LIV Golf power rankings: Ranking LIV golfers based on their 2024 Masters odds

Must read


Thirteen golfers on LIV Golf rosters will participate in this year’s Masters tournament. Which of them have the best chance to win?

Out of the 13 LIV golfers contending for this year’s green jacket, seven of them have won one before: Jon Rahm (won in 2023), Dustin Johnson (2020), Patrick Reed (2018), Sergio García (2017), Bubba Watson (2012, 2014), Charl Schwartzel (2011) and Phil Mickelson (2004, 2006, 2010).

Several of those players are among top contenders to win this year’s Masters. A few other LIV golfers who haven’t yet won a green jacket are also near the top of BetMGM’s latest odds leaderboard.

Here’s how all 13 LIV golfers participating in this year’s tournament rank by odds to win.

Masters 2024 power rankings: LIV golfer odds

1. Jon Rahm (+1200)

No real surprise here. Rahm won last year’s tournament and is among favorites to win it all again in 2024. The Spanish golfer is one of LIV’s most recent additions, having joined in December.

2. Brooks Koepka (+2000)

Koepka has gotten very close to winning this tournament twice before. He finished in second to Rahm last year by four strokes after also finishing in second in 2019. That year, he was tied with Dustin Johnson and Xander Schauffele just one stroke behind Tiger Woods. Koepka is sixth overall in odds to win this year’s green jacket.

3. Joaquín Niemann (+2800)

Niemann turned pro in 2018 at 19 years old. Now 25, Niemann has never finished in the top 15 of a major, though his 16th-place finish in last year’s Masters was the best in his career thus far. He tied with six other golfers at a final score of -2 at Augusta last year. After winning the LIV Golf tournament in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia in March, Niemann is eighth overall in Masters odds.

4. Bryson DeChambeau (+3300)

DeChambeau won the U.S. Open in 2020 but has never finished above 21st in the Masters, which he did in 2016. He just missed the cut last year after finishing at +4 over the first two days.

T-5. Dustin Johnson, Cameron Smith (+4000)

Johnson won the Masters in 2020 after tying with Koepka as a runner-up behind Woods in 2019. He’s looking for a second green jacket but has had a rough go in Augusta since his five straight top-10 finishes between 2015-2020. He missed the cut in 2021, finished tied for 12th in 2022 and ended the 2023 tournament at +8 after entering Saturday at -1.

Smith finished tied for second behind Johnson in the Masters in 2020 and finished in the top 10 in Augusta in 2021 and 2022. He has one major win – the 2022 Open Championship – but is still looking for his first green jacket.
