The Masters 2018 Fantasy Sleeper Report
So here we are then: the first major of the calendar year, The Masters. As ever the great and the good will battle it out for the famous Green Jacket, and once again it looks set to be a highly competitive affair at Augusta National.
Each of the last ten champions have come from within the world’s top 30 in in the OWGR, but that’s not to say that sleepers and outsiders can’t get their have time to shine here: Danny Willett, Charl Schwartzel and Trevor Immelman have all tried the green on for size, and none of the trio can hardly be described as a ‘likely’ winner. Fans of long-priced jollies should not give up hope just yet!
Of course, whoever does win in Georgia this week will have earned it. This is a collection of the best golfers on the planet, who will take to the difficult Augusta layout with dreams of glory. Alas, only one can prevail.

This is the ultimate test of ball striking to ensure approaches land on the right tier, and it is a fascinating assignment as a result.
There are so many narratives this week that it is hard to know which is the main story. Can the comeback kings – Rory McIlroy, Bubba Watson, Phil Mickelson – continue their fine form? Will Justin Thomas win a second major? Can Jordan Spieth or Sergio Garcia return to the winner’s circle? Or can Dustin Johnson, bizarrely going under the radar somewhat, confirm his status as the best golfer on the planet?
It really is a fascinating week in store, and who knows: maybe we will see a surprise winner from lower down the betting market? Here are five options who could well get the job done:
