.

Gary Woodland

Win: 2%; Top 5: 9.7%; Top 10: 19.2%; Make Cut: 69.7%; First Round Leader: 1.6%;

Recent Masters: 10 rounds, scoring average: 74.8; -0.2 (adjusted) strokes gained

Shot a first round 69 on his debut here to showcase his talents but has missed his last three Masters cuts. Finished last season with his best ever major finish (6th in PGA Championship) and has been in solid form so far this season.

Tony Finau

Win: 1.9%; Top 5: 12.2%; Top 10: 25.8%; Make Cut: 79%; First Round Leader: 1.2%;

Recent Masters: 4 rounds, scoring average: 70.2; 3.41 (adjusted) strokes gained

Impressive debut at Augusta last year with a top 10 finish. Has maintained a decent level of performance over the last couple of years to see him close in on the best in the world, but last win came in 2016 (lost playoff to Xander Schauffele in the WGC Champions in 2018).

Hideki Matsuyama

Win: 1.9%; Top 5: 9.5%; Top 10: 18.4%; Make Cut: 69%; First Round Leader: 1.4%;

Recent Masters: 18 rounds, scoring average: 71.6; 2.67 (adjusted) strokes gained

Not playing quite as well as he was back in 2017 when winning the Bridgestone Invitational and the Phoenix Open, but has started 2019 nicely and has played well at Augusta in the past, scoring average of 71.6 leading to four top 20 finishes in his last five years (missing the cut in 2014).

Tiger Woods heads across the Hogan Bridge on the 12th hole, during a practice round. After a long period of injury struggles, Woods is as short as 12/1 to make it five titles in 2019.

Tiger Woods

Win: 1.8%; Top 5: 12.7%; Top 10: 26.9%; Make Cut: 83%; First Round Leader: 1%;

Recent Masters: 8 rounds, scoring average: 71.5; 1.89 (adjusted) strokes gained

Plagued with injuries, eventually undergoing spinal fusion surgery, but went close in a couple of majors before rounding his comeback season off with victory in the 2018 Tour Championship. Only played here twice in the last five years, but is a four-time Masters winner who was rarely out of the top 10 before his injury troubles. Continued good performance in 2019.

Webb Simpson

Win: 1.8%; Top 5: 10.7%; Top 10: 21%; Make Cut: 72.5%; First Round Leader: 1.5%;

Recent Masters: 16 rounds, scoring average: 73.1; 1.26 (adjusted) strokes gained

2012 US Open winner but has never really convinced around here, best finish T20 2018.

Sergio Garcia

Win: 1.7%; Top 5: 8.5%; Top 10: 15.8%; Make Cut: 62.4%; First Round Leader: 1.9%;

Recent Masters: 16 rounds, scoring average: 72.9; 1.59 (adjusted) strokes gained

Certainly wasn’t winning a major out of turn (four-time runner-up) when donning the green jacket in 2017, finally overcoming Justin Rose in a play off. The meltdown (13 on par five 15th hole) suffered on the opening day last year will take some getting over, and he’s had his share of controversy since.

Phil Mickelson

Win: 1.7%; Top 5: 7%; Top 10: 13.4%; Make Cut: 55.5%; First Round Leader: 2.3%;

Recent Masters: 16 rounds, scoring average: 72.1; 1.95 (adjusted) strokes gained

Took an age, for one of his ability, to finally break his major duck, but he can now boast five victories at the top table, three of which have come at Augusta (latest in 2010). Has had a couple of near misses in this since and while he’s long since been unpredictable, a quiet spell coming into this is less of a concern than for others.

Ian Poulter

Win: 1.6%; Top 5: 7.6%; Top 10: 15.8%; Make Cut: 66%; First Round Leader: 1.3%;

Recent Masters: 16 rounds, scoring average: 72.6; 1.56 (adjusted) strokes gained

Quiet couple of years in 2015 and 2016, followed by a resurgence in 2017 and 2018, eventually winning the Houston Open in 2018. Has started 2019 well, T3 in the WGC Mexico Championship, albeit 5 behind McIlroy and 10 behind Johnson. Three top 10 finishes in last ten starts at Augusta.

Patrick Cantlay

Win: 1.4%; Top 5: 9.5%; Top 10: 20%; Make Cut: 75.6%; First Round Leader: 0.9%;

Recent Masters: 2 rounds, scoring average: 75.5; -0.45 (adjusted) strokes gained

Leading amateur back in 2012 who missed the cut last year. This will be just his seventh major as a professional, with his best finish coming at the Open (T12). Generally a reliable and consistent player, despite missing a couple of cuts recently.

