Masters 2020 odds: Is this Bryson DeChambeau's green jacket to lose?

November 09, 2020

It has been 575 days from Tiger Woods’ dramatic Masters victory on Sunday of 2019, and though it’s felt longer, it is phenomenal to have visions of Augusta National dancing in our heads once again. The Masters is back, though in a new fall date, bringing with it some question marks.

How the 2020 fall Masters will play differently than an April edition is a topic you'll be tired of hearing about by Thursday, but it's worth discussing nonetheless. Though November in Augusta has the potential to be a lot colder than April, it appears the temperature will cooperate mostly. An early forecast looks like the low won’t dip below 60 in the mornings, and the highs might get up to 80.

What might not be cooperating, however, is the chance for precipitation. As we write this in the late morning on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday are predicted to be pretty wet. Of course, Augusta National’s Sub Air climate control system will pump much of the rain out of the fairways, but some moisture will remain, meaning the course should play longer than usual.

Keep an eye on the weather as Thursday approaches, as the weather tends to change quickly in this area of the country in the fall. One of the many ways this Masters will be different than others: The anticipation of how a bulked up Bryson DeChambeau, pumping out 201-miles-per-hour ball speed videos at Augusta’s range, will play Augusta has many on the edge of their seats. Bryson is currently a slight favorite over Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm, though DJ and Bryson are co-favorites at other books.

Though Bryson enters as the last major champion, running away with the U.S. Open at Winged Foot, Bryson will be dealing with a couple different factors at Augusta National. First, he won’t be able to use the green-reading books tour players typically use week to week. Second, Bryson declared that he will be using a longer, 48-inch shaft in his 5-degree driver, mimicking what a long-driver would use in competition. We’ll see how that goes! Finally, his putting hasn’t been great historically at Augusta National, but he has been one of the best putters on tour recently, ranking 10th last season in strokes gained/putting.

All of those uncertainties just add to what is one of the most intriguing Masters of our lifetime.

Here’s a complete list of odds for all players in the field.
