Golf: Cameron Smith peaking for Masters tilt

Cameron Smith has set his sights on glory at the Masters next month and says confidence is high heading towards the first major of 2024.

Adam Scott is the only Australian to have pulled on the famous green jacket at Augusta, and Smith is hoping to join him.

Scott can be backed at 81.00 to win another Masters title in 2024, but it is Smith that remains Australia’s best hope at 26.00.

The Queenslander looks to be peaking at just the right time, and could be right in the mix to add a second major championship to his CV.

Smith is not the only hope as Jason Day and Min Woo Lee, along with Scott, will all start the Masters with lofty ambitions.

Let’s take a look at how the Aussies are shaping up with Augusta just around the corner.

Cameron Smith

Smith looks to be hitting form at just the right time with the Masters fast approaching.

The Open Champion put in his best performance of 2024 when just missing out at the latest LIV Golf event in Hong Kong.

Smith started the day six shots off the lead but made his way through the field to force a play-off with Abraham Ancer and Paul Casey.

It was Ancer that came out on top in the play-off, but Smith took a lot of positives from the performance and looks to be in good shape.

Smith, who has four top-10 finishes at the Masters in the last six years, says he is delighted with his build-up to the tournament.

He has played more golf heading into it, and still has LIV Golf Miami to come before the first major of the year.

Smith says the Miami event will be the perfect tune-up opportunity for the Masters, and the timing could not be better.

Jason Day

Day, who also has a major to his name after winning the PGA Championship in 2015, appears to be in good form heading to the Masters.

He was the best-placed Australian at the recent Players Championship, which is widely regarded as the ‘fifth major’ in world golf.

Day finished on six under, tied for 35th, and can take heart from his performance over the four days. He can be backed at 36.00 to win the Masters.

Adam Scott

Australia’s only green jacket holder finished just a couple of shots behind Day on four under at the Players Championship.

It was a much-improved performance on the Arnold Palmer Invitational, where he missed the cut when finishing five over after two rounds.

Min Woo Lee

The youngster shaped up better at the Arnold Palmer Invitational when finishing tied for 44th.

Lee was also tied for 54th at the Players Championship, and is currently priced at 51.00 to win the Masters.
