Betting Assessment

Geoff Ogilvy is clearly a top quality player, but apart from his US Open win in 2006, he has failed to set the world on fire in Major Championships. He has finished modestly in his three previous visits to the Masters, nonetheless the bookmakers believe he can play well here and make him a best price of 20/1 to win.
