The third and final golf major to be played this year will be the 2020 Masters Tournament, and Augusta, Georgia, will provide a suitable backdrop on which to end such a chaotic calendar.
In short, it seems only a matter of time until Xander Schauffele wins his maiden major, and there’s no reason he can’t join the trend of young Americans breaking that duck in 2020. Collin Morikawa did it at the PGA Championship, Bryson DeChambeau did it at the U.S. Open; now it’s on Schauffele to turn his near-miss moments into a win for the ages.
The 27-year-old’s +1600 price at Caesars hints at his quality, the kind of odds one might expect of a former winner at Augusta, but then Schauffele did tie for second at last year’s tournament.
He’s finished sixth or higher in six of his 13 Grand Slam start—three in six since the start of 2019—and this could be the moment he cracks the code.
