The 2013 Masters Tournament kicks off professional golf's major championship season on Thursday, and four-time green jacket winner Tiger Woods is the odds-on favorite to take home the top prize yet again.

However, there are plenty of world-class competitors in the field that will give the No. 1 player in the world a serious run in his bid for major No. 15, including past champions at Augusta, others who have won elsewhere on golf's biggest stages and one golfer whose time may finally be arriving to win his maiden major.

Let's take a closer look at Woods' chances in the context of the outstanding start he's had to the season, as well as his recent history at this event. That will be followed by a breakdown of the top five contenders that have the best chance at challenging the living legend.
