April is a special time for golfers and the build up to The Masters always tugs at the heartstrings especially if you haven’t picked a golf club up since you put them in the cupboard last September. The bright green fairways of the Augusta National golf club with its azaleas in full bloom and that old white colonial clubhouse signal not only that spring is here but also the first major championship is upon us once again.

The Dr Alister MacKenzie designed course never cesses to inspire golfers of every generation and come Sunday afternoon it will throw up a worthy champion to don the green jacket, no doubt after some major twist and turns across the four days, with Amen Corner playing a major part in those proceedings.

When Jack Nicklaus was asked about The Masters being the easiest of the four majors to win he replied "Easiest major to win? I suppose it probably is." With its restrictive field and past champions getting a lifetime invite to tee it up every April, I feel it is. So with that in mind here are my picks for this year tournament.

My tips to win:

The player to beat this year is Dustin Johnson 6/1 – with BetFair – who become the first player ever to win all WGC events by taking the WGC Dell Match-play two weeks ago and after finally getting the bridesmaid monkey off his back by winning the US Open last year, he now knows how to get it over the line in the biggest tournaments. Dustin has also found a new mental strength – although he is still prone to zoning out which was evident at the WGC match-play – not taking driver on every hole, playing more strategically and working hard on his short game have now made him the complete player.

After recording his most amount of birdies during one tournament at last weeks Shell Houston Open Rickie Fowler 28/1 – with BetFair – comes into this week in buoyant mood with three Top 5 finishes from his five starts – which includes a win at the Honda Classic. Rickie came into The Masters in great form last year but shot an opening round of 80 that sealed his fate. I don’t think he will make the same mistake this year and I expect him to be in the thick of it as they hit the back nine come Sunday afternoon.

After Justin Rose 30/1 – with Bwin – finished runner-up at the Sony Open in Hawaii – his first PGA tournament of the year – I did feel this could be a big year for the Englishman. It has now been four years since Justin lifted the US Open trophy on Fathers Day and with his consistency he should have added to that major win. A new putting stroke was on display at last weeks Houston Open – where he had another Top 15 finish – could just be the key to finally adding to his solitary major victory.

My each-way tips

Henrik Stenson 33/1 – with Bwin – may have missed the cut at last weekends Shell Houston Open but his season has been all geared to peaking this week and having finally won his major last year at the Open Championship the Swede will be looking to add to that tally as soon as possible. Henrik has had a bit of a love/hate affair with Augusta but over the last four years has found some consistency making it inside the Top 25 each year and although he has never really challenged I think that may change this year.

I tipped Louis Oostuhizen 66/1 – with 32Red – the year he lost out in a play-off to Bubba Watson and strangely enough at these very odds. I do feel its time the South African put that particular ghost to rest. Having predictably missed the cut the following year after that blow to the solar plexus, Louis hasn’t been outside the Top 25 at Augusta since. Its been a strange year for Oostuhizen there have been Top 5 finishes on both the European and US Tours but its all not quite clicked into place but I have a feeling it will this week.

My outside tip:

I was surprised to see past champion Charl Schwatzel 80/1 – with SportingBet – this far down the betting odds especially with a couple of Top 20 finishes in recent weeks. The South African may not be setting the world on fire at the moment, but someone who’s golf game isn’t in bad shape and knows how to win here and with a limited field, he has to be worth a pound each-way punt at these odds.

As always good luck
