2023 Masters Tips 

Hideki Matsuyama - 35/1

Hideki Matsuyama of celebrates with the Masters Trophy during the Japan Green Jacket Presentation Ceremony after winning the final round of the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club, Sunday, April 11, 2021.

World Ranking: 21st

Highest Masters Finish: 1st, 2021.

Our first Masters tip, Matsuyama is already a Masters champion after taking home the green jacket in 2021. However, he only had one tour win last year. Despite that, the Japanese golfer has two top-ten finishes out of nine events this year and given his experience on the course is a shoo-in for another this weekend. He's typically the most reliable each-way bet of any Masters so we had to include him.


Brooks Koepka - 25/1

Brooks Koepka plays a stroke from the No. 14 tee during Round 1 of the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club, Thursday, April 8, 2021.

World Ranking: 118th


Highest Masters Finish: Tied 2nd, 2019.

Admittedly Koepka has struggled for results in recent years, however, he's a four-time Major champion and always seems to find form come the big championships. Again this year he's done just that winning on the rogue Liv Golf Tour last weekend. Of all the LIV players, Koepka would appear to have the best form.

Will Zalatoris - 28/1

Will Zalatoris plays a stroke from the No. 2 tee during the final round of the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club, Sunday, April 11, 2021.

World Ranking: 8th

Highest Masters Finish: 2nd, 2021.


Zalatoris burst onto the scene at the 2021 Masters finishing second, he recorded another top-ten finish last year with T6 and he's in the world top ten. The 26-year-old plays Augusta effortlessly like it's his local par 3 course and if history proves anything the American will finish high. He's overcome illness endured during the World  Match Play that saw him lose seven pounds from his already slight frame.

Sahith Theegala - 80/1 

Sahith Theegala of the United States plays a stroke from a bunker on the No. 2 hole during practice round 1 at Augusta National Golf Club, Monday, April 3, 2023.

World Ranking: 30

Highest Masters Finish: Never Competed

Theegala might be heading out for his first Masters this weekend but he's one to keep an eye on. He's two top-ten finishes this year and recorded six last year including two top-threes, they include finishes at both the Genesis Invitational and the Phoenix Open two of the biggest calendar events.

Tom Kim - 50/1

Tom Kim of Korea plays a stroke from the No. 10 tee during practice round 1 at Augusta National Golf Club, Monday, April 3, 2023.


World Ranking: 19

Highest Masters Finish: Never Competed

Kim too makes his first Masters appearance this year. He comes in off the back of two top-six finishes in 2023 and three wins in 2022 as well as 9 top-ten finishes. Those wins put the 20-year-old alongside Tiger Woods as the only two golfers to win multiple PGA Tour events before their 21st birthdays in the last 80 years.

Patrick Reed - 40/1 

Masters champion Patrick Reed plays his stroke from the No. 2 tee during Round 3 of the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club, Saturday, November 14, 2020.

World Ranking: 70th

Highest Masters Finish: 1st, 2018.

Reed like Matsuyama already has already won the Masters. However he defected to the LIV golf tour where he's yet to record an individual win but finished fourth in Orlando last weekend as well as second in the Dubai Classic in January, he has top-ten finishes in all the Majors. Reed is a brilliant E/W Masters tip with a top-ten finish well within his grasp. Golf's villain will certainly be looking to make a statement this weekend.

Shane Lowry - 40/1

World Ranking: 23rd

Highest Masters Finish: Tied-3rd, 2022.

Lowry needs no introduction, he's one of Ireland's top sportsmen and he's already a major winner after his spectacular Open Championship win in Portrush. The Offaly man bagged five top-ten finishes and a win at the BMW PGA Championship last year. His spectacular short game should give him an innate advantage in getting around Augusta National. He spoke to Paul Kimmage about his many trips to Augusta this year. We hope he can replicate last year's form.

That's all our Masters tips for this weekend at Augusta National, here's hoping they come through now.

Stephen Ferris' tips

Ladbrokes’ ambassador bet of the week is Rory McIlroy at 6/1. Ferris believes that his friend and fellow Northern Irish man has the ‘dogginess’ and ‘determination’ to do well in Augusta. He can also do well in the bad weather conditions:

With the soft conditions, when there’s bad weather the strokes’ gain, I’m not saying windy weather I’m saying wet weather, Rory is right up there woth all the best.

Stephen Ferris’ second choice is 40/1 Tyrell Hatton. He claims that that decision is purely because Hatton ‘hates losing and not playing well’.

Tommy Fleetwood and Matthew Fitzpatrick are Ferris’ outsider. Fitzpatrick is 35/1 but he’s recently got back to the best level. Stephen Ferris’ said that Fitzpatrick ‘changed something’ to be up with the best golfers in the world:

He changed something, a little swing and he’s bombing up with Koepke and Rory [McIlroy] and all the big hitters.

Fleetwood is 33/1 but he’s ‘always there when the leaderboard goes up on Sunday’. Ferris believes that the English golfer always turns up for big occasions like the Masters.

Ferris has summed up his preview by saying that the leaderboard will change quite a lot during these Masters because of ‘the softness of the green’s and fairways': 

I think this leaderboard will chop and change so much because of the softness of the green’s, the softness of the fairways. Expect a few quirky pins as well just to try and throw the players because it will be target golf at one stage.
