MASTERS STORIES RACE TO THE TOP Dustin Johnson has been World No.1 for 59 consecutive weeks – but breathing down his neck is countryman Justin Thomas, who already boasts eight Tour titles as a 24-year-old. Augusta National could very well become the stage for Thomas to achieve his lifelong goal of becoming No.1, while Johnson returns for the first time since having to withdraw after falling down a set of stairs. Thomas’ record at The Masters makes him difficult to back (2017: T22; 2016: T39). But he is playing better golf than anybody on the planet. Johnson, meanwhile, is struggling, after failing to qualify for the knockout stages of the WGCMatch Play. His Masters record is much stronger, however, finishing T4 in 2016 and T6 in 2015. ROSE’S THORNS Justin Rose was pure class after losing to Sergio Garcia in a play-off last year, immediately embracing the champion and telling reporters how much he admired the Spaniard. Rose embodies gentlemanliness. But surely there must be something boiling just below the surface. The Englishman has finished runner-up twice now – bested by Spieth in 2015 – so can he go one step further and win a second major championship? Rose, 37, boasts a strong Masters record with three top-five finishes and hasn’t finished outside the top-25 since 2008.
