Who won the Masters last year?
Patrick Reed of the United States won the Masters Tournament in 2018. It was his first major.
Who’s the favourite to win in 2019?
Rory McIlroy comes into the event in great form and is currently the 7/1 favourite with the bookies.
Dustin Johnson (10/1) isn’t far behind and incredibly, Tiger Woods (14/1) is up there after a return to form in 2018.
Reed is a whopping 70/1 to win it back-to-back.
What is the Green Jacket?
One of the tournament’s many storied traditions, a green Augusta members’ jacket is awarded to the Masters champion each year.
The champion may keep the jacket for a year, but then it must be returned to Augusta Nations, where it is kept for the player to wear only while he is on the grounds of the golf club.
