The 87th edition of the Masters concluded on April 9 with Jon Rahm as the champion with a score of -12. Brooks Koepka surged into the lead after the second round and still held it after the third round concluded. The battle in the final round was essentially between those two, but Koepka bogeyed four of his first 12 holes. Rahm capitalized with two birdies and one bogey in that same stretch, which ended up being the ultimate difference.
Koepka tied with Phil Mickelson at 8 under par. Mickelson’s third-round score of 75 didn’t make him a legitimate factor on Sunday afternoon. But he still rebounded with a score of 65 in the final round. Jordan Spieth had a similar final-round surge to tie for fourth with Patrick Reed and Russell Henley at 7 under par.
The iconic tournament is a four-day event and one of the biggest highlights of the sports betting calendar. From the opening tee through to the final hole of play, the tournament presents a variety of options for bettors.
