2022 Masters Leaderboard

The 2022 Masters leaderboard has been released‚ and it shows Sung-jae Im in the lead. However‚ the two-time major champion has competition‚ with Dustin Johnson in position to make a charge. Also‚ Scottie Scheffler and Cameron Smith both have a shot at tying Woods for the lead. Whether Woods will make it into the playoffs or not‚ the 2022 Masters leaderboard is sure to be watched closely.

Sung-jae Im leads the 2022 Masters

Sung-jae Im‚ a young South Korean‚ led the 2022 Masters after an impressive first round on Sunday. After flushing a six-iron into the opening green‚ Im made a 7-foot birdie to open a run of three straight birdies. He then gave up two shots on the back nine‚ but capped his spectacular play with a 24-foot birdie on the par-five 13th hole. Having opened his 2019 season with a 73‚ Im has recovered his form and is in a tie for the lead at Augusta National. Im‚ who shared the runner-up spot with Smith last year‚ shot a 5-under 67 on Thursday. The course was heavily soaked with two inches of rain‚ and Im's opening round was no exception. Im led by one stroke at the halfway point on Thursday. The wind picked up in the afternoon‚ and the leaders fell one spot. Im‚ who won the 2019 Masters‚ is now tied for the lead with Cameron Smith at 15-under. The wind blew a little harder on Monday‚ and Sung-jae Im dropped to T-1 with him. Im is now 1-over on the day. The next-closest competitor‚ Dustin Johnson‚ finished T-3 at 4-under. After the first round‚ the field will be cut to the top 50 players and ties. The wind is expected to play a role on Friday. It will be relatively benign in the early groups‚ but become a major factor as the tournament continues. Forecasts indicate gusts up to 30 mph. In the morning‚ there's a slight chance of rain. That doesn't mean that the event will be cancelled‚ however.

Dustin Johnson is in position to make a charge

While Tiger Woods has skipped the 2022 Masters‚ Dustin Johnson is in position to make hay. He's been making appearances on Augusta National leader boards‚ and he was atop the 18th green board two years ago. Few courses treat past champions as well as Augusta National‚ and his presence on Day 1 is no surprise. However‚ his present has told a different story. While critics have questioned Johnson's putting skills in recent majors‚ the No. 1 player has won three consecutive tournaments. This past June‚ Johnson won the U.S. Open. Despite the talk about him being the favorite‚ Johnson is not one to dwell on the past. With his recent success‚ Johnson is now the first player in 40 years to win three consecutive tournaments. After missing a playoff round at the Cadillac Championship in March of 2016‚ Johnson has remained committed to the PGA Tour. He said on Tuesday that he was confident he'll play in 2022. Tiger has been sidelined for a year due to injuries sustained in a car crash. His decision on game-day will be a major one. However‚ the former Masters champion will do his best to play. The power and athleticism of Dustin Johnson are impressive. While last year‚ he was two shots out of the lead at Augusta National after a double bogey at the 17th hole. Johnson went on to tie for fourth‚ his best finish at Augusta National. The ability to hit a ball that no one else can makes is impressive. The best players in the world have never guaranteed a green jacket. A strong field will be necessary to contend at the 2022 Masters. Hideki Matsuyama‚ who dominated the PGA Tour for several years‚ is also in the mix. However‚ his storied amateur career will not keep him from competing in the 2022 Masters. Despite his recent success in the PGA Tour‚ Johnson will have to prove his mettle in order to win his second major championship.

Scottie Scheffler has a chance to tie Woods for the lead

If he can beat the course record‚ Scottie Scheffler will have a chance to tie the legendary golfer at the next Masters. The young American has never won a major‚ but his steady play has earned him a spot in the top 10. In fact‚ he is currently ranked No. 1 in the world‚ and he is poised to tie Tiger Woods at Augusta. If the tournament is close‚ Scottie Scheffler has a good chance to win the 2022 Masters. His momentum in golf has taken off since January‚ when he was a sleeper. He has won the Bay Invitational‚ the WM Phoenix Open‚ and the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play‚ and he is full of confidence heading to Augusta National. Tiger Woods‚ meanwhile‚ began his round by making five consecutive pars. He then bogeyed the par-5 eighth and was at even par. Tiger Woods is in a tie for 17th after parring his final hole‚ but it may take him until the end of the tournament to catch up with Scheffler. So‚ who will win the 2022 Masters? The odds of Scottie Scheffler tying Tiger Woods for the lead aren't great‚ but Tiger has won every major golf trophy. With his five Masters victories‚ he is one of the most popular athletes in the world. He has more than one title to his name and holds every meaningful trophy in golf. And with his talent and consistency‚ he is capable of taking any tournament by storm. If he wins the Masters‚ he'll win the tournament in 2022. Tiger is unlikely to win the 2022 Masters. However‚ if he finishes inside the top-10‚ he's a good bet to win the event. As for the other players‚ Sergio Garcia is the favorite to win. He has finished inside the top-10 four times this year‚ including the Farmers Insurance Open in January. It won't be easy to catch up to Tiger‚ but he's still the defending champion. Tiger Woods‚ who won the Masters four years ago‚ will be back at Augusta National Golf Club this year. He'll be the first player since the pandemic in February 2021 that forced the tournament to be held in November.

Cameron Smith has a chance to do something that hasn't been done at Augusta National in more than two decades

Adam Smith started his Masters with a double bogey‚ but he soon birdied the par-4 16th and par-5 17th holes to go four under for the tournament. He was two strokes ahead of Sungjae Im at that point. Smith then went on to play the last 12 holes in eight under to take the lead by two. His birdies at the Masters this year have come at a crucial time‚ as the putting will be increasingly difficult as the course dries. Adam Smith has five PGA Tour victories and more than $22 million in prize money. He's an Australian who moved to the Jacksonville area seven years ago and was exhausted after the Players Championship. His three-week off from the Masters made him feel even more rustier. That's a good sign for Smith‚ as he has won three PGA Tour events this year. For the second time this year‚ a British player is on the PGA Tour‚ but has never won the Masters. His recent success in the UK has made him the favorite for the PGA Tour's PGA Tour. He won the Bermuda Championship last year‚ where the conditions were windy. He's a good prospect to win the Masters‚ but he's still not 100 percent healthy. Cameron Smith has the talent to win at Augusta‚ but his ability to putt is a concern. Some critics have compared his putting to that of the all-time greats‚ including young Tiger Woods and Bobby Locke. Smith has credited the Sandbelt courses of Australia for giving him a creative eye for putting. While many golf fans may say that the tournament is too difficult for a first-timer‚ the truth is that it's far from impossible. The green jacket is worn by the winner of the Masters. Even if you've never won at the Masters‚ it's still better than a regular tee shirt‚ and there's extra confidence to be gained if you are the winner.
