The Masters is this week, played in November for the first time ever. But it's still the Masters! The field is tremendous, the course is iconic, and the only question is how much the golf course will play like the one we see (and will see again in 5 months) in April.

Our top 10 is a ranking of the best players in the field -- BUT they're not always the best bets! Want our top picks?

2020 Masters rankings: Top 10 picks

1. Dustin Johnson: DJ has been on a tear. He hasn't finished worse than T-6 in his last six starts. He was T-2 here last year.

2. Bryson DeChambeau: Bryson's strategy here is clear, and if he executes, he will be almost impossible to stop. But, will he? Also, how will he look with a month away from competitive golf?

3. Xander Schauffele: Xander has pretty well established at this point that he's the mainstay of major championship top-10s in his generation. Now, can he win one?

4. Matthew Wolff: Wolff has finished T-4 and second in his two pro major starts. That's good. His pedestrian finishes at Shadow Creek and Sherwood were not.

5. Justin Thomas: It's easy to overlook JT at times, and he might feel that way right now. But he's always a solid player.

6. Brooks Koepka: This is absolutely recency bias. Koepka shot a pair of weekend 65s in Houston (after spending the first two rounds testing a new driver he didn't use in the final two rounds) to finish T-5. If four-time-major-winner Brooks is back, look out.

7. Rory McIlroy: Something's wrong with Rory, and part of it is that the lack of crowds has sucked some life out of him. Even still, no worse than T-21 in his last four starts.

8. Jon Rahm: Rahm was runner-up at Sherwood, his best finish since pre-US Open, when he was fabulous. The "he'll win on a hard setup" theory didn't totally pan out at Winged Foot, but he is a class player.

9. Patrick Reed: Psst. P. Reed is playing great golf again. Been strong in his last four starts. Has no problem finding motivation.

10. Tyrrell Hatton: Hatton throws in a few skunky ones here and there, but he won the BMW PGA, did great in the Tour Championship, took T-3 at Shadow Creek and was T-7 in Houston.
