After months of anticipation, the 2014 Masters is finally here. Tiger Woods may not be in the star-studded field as he recovers from back surgery, but there are plenty of other fantasy options making the trip to Augusta. To help you draft this week, here are the top-30 fantasy golfers for the 2014 Masters.
Els has struggled at Augusta in recent years, but he still has two top-18 finishes here in the last four years. Don't forget about the super-veteran this week.
Westwood has performed horribly in recent weeks, as he has cracked the top-30 just once in the last five tourneys. The veteran will be a very risky pick this week.
Yang finished tied for 20th in 2012 and tied for eighth in 2011.
Fowler has made the cut at Augusta in all three of his career appearances. He is coming off a sixth place finish at the SHO and will be a decent late-round pick this week.
Mickelson has struggled at times this year, but he has still earned five top-20 finishes in eight tournament appearances. He won't be a top-tier option this week, but he will be worth grabbing inside the top-30 golfers.
Walker has 11 top-25 finishes on the year, including three wins. There are worse fantasy sleepers to gamble on this week in Augusta.
Schwartzel has eight top-17 finishes around the globe this year.
Stricker finished 20th here last year, 11th in 2011, 30th in 2010, and sixth in 2009.
Haas has 10 top-15 finishes on the year and he is consistently overlooked in the tourneys with bigger fields. He will be a strong second golfer to grab this week.
Oosthuizen finished second here in 2012 after losing in a playoff to Bubba Watson. The Ozzie will be a great sleeper pick this week in Augusta.
Furyk quietly has five top-23 finishes on the year, including a sixth place finish last week at the Shell Houston Open.
Johnson has four top-10 finishes on the year and the heavy-hitter will live on the fairways this week.
English is having a breakout fantasy campaign. He has six top-10 finishes, including a huge win at the OHL Classic. He will be a middle of the road option this week, though, with the star-studded field.
Stenson has three top-17 finishes in five events this year and is officially over his rough stretch.
Simpson has cracked the top-23 in eight tournaments this season. He is another mid-level option to keep an eye on, and considering that he will be wearing American flag pants, it shouldn't be too hard.
After a slow start, Dufner is starting to turn things around. The Duff-man has three consecutive top-14 finishes, including his ninth place finish at the WGC-Accenture Match Play.
Rose seems to be over his back injury, as he has two top-17 finishes in his last four tournaments. Consider him a top-15 fantasy option again.
DeLaet has five top-10 finishes on the year and the Canadian has matured into a legitimate fantasy option.
Spieth has four top-10 finishes on the year. The 21-year-old has made his money on the green, as he is currently third on the tour in putting (1.703) and sixth in birdies per round (3.89).
Mahan finished 12th at the Masters in 2012, eighth in 2010, and 10th in 2009.
Donald finished 25th at Augusta last year, 32 in 2012, fourth in 2011, 10th in 2007, and third in 2005. Donald's past success at the Masters makes him a savvy veteran worth reaching for.
Kuchar has cracked the top-13 in eight tournaments (stroke/match play) this season.
In McDowell’s seven stateside tournaments this year, he has finished inside the top-10 six times.
Day hasn’t been in a tournament since February due to a thumb injury and he has only participated in five events ton the year. Before the injury, though, Day had three top-nine finishes and a win at the WGC-Accenture Match Play.
Bradley heads to Augusta on fire, as he finished second at the API and third at the Shell Houston Open. Keegs has been outstanding this season and will have another top-10 showing on the big stage.
Garcia finished eighth here last year and 12th in 2012. The Spaniard will be one of the safest picks at the Masters this week.
McIlroy has finished inside the top-25 at Augusta three times throughout his career. He is having a brilliant season and will be worth a top-five pick in all formats.
Watson heads to Augusta with six top-10 finishes (stroke/match play) on the year. Bubba won the Masters back in 2012 and will be one for he first golfers off the board in every format.
Johnson has five top-six finishes on the year. He is near the top of every category on the tour and will be an elite fantasy option every tournament he turns in a card.
Scott is the defending champ at Augusta and he has cracked the top-eight at the Masters in three straight years. He will be a heavy favorite this week.
