Although the Masters' prohibitive favorite, Tiger Woods, is not among the top five in the world golf rankings, a stellar group of players still hold these spots.

These five have a combined for 57 PGA Tour and European Tour wins, and even though they have just one major championship between them, that number could drastically change soon.
