2019 Masters sleeper picksApril 9, 2019 Golf News
Our Fantasy Golf expert Matthew Beedle runs down the differential players at this week's Masters
Looking for the players who could make the difference in your fantasy teams this week? We take a look at the 2019 Masters sleeper picks.
Form is a big factor heading into The Masters so finding good sleeper picks can be a rarity. The last five winners all won or finished second in the five weeks leading up to their victory at Augusta.
2019 Masters sleeper picks
There looked like there was a turn in form for Webb Simpson as he made a good defence of his Players Championship title but it was just his second top 20 since the Phoenix Open, a slump compared to his fabulous 2018 season.
He has a fairly good record at Augusta but is still to finish inside the top 10. A T20 last year was his best finish in seven Masters appearances.
After dislocating his ankle in last year’s Par 3 Contest Tony Finau battled to a top 10 with a fantastic final round of 66 on his Augusta debut.
The American isn’t on a terrible run of form and has posted top 25 finishes three times this season but he hasn’t had a top 10 since the QBE Shootout in September.

Jimmy Walker has a decent record at Augusta and is yet to miss a cut in his five appearances. He has posted two top 20s in his last two starts but his T30 at the Valero Texas Open was his best finish since the CJ Cup in October.
He’s only made two appearances at The Masters but Thorbjorn Olesen is also a player you might want to keep your eye on this week.
The Dane is making his first start at Augusta since 2014 but he impressed on his debut back in 2013 and posted a surprise top 10 finish.
He’s struggling for form at the moment and has missed three cuts in his last seven starts.
