The Masters: What will happen in 2014?

News & Tour

Our team make their predictions for the 2014 Masters

Dan Murphy

Winner: Rory McIlroy

Top Euro: Sergio Garcia

Top Brit: Lee Westwood

What will happen: Westwood and Garcia will have us all fooled again and be right in contention come the weekend. Kuchar will finish in the top 10. So will Snedeker.

What won’t happen: Either of Sergio or Lee actually winning – they won’t putt well enough to. Again.

Outsider to go well (must be at least 66/1): Francesco Molinari

Mark Townsend

Winner: Adam Scott

Top Euro: Henrik Stenson 

Top Brit: Ian Poulter 

What will happen: Tiger Woods’ absence will be debated non-stop from Monday to Thursday morning – will he, won’t he beat Jack? – and then barely mentioned again once other people start hitting a golf ball.

What won’t happen: The pin will be front left on Sunday, Arnold Palmer’s drive will be measured on TrackMan and Lee Westwood’s putting stroke will work like a dream.

Outsider to go well: Louis Oosthuizen
We will see Tiger’s chip in at 16 from 2005 at least 15 times (a day) on TV James Savage

Winner: Rory McIlroy

Top Euro: Sergio Garcia

Top Brit: Luke Donald

What will happen: We will see Tiger’s chip in at 16 from 2005 at least 15 times (a day) on TV. Bubba Watson will get emotional in any interview. The leaderboard will have a ‘Ryder Cup feel’ throughout. 

What won’t happen: A play-off. Phil Mickelson electing to ‘take his medicine’ from the trees and pine straw. Tiger Woods to feature as a guest commentator.

Outsider to go well: Victor Dubuisson.

James Tompkinson

Winner: Jason Day

Top Brit: Rory McIlroy

Top Euro: Sergio Garcia

What will happen: Ian Poulter’s chances will be talked up in the lead up to the tournament before he falls away and ends up somewhere near the cut line after the second day. 

What won’t happen: The winner of the par-3 tournament winning the Green Jacket on Sunday evening. It has never happened before and won’t happen this year.

Outsider to go well: Marc Leishman
