Although Wolff has not won any Major Championships, he is a Haskins Award recipient, placed second in the 2020 US Open, and T4 in the 2020 PGA Championship.
Heading into the final round of the US Open, Wolff had a lead over the eventual winner and now favorite to win the Masters, Bryson DeChambeau. It is not farfetched to expect a redemption story for Wolff this year with his consistent play.
This is further evidence of why his longshot odds to win are so appealing. He may be the most poised golfer to pull the upset.

In addition to Wolff’s +4000 odds, there are several key underdogs to look at if you are looking to partake in longshot betting for the big event. PGA Tour bettors have no shortage of action for the Masters and the longshot odds are appealing.
Longshot Masters Betting
Cameron Smith at +10000 is one sleeper that longshot bettors should look at. Smith has won two PGA Tour’s, two European Tour’s, and two PGA Tour of Australasia. He has done everything outside of winning a Major Championship.
The young golfer has shown consistency in all of his events. He placed T5 in the 2018 Masters Tournament as well and has gotten better as a golfer since.
These longshot odds should be appealing to underdog bettors looking for an upset.
Another sleeper to look into is Rickie Fowler at +5500. In his last three trips to the Masters, Fowler placed 9th, 2nd, and 11th.
Although he has yet to win a Major Championship, Fowler has been extremely close on several occasions, hosting 11 top 10 finishes in Majors Champions.
This could be the season that he shocks everyone and comes out on top.
Longshot bettors should be tempted to lean in on Fowler while his odds are so good. The 2020 Masters will be a major event for golfing fans and golf bettors alike. Will there be a major upset?
