Ernie Els

Ernie Els

South African golfer, who has won three Major's in his illustrious playing career and despite suffering a dip in form over the past few years looks to be bang in form heading to Augusta. He has never managed to win the Masters with two second places his best performances at Augusta, he has missed the cut the last three years and will want to improve on that in 2010. He is being well backed in the US Masters Odds and that understandable given his excellent recent run of results in the build up to the Masters.

Career Form

Ernie ElsErnie Els needs little introduction, he has been and remains one of the best golfing talents the world has ever seen. The 39 year old South African is a winner of three Major Titles in addition to his many other professional titles. Ernie turned professional in 1989 and has played in every US Masters Betting since 1994, finishing runner up twice, in 2004 and 2000. He has had a further four top ten finishes in this Tournament, one that he is desperate to win. In recent weeks he has come into some cracking form with a win in the WGC event at Doral followed up with a great performance in the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Ernie has so close to winning in 2004 but lost by one stroke to two time winner Phil Mickelson. Although having missed the cut for the last three seasons, Ernie still has a great chance to win this year and his odds in the should be closely monitored. He looks to be in his best form for a number of years and will be well backed to add to his three Major victories.

Betting Assessment

This will be the sixteenth time the big South African has attempted to win a Green Jacket and it is becoming increasingly more difficult for him to do so. He has slipped out of the top ten in the world rankings and currently lies in 16th position. There is no doubt that he has the ability, he even plays the Augusta National course very well when in form, but it is difficult that his most competitive days are behind him. He is a 20-1 chance in the US Masters Betting which just about reflects his chances of winning and has to have a chance.
