The 2019 Masters Tournament will be the 83rd edition of the Masters Tournament and the first of golf’s four major championships to be held in 2019.

All eyes are on Rory McIlroy this year as The Ulsterman looks to complete his career grand slam, but there’s some stiff competition throughout the field, namely from many of his young contemporaries like Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, and Rickie Fowler. Of course, we would be remiss without mentioning Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, both of whom are among a litany of names looking to add another green jacket to their respective collections.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — It’s that time of the year where everyone in the golf world has one question on their mind: Who are you picking to win the 2019 Masters? With an 87-man field featuring generational talent going head-to-head at Augusta National, rarely has such a call ever been more difficult.

So who will win the 2019 Masters, and which long shots will stun the golfing world? Visit SportsLine now to see the full projected 2019 Masters leaderboard from the model that nailed Patrick Reed’s victory last year, and find out.

Simply put, this field for the Masters is loaded with stars, including many who have already played tremendous golf in 2019 both on the PGA Tour and worldwide. Narrowing this down to a champion and top finishers is a tough task, but we here at CBS Sports are certainly up to it. Take a look at our 1-87 ranking of the Master’s field, and figure out when your favorites will tee off with our list of Thursday tee times.

Winner — Justin Thomas (16-1): Do I feel good about it? Not really. Am I thrilled with the pick? No. But I rolled with Thomas to start 2019, and I have no intention of deviating from it. There was an hour-long stretch last time around where he got a little frisky and flirted with the top of the board, and one of the things I like best is that he’s improved every year he’s played Augusta National. There’s a clear trajectory there that, when you combine it with his hole-less game, tells me he’s going to contend here for a long, long time.

Sleeper — Hideki Matsuyama (35-1): Matsuyama’s odds dropped from 45-1 or 40-1 to under 40-1 in the last few weeks, but he hasn’t finished outside the top 20 here in the last four seasons. He’s also second on the PGA Tour in approach shots (Thomas is first), and if he putts at all (at all!) he’ll be right there until the end.
Top 10 lock — Rory McIlroy: He hasn’t finished outside the top 10 here since 2013 and hasn’t finished outside the top 10 in any tournament in 2019. I don’t know what else to tell you.
Top 5 in order: Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy, Matt Kuchar, Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau

Surprise prediction: I don’t know if it’s a surprise, but I think Tiger Woods is going to contend early and fade late. He’s coming in with better form than people think, but I think the weight of opening 68-69 will legitimately get to him on the weekend, and he’ll fade to a T15 or something like that. But boy, those first two and a half days will be something.
