IT'S almost time for the Masters and world No.1 Dustin Johnson is seeing plenty of backing from punters.
William Hill are also seeing interest in a course record – presumably by big-hitting Johnson – which has now been cut to 10-1 from 16-1.
Hills spokesman Rupert Adams said: “There are a certain group of our customers who cannot see past Dustin and there are some that think we are going to see a winning score similar to Tiger Woods when he romped to victory in 1997.”
