Dustin Johnson Masters Picks
Dustin Johnson (#1 Rank in World) – +850 to Win
What can you say about Dustin Johnson that even the casual fan doesn’t know?
He has risen to stardom in the last handful of seasons, but may be playing the best golf of his entire career in this shortened and jumbled season.
DJ’s 2020 resume is very impressive. In just 17 tournaments played, he has finished in the top 10 ten different times, and has made the cut 14 times.
What’s even more impressive is the fact he has finished no worse than 6th place in his last six tournaments, dating all the way back to August 6th.
During those six tournaments, he accumulated two 1st place finishes (including the TOUR Championship) and three 2nd place finishes. He also won the Travelers Championship back in June.
Johnsons most recent tournament was just last week at the Vivint Houston Open where he placed 2nd after not competing for nearly two months due to Covid and simply taking some time off.
A key component to watch with DJ is his first round score. In all three of his tournament victories this season, he shot sub 70 in round one. The exact opposite is true with all of his other top 10 finishes, shooting above 70 on the first day in all but one of them.
As the current number one golfer in the world he is the second favorite to win the Masters at +850 odds.
