The final round of the 2022 Masters Tournament is set to get underway with 52 players hopeful of donning the coveted green jacket. Conditions at Augusta National for Day 4 are supposed to be different to what they were on Days 2 and 3. We could see some much lower scores on this Sunday.
Giving particular consideration to players who are proficient on par 5s and capable from tee to green, we are targeting numerous Masters 2-ball bets on Sunday. Between the potential softness of Augusta National and the likelihood of pestering winds, ball-striking will become all the more paramount for the 2022 Masters Tournament.

2022 Masters 2-Ball Bets
Joaquin Niemann (-130) Over Christiaan Bezuidenhout
In this Round 4 of 2-ball bet for the Masters, we have two youngsters in Joaquin Niemann and Christiaan Bezuidenhout, who has never experienced being near the top of a leaderboard at the Master's.
The 23-year-old Niemann had a rough score on the third day, shooting a 77, to bring him to +4 on the tournament. His day yesterday was an outlier to the way he has been playing.
With three top-10 finishes, including a victory at the Genesis Invitational, Niemann was in great form heading into the tournament. With much better conditions on Day 4, I expect Niemann to put together a solid round.
Bethuizenhout also had a rough Day 3, shooting a 77, with a 43 on the back nine. he really struggled in the difficult conditions yesterday and hasn't been nearly as consistent at Joaquin this season. If I were to predict which guy would have a better round today, my confidence is 100 percent in Niemann to get it done.
Corey Conners (-165) Over Danny Willett
The reason why I love Corey Conners in this one, is because of his current form in comparison to Danny Willett. In seven tournaments this season, the 30-year-old Canadian has made the cut in eight of his 12 tournaments with a top-10 finish and two 11th place finishes.
Conners is more then capable of shooting a 67 or 68 today if he can limit the bogeys. A common problem with Conners after the first three rounds is that he keeps getting momentum with a birdie, and giving it right back with a bogey to follow. On a day with much better conditions like it will be on Day 4, I expect Conners to put up a solid number.
Danny Willett, on the other hand, has played nine tournaments this year, making the cut in five, and finishing outside the top-30 in each of his last five.
I expect Conners to continue his solid play on this Sunday, considering the fact that Conners is one of the best at hitting greens in regulation. He is ranked third on the tour in that category, which will bode well for him today.
Viktor Hovland (-125) Over Hideki Matsuyama
I know Hideki Matsuyama is the defending champion, but I am going to fade him today just because Hovland always finds a way up near the top in tournaments.
Hovland is in much better form right now finishing in the top-10 in four of the 10 events he has participated in this season, including a victory at the World Wide Technology Championship in Mexico. He had an up-and-down day yesterday, but his five birdies and his -2 on the back nine told me everything I need to know about the way he is playing.
Matsuyama got off to a brutal start to his third round, sitting at +4 through the first seven holes. When Matsuyama is struggling to find fairways, it makes it real tough to score well, especially at Augusta. The Japan native ranks 95th in driving accuracy (60.5%), while Hovland ranks 40th (64.3%).
My concern for the 2021 Master's winner is that he looked very shaky yesterday. His 77 was the highest round he has shot this season. He's more than capable of bouncing back, but when you see a round like that, you cannot help but fade him.
Like I said, Hovland always finds a way up and around the top-10 on the final day, and I expect the same today. It wouldn't suprise me if he shoots a 67 or 68 today.
I think you're getting some value on the Norwegian at this price. I hate to fade Matsuyama at Augusta, but I got to go with the golfer that is coming off a much better day and is in better form overall. Take Hovland at -125.
