SportsLine's proven model ran 10,000 simulations of the 2021 Masters and came up with a surprising leaderboard
With warm, windy and dry weather at Augusta National Golf Club in recent weeks, the 2021 Masters is expected to feature some of the firmest greens we've seen in recent history. After Dustin Johnson blitzed Augusta to shoot a record 268 last November, he'll encounter tougher conditions this week. Even without the legendary Tiger Woods, who is recovering from a serious car accident, a loaded 2021 Masters field will attack one of the most iconic venues in sports.

The model had him in the top five from the start and McClure's best bets included Garcia winning outright. He also finished profitable at the U.S. Open, nailing two of his best bets, including a +1100 top-five bet on Matthew Wolff.

In all, the advanced computer model has also nailed a whopping six majors entering the weekend, including Patrick…
