The US Masters, the first golf major of the year, takes place at Augusta National from April 8-11 with world number one Dustin Johnson the defending champion.

Johnson got his first green jacket in 2020 when winning at Augusta as the delayed major took place in November. Could he go back-to-back in the 2021 Masters?

In a hotly-contested Masters, three players offer value and are in the suggested winner bets.

Dustin Johnson

Dustin Johnson broke records last year when winning the Masters for the first time. His 20-under-par total was the lowest winning score in the history of the major and earned him a five-shot victory over Sungjae Im and Cameron Smith.

It was a hoodoo broken for the long-standing world number one, who had recorded top 10 finishes in his previous four appearances at the Masters including when runner-up in 2019.

Johnson has had a quiet last five weeks, finishing 54th in the WGC-Mexico Championship and 48th in the Players Championship before suffering defeat to Kevin Na in the the WGC Matchplay.

But I expect him to be primed for Augusta. He has won four times since last July, including the win in the Masters, finished runner-up four times and recorded two other top-10 finishes, and a return to the kind of form is expected.

Justin Thomas

Justin Thomas produced his best Augusta result last year when finishing fourth, albeit eight shots behind Dustin Johnson.

His results in the Masters have improved for each visit to Augusta, from 39th in 2017 to fourth last year. With that sequence of improvement, he comes into my reckoning.

Thomas could add another major to his victory in the USPGA Championship in 2017.

Thomas produced his best form to take out the Players Championship, regarded as golf's fifth major, last month and he can go close at Augusta.

Sungjae Im

South Korean talent Im announced himself as a star of the future when finishing tied runner-up in last year's Masters. 

Having been PGA Tour crowned rookie of the year the previous season, Im won for the first time on tour at the Honda Classic 2020. 

He pushed Johnson for three rounds at Augusta before coming up short on the final day. But he left a lasting impression on golf fans.

Im has been in consistent form this season too. He was fifth in the Tournament of Champions and eighth as defending champion in the Honda Classic.

With six top 20 finishes from nine tournaments, you should get a run for your money at value odds.