Hao Tong Li

Win: 1.4%; Top 5: 6.9%; Top 10: 13.9%; Make Cut: 60.4%; First Round Leader: 1.5%;

Recent Masters: 4 rounds, scoring average: 72.2; 1.41 (adjusted) strokes gained

Talented 23-year-old who shot a first round 69 on his debut last year, finishing T32. Could be an interesting top 10 contender if he can hold it together.

[ TOP 3 UNIBET BETTING OFFERS WIDGET ]

Jordan Spieth

Win: 1.4%; Top 5: 6%; Top 10: 11.9%; Make Cut: 56.3%; First Round Leader: 1.6%;

Recent Masters: 20 rounds, scoring average: 70; 4.16 (adjusted) strokes gained

Has struggled for form and consistency for around a year, but has a Masters record that is second to none over the last five years, victorious in 2015 and a further three top five finishes sees him boast the highest average (adjusted) strokes gained, 3.3, at Augusta in that time. Hard to weigh up and have any confidence in.

Matt Kuchar

Win: 1.3%; Top 5: 6.8%; Top 10: 13.5%; Make Cut: 62.2%; First Round Leader: 1.6%;

Recent Masters: 20 rounds, scoring average: 72; 2.16 (adjusted) strokes gained

Consistent player who has been much more prolific of late (twice a winner already this season) and has four top 10 finishes to his name at Augusta. Very solid.

Tyrrell Hatton

Win: 1.2%; Top 5: 6%; Top 10: 12.9%; Make Cut: 63.8%; First Round Leader: 1%;

Recent Masters: 6 rounds, scoring average: 75; -0.67 (adjusted) strokes gained

Yet to break 70 in six rounds here (scoring average of 75.0), just making the cut last year, before closing with a round of 70. Not quite playing his best in 2019 so far.

Adam Scott

Win: 1.1%; Top 5: 6.4%; Top 10: 13.5%; Make Cut: 63.6%; First Round Leader: 1.4%;

Recent Masters: 20 rounds, scoring average: 72.6; 1.61 (adjusted) strokes gained

Boasts an impressive Masters record, including five top 10s, a hole in one and donning the green jacket in 2013. No longer one of the world’s premier players at 39, but a new-found confidence in his putting may see him feature.

Francesco Molinari

Win: 1%; Top 5: 7.3%; Top 10: 17.5%; Make Cut: 75%; First Round Leader: 0.8%;

Recent Masters: 12 rounds, scoring average: 73.2; 1.03 (adjusted) strokes gained

Modest Masters record over last five years (missed 2015 and 2016) but more promising signs last year when T20. Converted good performances to wins in 2018, including nerveless success in The Open, before being the stand-out player in the Ryder Cup. Superb final round to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational last month, and currently at the peak of his golfing career.

Louis Oosthuizen

Win: 1.1%; Top 5: 6.6%; Top 10: 14.9%; Make Cut: 70.8%; First Round Leader: 0.9%;

Recent Masters: 20 rounds, scoring average: 72.2; 2.06 (adjusted) strokes gained

Missed first three cuts at Augusta before being beaten in a playoff in 2012. Has made the last five cuts, finishing T12 last year. Steady start to 2019.

Lucas Bjerregaard

Win: 1%; Top 5: 4.8%; Top 10: 9.8%; Make Cut: 52.8%; First Round Leader: 1.8%;

Recent Masters: No Masters appearances in last five years

Closed out both European Tour wins strongly (rounds of 67 and 65) and, following solid efforts at the Honda Classic and the Players, showed plenty of mettle with run to semi-final of WGC Match Play recently. Making Masters debut.

Bubba Watson greets his son on the 9th green during the pre-Masters Par 3 Contest.

Win: 0.9%; Top 5: 5.3%; Top 10: 11.1%; Make Cut: 56.6%; First Round Leader: 1.5%;

Recent Masters: 18 rounds, scoring average: 72.1; 2.24 (adjusted) strokes gained

Two-time Masters champion (second win coming in 2014) who finished T5 last year. Isn’t the most consistent player but clearly enjoys Augusta, and has started 2019 well.

