Masters week has arrived. The course is waiting with its tough greens and beautiful atmosphere for both pros and fans alike.
The buildup will be tremendous, considering what Tiger Woods did at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Of course, Woods finally claimed his first win since taking a break when his long list of indiscretions became very public in 2009.
Not surprisingly, he's the man to beat if you look at the betting. He will be on a quest to take home his fifth green jacket, and his first since 2005.
Woods is a (4/1) favorite, according to Las Vegas Sports Betting.
Rory McIlroy comes in behind Woods, sporting (11/2) odds with Phil Mickelson polishing off the top three with (11/1) chances.
Keegan Bradley, the local guy from Woodstock, VT has (33/1) odds, good enough for 9th best on the list.
Hunter Mahan made himself a trendy pick by taking victory in the Houston Shell Open on Sunday. He now has (28/1) odds for anyone willing to take a chance on his talents.
Another dark-horse to consider is Dustin Johnson, who many pundits believe is one of the real young studs in golf. He's a semi-long shot with a (40/1) bet next to his name.
It all gets underway Thursday morning in venerable Augusta, Georgia for the nation to behold.
