Mito Pereira Masters Prediction 2023
Over his last 50 rounds, Pereira does posses top-10 rankings in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green, Ball Striking and Approach. But those are from last year as Pereira has not played in a PGA Tour event in 2023 as he defected to the LIV Golf Tour and qualified for the Masters via his third place finish at the 2022 PGA Championship. Don't expect him to be a surprise contender come Sunday like he was at the 2022 PGA Championship.

Playing at Augusta National for the first time is a major challenge for most golfers as they learn the nuances and adjust to the severe elevation changes, uneven lies and lightning fast and steeper sloping greens. Pereira's putting is problematic and he's lost strokes gained putting in a vast majority of his tournaments since last summer. As an unknown performer at Augusta playing and putting on these greens for the first time, it's hard to recommend betting on him at the 2023 Masters. Perhaps a workable option is a top-40 finish for Pereira at -115 odds, which would be a pretty good accomplishment to make the cut and move up a bit on debut.
