Masters 2019

Masters 2019: Definitive TV Schedule and Live-Stream Guide for Thursday

Tiger Woods is not about to stop the pursuit of his fifth Masters and 15th major title any time soon.

When the 43-year-old tees off Thursday morning at 11:04 a.m. ET with playing partners Jon Rahm and Haotong Li, he will open his first round believing another championship is in front of him.

Woods has never lacked for self-confidence, and with his health problems seemingly behind him, he is one of the tournament’s betting favorites.

“I just feel like I’ve improved a lot over the past 12-14 months,” he said, per Christine Brennan of USA Today. “But I’ve more than anything just proved to myself that I can play at this level again. I’ve worked my way back into one of the players that can win events.”

The first round will be telvised by the Golf Channel and ESPN. The former begins its coverage at 8 a.m. ET and will continue until the latter begins live coverage at 3 p.m.

The Golf Channel’s coverage is live-reporting of the event and will help viewers keep up-to-date with the scoring, and it also includes analysis from its crew of experts as well as feature pieces.

2019 Masters Odds

Here’s a look at the odds for the top 25 golfers in the field, per Oddschecker.

Rory McIlroy, +650 (bet $100 to win $650)
Dustin Johnson, +1100
Justin Rose, +1200
Tiger Woods, +1800
Jon Rahm, +2000
Justin Thomas, +2000
Rickie Fowler, +2000
Jordan Spieth, +2500
Francesco Molinari, +2500
Hideki Matsuyama, +2500
Paul Casey, +2800
Brooks Koepka, +3000
Bryson DeChambeau, +3000
Tommy Fleetwood, +3000
Jason Day, +3300
Bubba Watson, +3300
Tony Finau, +4000
Xander Schauffele, +4000
Louis Oosthuizen, +4000
Marc Leishman, +4000
Matt Kuchar, +4000
Phil Mickelson, +4500
Adam Scott, +4500
Sergio Garcia, +4800
Henrik Stenson, +6600

McIlroy comes in as the favorite after playing some of the best golf of his career. He is second in FedEx Cup points to Matt Kuchar and in a position to move to the top if he can win his first green jacket.

The 29-year-old has played 10 events this season, and he has finished in the top 10 in seven of them. His victory in the Players Championship in March is significant because that event included the most high-powered field of the year until the Masters.

McIlroy has career victories in the U.S. Open, British Open and the PGA Championship. If he can win the Masters, it will give him the career grand slam, something accomplished by only Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Nicklaus, Player and Woods.

Even all-time greats Sam Snead and Arnold Palmer did not reach that level, and if the Northern Irishman can join that elite quintet, it would be a stellar moment for him.

McIlroy is a worthy favorite, but the strength of the field makes winning the Masters one of the most challenging events of the year for him and every other golfer in the field.

Golf’s most storied tournament tees off once again from Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, featuring the best players in the world vying for the legendary green jacket.

The Masters is the first major of 2019 and the first since the 2018 PGA Championship, when Tiger Woods finished second. Woods is still searching for his first major win since the 2008 U.S. Open. He has four career wins at Augusta.

Masters purse, winnings

The Masters purse for 2019 has not been announced yet, but it is projected to be at least $11 million, which was the total the past two years. Patrick Reed pocketed $1,980,000 as the champion last year, so expect the winner to get that amount, if not more. The second place consolation probably won’t be too bad either. They are expected to earn over $1 million.

With The Players Championship increasing its purse to $12,500,000 this year, the Masters purse may get raised, too, making potential payouts even larger.

Odds to win the Masters

Players Championship winner McIlroy is the betting favorite to win the Masters, thanks largely in part to his seven consecutive top-10 finishes. Johnson and Rose, who have both won tournaments in 2019, come in right behind McIlroy.

Woods’ odds at +1400 make him an intriguing betting option. Spieth and Fowler and +2000 could also be interesting picks.

Golfer Odds
Rory McIlroy +750
Dustin Johnson +1100
Justin Rose +1200
Tiger Woods +1400
Jon Rahm +1800
Justin Thomas +1800
Brooks Koepka +2000
Jordan Spieth +2000
Rickie Fowler +2000
Francesco Molinari +2200

Masters past winners

The Masters has featured a wide variety of winners over the last 10 years, save for Bubba Watson’s two victories in 2012 and 2014. Jack Nicklaus (6) has the most Masters victories of all time, while Woods (4) has the most of anyone in this year’s field.

Woods’ last victory came in 2005. He is also the most recent golfer to win back-to-back Masters. Nicklaus and Nick Faldo are the only other two to accomplish the feat, so Reed will have the opportunity to join even more elite company this year.
