The US Masters has been at the centre of Australian golf’s greatest heartbreak and triumph for decades.
We watched as our invincible world number one, Greg Norman, continued to fall agonisingly short as Augusta swallowed him whole and left him with the tag of a choker. Then, we were there two decades later when Adam Scott dramatically reached the summit, signalling his arrival in Australian sporting folklore.
The mythical, picturesque surrounds of the Augusta National Golf Club will attract the game’s greatest names again this week and our focus is on the group of Australians that will be chasing the green jacket.
Only one Australian has ever won the US Masters — Adam Scott in 2013.
Scott, currently ranked 29th in the world, will lead a team of four Aussies looking to etch their name into golfing history that also includes Jason Day, Marc Leishman and Cameron Smith.
So, let’s take a look at all the best betting for the Aussies and find value for punters.

Best Aussie odds for the 2019 US Masters

Like they have for almost 10 years, Jason Day and Adam Scott are well-represented by punters and will be given every chance to take home the green jacket this weekend.
Augusta, which will reward long, accurate driving off the tee, could also see Mark Leishman and Cameron Smith come well into contention if the duo are able to match a strong long game with composed putting.
Adam Scott may be coming back from injury, but has started 2019 in solid fashion and has seen this course bring out the best in his game before, while Jason Day could be ready to take his game to the next level.

The bookmakers have found it difficult to split the Aussies in this market.
Jason Day has battled his fair share of personal and professional challenges over the last few years, but if there’s one thing we’re sure of, he is as hungry now than he ever been to win the US Masters and the course suits his game.
Day has finished inside the top five twice and inside the top 10 a number of times. If he is putting well, not only should he beat out the Australian field, but he could provide serious value to win the whole thing at $34.
