The Masters 2022 Predictions
Competition for the prestigious green jacket is as tough as ever in 2022. Tiger Woods is teeing up with five Masters wins — the most of any current player — but his 17-month hiatus from events will surely be detrimental. Justin Thomas, Si Woo Kim, Brooks Koepka, and Jon Rahm are a few golfers with a chance to win, but, as usual, it’s anyone’s game.
