Who’s going to emerge triumphant in the 2020 fall edition of The Masters? Who’s a dark horse candidate to either contend, or even pull off the upset to win the coveted Green Jacket? See what our ambassadors, a renowned group of Grand Strand golf industry professionals, have to say as they make their picks!

Checking in are Craig Chinn of Golf Trek, Jim Huntoon of Heritage Club, Chase McGraw of Coastal Golfaway, Jimmy Biggs of Pine Lakes Country Club, and Mark Rosenberg of Seaside Golf Vacations.



Craig Chinn:
Hey, guys. It’s MBGolfPro here in Myrtle Beach! I’m at World Tour where we have our own Amen Corner here, a replica of The Masters. My pick to win the masters is Bryson DeChambeau and for my sleeper pick I’m going with an underdog. I don’t know if he’s an underdog, but he’s an underdog to a lot. I’m going with Tiger Woods. Go Bryson, go Tiger, Myrtle Beach!

Jim Huntoon:
Hey there. Jim Huntoon here, golf course superintendent, Heritage Club. For my Masters pick this year, I’m going with Roy McIlroy. For my dark horse contender, I’m going to pick Charles Howell III.

Chase McGraw:
Hey, y’all. It’s Chase with Coastal Golfaway here. Play Golf Myrtle Beach, they asked us to give some of our favorites for this year’s Masters. Been waiting for a minute, been since April. I’m 28 years old and for the last 23 of those years, there’s that one guy I think is going to win it every year, and that’s Mr. Tiger Woods. I don’t think that’s going to change any this year. It’s going to be long, a little different. Man, he’s got a lot of experience. I think he can overcome it.

They also asked for us to give you guys a long shot. After looking at the betting odds, I see Francesco Molinari at +10,000. Got to think that’s a … You throw a couple of dollars there, maybe you get lucky. Who knows? And as always, I’ll be pulling for Dustin Johnson, a local guy here in Myrtle Beach. I hope you guys enjoy your Masters Week and I hope to see you guys soon in Myrtle Beach! Thank you!

Jimmy Biggs:
Hi, Jimmy begs from Pine Lakes Country Club. My pick for The Masters this year would be Justin Thomas. I like J.T., and a sleeper might be Matthew Wolff. The guy bombs it. That’s usually a good thing at Augusta.

Mark Rosenberg:
My pick for The Masters this year is Rory McIlroy. I think he’s finally going to win the Career Grand Slam after contending a couple of times and falling just a little short. For my sleeper, I’m going with Scottie Scheffler. Scottie’s just a rookie on tour, but he’s played some great golf, including shooting a 59 earlier in the season. I think he’s going to contend and I wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up in the Winner’s Circle.
