2024 Masters One & Done Picks (OAD)

It's the best week of the year! The Masters is here, and it remains a tradition like no other, just like nailing our Masters One & Done Picks (OAD).

The best part about the Masters is how simple the handicap is. Simply put, a golfer needs to be elite in every aspect of his game to win a green jacket. It is no fluke that the player in the best form who checks every box from tee to green wins the event on an annual basis.

While course history is also very telling at Augusta, we will take a look at the golfers in the best form from tee to green while considering ownership to allow you to cash in on your Masters One & Done pool.

Safe Masters One & Done Picks (OAD)

Jordan Spieth +2200

Some things are inevitable, and Jordan Spieth at Augusta National Golf Club is one of them. The 2015 Masters champion has posted great results at Augusta with various levels of form coming in. Over the weekend at the Valero Texas Open, Spieth posted his best approach week of 2024 and one of his best showings since 2021. It was also his best week in terms of Strokes Gained: Off the Tee since last May!

Spieth spoke very highly and confidently of himself during the week in Texas, which is a great sign because he will say how he is feeling. The driver has been on another level, and he has gained distance over the last year. From time to time, he loses a drive wide, but that will not be an issue around Augusta National's wide fairways.

From there, I expect Spieth to lean into his confident iron play. He is one of the most creative and elite short-game players in the world, which is a massive differentiator at Augusta. Spieth is an excellent selection with a massively high floor in your Masters One & Done pool.

Contrarian Masters One & Done Picks (OAD)

You may be wondering, "Why are we not going to use someone from LIV Golf? This is one of our only chances to use them!"

That is exactly what everyone is thinking, and that is what every one will do. Going against the grain and being different is the name of the game if you want to win your One & Done pool. There is surely a nonzero chance that the LIV players do not have a great week as they have not faced a test like this in months.

I am not hating on LIV Golf or saying they do not have a chance, but avoiding those golfers in Masters pools is a great way to get different.

Min Woo Lee +8000

Min Woo Lee burst onto the major championship scene at the 2022 Masters when he tied for 14th. He has shown signs of greatness on the PGA Tour over the past few years but has also been inconsistent.

With that being said, the style of golf at the Masters suits him best. He will be free to launch his cannon off the tee as Augusta National benefits the bombers with its wide fairways.

His approach play has a relatively low floor, but so many golfers will miss greens and be forced that scramble that the course favors the better scramblers. Lee is an elite around the green player and will surely chip in at some point this week. When driving and short game are important, let Min Woo Lee cook.

Cameron Young +5000

Cameron Young is the ultimate contrarian play. At this point of his short career, he is viewed as a loser and is not a fan favorite. At the end of the day, a golfer can only be labeled as such if he finds his way to the top of the leaderboard at a high rate, and that is what Young does.

How hilarious would it be for Young to disappoint the masses for three years only to break through on the biggest stage in golf!

Looking at the numbers, he is in the best ball-striking form of his career. Young is also one of the most elite total drivers on the PGA Tour with massive upside with his irons, and he has putted tremendously here last year — which is significant because that is usually the weakness of his game. He also finished in a tie for seventh last year at Augusta, so he has a some positive course history as well after missing the cut in his debut in 2022.

The only thing that is stopping him is himself. Young has the talent to win this event, and selecting him in your One & Done pool will be very different and give you extreme leverage.
