Jordan Spieth favourite to win 2016 Masters but could he land a clean sweep of Major titles in 2016?
The 2016 Masters takes place between 7-10 April, with Jordan Spieth looking to build on an amazing 2015 which saw the young American come pretty close to a Grand Slam.
He landed his first Green Jacket at Augusta twelve months ago before winning the US Open. Fourth place followed in the Open Championship before second in the PGA Championship and the 22-year-old will be hungry for more.
While Spieth’s recent form hasn’t been particularly impressive, there’s a school of thought suggesting that the American is planning to come slowly to the boil for the major tournaments and the glory.
Spieth said: “Around major championships – I just need to take that model into the rest of the PGA Tour golf now – which is just stay away from all the outside influences, whether it’s TV, where you see yourself or it’s social media, whatever it may be, just do less of it and find something else to do, whether it’s reading or whether it’s discovering a new place, going out in your car that week, instead of just sitting around.
“Because then you’re tempted. It’s something certainly to work on but it’s nothing that’s different.”
Coral offer 250/1 that Spieth wins all four Majors in 2016, with those odds likely to crumble should the Texan win a second Green Jacket next month, with the world number one favourite to win the 2016 Masters.
Spieth is a best price 15/2 with Sky Bet to win the Masters, although Rory McIlroy could offer stiff competition and the Northern Irishman is an 8/1 chance with bet365 to break his duck at Augusta.
Jason Day is hovering around the same price, although the Australian’s participation remains in doubt after a nagging back injury could see him laid low for the short-term.
