DraftKings offers birdie boost for Hideki Matsuyama & Xander Schauffele at Masters

The final group at Augusta National on Sunday will have a nice bonus for bettors if they put down a wager at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Hideki Matsuyama and Xander Schauffele will be the final group at the 85th Masters Tournament today, with Matsuyama holding a four-shot lead on the field at -11.

It’s been a particularly challenging week for golfers at the course, but hole No. 2 continues to be a great birdie opportunity for all players. Pink Dogwood is a 575-yard Par 5 dogleg left that always ranks as one of the easiest holes at Augusta National Golf Club. It played to a 4.5 stroke average yesterday, with 31 birdies, 19 pars, and 4 bogeys.

And now at DraftKings Sportsbook you can pick up a boost for a few extra dollars if either Matsuyama or Schauffele manage to find a red number on No. 2. With a Birdie Boost from DK, the odds for one of the two to make a four or better have been reduced from -400 to -125. It’s a terrific bet on two of the top players in the field.

Matsuyama made birdie on Thursday, but par on both Friday and Saturday this year, and Schauffele had birdies on both Thursday and Saturday.
