Golfers Under 25 Years Old Most Likely to Win the 2014 Masters

Rory MIlroy will be on a mission to make amends for the Masters that got away in 2011.

Considering how there are no real Masters favorites among the very best of golf's elite, why couldn't a player under the age of 25 win the first major of the season?

It has been done before, you know. Tiger Woods won his first Masters at age 21 in 1997. The late Seve Ballesteros won the Masters in 1980 at the age of 23. Jack Nicklaus was also 23 when he put on a green jacket for the first time.

None of the biggest names did much in Florida, unless you consider three good rounds by Rory McIlroy at the Honda Classic and three by Adam Scott in the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The most recent winners on the PGA Tour have been Russell Henley, Chesson Hadley, Patrick Reed, John Senden and Matt Every.

Notice the lack of mention of Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.

Here are five guys under 25 who have a shot at winning the 2014 Masters.
