5 most anticipated match-ups of the 2018 Masters

5 most anticipated match-ups of the 2018 Masters

But even though there is a lack of players this year, I'm sure all golfers will be looking to prove why they received their invitation.

Some 86 players are already exempt to play in the opening men's major of the year, live on Sky Sports, with the only available place in the field going to the victor in Houston this week.

Phil Mickelson is playing his best golf for five years and the veteran lefty will want to keep things ticking over before his attempt to win a fourth green jacket. Keep in mind that there have only been three back-to-back winners in Masters history: Jack Nicklaus ('65-'66), Nick Faldo ('89-'90) and Tiger Woods ('01-'02).

Day's best finish at The Masters came seven years ago, when he finished two shots behind surprise victor Charl Schwartzel, and while he has a win and a second place finish on the PGA Tour this season, it's exceedingly hard to predict Day's week-to-week form.

"It's a long shot to come here and win, but hopefully I'll play well and see what happens".

"For some reason I'll probably have more adrenaline and be more excited to get going out there, no matter how many times I play there, I always get so excited to go", Thomas said Sunday of Augusta National.

Hideki Matsuyama is going to win a major eventually, but his play hasn't been especially inspiring since January. Now he is the world No 5 with three wins, four other top fives and just two finishes outside the top 10 in his last 11 events.
