Texan Jordan Spieth Still Masters Favortite
Despite a winless 2018 season and mediocre results this year, former Longhorn Jordan Spieth has the fifth-best odds to win this weeks Masters at 16-1.
Thursday will be the sixth year Spieth will tee off at Augusta, and his five previous starts have been nothing but impressive. Only finishing outside the top ten (11th) once in 2017.
Winning it all in 2015 is one of the many highlights of his young career. But the following year is possibly his most devastating defeat. Heading into Sunday with a two-stroke lead, Spieth started the front nine hot and extended his lead to five. The back nine was a different story, with bogeys on ten and eleven then a quadruple-bogey on twelve, he was tied for fourth. Finishing second overall, many believe that moment still haunts him.
Finishing victoriously this weekend could be what gets the twenty-five-year-old back on track, and I'll be pulling for him. But if it doesn't work out, you can remember he's worth a hundred million and got married last fall, I think he'll be okay.
