It’s only been five months since Dustin Johnson set a record score of 268, 20-under-par to claim his first-ever Masters win and walk away with the coveted green jackets. Due to the postponement of the tournament in April 2020 because of CoVid-19, the 2020 Masters were rescheduled to this past November. Now, instead of waiting a full year, the 2021 Masters will be played on its normal schedule and be the first major championship of the year.

So who will be awarded the green jacket this year and the revered title of Masters Champion?

Here are our top 5 picks for who will be the last man standing at Augusta:

Bryson DeChambeau (+1100)

After winning the 2020 U.S. Open by six strokes, DeChambeau was a popular pick to win the 2020 Masters, but struggled and wound up T-34, 2-under-par. He has bounced back since winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational last month and finished third at the Players Championship. He has the ability to use his momentum and put on the same performance at Augusta. 

Jon Rahm (+1200)

In his last three Masters, Rahm has finished in the top 10, so if anyone is due for a green jacket it is him. Many experts are fading him, however, since his wife is due to give birth to his first child any day now and could leave mid-tournament, but if he stays to compete, he could finish at the top.=

Rory McIlroy (+1400)

McIlroy hasn’t won a major since 2014, but if not for a poor first round in the 2020 Masters, he could have potentially gone toe-to-toe with Dustin Johnson for the championship. Scoring a +3 in the first round, McIlroy rebounded nicely, finishing T-5 with an 11-under-par. After switching swing coaches last month, Rory has the potential to make some noise atop the leaderboard.

Collin Morikawa (+2500)

At only 24 years old, the Los Angeles native has already racked up an impressive amount of accomplishments including winning the 2020 PGA Championship. The only other golfer to win a major championship before the age of 25 was no other than Tiger Woods – a two-time Masters champion. After finishing T-44 back in his Masters debut in November, Morikawa should play much better this time around and possibly secure his second major golf championship. He also emerged victorious at the WGC-Workday Championship back in February by three strokes which shows he’s capable of bouncing back.

Tony Finnau (+2500)

After finishing in the top 10 in the 2018 and 2019 Masters, Finnau was another hot pick to win back in November, but disappointed and finished T-38. Even though he has not won a tournament since 2016, he has three runner-up finishes to start 2021, so he is playing some of his best golf at the moment.
