US Masters Free Bets
The Masters at Augusta is one of the biggest events of the golfing year and we at FREEbets.org.uk are here to guide you through the best way to use your free bets on the tournament.
The golfing calendar at the start of the year is busy with events on all the main tours. However, the better players focus their practice and tournament play so they peak at the start of April and are well prepared for the first major of the season, the US Masters. Rory McIlroy is particularly keen to win the event as it would complete his career Grand Slam of each major only achieved by five players in the past.
How to use your US Masters free bets bet
As mentioned there can be plenty of value to be had by picking an unexpected winner at the Masters with many of the recent champions in Augusta certainly coming in that category. Very quickly after the immediate favourites do players reach prices of 28/1, 33/1 and upwards so it can be an ideal tournament to use your free bets on in a risk free environment.
Once you have made your pick, head over to your bookmaker of choice by clicking on any of the links on the right hand side of this page, register and follow the instructions for gaining your free bet.
Each bookie will have different terms and conditions on their free bet offers; these are either found on their page here at FREEbets.org.uk or on their website themselves.
Cash in your free US Masters bet by selecting the odds you want to back and placing the bet on the bet slip, it could not be simpler.
What should I use my US Masters free bet on?
Odds generally in golf tournaments are generous as there are so many potential winners which means you don’t have to spend much time identifying attractive prices. This is the case with the US Masters so there are plenty of each-way betting opportunities.
The standard bookmaker place terms for the Masters and most regular tournaments is one quarter the odds for a player to finish in the top five. So beating the bookies during the Masters is perfectly feasible.
Some of the popular Masters bets are related to the nationalities of players. You can bet on the nationality of the winner or the player to finish highest from a certain nationality. Backing an Australian winner gives a decent spread of bets, including Jason Day and Adam Scott. The market to be the Top Englishman is always interesting and will be even more so this year after Danny Willett's victory in 2016.
The market called “New Major Winner?” looks intriguing as in the past “Yes” has been odds-on whilst “No” is has been available at evens.
There will be a wide range of markets for the first major championship of the season. It is best to keep checking this page at FREEbets.org.uk during the build up to one the biggest events in the golfing year.
Markets on which you can use your free bet on the US Masters include:
- Winning nationality
- Overall winner
- Top 5 finish
- Top American

- Top Englishman
- Top Amateur
Gimme a short history of the US Masters...
The tournament is always held at the world famous Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. It is one of the most prestigious prizes in the game and this year the event takes place for the 80th time from April 7th to 10th. The Masters is the first of the four majors but the only one played on the same course every year. The US Open, Open Championship and US PGA Championship are played on a number of courses in rotation but the Masters is always played at Augusta.
Since 1949, a green jacket has been awarded to the champion, who must return it to the clubhouse one year after their victory. In most instances, the green jacket is only removed from the club grounds by a first-time champion.
A golfer who wins the event multiple times uses the same green jacket awarded upon his initial win (unless he needs to be re-fitted with a new jacket).
The Champions Dinner, inaugurated by Ben Hogan in 1952, is held on the Tuesday before each tournament, and is open only to past champions and certain board members of the Augusta National Golf Club. Beginning in 1963, legendary golfers, usually past champions, have hit an honorary tee shot on the morning of the first round to commence play.
These have included Fred McLeod, Jock Hutchinson, Gene Sarazen, Sam Snead, Byron Nelson, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Gary Player. Since 1960, a semi-social contest at the par-3 course has been played on Wednesday, the day before the first round.
Who has won the Green Jacket in the past?
All the greats of the game have won the US Masters. Multiple winners include Jack Nicklaus (six times), Gary Player (twice), Arnold Palmer (four times) and Tiger Woods (four times). However over the last few years some less expected names have been presented with the Green Jacket.
Since 2008 players such as Trevor Immelman, Charl Schwartzel and Bubba Watson have won the Masters. At the times they were all great players but not potential multiple major winners though Bubba has now won the event twice.
In recent years European players do not have an outstanding record in the Masters with just two winners from the continent in the past 20 years. However, will Danny Willett's success last year provide a springboard for further success?
Players born in the United States have won 59 times covering a group of 36 players. South Africans are second in the list with five wins and only one Australian, Adam Scott in 2013, has won the Masters. There are 17 multiple champions including nine players who have won two US Masters. Since 1983 13 Masters champions have been former winners, including Bubba Watson who won the event in 2012 and 2014.
