Chris Kirk Masters Prediction 2023
As mentioned before, it's been seven years since Chris Kirk last stepped foot at Augusta National. Unfortunately, that last experience was hardly anything to write home about as he missed the cut in 2016. He also placed T20 in 2014 and T33 in 2015.

Despite a lengthy absence from the annual spectacle, Kirk shouldn't be counted out if his play this season is any indication. The 37-year-old veteran has a trio of top-three finishes on the 2023 PGA TOUR — including when he won the Honda Classic in February. He also has momentum from a T10 performance at last weekend's Valero Texas Open.
Do I think Kirk will win it all at Augusta? Probably not, but his place this year to inspire some confidence. I expect him to be in the mix throughout the weekend and finish in a respectable position. Having said that, I'm going with a Kirk top-40 finish at -115 odds as the best bet. This option provides decent value while keeping things cautious in case he falters.
