Now that the wait is finally over for the 2013 Masters, we can all watch closely to see if Tiger Woods will win his fifth green jacket and 15th major championship.
However, since Woods won his last major title at the U.S. Open in 2008, there have been 16 different major winners in the 18 events. Needless to say, there are plenty of players with an excellent chance at slipping on the green jacket on Sunday.
There are three golfers who stand out against the rest as the favorites to win the 2013 Masters: Tiger Woods (3-1), Rory McIlroy (8-1) and Phil Mickelson (10-1).
(All odds are according to VegasInsider.com.)
Everyone else will play the underdog role. There are three aspects to look at when trying to pick the golfer that will triumph the field at Augusta National: greens in regulation with solid iron and wedge play, the ability to get up-and-down and make putts and getting hot at the right time.
Remember, four of the last six players to win the Masters still only have one major championship under their belts.
These are the golfers who will give Woods, McIlroy and Mickelson a run on Sunday.
