Cameron Smith’s Masters Odds A Bet On Putting And Ability To Hit Greens

Cameron Smith is arguably the top putter in the world, and with the way he played through round one, it may actually be surprising that his odds aren’t even a little bit shorter.

Smith hit the greens in regulation (reaching the green in two or more shots less than par) on 14 of 18 holes on Thursday. For context, he hit the green in regulation 78% of the time compared to just 57% for the rest of the field.

If Cameron Smith plays up to his ability with the putter, golf bettors may be upset if they did not bet on him sooner.
