Brooks Koepka is the reigning champion going into 2019, and we be amongst the favourite to secure the title.
Koepka wants to become the fourth player in history to win ten Majors, but Tigers Woods is out to stop him.
This year the tournament has switched to March, Woods another contender for the trophy.
Koepka insisted: “There are 156 in the field, so you figure at least 80 of them I’m just going to beat.
“From there you figure about half of them won’t play well, so you’re down to about maybe 35.
“And then from 35, the pressure is going to get to some of them. It only leaves you with a few more, and you’ve just got to beat those guys.
“I think one of the big things that I’ve learned over the last few years is you don’t need to win it, you don’t have to try to go win it.
