The 2014 Masters is right around the corner, scheduled to begin Thursday at Augusta National Golf Club. This year’s tournament is wide open and features a diverse field of contenders, including last year’s champion Adam Scott. One such contender is Jason Day, who came close at Augusta in both 2011 and 2013. Here are five reasons why Day will win the 2014 Masters.
Day has missed the previous six weeks due to a left thumb injury, but he was playing well prior to the layoff, winning the WGC Match Play Championship in his last tournament appearance.
Day is currently ranked No. 4 in the world and is considered one of the better players on the PGA Tour. He has yet to win a major but seems primed to break through, perhaps even this week.
Day has already had some success at the Masters, finishing in a tie for second in 2011 and third in 2013. This could be the year.
In a fairly wide open field, Day is one of the top favorites according to most odds makers, coming in at 10-to-1 and 12-to-1 on many lists.
Day has not played competitively in six weeks because of the left thumb injury, but the layoff has helped considerably. According to Day, he is now pain-free and should be ready to go.
