It’s the week every golfer across the world looks forward to. The season’s opening major signals the unofficial start of the golf season and the whole planet gears up in hope of a successful season. This feeling is also true for the TaylorMade athletes, building up their game to peak for Augusta in a bid to don the coveted Green Jacket come Sunday night. The competition this week is as fierce as ever! To celebrate the TaylorMade athletes, UK artist Scott McRoy was commissioned to create a set of unique illustrations for 'The Contenders' that are bidding to be crowned champions come Sunday night.

Jon Rahm – The Rookie

Jon Rahm turned pro on June 20, 2016. Less than 10 months later, Rahm has already won his first Tour event, risen from 551st to 12th in the world, jumped to 4th in the FedExCup Standings, and qualified for his first trip to Augusta. With power and panache in his repertoire, as well as a deadly putter in the shape of the Spider Tour Limited, 'Rahmbo' could well end the 38 year wait for a rookie victory.

Very much a people’s champion, you’d be hard pressed to find a golf fan that wouldn’t love to see the Matador win a major. With 2017 looking extremely bright following the engagement to Angela Akins and a stellar victory in Dubai, the golfing world wouldn’t be too surprised to see Sergio reign supreme on the rolling fairways of Augusta this week.

242296 tm%20masters%20icon%20jd%201200x600px e15424 large 1491297040

With a world class short game and an outstanding putting stroke, Jason Day has become a specialist when it comes to mastering the tricky greens at Augusta. Favouring a right to left ball flight, the combination of power hitting and short game means Jason’s game is certainly set up for the season opener.

Sat atop the World Golf Rankings, Dustin Johnson is showing no signs of slowing down as he heads to Augusta looking for a 4th win in 4 outings. With the long game power that DJ has in abundance, paired with the hottest putter on tour, DJ is an obvious favourite for the Green Jacket.
