KJ Choi is an obvious candidate here. He ranks 14th in the world and has three top-10 finishes in the Masters. Yet he never really gets the attention of the media compared to golfers of similar achievement.
So while a win in retrospect would not surprise people, he likely will not be discussed much prior to the Masters.
Angel Cabrera simply cannot be counted out at Augusta. The enigmatic two-time major champion has fallen to 147th in the world rankings. However, Augusta seems to bring out his best game.
The 2009 Masters champion has recorded five top-10 finishes at Augusta since 2001. He played in the final group last year, finishing seventh.
Bo Van Pelt seems to be blooming in his middle 30s. He has climbed to 31st in the world rankings after being out of the top 150 only two years ago. In his debut at Augusta last year, he finished eighth.
After numerous close calls over the last two seasons, Van Pelt managed to grab a victory at the Asia Pacific Classic. He does very well on par-5 holes, ranking 10th on the PGA Tour last season. This could be a major asset at Augusta.
