Retired professional golfer, golf analyst and social media star Paige Spiranac revealed her picks for the Masters. Although she was careful not to name a Masters winner, she did give golf fans some food for thought. as she listed her favourite bets at Betsperts.
"Happy Masters week everyone, I am so excited, this is my favourite week of the year," Spiranac said over on the Points Bet USA Instagram page, where she is an ambassador. Spiranac named Australian golfer Cameron Smith, who recently walked away the champion at the 2022 Players Championship, as the first-round leader on Thursday.
She also has high hopes for Billy Horschel to win his group (Sungjae Im, Si Woo and Paul Casey). Horschel's best finish in his previous seven starts at Augusta National was a tie for 17th in 2016. He hasn't cracked the top 30 in the past three.
Tiger all the way! Spiranac has made no secret of the fact that she believes Tiger Woods will make the cut. In a new video posted by Points Bet, the 29-year-old influencer is seen jumping up and down to celebrate Woods’ impending return.“I am so incredibly excited,” Spiranac said Tuesday - the same day Woods confirmed he’s planning to compete at Augusta National.
“I can’t contain my excitement. I cannot believe that Tiger Woods, who, over a year ago was in that horrendous car accident — we didn’t know if he was ever going to walk again, if he was OK, if he could ever play golf again — and now, he’s playing in the 2022 Masters”.
On Wednesday, she had a clear message about Tiger on Twitter: “Tiger doesn’t move the needle, he is the needle. Game time tomorrow." She also firmly believes that Woods "is going to win a Major." PointsBet Sportsbook has set a 70:1 winning ratio for the greatest golfer of all time, Tiger Woods.
Spiranac also believes Bryson DeChambeau will miss the cut after dealing with a few injuries in recent weeks. She also predicted Masters champion Adam Scott will finish in the top 10. Spiranac said she’s feeling good about her picks for the Masters this weekend.
“Feeling very confident about my picks this week,” she said in response to the video. The Masters kicked off on Thursday morning.
