US Masters 2015

With the 2015 US Masters less than two weeks away, some of the more fancied contenders are beginning to show the kind of form that will put them in contention for the coveted Green Jacket.

With victory in the Texas Open on the weekend, Jimmy Walker is in red hot form and looks certain to carry on the great run he had in majors in 2014. Tied for 8th last year at Augusta National, Walker has the all round game needed to be in the running late on Sunday in the year’s first major.

Last year’s runner up, Jordan Spieth is again hitting form at just the right time. Victory in the Valspar Championship in the middle of March and a second place finish to Walker at this week’s PGA event will surely have the 21 year old dreaming of going one better in 2015. In late 2014, Spieth was the standout golfer on tour, playing impeccable golf and cementing himself as the most exciting young golfer in the world.

Tournament favourite Rory McIlroy looks most likely to lead the European charge, with The Masters being the last piece of the puzzle for the Irishman to complete the grand slam of majors. Australia’s 2013 Masters Champion, Adam Scott, and the man who has come so close in the past, Jason Day are both huge chances to claim a second Masters Championship for Australia

With so many other great players vying for their own piece of history, this year’s tournament promises to deliver all the excitement and drama we come to expect from the Masters.
