2011 US Masters Odds:  Top English Group

In addition to the 2011 US Masters odds to win overall, Bookmaker.com was featuring odds on each of the different country breakdowns, including the English Group.

The odds of winning the various country groups tend to be better than trying to determine who will win overall from a field of several dozen.

In the English group of the US Masters we had Lee Westwood as the small 2/1 favorite with three other golfers closely competing:  Luke Donald at 3/1, Paul Casey at +350 and Justin Rose at +350 (pays $35 for every $10 bet). 

Westwood was ranked World Number One from October 2010 through February 2011 and has won tournaments on every major continent. 

“I’ve always been fairly aggressive and gone at a lot of flags, probably more than I should have done in the past.  And it is a golf course you have to be very strategic on and play patiently,” the favorite Westwood said on Tuesday.

Luke Donald in January 2007 was briefly ranked the number one European golfer and, in February, reached a career high ranking of three as a result of his win at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. 

"My first couple of years on tour I was just trying to make enough money to stay on tour, money was an issue. But this is my 10th season, and the only thing I'm thinking about is picking up trophies,” Donald said. 

"For a number of years I've been in the world's top 20, been a good player in the Ryder Cup, been very consistent throughout but I hadn't won a tournament for five years in the US. It was disappointing for my fans, but more so for me. So it was nice to win again and know all that hard work I'd been putting in had paid off."

Paul Casey and Justin Rose were neck and neck among the oddsmakers. 

In 2009, Casey achieved the highest position, third, in the Official World Golf Rankings.  His best result in a US Masters came in 2007 where he finished 10th

Justin Rose could easily be thrown into the South African Group, since he was born in that country, but Rose has a residence in London, England.  Rose moved to the UK when he was just 5 years old.  He finished 5th in the 2003 US Masters Tournament., his highest placement.  Rose burst to prominence at The Open Championship in 1998.  He consistently comes in among the top 20 favorites to win with oddsmakers for each Major. 

Elsewhere, Ian Poulter, who has been among the bigger favorites to win various Majors in recent years, came in with 6/1 odds of finishing top of the English group. 

Ross Fisher would pay out $1400 for every $100 bet finishing on top of that group.
