Jordan Spieth signals his Masters intent
Houston effort may provide take off
Jordan Spieth has reclaimed a share of favouritism in the Masters betting after impressing bookmakers and punters alike with a final-round 66 in the Houston Open on Sunday.
The three-times Major champion and former world number one had been enduring a spell of poor putting, but his flat stick behaved well over his closing 18 holes, sending the Texan to his beloved Augusta with a spring in his step.

Spieth, who can boast Masters form figures of 2-1-2-11, tied for third place in Houston and has settled at a best-price 11-1 for the first Major of the season. Also on that mark are Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas, with Dustin Johnson at 12-1.
Ian Poulter was the last name into the Masters field thanks to a playoff victory in Houston which booked the former Ryder Cup star a ticket for the Georgia showpiece. Poulter is biggest at 66-1 for Augusta glory.
