Here’s a look at the favorites and all the odds to win the 2023 Masters:
When does the 2023 Masters Tournament start?
There will be action in Georgia throughout the week before the tournament officially begins.
Players will be on site for practice rounds on Monday and Tuesday before the famous Par 3 Contest on Wednesday. The tournament begins with the first round on Thursday, April 6, running through the fourth and final round on Sunday, April 9.
Who is favored to win the 2023 Masters Tournament?
Before the tournament begins, three names are standing out as heavy favorites: Scottie Scheffler, Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm.
Scheffler is the defending winner after earning his first major championship at Augusta last April. On the other hand, McIlroy and Rahm are both searching for their first Masters victories.
McIlroy has won each of the other three major championships, needing just a Masters victory to complete the career grand slam. Rahm won the U.S. Open in 2021, but his best finish at Augusta was fourth in 2018.
