The Masters: Sleeper Picks 2021
We are well on our way into the month of April, but what is April without the Masters? It is that time of year and this years’ Masters are just hours away from tee-time.
While many submit their picks into golf pools or bets for the winner of this years’ tournament, some may be looking for a few sleeper picks in the masters 2021 tournament. I would like to share with you some of the ones I believe could be sleepers at Augusta.
Ian Poulter – England.
The 45-year old from England has the masters 2021 as a possible goal for the year. Many forget how good Ian can be once he gets going and fail to remember that he has managed to have 2 top-25 finishes in the last 2 masters appearances. Poulter’s accuracy off the tee is unreal, but his accuracy in knowing where to place the ball in the fairways at Augusta National is the scary and experienced game he has to display. Don’t be surprise if he manages to make another top 25 maybe even top 12 appearance this year.
Francesco Molinari – Italy.
Is it just me or does the dude look like Jimmy Garoppolo? Sorry, a little off track here but the resemblance is crazy!
Anyways, who wouldn’t love to see a comeback from this guy? Say Spieth is “unable” to win the Masters this year, wouldn’t you want Francesco to win it? The Masters tournament is known to be about breath taking moments and it’d be a miracle I would love to see happening as his last meltdown at the masters does not really display fairly the talent behind this Italian stud.
Marc Leishman – Australia
One of my favorite golfers to watch when he is in form. Marc can make it interesting at any point and it is his swing that drives curiosity for me. Personally, while he hasn’t been inform as of recent. Leishman is one the guys with the best knowledge of the course as he has managed to finish in the top 15 in the past 3 Masters starts. Could 2021 be the year he finishes top 10? Very well could be an opportunity for Marc to turn the page.
More Sleeper Picks!
Abraham Ancer – Mexico
Did you know he is ranked 22 in PGA tour world ranking? Shocking? Well, it really shouldn’t be. The 30-year old Mexican golfer might be a trendy sleeper in some cases but honestly should be one to keep an eye on. Last year in his first Masters, the Mexican was T-2 after 54 holes and while he stumbled in the last round, he still managed to make top 15. While he has gained a bit of experience with the Augusta National course, his form is currently in great shape and could be one to impress many.
Sebastian Muñoz – Colombia
Want someone who is a quick study? Well, you may have found your guy. The 28-year old Colombian has been fun to watch. Last year, the Colombian made his first appearance in the Masters and managed to make a good one. Sebastian place T19 last year and just last week showed to be in good form in Texas. Personally, could be someone worth the play.
Louis Oosthuizen – South Africa.
Man! If he didn’t shoot 75 in the 3rd round last year of the Masters, Louis could’ve secured himself a win in my opinion. The South African has been sensational to watch and he is one of those guys that competes well when the stage is set. Oosthuizen has a solid history at Augusta and could be one of the guys that many pass on by accident. Definitely one that should be taken advantage of.
Anyways, this is going to be another exciting Masters to watch and who knows what the course may present in terms of challenges as the weather could also play a big factor. The forecast presents an opportunity for rain and even some high chances for thunderstorms. Good luck to those competing and if you are betting, may the odds be ever in your favor.
