2024 Masters Tournament: Predictions and odds for all LIV Golfers at Augusta National

Ten months ago, the PGA Tour announced a surprising merger in June 2023 that would inch it closer to and LIV Golf. However, as we approach the first major tournament of 2024, The Masters, it appears that the top players from both tours still see each other as separate entities, which raises many questions about their future together.

Last year, 18 LIV golfers participated in The Masters, and now 13 LIV golfers will join the field of 89 this year at Augusta National.

As part of the LIV roster at this year’s Masters, you’ll find Jon Rahm, the 2023 champion. After being spotted wearing a black letterman’s jacket with the LIV logo, Rahm joined the Saudi-funded tour in December 2023. The negotiations resulted in a deal estimated to be worth $500 million, more than the PGA Tour’s total $460 million purse in 2023.

Here are the predictions on which LIV Golfer could come out on top in the 2024 Masters.

2024 Masters Tournament LIV Golfers predictions

The Telegraph: I will go with Brooks Koepka

Tom Cary writes: “Scheffler is the clear favorite. But in the interests of variety, I will go with Koepka. Stone-cold killer in majors, has finished T-2, T-7, T-2 in his last three (non-injury-affected) Masters. And will still be hurting from last year.”

CBS Sports: Jon Rahm ranked second to win

Kyle Porter writes: “It always seemed obvious that he was going to win at Augusta National, but plenty of golfers have seemed like obvious winners at Augusta National and not gone on to win. Now, Rahm can play freely at a place where he has five top nine finishes in his last six starts and nothing worse than a T27 over the course of his career. He almost certainly has Seve Ballesteros and Jose Maria Olazabal’s two green jackets circled as numbers he would love to match or even surpass.”

The Augusta Chronicle: Dustin Johnson is best dark horse pick

Tyler Palmateer writes: “Dustin Johnson at +4000 is tough to beat. Johnson won the 2020 Masters, held in November due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Yes, he tied for No. 48 last year. But Johnson has five top 10 Masters finishes since 2015, including three inside the top four. Johnson won at LIV Golf’s Las Vegas Invitational earlier this season and placed fifth at Mayakoba.”

Action Network: Bryson DeChambeau

Joshua Perry writes: “There isn’t a ton of value in rehashing guys I’ve bet throughout the year with numbers that are long gone, but one play I like right now is Bryson DeChambeau at +3500 to win outright. He’s had a lot to say about Augusta in the past, and the results haven’t backed up his comments. This year, we’re getting a more under-the-radar DeChambeau. The form has been good on LIV Golf as he’s basically been a lock to top 10 every week. He has the length and the putting to play well here, so hopefully he’s learned from his mistakes in the past.”
