Episode Eight – Masters Picks
In 2014, I said I would always pick Bubba Watson to win the Masters if he showed solid form leading up to the tournament. After Jordan Spieth won in 2015, I said he would win so many green jackets that you’d be a fool not to pick him every year.
I am picking Justin Rose to win the Masters in 2018.
Yes, that is a hypocritical choice given my historical “absolutes.” And guess what? I can make an argument for Phil Mickelson to win. I can give you the stats to sell a pathway for Rickie Fowler to Butler Cabin. Rory McIlroy is damn good. And there’s Tiger.
This is the busiest week of the year in golf for a million different reasons, and like most of you, I am gambling… with friends, with colleagues and with perfect strangers. What is my strategy? Which players are sleeper picks? Who should you shy away from? Set your betting strategy with this episode, featuring fantasy golf writer Mike Glasscott.
