He says: “Phil Mickelson (4.25) and Bubba Watson (4.26) love the par-5 13th hole. Back The two lefties before they launch one around the corner.”

Steve ‘The Punter’ Rawlings’ provides a comprehensive preview of the US Masters with essential info on the historical trends, course, players’ form and his best betting angles.

He says: “This is a fabulous renewal and a wide open one. I quite like Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka towards the head of the market but for now I’m going to war with just one – Tyrrell Hatton.”

He says: “The selection is 28-years-old, ranked World No.9 and has played in three previous Masters, finishing T9 last year. He took victory on his latest start and is a non-major winner. He’s also priced over 16/1.”

Dave picks his three each-way bets for Augusta National and talks up the chances of a certain two-time winner claiming a third green jacket.

He says: “His recent approach play has been excellent. He ranked 9th for SG: Approach at the US Open, 2nd at the CJ Cup and 19th at the ZOZO. That helped him to finish 31st, 7th and 4th in those three events.”

Bubba Watson each-way @ 22/1

Our European Tour tipster Matt Cooper takes a close look at the continent’s Masters challenge and has three each-way selections.

He says: “He finished T17th at Winged Foot, a decent enough performance, but a heck of a lot more impressive when you note that he carded a 76 in round one that had him T119th.”

Back Paul Casey each-way @ 55/1

Our famous Find Me a 100 Winner column turns its focus to the Masters and tries to find a winner at odds of 99/1 or bigger. Steve Rawlings recommends three players at big prices.

He says: “Fourteen of the last 19 majors have been won by a first-time major winner and the last 34 majors have been won by someone inside the world’s top-50. If that run is to be extended to 35 in-a-row and a rather neat 15 of 20, that brings as many as six Englishman into range.”