Paul Casey

Win: 0.8%; Top 5: 5.8%; Top 10: 13.1%; Make Cut: 66.2%; First Round Leader: 1%;

Recent Masters: 16 rounds, scoring average: 70.8; 3.35 (adjusted) strokes gained

Has been in good form all season and proved that by successfully defending at the Valspar Championship last month. Has the fifth-best average (adjusted) strokes gained at Augusta over the last five years and should be in the mix come Sunday.

Billy Horschel

Win: 0.8%; Top 5: 5.4%; Top 10: 12.3%; Make Cut: 65.3%; First Round Leader: 0.9%;

Recent Masters: 12 rounds, scoring average: 74.2; 0.51 (adjusted) strokes gained

Keegan Bradley

Win: 0.8%; Top 5: 5.2%; Top 10: 11%; Make Cut: 56.6%; First Round Leader: 1.6%;

Recent Masters: 10 rounds, scoring average: 74; 0.32 (adjusted) strokes gained

Won 2018 BMW Championship in a much-improved season, 10th WGC Mexico Championship best effort so far in a more inconsistent 2019. T22 in 2015 his best effort in five previous starts at Augusta.

Rafa Cabrera Bello

Win: 0.8%; Top 5: 4.9%; Top 10: 10.8%; Make Cut: 61.9%; First Round Leader: 0.9%;

Recent Masters: 10 rounds, scoring average: 73.5; 1.23 (adjusted) strokes gained

Yet to win on PGA tour, but five wins elsewhere, including 2017 Scottish Open. Consistent, both in terms of ball-striking and performances, and should make the cut again, but faded after a fast start last year.

Alex Noren

Win: 0.8%; Top 5: 4.7%; Top 10: 10.7%; Make Cut: 57.3%; First Round Leader: 1.2%;

Recent Masters: 4 rounds, scoring average: 76.2; -0.9 (adjusted) strokes gained

Recent Masters: 16 rounds, scoring average: 72.8; 1.57 (adjusted) strokes gained

Hadn’t threatened at Augusta prior to his breakthrough win in this last year, comfortably outgunning final round partner McIlroy. Struggles in 2019 well documented and swing changes have ensued, so follow-up expectations probably modest.

Marc Leishman

Win: 0.6%; Top 5: 4.8%; Top 10: 10.9%; Make Cut: 62%; First Round Leader: 0.9%;

Recent Masters: 12 rounds, scoring average: 73; 1.39 (adjusted) strokes gained

Eddie Pepperell

Win: 0.6%; Top 5: 3.7%; Top 10: 8.1%; Make Cut: 50.9%; First Round Leader: 1.3%;

Recent Masters: No Masters appearances in last five years

Has had few chances in majors, best finish in The Open (T6 in 2018). Finished T3 in the Players last month with a closing round of 66. Not the most consistent in the field, but could outperform the usual expectations of a Masters debutant.

Cameron Smith

Win: 0.6%; Top 5: 3.6%; Top 10: 8%; Make Cut: 54%; First Round Leader: 1.1%;

Recent Masters: 8 rounds, scoring average: 72.8; 1.75 (adjusted) strokes gained

Recent Masters: 4 rounds, scoring average: 74.2; -0.59 (adjusted) strokes gained

Win: 0.6%; Top 5: 3.2%; Top 10: 7%; Make Cut: 48.8%; First Round Leader: 1.1%;

Recent Masters: 14 rounds, scoring average: 73; 1.58 (adjusted) strokes gained

Winner of the Wyndham Championship in 2018 when shooting a 59 in the opening round, earning himself a spot back at Augusta having missed out last year. 2018 was a season of inconsistency, but has started 2019 better, only missing one cut.

Reigning champion Patrick Reed dons the green jacket in 2018. Bookies make him 50/1+ to repeat the feat this year.

Recent Masters: 14 rounds, scoring average: 73.1; 1.1 (adjusted) strokes gained

Win: 0.5%; Top 5: 4%; Top 10: 8.5%; Make Cut: 55%; First Round Leader: 1%;

Recent Masters: 4 rounds, scoring average: 74.2; 0.13 (adjusted) strokes gained

T6 2013 on Masters debut after an opening round 78 (T44 in 2014 on only other start). Started 2019 in not quite the same form as he ended 2018, but decent chance of making the weekend.

Matthew Fitzpatrick

Recent Masters: 14 rounds, scoring average: 72.9; 1.68 (adjusted) strokes gained

Recent Masters: No Masters appearances in last five years
