2017 US Masters Power Rankings
The US Masters is the first major of the golf year and it takes place every season at the Augusta National in Georgia. The famous course isn't for everyone and many a famous player has fallen by the wayside in this opening major, although others tend to raise their game when the possibility of wearing that green winners' jacket rolls around.
When considering a bet on the US Masters, it is worth checking which players thrive or wilt under the pressure of Augusta and we have come up with a handy betting guide profiling all of the leading 'runners and riders' at this year's tournament below...

The Latest US Masters Power Rankings
- Recent Form:
- Masters Best:
- Dustin Johnson
- T4 in 2016
Quite simply the form man in world golf right now. Dustin Johnson has won six tournaments in the past twelve months alone and he heads to Augusta with a stunning return of three wins from his past three starts. Tied 4th here last year.
- Jordan Spieth
- Winner in 2015
Spieth has ended no worse than tied 2nd in three visits to Augusta (2-1-2) and he will have unfinished business with the course following last year's 'meltdown', during which he blew a five-shot lead on the back-nine. Spieth has rediscovered that winning feeling with three victories since.
- Rory McIlroy
- 4th in 2015
The Masters remains the one major that has eluded Rory McIlroy and he bids to complete a career Grand Slam in Georgia. The Northern Irishman has gone very close here in the past but arrives in 2017 with a lack of match practice behind him following a rib injury.
- Hideki Matsuyama
- 5th in 2015
Hideki Matsuyama's form has cooled a touch since he went on a ridiculously good run that saw him win five of nine starts, although expect him to be fresh and raring to go in his bid for a maiden major victory.
- Jon Rahm
A rising force in world golf, Jon Rahm has flourished since claiming his maiden PGA Tour title at the Farmers Insurance Open and it is a sign of how highly the Spaniard is rated that he is as short as 22/1 for his Masters debut.
- Jason Day
- T2 in 2011
Went into the 2016 edition as the bookmakers' favourite off the back of a red hot streak of form but he is yet to hit such heights this season due to injury problems. Tied 2nd at Augusta in 2011.
- Phil Mickelson
- Winner in 2004, 2006, 2010
You can never write 'Lefty' off when he tees up in Georgia as Phil Mickelson is a three-time winner of the Masters and he does have a tendency to raise his game whenever a major tournament comes around. He has produced some strong efforts this year and he ranks as a major threat.
- Henrik Stenson
- T14 in 2014
It has been a funny old year for Henrik Stenson thus far as the ultra-consistent Swede has produced some excellent golf despite a couple of issues with injuries. The Open champion will be a threat now he has got the monkey of never winning a major off his back.
- Justin Rose
- T2 in 2015
Justin Rose became the first English player to win a major since Nick Faldo in 1996 when he won the 2013 US Open. Rose will now be eyeing a crack at the Masters and it bodes well that he hasn't missed a cut in eleven appearances at Augusta, including a best of tied 2nd from 2015.
- Rickie Fowler
- T5 in 2014
A first major win continues to elude Rickie Fowler and he has yet to hit the heights that saw him top-five in all four majors during the 2014 season. The exuberant American keeps on producing the goods on the PGA Tour though and that first piece of major silverware is surely going to come.
- Bubba Watson
- Winner in 2012 and 2014
A two-time winner of the famous Green Jacket at Augusta, Bubba Watson loves playing in Georgia and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him defy a disappointing campaign to contend at The Masters once more.
- Adam Scott
- Winner in 2013
The 2013 champion remains a consistent force on the world golf scene and he knows what is required to get over the line at Augusta. The Australian hasn't won a title in more than twelve months but he is consistently in the reckoning for honours.
- Paul Casey
- 4th in 2016
Paul Casey is another ultra-consistent performer on the PGA Tour who is still searching for a maiden major title. If that first major win is going to come anywhere then it could be Augusta as he has racked up four top-ten finishes in his past ten visits.
- Sergio Garcia
- T4 in 2004
It would be wonderful to see the likeable Sergio Garcia win a major after going so close over the years but his many near-misses mean that we are left wondering whether he has the minerals to get over the line. The Spaniard has just three top-tens to his name at Augusta but he has been in good touch on the PGA Tour of late.
- Charl Schwartzel
- Winner in 2011
Charl Schwartzel memorably won the US Masters in only his second appearance at Augusta in 2011 and it remains the sole major win of his career. His victory in Georgia ensures he is treated with respect and his form since the start of last season indicates that he hasn't lost any of the tools that secured him this title.
- Louis Oosthuizen
- 2nd in 2012
The 2010 British Open winner has been quietly going about his business in understated fashion this season and the man who finished runner-up at Augusta in 2012 could yet sneak under the radar for The Masters, where he has finished in the top-25 in four of his past five visits.
- Zach Johnson
- Winner in 2007
Zach Johnson is a former US Masters winner and must be treated with respect, particularly after he won the Open Championship in 2015. Johnson won at Augusta in 2007 and he has been admirably consistent again during this PGA Tour season.
- Brandt Snedeker
- T3 in 2008
Brandt Snedeker has been in good touch this season, securing four top-fifteen finishes on the PGA Tour, and he has a decent record at Augusta, finishing in the top-20 in five of his past nine visits.
- Justin Thomas
- T39 in 2016
Justin Thomas started the calendar year like a runaway train, winning the Tournament of Champions and Sony Open in Hawaii back-to-back, but his form has cooled a touch since then. Tied 39th on his Augusta debut in 2016 and will be better for the experience.
- Patrick Reed
- T22 in 2015
Patrick Reed has endured a tough year by his own high standards but he hasn't missed a cut since the US Open and the Ryder Cup star has proven that he is a man for the big occasion. Reed relishes the roar of a big crowd and he will hope to build on the experience gained from three previous visits to Augusta (MC-22-49).
