Ultimate Guide To Masters Golf Betting

Jake Cooper - 04 Apr 2022

Scheduled to be played from April 7-10, and at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, the 2022 Masters Tournament will be the 86th edition of the grand and beloved event.

Masters Golf betting enthusiasts are raring to go as it’s the first of the men's four major golf championships to be staged on the golfing calendar every year. In keeping with custom, it will also be the first major to be played in 2022.

In terms of who gets to compete in the annual Masters Tournament, participation is by invitation only. This makes of the Masters an exclusive event, and the tournament with the smallest field of all four the major annual championships.

Topbetting has everything you need to know about which way to wager.

Criteria For Being Invited

A number of criteria apply for deciding invitations. These include auto-passes for all past winners, winners of recent major championship events, PGA Tour leaders from the previous season, full-point tournament winners during the previous 12 months on the PGA Tour, recent major championship victors, and players leading the Official World Golf Rankings.

Every year, a group of leading amateurs are also selected to compete, which is considered one of the biggest honours in the sport.

Past winners of the event include Tiger Woods, Fred Couples, Hideki Matsuyama (last year's winner), Adam Scott, Jordan Spieth, Mike Weir, Sandy Lyle, Bernhard Langer, Sergio Garcia, and Zach Johnson.

Most Famous Players In The Playoffs

The most famous players likely to be seen in this year's Playoffs include the very cream of the golfing crop. If you’re planning on enjoying a bit of Masters Golf betting, then these are the players you need to know about.

Our Topbetting picks include:

  • Sandy Lyle. At 64, Lyle has played in a massive 40 Masters events. He has won the tournament twice and is a favourite to make his next trip 'round Amen Corner count.
  • Fred Couples. The 62-year-old has had 36 Masters appearances. He won the prestigious event in 1992 and has made the cut in 30 of his 36 appearances.
  • Cameron Davis. While the 27-year-old Davis has yet to win his first Masters, he makes out list of favourites for this year's Playoffs because of his stellar performance at last year's Rocket Mortgage Classic. He comes into the 2022 Playoffs after missing the cut in three of his previous four starts and will be hoping to change things around on the weekend.
  • Charl Schwartzel. At age 37, Schwartzel has put in 12 Masters appearances. Ranked No. 171 in the world, Schwartzel won the event in 2011.
  • Bernhard Langer. Despite on a fast approach to age 65, Langer remains the number one premier player on the PGA Tour. In February, Langer won an incredible 43rd senior tour title when he reigned victorious in the Chubb Classic. Langer has won the Masters twice – in 1985 and again in 1993. Despite his age, he remains a favourite for winning the event again this year.
  • Tiger Woods. Aged 46, the legend has won the Masters an incredible 5 times – in 1997, 2001, 2002, 2005, and 2019. On Sunday, Woods confirmed he would be coming to Augusta, and that he might even compete in this year's event. Whether he does end up playing or not, if there's anybody capable of winning the Masters after a 14-month hiatus from the game, that man would be Tiger Woods.
