  • The best golfers in the world will be vying for the Green Jacket.

  • The backdrop of the battle between PGA Tour and LIV Golf Series players is adding to the intrigue.

Golf remains a sport dripping in history and tradition and arguably the most prestigious golfing event on the global calendar is The Masters. 

Held at the pristine Augusta National Club in Georgia, the Masters holds the golfing world in the palm of its hands each April and the 2024 edition promises to be compelling viewing for both punters and international betting sites

No golf course in the world can compete with the Augusta National when it comes to aesthetics and every player in the field in the 2024 Masters will be dreaming of etching their name into golfing folklore in 2024. 
The 88th edition of the event is set to get underway on April 11th, against the fascinating backdrop of two rival golfing tours looking to merge on a very public platform. 
Following months of discontent, it would seem that the PGA Tour and the LIV Golf Series are chasing a merger, something that would have been unthinkable 12 months ago and the Masters will provide players on both tours with a platform to impress. 
Rahm the Man 

A lot has happened in the life of Jon Rahm, since he won the 2023 Masters title at Augusta 12 months ago. 
The Spaniard was a hugely influential part of the European Ryder Cup winning team in Rome, as he stepped up from youngster to main man, driving his team over the finish line against the Americans. 
He then became arguably the biggest player to make the switch from the PGA Tour to the LIV Golf Series, a move that has encouraged a couple of his European team mates to follow suit. 
In his first major since joining LIV, Rahm will be out to prove a point and with a Green Jacket to defend, he could be one of the front runners again at Augusta. 
Sensational Scottie 

For all the talk surrounding the PGA Tour and LIV Golf, many punters and betting sites would be forgiven for slightly overlooking Scottie Scheffler for Masters glory in 2024. 
However, that approach would not be wise, as the world number one is very much back to his best this year, having already bagged two tournaments on the PGA Tour. 
Scheffler won the Green Jacket at Augusta back in 2022 and his playing style looks to be tailor made for conditions here, making him another huge candidate for Masters glory. 
New blood or old heads? 

Winning a Masters is seen as the pinnacle for many players and there seems to be no tried and tested formula for those chasing a Green Jacket. 
Some of the most exciting players on the planet will be lining up at Augusta this weekend, with the likes of Viktor Hovland, Sam Burns and Ludvig Aberg chasing their breakthrough major wins. 
Whilst older heads such as Brooks Koepka, Rory McIlroy and Hideki Matsuyama all have major titles in the bag, and they will feel they can challenge hard for another here. 

The Masters at Augusta always invokes a special emotion amongst golfing fans, punters and players, and the 2024 edition of the tournament promises to be no different. 
With a famous Green Jacket up for grabs, all of the best players in the game will be chasing glory here, whether they ply their trade on the PGA Tour or as part of the LIV Golf Series.
