Fleming Golf Masters Tips
Get your hooks into the cash for the Augusta spectacular
Words: Nick Fleming
The Masters – the year's first major and one of the truly great events. Won last year by Sergio Garcia (tipped by yours truly!) Most bookmakers paying out each way on top 10 including Betfair exchange. If you have a few accounts shop around. This week I am advising each way top 10 with a few more selections than normal.
It was dramatic stuff at last Sunday's Houston Open with Ian Poulter holing a monster put to force a playoff which he won. It took me back to the great Medina Ryder cup fight back, he gained entry into this week's Masters and surely he must be high on the list to represent Europe in Ryder Cup?

Attribute power coupled with great touch
1 pt ew Justin Rose 17/1 He lost in the play off last year and he seems more reliable than most of the household names.
1 pt ew Phil Mickelson 20/1 I have formed the distinct impression that Phil used last week as practice for the this week's Masters. He loves this event more than any other, has won it three times but not since 2010.
1 pt ew Sergio Garcia 35/1 Last year's winner continues in fine form, I am pleasantly surprised at his generous price?
1 pt ew Matt Kutcher 64/1 He always contends well at the Masters, he is also super consistent and played some great golf last week!!
1 pt ew P Casey 27/1 He has always played this course well and usually contending on last day, now that he's won at Copperhead 3 or 4 weeks ago it should give him more belief??
1/2 pt ew Kevin Chappell 149/1 Tee to green this American as good as anyone!! He tends to play well at Augusta, at these odds we need an interest.
1/2 pt ew Thomas Pieter's 89/1 I really am following this Belgium over the cliff!!! he seems to perform well at the tough courses!
1/2 pt ew Alex Noren 59/1 He missed the cut last year but surely he's a better player now ?? he keeps hitting the cross bar!!
1/2 pt ew Louis Oosthuizen 79/1 Under achieving South African who likes Augusta he lost in play off to Bubba Watson in 2012 and continues to play this course well.
Don’t forget ew top 10 places, good luck
