Scottie Scheffler 9/2 to win US Masters after Players Championship victory

Following his victory at the 2024 Players Championship, we have priced up Scottie Scheffler at 9/2 to win the upcoming US Masters at August National.

Scheffler was in sublime form in the final round at TPC Sawgrass as he overcame a record five-shot deficit to win by one shot from fellow Americans Xander Schauffele, Wyndham Clark and Brian Harman.

The world number one even overcame a neck injury which required treatment prior to the third round, as he won the 50th edition of the flagship tournament on the PGA Tour.

As a result, Scheffler has become the first man to successfully defend the Players Championship, following his five-stroke triumph over England's Tyrrell Hatton is last year's event.

After an imperious eight-under 64 saw him collect the $4,500,000 winner's prize in Florida, attention now turns to the Masters where he is currently the 9/2 favourite.

Scheffler claimed his maiden major title at Augusta back in 2022 and he will be hopeful of securing the green jacket again this year after winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational and the Players Championship in successive weeks.

He is yet to pick up a second major trophy after a number of near misses including tying for second at the 2022 US Open and the 2023 PGA Championship, but he looks set to be the man to beat in Georgia this April.

bet365's Steve Freeth said: "Scheffler looked the obvious pick coming into the tournament having won the Arnold Palmer a week earlier as well as winning the Players the year before – the only slight negative was that nobody had managed to go back-to-back at Sawgrass.

“Step forward Scheffler, who went as big as 33/1 in-play before overcoming a five-shot deficit in the final round to lift the trophy once again, despite the need of a physio between holes on Friday.

“He really is a pain in the neck for bookmakers!”

As well as coming in from 6/1 to 9/2 to win the Masters, Scheffler's price to win all four majors in 2024 has also shortened from 200/1 to 66/1.
