It’s time to continue a tradition unlike any other with the 2019 Masters.
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.
Patrick Reed, the 2018 champion, will be one of the big stories as he tries to keep his green jacket for a second straight year, a feat accomplished by only a select few in the past.

With landmarks that include Amen Corner and Magnolia Lane, Augusta National has played host to the Masters every year since the tournament’s inception in 1934. It’s the only major that has the same home course every year.
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.
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.
