The 2024 Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Course is coming up next week with the First round starting on April 11th and the Final round crowning our champion on April 14th. Taking a look back on the previous tournaments, some notable names stick out and will dominate the competition.

One name that consistently appears as the winner or top 10 finisher is Scottie Scheffler. Scheffler recently won the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players Championship this March. He also tied for second place in the Houston Open. Scheffler has opted out of playing in the Valero Texas Open that is currently playing April 4th through April 7th for some much needed rest before The Masters. He is currently first place in the PGA Tour World Ranking.

Wyndham Clark and Scottie Scheffler would be an interesting pairing to see at The Masters. Clark placed second twice against Scheffler, once in The Arnold Palmer Invitational and again in The Players Championship. Although, Clark trumped Scheffler in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am with Clark winning and Scheffler placing 6th. Clark’s first recorded PGA Tour win was the 2023 Wells Fargo Championship and following that, he won the 2023 US Open. He is currently ranked fourth place in the PGA Tour World Ranking.

One sleeper-player to look out for during the tournament is Min Woo-Lee of Australia. He turned Pro in 2019 and has been making his presence in the golf world known. Min Woo-Lee has a large following on his social media platforms for his charismatic personality as well as his finesse in chipping and driving long bombs. He is ranked 13th for average driving distance. Min Woo-Lee tied for 14th in his first Masters appearance, last year he missed the cut in the second round. This year he has one top 10 finish and two top 25 finishes out of the seven events he has participated in. Min Woo-Lee is currently ranked 32nd place in the PGA Tour World Ranking.

The playing field looks promising and as time winds down to the first round, we’ll see what other players emerge as potential threats to top players as the Valero Texas Open wraps up on April 7th.
