So what to make of the 85th Masters...
Hideki Matsuyama took the coveted Green Jacket, set up thanks to a great round on Saturday (a 7-under-par 65) that saw him burst four shots clear of the field.
He tried hard to lose that advantage on Sunday, with a none too convincing back-nine, but by then he'd done enough to crawl over the line and land a first Major title.
But even though Matsuyama did have past form at Augusta, and was priced accordingly, the Japanese player wasn't an obvious pick to become champion. Winless for four years on the PGA Tour, most of the stats and trends you care to mention, that provide a photo-fit image of a typical Masters winner... Matsuyama failed on most counts.
Sometimes stats don't count for much!

-6 Jon Rahm (+1200)
-6 Marc Leishman (+10000)
In terms of our outright winner bets, our fate over the weekend, rested full square with Justin Thomas.
He played well enough in Rounds 1 and 2, but come Saturday a triple-bogey 8 on the 13th in Round 3 put paid to his chances... up to that point Thomas had looked a live runner in the outright market.
So a disappointing tournament, for sure, I make no bones about that, but one that we will bounce back from ASAP.
And we get the chance to do exactly that this week.
There are two tournaments for the Golf Insider to start work on... the AUSTRIAN OPEN on the European Tour, and the RBC HERITAGE on the PGA Tour.
As per usual, I expect to have the first of the information through in time for our regular Tuesday update.
