The Masters is the first of four major golf tournaments. This annual event takes place in the first week of April and is held at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. Along with the championship, the winner is given a green jacket, which has become a signature staple of the tournament.
Jack Nicklaus holds the most victories at Augusta with six championships, while Tiger Woods has five and Arnold Palmer has four wins at The Masters.
In the 2015 Masters, Jordan Spieth became the fifth golfer to capture a wire-to-wire victory at the Masters, the first since 1976.
The other four golfers to do so were:
Craig Wood (1941)
Arnold Palmer (1960)
Jack Nicklaus (1972)
Raymond Floyd (1976)
Dustin Johnson captured the 2020 Masters with a score of 20-under 268, a course record by two shots set by Tiger Woods in 1997 and matched by Jordan Spieth in 2015.
The event took place in November due to the global pandemic instead of April and no fans were allowed in attendance. The major championship for Johnson was the second of his career and first at Augusta.
Johnson entered the event as a +850 betting choice (Bet $100 to win $850) to capture the tournament and his odds dropped to 5/1 and 9/2 after the second and third rounds respectively. He held a four shot lead heading into Sunday and was a 5/14 favorite to clinch the tournament, doing so rather easily.
