First-round play has begun in the 75th Masters at Augusta National. We'll be here throughout Round 1 with scores, analysis and news from the year's first major.

Defending champion Phil Mickelson is the odds-on favorite to win, but picking any one player in a strong field of 99 golfers is difficult, at best.

The high ranking Europeans are all here, including Lee Westwood, Martin Kaymer, Graeme McDowell and the Molinari brothers, Francesco and Edoardo.

The young Americans are well represented, in Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson and Rickie Fowler, to name just a few.

But if you are seriously wondering who will win this golf tournament, it is a safe bet it will be someone who has done well on this course in the past.

Throughout its long history, the winners at Augusta are almost always players who know the course and have played it well in the past.

Mickelson and Tiger Woods head the list of players with great success at Augusta National.  Other recent winners in the field include Zach Johnson, Angel Cabrera and Trevor Immelman.

And of course, you can never count out some of the older champions on this course.  Some of the 45-plus group that you can't totally rule out include Fred Couples, Tom Watson, Jose Maria Olazabal and Vijay Singh.
